Thanks all. I returned it at got a smaller bag. I have tried all the other things - rice and boiled meat, pumpkin etc... I guess it is worth a try. Actually I checked the prices on chewy.com and my vet was significantly cheaper, for what that is worth. It is still crap food for an expensive price.
Now I have another question that came up in the course of getting this food, but I started a new thread for that.

On my last Vet visit I explained to the doc that I could not afford their prices and would be getting any prescription at Sam's Club since they started filling them. Not wanting to lose out on the money my Vet agreed to match whatever price Sam's or any other place offered.
Most Vets do have a heart you just need to explain your situation to them. Most will help you out.

I stopped going to my vet for that reason, they're always trying to sell me something. I stopped trusting them because of that. It seemed like they didn't care about anything but money.
So I couldn't trust that they has his best interest at heart because of it.
I haven't needed a vet thankfully since them but when I do I will be looking for one that doesn't sell anything.

|Sookie||Do you think you could return it or get a credit or something if it doesn't solve the problem? My vet pushes science diet too, but it has never helped my pets (not to be discouraging); I am getting a bit sick of vets overcharging for food and medicines/ointments/etc. that are cheaper at the pet store. After being charged £12 ($19) for a tube of cream I saw at the pet store for under £5 (it was meant to soothe a tiny red patch on Sookie's foot that was gone the next day) I no longer buy anything that isn't prescription from the vet.|

Ugh, what was I thinking?
Ranger has had diarrhea off and on for over a month. The past week it has been nothing but diarrhea. He has been going to the vet and when I took him today the vet put him on science diet prescription ID. He wants me to feed him nothing else for 2 weeks. Okay, I am game for that, but for some reason he plopped a 35 lb. bag on the counter as I was checking out and like an idiot I bought it. That is like 2 months worth of crappy food. And it is so expensive to boot. Oh well, it is only money right? Now I hope it agrees with him or it may be a complete waste.
