I've never used Core but I do have Zoe on Wellness Just For Puppy. To me, it smells like salmon and she absolutely loves it. She looks great too. I do believe Core got a 6 star rating on dogfoodanalysis.com...so you picked a good one. How's it working out??
Since I normally feed only raw, I only will do a grainless kibble. I got the ocean whitefish flavor, and the seemed to like it - Its only for a day, because I thawed out my raw tonight but it was a good filler and will use the rest as treats and kong stuffers.
The protein content was one of my concerns with most of the 6 start products. I do know that the salmon in the taste of the wild line has a lower protein content am considering trying that over the summer.
but is a high protein content a good thing or sometimes a bad thing...what is a good protein level for boxers?
I'm trying to find a good food for Phoenix and looking around but the protein content is one thing I don't know about.
What's a good balance of protein, fat and calorie content on a food?
I just started Izzie on the Wellness Core - Reduced Fat formula because the fat content in EVO was too high and she's been gaining weight instead of losing it! We're still in the process of switching her over, but she loves it and it's a grain-less kibble so you can't go wrong there. We have Beckham on 50% raw (at night) and he's on EVO-red meat small bites for his morning food, so I'm a big proponent for raw and or grainless kibble if it's at all possible (financially or availability). The Core is the first Wellness product (besides the Wellness treats) that I've purchased and I've heard great things!
