Anyone Feed Purina One?

Hey I wanted some input on budget foods that are still good to feed. At the moment I cannot afford high end foods like Call of the Wild, Blue Buffalo etc.

Chicken is the first ingredient then brewers rice. Anyone have experiences with it. The vet says Purina is good and Yukon does fine on it. He is 6 months old so I feed him the Large Breed Puppy Purina One.

Any recommendations for quality food that is in that price range?

Not sure if you have a Costco in your area but the Kirkland brand Lamb and Rice is a very good food. As are the Nature's Domain products as well. Both are reasonably priced.

I do have a Costco! :-) I'll try it. Should I be keeping him on a puppy food though for a while? I guess I should have made that more clear, I would like to stay with puppy food for a while.

I switch my dogs to adult food at 4-5 months old. By 6 months old their growth is slowing down. If you switch him to an all life stages food he would be fine. Is there a reason you want him on a puppy food? They are usually the same as adult food except with more fat and calories.

I feed Purina One Pro Plan Sensitive formula and Flora does very well on it. Purina One is a perfectly good food to feed, although honestly PPP Sensitive isn't really what I'd consider a budget food... I still end up paying about $45 for a 33lb bag, which I suppose is fairly cheap compared to other foods.

I also hear Kirkland food has worked well for dogs. Eukanuba might be an option to look into as well.

I meant Taste of the Wild. LOL I was thinking the movie maybe. Then maybe I'll stick with Purina if you guys think its good quality. I thought so was based on the ingredients anyways...Eukanuba? Isn't it a bit more? Maybe not...

So you y'all really think he'd be fine on adult food? I though large breed puppy helped with joint and bone formation not just fat count. He is 6 months and a week or so.
