How is the food quality compared to Taste of the Wild-Salmon?
You ask 10 people, you may get 10 opinions.....
I'm personally not a grain free feeder--but I will say, I think TOTW is a decent one, especially for the price. However, I am not completely comfortable with Diamond because of their manufacturing issues and recalls earlier this year. However, a lot have continued on with it--and have no complaints.
At the same time, a lot of people do not like Purina--and then you have some that have only fed Purina for 20+ years.
I have fed a lot of foods over the years to my dogs (as well as rescues I've taken in, etc) and in the last 2 years, really struggled to find a food that my golden did well on. Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach has been a God-send to him and while I have tried a couple others in the process, I keep going back to it.
My ideas on dog food have changed pretty drastically over the last few years. And now, My opinion is--whatever works for YOUR DOG (whether it's TOTW, Pro Plan, Raw or Iams, for examples), is what is best for YOUR dog. Find one that is easy to get, easily afforded by your budget and that your dog does well on and just feed him and love him.
I used to drive myself nuts about dog food (not saying you are, just sharing my experience) and I'm so glad I finally figured out that feeding what is best for my dogs (not best for ME) is the way to go.
As far as Petsmart goes--I like Pro Plan and Eukanuba personally. The thing about them is they are readily available, affordable and have been around for years and are 'tried and true'.
I've heard some good things about Simply Nourish on a lab board, but have not tried that one, personally--though my dogs do LOVE their canned food.
