I was at costco today and got a 40 lb bag of there chicken rice and vegetable which cost 19.99 I currently have my dogs on Orijen but as I posted in my last post if i get approved and start fostering I dont think I will be able to afford my current food which costs me 55-60 bucks for a 33lbs bag so I was looking for alternative and someone on here mention the food from Costco.  They also have a lamb rice and vegetable.  Anyone have any  experince with food and thinks its something that would be good for me to switch to let me know.

We used the lamb and rice brand by Kirkland for about 3 years.  Our dogs did very well on it but Calli had a rock gut and could/would eat anything and Berkeley was a rescue who had been starved so she might have eaten anything too!   8O

55-60 bucks for 33 pounds.....wow!  I don't blame you for looking for a cheaper option.  

Just looking quick at the ingredients for Kirkland Signature, it definitely looks ok.  Personally would like to see one other meat protein within the top ingredients and the total protein amount is a little low for an adult, but there really are no real red flags here:


Chicken, chicken meal, whole grain brown rice, cracked pearl barley, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and vitamin E), egg product, beet pulp, potatoes, fish meal, flaxseed, natural flavor, brewers dried yeast, millet, potassium chloride, salt, choline chloride, carrots, peas, kelp, apples, dried skim milk, cranberry powder, rosemary extract, parsley flake, dried chicory root, glucosamine hydrochloride, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, chondroitin sulfate, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin, vitamin D supplement, folic acid.
