Our new furbaby (no name yet) will be coming home at the end of July. Breeder is currently feeding Blue Buffalo. I've never used BB but their recall history and possible link to heart disease doesn't give me warm fuzzies. Any suggestions on food? I know I'll get a bazillion different answers so if you can state why that would be helpful. Thanks!

We have had great success with Iams, Eukanuba and Royal Canin. All puppies lived long, healthy and trouble free lives. Well, except for the mischief they get into!

I've been feeding Kirkland for years. Only 1 recall since 2009 and that recall was for most all dog food brands.

Gets good ratings too.

We also feed Kirkland chicken & rice (same as diamond naturals chicken & rice). Our dogs have done well with it. My Nell will be 15 at the end of July; we’ve had several others live into their teens including an ex racing greyhound.

We have had good luck with Costco's Kirkland brand as well. We avoid the grain free products after reading several studies like this:

Due to allergies with our older Wire Fox Terrier we had him on a boutique grain free brand until we moved ProPlan Salmon & Rice after having a DCM scare when he was 10. Thankfully, he was fine but after education about the DCM issue we stayed with ProPlan. Both my oldest 13 now passed, and middle 3yo LOVE the ProPlan. We just adopted another WFT and we have him on ProPlan Puppy, he loves it too. I like that both are easy to find, reasonable priced and the dogs love it. Those salmon nuggets are gone first.

We'd taken our dog to the WSU Vet school when we had the DCM scare recommended it, as well as a few other brands.

I use pedigree for the Collies along with people food. Tonight their meal will be chicken, pasta and broccoli with cheese. I'm having a salad, what's wrong with this picture. LOL

Since we go to Costco every 1-1/2 to 2 months to purchase 6-7 40# bags of food, price is a important factor in our choice of food. Boutique dog food does not fit in our budget.

The Goof, a 60 pound Aussum Shepherd, has a sensitive stomach, vet really pushed Purina Pro Plan, but Goof didn't want to eat it, he had sour/noisy gut 2 or 3 days a week, and wanted to graze. we finally setteled on pro plan, chicken and rice, with a scoop of "Ruff Greens" and a splash of chicken broth.
And the wife says I spoil him.
