Default Diamond Naturals

I'm thinking of switching Zeus/Zoey from Iams to Diamond Naturals today. From what I've read, it seems like a good dog food and much better than Iams. Anyone here feed there dogs this dog food?

I use diamond naturals chicken and rice and my dogs love it. Perfect amount of protein and grain free. Price is also better then any other grain free foods.

It is a good food at a good price, but it is not grain free. Rice is a grain and so is barley.

I don't see any wheat in the ingredients. What makes you think it has ground wheat?

Okay so I shopped around today and decided to get Blue Buffalo Life Protection Formula for puppies. Tractor Supply has the 30 lb bags for $51 which beats both Petsmart and Petco. I also picked up some Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Bison treats which the two dogs go crazy for. Now I'm assured my dogs are getting the proper nutrition there body's require without all that crap in it. I'm sure on the bag of Iams there's an ingredient listed "meat" lol! God knows what that is!

Iams is as bad as it gets and the price is a joke. Blue, would be your best bet out of those 3.. I feed Orijen and once in a great while Horizon Legacy, so I have no experience with any of these 3. I just don't like the ingredient list of any of them. I would recommend adding fresh meat with every meal...

I give Tony little raw balls of ground beef for treats. He goes nuts for them and if you check out the prices the real meat is cheaper.
