Unsure what to do

Post by Ranger351 » Fri Oct 21, 2011 7:52 am

Been feeding diamond ea and really like it but the chain of stores (pet club) that carry it near me seem to be very unreliable on stocking it. Asked about it at several locations and get told we either have it or we dont. I'm considering switching foods so I can just buy elsewhere with reliability.

I think our local Tractor Supply sells it. Do you have those out there?

That is not unsual at conventional pet stores because not many people uses the performance blends. I guess you just have to stay on top of ordering, or switch. Does that store carry Earthborn Primitive? Per lb it is not much more than EA.

I started using this with my hard keeper GSP about 9 months ago. I am very happy with this food. He looks great and I do not have to feed much to maintain his weight. He ranges from 62-64# and eats between 2-3 cups/day.

I bought it last at doggiefood.com for 39.99/bag, free shipping and no tax. Very happy with this product.

Funny how that works, we had the whole kennel on Loyall and swithed to diamond with much better results :? :)

I am guessing you've already used the website dealer locator Ranger, there are about 20 dealers in Mesa.....

Feed stores around me handle Diamond. Tractor Supply also. If you have feed mills around you try them

Not real easy to find all the Diamond products on the West Coast yet. Looks like more people are starting to realize it's a good product for a good price.

Which Loyall were you feeding and for how long? Also, which diamond did you switch to?

I can't find the performance locally, but I switched to their active and really like it, dogs look better, seem to crap less.

As far as buying feed, I've always had better luck with service and stock at locally owned places.
I have English Pointers because they don't ever grow up either...
