Maddie is eating Canidae now. She eats about 3 cups a day. A 40 lb. bag costs me $43 and lasts about a month. *

Dixie and Champ have been on Canidae for about a month. *Each gets three cups daily in three feedings. *I add cooked lean ground meat or chicken to their evening meal. *They get treats in between. *I pay $37.00 plus tax for a 40 lb bag.

I have been feeding Nutro Natural Choice, but noticed my pet store carried Chicken Soup, so I'm switching over to that. I also asked if they could start carrying Canidae, waiting to hear about *that....Samson gets 1 cup morning & evening...Angel gets 1 1/2 cups morning & evening...When I add things like carrots, green beans, etc, I cut down on the kibble to balance it out....

I tried the Blue Buffalo, my 2 loved the taste, but it really gave them both the runs real bad and I did a very slow transition.....Surprisingly, the Chicken Soup costs me less than the Nutro...Blue is also very high priced, I think I was paying $38 for a 30 lb bag

We feed Bil-Jac large breed(our Teaki is very sensitive to most foods and after trying many different brands of high/low/middle end foods this is the only one she will eat and loves) it isn't rated well due to the corn but the dogs love it, it dissolves very quickly and they are doing terrific on it, great coats and tons of energy.

Switched from Beneful to Merrick Turducken yesterday. *Once the transition is over, I plan on about 6 cups daily max. Merrick is $24 for 15lb bag. *I'll buy larger now that I know he will eat it.

Right now I'm doing 1.25 cups Beneful and 0.75 cups Turducken. *Will switch to 1:1 this weekend. *Already seeing benefit to new food. *Less diarrhea, no grass eating and he is a lot slower eating it for some reason. *He still drops loads as big as my head, though. *

Hoosier eats Merrick dry. He can't handle any canned food. He eats about 3 cups daily of the dry. I add water to his evening meal. Been about 40 bucks a month.

Beckham is on Solid Gold-Wolf Cub Large Breed Puppy -Bison/Salmon. *He gets usually gets 2 cups 2x's a day (almost 8 months old). *Unless he's going thru a growth spurt, then we'll give him 3cups 2x's a day.
A 33lb bag usually lasts us a month and is $44, we are going to start switching him to the Solid Gold -Wolf King Large Breed Adult - Bison/Salmon soon and that is $41 for a 33lb bag. *I decided to keep him on the Solid Gold because his coat is just beautiful and it seems to agree with him.
We have also been mixing in a 1/2 can of either Merrick's Puppy Plate or Wilderness Blend, once a week and they are $2 a can.

Mine are currently on Canine Caviar Holistic Grain Free Venison. They were on Orijen and Acana and they started having some stool issues. Now on Canine Caviar they are doing better, their poops are nice and formed and less stinky.
