Anybody feed their dog Nutro Natural Choice? If so how does it work out for you? I've been feeding a lower end food and my dogs coats just don't look as shiney as I think they should, I think it's time to start feeding a more premium food.

Thanks

I tried Nutro and NutriSource but far and wide the best food (which I use now) is Candaie (sp). I think it was Labs4me who first tried it on this forum and also was happy with it.

I used Nutro before. It is a good food. I switched both of my dogs to Pro Plan. They do really well on it.

It all depends on the dog and how they digest certain blends. My blacks coat just shines with the Pro Plan Beef and Rice Formula.

Good Luck!

Canidae, I think it was Labs4me....who was happy with it.

Teal (and Labs4me), were you aware of and have you gotten any bags of the new ALS formula? Just curious if it affected your dogs at all. It's probably just hitting stores. Been some reports of loose stools.....but it may all be internet hype. I'm not using this food at the moment because of allergies (tried it last summer)...but just curious. New pup coming soon........

to the original post: As mentioned "It all depends on the dog". Just because someone dog does good on one food does not mean your will. Your best bet is to do some research and choose a quality premium food....and then try it and see how YOUR dog does. Not all foods are created equal. You could also do a search here for food and look at all the past posts. There have been many.

I just switched from Nutro to Nutri-source. I have two german shorthairs and Nutro did not mix well with them. Nutri-source is doing much better. Plus it is made in Perham, MN.

My Labs are two weeks into the new ALS formula. Their stool was a little loose the first three days. All is back to normal smile.

311,

I feed the PAWS formula. (puppies - adult - working - senior) Figure that pretty much covers the bases! I've been happy with the food... anybody else notice how dog food is skyrocketing faster than human food? YUK! But it does take your mind off gas prices for a minute... hehehe

Good Luck!

Ken

Ken, that's the one I was referring to that has been reformulated.

I certainly noticed the price now.....and will especially notice it in 1 month when the new pup arrives! shocked

I fed Nutro until they had ingredient supply issues about four months ago. I then switched to Nutri and haven't found a need to switch back. With both companies I fed/feed large breed lamb and rice. Both are good products and I'd reccommend either.

I have not noticed any loose stool with Candaie - I will keep a look out... smile

I have noticed she is shedding more these past couple weeks - figured it was just the heat

I tried Nutrisource then to Performance edge and have now settled on Chicken Soup for the Large Breed Dog Lovers Soul. I know your thinking, "huh?" THe ingredients in this food are great and my lab now goes twice a day and its solid as a brick. Her coat is excellent and she is full of energy. Its not that easy to find around here so I stock up on it when I can find it.

First few ingredients are chicken, turkey, chicken meal, barley, whole grain rice, oatmeal, ocean fish meal.

Broken record response to food. If you have a Sam's Club membership, invest the $22 into a bag of Exceed and see how pooch fares. Been using it for coming up on 15 years. Probably wouldn't keep up the membership if not for that dog food.

    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
