Default Taste of the Wild vs Nutro

I know Taste of the Wild is better.. thats no question. I'm just wondering HOW much better. The pet store sells it here (wasn't sold where I lived before) and I'd love to switch the boys to it now that we're getting low on the current bag of Nutro. Anyone else feeding TOTW?

I feed TOTW now. I started on Eukanuba (my Breeders choice) and changed to Solid Gold. Abby had pudding poops on the Solid Gold, so we tried TOTW and no more poop problems. I know that there are some people who don't like TOTW due to the company that makes it, but it works for me and is an improvement over what I fed in the past. And another good thing is that my picky eaters actually like it!

I'm feeding it to Ava. Just started on her on it about a week and half ago. She absolutely LOVES it. I really cannot recall her ever reacting this well to a food before. She really liked Natural Balance and did very well on it it but there was never such excitement about her food as there is now. But, then again ask me this again in 2 months when the "newness" has warn off! I think you should give it a try!

I fed TOTW Pacific Stream until very recently - about two weeks ago.

When I first got my Abby, she had a very finnicky stomach and we tried a lot of different foods. We eventually went to raw, which worked great for her once she initially got used to it, but then moved to a place where we could not get the same amount of raw ingredients, so we decided to switch to a grain free. Originally switched to Merrick Before Grains, but she had very soft poops on that. Then switched to TOTW and she did great on that, no poop issues and really liked it.

When I got Ronja, I put her onto TOTW as well and she did great on it, too. No poop issues or anything, although she didn't really gain any weight on it.

Now that we moved to the cold north, I switched them to Wellness CORE, which has higher calories per cup. Had no issues making the switch and they're both doing good on it thus far, but it's only been about two weeks.

Definitely recommend the TOTW.

I switched Max to the TOTW Salmon after he was diagnosed with discoid lupus. He was on candidae (not grain free). He's doing very well. Poops are better, he likes it (this week at least), and it seems to help with the inflammation on his nose. I add vit e per the vet's recommendation.

I recommend it.

I feed TOTW and my two do great on it!! They both have tummy issues so this is great for them...they get High Prairie. I also heard that TOTW is soon to come out with canned foods to match their kibble and I for one can't wait Eventually I want to try them on Pacific Stream, but with their tummies, I am kind of scared to try. I will say that over time, my rescue girl has gained weight on HP

I feed TOTW too, switched over from Blue Buffalo. My boy's fur became so much softer and shinier after the switch, and he loves it! The cat loves it too, this is the only food I've seen where she tries to sneak dog food, but she's on Wellness Core.

We fed TOTW for awhile to both our GSDs and they did fine on it. We are not feeding it anymore as we used it as an adjunct to raw and now are doing just raw, but I will say that Allie came to us on Nutro from her foster home and while she was doing good, she did significantly better on TOTW. (better coat, overall general health ect). I also have to add that even though they did fine on the TOTW, raw really makes a huge difference I feel in their coats and poop quality and amount... but it is not always possible for us to do raw all the time and every meal so using TOTW did work in their diet as well. It is also nice that we can get it local and that it is a nice price (or was) compared to many grain free foods.

Try it and see if it works for your pups! Good Luck!
