    I’m currently rotating through three formulas of one brand (38/18, 38/18, 38/20). The next brand I plan to use is 38/20 as well.

    I see a lot of you give advice that states that a dog has to get accustomed to eating a rich food. Once your dog is used to the higher levels of protein/fat, do you guys have a minimum level that a food must have to be included in your rotation?

    Hi Case –

    It really depends on what your dog does best on, although most dogs with a strong gut will be able to handle foods with all difference ranges of protein and fat. I know when I fed kibble I typically liked the formulas I used to have at least 30% protein and 15% fat, although sometimes if all other qualities of a formula and its company were outstanding I’d make exceptions.

    I’m in the process of researching the price and protein/fat levels of all of the five star rated foods. I intend to eliminate Canidae Grain Free Pure and Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete from my rotation. I’m hoping to find a couple of brands with a few different protein sources >30%.

    If you’re looking for reasonably priced 5 star options I’d suggest Dr. Tim’s and Victor.
