PMI Red Flannel dog food

PMI Red Flannel dog food

Postby Big Dave » Thu Mar 13, 2008 9:07 pm

My local feed store has quit carrying Black Gold and seems to be going to PMI Red Flannel as their only line of dog food. I know Purina Mills is an old company but I have limited experience with them. They are carrying the complete PMI line. Orsheln's is the only other feed store in town and they want $18.49 for 40lbs. of Diamond green. I don't want to travel out of town due to time and fuel cost. I am not wanting another dog food war type thread, just need some experiences with PMI shared by others. Thanks.

I haven't tried the Red Flannel, but I do use the PMI Exclusive. I've fed 3 GSP's with either the chicken/rice or lamb/rice formulas and they have all done very well on it.

I use this too. The feed store had a chart to show which red flannel to use in its place. You may have to ask for it tho. High protein gets runnys so I use the exclusive.

The "Prime" formula most interest me. 26-18, chicken protein, omega 6&3 and glucosamine. They are not yet carrying the Exclusive.

I changed a couple of months ago from the 26/18 black gold (blck bag) to the 26/18 red flannel and had really good results. The red flannels main ingredient is chicken so I believe the stool is a little better. The only problem with the red flannel is the price jumped from $19 a bag to $24 recently.

Is this red flannel suppose to be the same quality as purinas pro plan? Do they make it to compete with Diamond,Country Vet, and Blackgold? I guess I have not seen this in my area and would like to check it out. anymore info would be great. The buy 6 get 1 free sound like a good deal. I know that Country Vet offers a buy 10 get 1 free deal. Any other kennel programs out there?

Phillips,
The people at the feed store tell me that PMI Exclusive is supposed to compete with Purina Pro Plan and that the PMI Red Flannel is supposed to compete with Diamond and Black Gold. I know that Country Vet is just getting started in my area and one local kennel is feeding it now.

Big Dave, I have switched my dogs to CV from Diamond and like the results, they also have a breeder program, Buy 10 get 1 free. I have them on the premium active adult 26/18 and my test and trial dogs/guiding dogs the dog fuel 32/20 when they are getting worked hard. Plain and simple I like it. :)

My dealer just raised the price of Exclusive to $29 for a 35# bag. It used to be around $25. I have to get another bag tomorrow and that will be my 6th bag and I'll get a free one too.

PMI Red Flannel 26-18 is forty eight cents a pound, Country Vet 26-18 is 46 cents and Diamond is 46 cents. The last Black Gold 26-18 that I bought was 42 cents and that was a couple of months ago. I may try the PMI with the buy 6 bags get a bag and the fact that I buy other things at the store that carries it.
Thanks for the input.
