I'm a little bit worried because I noticed that the Sensitive Skin & Stomach formula is now labeled as "selects." I really hope that they're not changing the formula. We've been using the SSS for several years now with great results.

I'm with you. According to them, they are not changing it, but I'm a little skeptic. I'm also concerned about bag sizes and price....I saw on Petsmarts website their new Duck formula in the Selects is down to a 24 lb bag for the largest size and $44. I'm currently paying $44 for 33 lbs--24 lbs is a big difference. We've been using the PPSSS for a year and it's been the best food for keeping my boys issues at bay. Hopefully the worry is for nothing, but I completely understand your concern.

edited because I just went back and the ingredients look all wrong...hopefully it's a typo on the size as well...but I'm watching.

Glad I found this thread, but still can not figure out if ALS Chicken & Rice is now a "Focus" product. I called Purina this morning, and while the lady was very nice, she could not figure out which formula the ALS was switched to. I got off the phone with her, and had learned nothing

Finlay is running low on food, and I am going to Pet Smart after work to pick up more kibble. Hopefully someone at the store will be able to point me into the right direction. I do hope Pro Plan didn't change the formula. Finlay has done great on ALS, has been eating it since the breeder put him on solid food. Never had a tummy upset, and his coat is beautiful.

Have any of you picked up the new formula? If yes, what exactly is it called?

Thanks for your help!

I went to the store last week and they did not yet have the new formula in stock. I picked up another bag of ALS. I'm hoping the staff at the store will know what they're talking about when they actually start to stock the new formula.

I had to do my own research to find out what the Chicken and Rice ALS was changing to. The other night I sat down and looked at the ingredients and nutrient breakdown.

The Sport 26/16 ALS is what it is- the same food it looks like to me.

Thanks, Tina I was thinking the same thing, that hopefully the store employees will know which formula replaced the ALS. If I am successful, and find the replacement, I will post the information here.

Thanks Rainheart, that is interesting. My guess would have been that the "Sport" replaced the "Performance". Good idea on breaking down the nutrional values; that makes sense. I just wish that companies would not change things up

According to the chart posted earlier in this thread, it is now a "select" product.

SELECT™*ALL LIFE STAGES
Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Formula
PLUS ESSENTIAL VITAMINS AND MINERALS

I poked around the internet and looked at their chart. I believe they have not changed any formulas--they've just updated their packaging. It's just a marketing change.

Thanks OutWest I did pull up that chart, but what confused me (and I am very easily confused....lol) was the previous packaging for "Selects". I was not able to find the bag color that matched the ALS I used to buy. When I looked at the chart again, I noticed that on page two, 3rd from the bottom, it read "All Life Stages Chicken & Rice Formula", and the "Select" ALS next to it; that helped.

Thanks again!
