    Have you looked at First Mate? Like the link for Sport that I suggested, I have no experience with this brand.

    This might not work since it has potatoes, but here is one example of their kibble:
    https://firstmate.com/product/pacific-ocean-fish-meal-original-formula/

    Here is one without potatoes (but it has oatmeal):
    https://firstmate.com/product/cage-free-chicken-meal-oats-formula/

    They have a food selection guide that weeds out ingredients such as peas:

    Again, sorry that I have not tried this brand – just trying to help.

    I just did a quick search and found this site – https://sportdogfood.com

    I have never heard of this brand – just found it by a web search and thought I’d pass it along.

    Daniel K.,

    I couldn’t have said it better!!! I’ve been researching a new food and am at the point where I’m thinking about using a service offered by Tufts Vet school that will provide 3 commercial foods and 1 home recipe – based on a consultation with one of their nutritionists.

    I went through this about 6 years ago when Evo was sold – don’t remember it being this difficult. I selected Brothers Complete. I was happy with their kibble until one of my dogs had an issue with it – prompting me to begin my research. I have to say that Richard from Brothers has always responded to email, but I’m not comfortable with some of his answers since they don’t answer my questions. Perhaps my questions were not clear. He has even provided his cell phone number, but I have not contacted him because I need to do more research on some of the ingredients I have questions about.

    The issue for me is trust. It’s maddening because I’m trying to provide the best (and safest) food possible, but after weeks of research and sleepless nights, I’m beginning to feel hopeless!

    Just thought I’d let you know you are not alone!
