Default Blue Buffalo VS Solid Gold

I live in the central Texas area so the same dog foods that are fed on this website are not readily available to me. I'm currently feeding Blue Buffalo Life Protection Large Breed Puppy, the chicken and rice formula. I occasionally feed a cannot wet food at night. I'm interested in the solid gold brand, especially the wolf cub large breed puppy bison flavor.

Any feedback or experience will be greatly appreciate. I'm not finding the information I want online.

Thanks so much for you time!

There is nothing wrong with those foods, BUT if you want another one.. check dog.com or chewy.com they tend to have a TON more brands and ship anywhere.

I have fed Solid Gold Wolf Cub and the Wolf King and I liked both.

I also fed Blue Buffalo LBP and Blue Wilderness.

I liked both brands. Either one is fine.

Is Wellness available to you? I personally prefer the Wellness products over Blue and Solid Gold.

Oh and I fed BB and Titan did well on it, he just got picky. I also fed Solid Gold.. again Titan did well, just got picky.. Fromm was awesome.. he'd still be on that if he didn't have allergies.

You actually have a big choice on dogfood delivered to your doorstep with free shipping.
doggiefood.com. I wouldn't feed BB if it were free. You can do better especially for the price. Check out the website, they have most brands.

I'm actually really curious, why wouldn't you feed BB?

I have been looking at large breed puppy foods as I will be getting a puppy shortly. I emailed BB and asked about Ash levels in the large breed wilderness formula. They said it is 9%, so for this reason I will stay away. I did feed BB basic to my older dog and it worked fine for her. I may go to their adult formula in the future.

I had good luck with lots of Solid Gold products.
I also used the Sea meal also, with very good results.

Just depends on what agrees with your dog too!!
