    I thought I did all my research before getting the pup and settled on Blue Buffalo Freedom, but now I'm seeing tons of negative things about that brand.

    Every site I go to has a different ranking. I just want to feed my go the most natural and healthy food there is.

    Any suggestions?

    My vet pushes that hard. Too hard in my opinion so I've stayed away from it.

    Wellness complete health, deboned chicken and oatmeal flavored. She loves it and she rarely if ever gets diarrhea while on it. It's expensive though about $60 for a 30lb bag.

    I feed my dog a combination of wet food and dry food. I sometimes add a little pasta or some vegetables. I add some water and let it set for a few minutes and the microwave it for about forty seconds.
    My vet said all the dry foods are about the same. I buy what's on sale.

    Canidae. It's not easy to find. You can get it on Amazon though. Anyone who feeds their pets garbage from the grocery store shouldn't have pets.

    I've never had it pushed on me. This is the second dog I've used it with and no issues. I get a good deal online and the new dog took to it well. They offer several choices and the reviews are OK with me.

    I used to feed my dog California Natural until they had a bunch of recalls, now I use Canidae Life Stages (Chicken & Rice). Not overly expensive ($10.99 for a 5 lb. bag), natural and holistic and formulated for all ages, breeds, and sizes and he loves it - the pieces of kibble are smaller and easier for him to chew than the other brand. Canidae had a recall years ago when they were sharing manufacturing space with another company, after that they built their own facility and haven't had any other problems I'm aware of. Several other people I know use the same food and have also had good results.

    I have cats, but I used to feed them California Natural, too. They started to vomit immediately after eating it. I would never recommend that brand.

    A Vet I used to go to told me that Science Diet gives a lot of incentives and free stuff to Vets to get them to push their products.

    I think Wellness is a good overall brand, too. My cats eat it. They just came out with a new type of canned & they love it.
