    Veterinarians are recommending grain-inclusive, avoid peas, legumes and potato at least not have them in the first 10 ingredients due to the FDA alert I am sure you have heard about.

    If your dogs are doing well I would consult your vet regarding if making a change for your dogs is indicated at this time based on their individual needs. If you have been taking them in for annuals I am sure your vet wouldn’t mind returning a call.

    Hi I agree with Anon. But the only thing I don’t like is the fact that they are using pea protein. That is a bad way to boost the protein in dog food. I am a firm believer that pea protein is not good at all for dogs, but that is just my opinion. However like Anon said ask your vet about it. For me personal I avoid any dog food that has pea protein even if it is grain in.

    I am finding it very difficult to find dog food, dry or wet, that does not contain peas, potatoes or chick peas. Any suggestions?

    My dog is a very picky eater I’ve tried everything from raw to organic, from what the vet suggested. I finally decided to tried cheaper brands but no she still would eat, one day I saw open nature and thought what do i got to lose she loves it. So there you have I just sprinkle some probiotics and prebiotics and it and she’s good to go.
