    I was using Pedigree dry food, have been for years..

    Abby started putting to much weight on, so I came her asking..

    I ended up changing her to Pro Balance, getting it at Wal Mart..

    Now I have run into two others with big dogs and they are using Taste of the wild..

    It is available in my area at the Tractor Supply..

    Can I get some feed back of this type of feed.. Have you used it and what are the results. Do you like it does the dog like it..

    TOTW is an OK food. On the one hand, it’s grain free, and they have a few “semi limited ingredient” diets for dogs with mild sensitivities. Its price point makes it a good introductory grain free diet. On the other hand, while it is grain free, it is high in actual carbohydrate content. It is also manufactured by Diamond, a disreputable dog food company with a history of many recalls. TOTW itself was recalled a few years ago.

    Here on DFA, they are both rated similarly. I think if your dog is responding well to the Pure Balance (losing weight appropriately), you like its price point, and your vet has no concerns, I would stay with Pure Balance. There is no rule, however, that you could rotate between the foods to give her something different.

    Thanks for the excellent reply..

    One thing I never knew was the Diamond manufactured this product..Heard to many bad things about Diamond’s products..

    Abby seems to like and enjoy the Pro Balance. I put her on this food about a month ago..But only on the Salmon dry food, the other day I opened a small bag of Bison and Pea food, she will not touch it..

    I also tried just dry food morning and night. She got into a sulking mood and never ate for two days..So I had to go back to wet food in the mornings..

    Thanks.. I think I’ll stick with Pro Balance for now..
