Anybody using Artemis? just switched from Nutro lamb&rice to Artemis adult.  Junior is 1 year old and will pretty much eat anything in sight so the transition was easy.  The only draw-back is the $$$!.  $58/33lb bag.  Any feedback on this food would be appreciated.

It seems alot of the ingredients in the high end foods are pretty similar, except that the Artemis had the salmon meal/oil in it which i thought would be helpful for his coat.  Some of the other mentioned foods didnt have the fish meal in them(excluding fish-based flavors) that was the reason why i finally went with Artemis.  Thanks for your feedback :)
