WCF, if you were to compare Annamaet Option to Dr Tim's Kinesis, which would be the "better" food? Also as a fyi, Chewy's site has the best "deal" by a few cents per pound on the 30 lb.er at $1.40 lb. Also out of curiosity, why do different sites have different bag size and advertisement for Dr Tim's? The same two question applies to cat food? Thanks and I apologize for diverting the original question.
If you can get free shipping on the 30lb bags then Mr. Chewy is a bit cheaper. Last time I checked the 44lb bags of on Petflow were less. Mr. Chewy was much more than Petflow a few months back.
Petflow and some others still have the old graphics on their websites and Petflow offers every bag size, some like the 44lbs are "breeder" bags, all white bags with a sticker on them. Those are the bags I get by the pallet.
Mr. Chewy only sells the new style bags, the fancy printed bags.
Annamaet Option is a really good food and so is Kinesis. Kinesis would hold up better with more active dogs and is technically a better food because of the some of the supporting ingredients like porcine plasma, psyllium & beet pulp, the vitamin mix, etc.
Kinesis is a more modern food. Option came out originally as a allergy food.
If you had a wide age range of dogs from young to old, then Kinesis would be better. If you had a bunch of special cases that needed fewer proteins and lower fat then Option would be better.
Overall Kinesis is more flexible and I would use that personally. Kinesis for a 26% protein is about the best you will find.
