I didn't make it to Big R this weekend but was in Carson today so I stopped once again at petsmart. I looked at several bags in my price range and came up with Natures Recipie.

Chicken meal, ground rice, pearled barley, poultry fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), natural flavor, tomato pomace, salt, potassium chloride, vitamins (vitamin E supplement, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), inositol, niacin supplement, vitamin A supplement, d-calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, beta carotene, riboflavin supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, menadione sodium bisulfite complex, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12 supplement), minerals (zinc proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc oxide, iron proteinate, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, copper sulfate, copper proteinate, calcium iodate, sodium selenite), yeast culture, choline chloride, yucca schidigera extract, rosemary extract, citric acid (used as a preservative).

Hope Buddy likes it and it doesn't give him an upset tummy switching. I've only got a little bit of the old stuff left to mix it with.

Sorry I didn't update sooner, but had a close family friend pass away and haven't had time. The switch to Natures Recipie went well. Buddy seems to like it and his coat looks much nicer. Since it is a food for all ages of dogs, I went ahead and switched the puppy when RC changed their formula and raised their prices. It was a more sudden switch than I would have liked but it went well. No runny poo. Ivan looks good and seems happy with it. I notice they have a grain free easy to digest formula as well that I might try in the future just to switch it up a bit but so far I'm very pleased. It is a decent price and seems to have better ingredients than the Science Diet.
