Name Change: ProPlan All Life Stages Chicken and Rice

Please help!!! ProPlan re-named everything and I can't figure out which food is the old ProPlan All Life Stages Chicken and Rice (not shredded) formula.
I went to the website, and called ProPlan. Neither they nor I can figure out if the same formula still exists. She thought it might be called Sport 26/16.

His old formula was not a Performance. It was not Sensitive Skin and Stomach.

I see there is a Focus variety now that has the same dog pictured on the package as was on the ProPlan All Life Stages Chicken and Rice, but all the Focus types are shredded.

Who knows?

I feed Bertie focus puppy - and it's definitely not the shredded kind.

Is it under "Sport"?

I think it's the Sport ALS Active 26/16 Formula.

I did a quick look see on the website -

The "Savor" bags are the shredded formulas.
Focus = the regular formulas.
Select = the select formulas.

I was concerned when I brought Bertie home and made sure the formulas were the same, since Bertie's breeder was feeding a mixture of Select and Puppy and weaning onto puppy food. It's probably not a huge deal since I'll be weaning him onto the adult food (I'd like to feed the performance kibble but may instead go back to Selects) in 2 months.

Oh....I'm glad I saw this! I just bought a huge bag of ALS chicken and rice, so I didn't know it had changed. I'll have to remember to look for Focus when I go to order our next bag!

There is a 28/18 now slotted between the 26/16 and 30/20.

If it's their Chicken & Rice ALS formula you want, it's the Sport 26/16 you want, not the Focus (Focus formulas are geared for certain sizes, ages, etc).
