Anyone use Diamond Natural?
 
Looking into their Large Breed Adult or "Extreme Athlete" formulas.

We currently feed Fromm but one of my GSD's seems to have bad gas frequently.

Talked to a couple people (no GSD owners) that really like the line.

Extreme Athlete gave my guys diarrhea. I used the adult beef and rice for a while but noticed Tasha's coat got really dull and dry. Just switched them to Tractor Supply brand and already she is looking better. :)

I use the Extreme Athlete on all my dogs. I am just careful to not over feed them. My 92 lb GSD gets two cups a day. My Mini Doxie gets 1/2 cup. My elder Golden gets 1 & 1/2 cups and my Lacy gets 1 cup. Everyone gets raw chicken in the morning. I rarely have poop problems with any of them. My Golden is the only one that I tend to have to watch, but he's older and has other medical problems.

I also use Extreme Athlete with good results. Sometimes I alternate with their Large Breed Chicken & Rice or Lamb & Rice.

I use the regular Chicken and Rice and Extreme Athlete. I feed about 3 cups a day to my girls.

If I knock it down to 2 cups, poop gets really firm. I suppose I should go to 2.5 cups.

My dog's had the same reaction to it! Coat got very dull and skin got flaky! Switched back to 4health grain free turkey and potato formula.

I have Harley on the Turkey and Potato. He really likes it. Did have him on Diamond Natural Beef and Rice.

Daisy eats the extreme athlete and the other dogs eat Professional (made by diamond). We have had no problems. They are all very healthy and their coats look great. We chose the extreme athlete for Daisy because she is very thin. It didn't help much, but it didn't hurt either.

Just watch out for recalls, no matter what brand you choose.

I have used diamond naturals beef, chicken, lamb meal, and Lgbreed adult and puppy. I still do if i run out of raw food or about to run out. Its awesome and here in Ohio its like $30 for 40lbs.
