We use Enhance Hunters Edge for a maintanence feed it is a 24 - 18 then the enhance performance when we are using them alot more for the extra fat and protein it is a 30-22 I have found my dogs do do very well on both...and because the base is teh same we can go up and down the sclae as needed with out having to worry about upseting the stomaches
they also have a VF formula which i use the puppy food to start then go to the enhance puppy when they become alot more active have been very pleased with this food...we feed a kennel full and the price is reasonable and the ingredients are digested well by all the dogs....
We have tried plenty of feed one of the worst when it came to kennel clean up was pedigree and the other was beef n more
will not use cheap stuff
but some of your supposed high quality dog foods are pretty high grain based foods also....they trick you a bit with micro ingrdients making you think your feeding different but that is advertising and marketing
I like the bags that make you think your getting real meat and no by products then put lower on the list animal digest and cartiledge and say these are natural sources of glucosamine...why not just call it for what it is "by product" yes they have been proven a trace source of glucosamine and also good source of protien ...But that is marketing for you deciets and twisted truths
I mean what kind of company sould come out with a dog foos that makes the bag look like something a human would love to eat ears of corn chunks of meat peas and carrots...then read teh label is is chicken by products with LOTS of CORN Sweetners and SUGAR and sucrose....even the comapny reps call that Purina Beneful " Crack for Dogs"
