Kirkland super premium puppy food

Does anyone use Kirkland dog food from costco ? I'm paying $20 for 6 pounds of Royal Canin Large puppy breed food. I researched the kirkland brand dog food and seemed to have good reviews. Plus its $10 for a 20 pound bag which is a nice plus as long as the food is decent for my puppy. My puppy is 12 weeks old tomorrow. Also is it at the 1 year mark that I should switch him to adult food ? I make him scrambled eggs with carrots once in a while to. Any other recomendations on things I can make that are healthy for Jake once in a while ? Any comments about this food and how different is the quality from the royal canin brand I was feeding my puppy before ?

Also how much of this new puppy food should Jake be feed every day ?

I use Kirkland Chicken and Rice for my adult dogs with much success. Nice coats and clean ears. in fact Jules has had ear issues from birth and they look better than ever now.

The ingredients list looks pretty darn good.

I normally switch my puppy fosters over to adult food around the 5 month old mark.

I've heard that this is a great food, my vet seems to approve when people say that they're on Kirkland's brand, too. Too bad we have a Sam's Club membership- not Costco!!

Maevis' breeder uses Kirkland for all of her dogs. When we brought her home, we planned to gradually switch her to another food. She did so well on the food, however, that we saw no reason to switch her--if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? Maevis has now switched to Costco adult, which she did at 6 mo. old, and continues to thrive. In fact, we bought a Costco membership, and drive 45 min. each way, solely so we can buy the Kirkland food (which effectively negates the cost benefit, but we are really very happy with the food, so it's worth it).

Our breeder swears by the Kirkland for all of her dogs, And she has some beautiful dogs. We are currently using it for our younger pup, but will be switching to Pro-Plan soon so that both dogs are on the same brand.

Stick to organic dog food. There are plenty of brands available. Please see list below for suggestions.

1.) Karma
2.) Castor & Pollux Organix
3.) Natural Balance Organic
4.) Humane Choice Organic
5.) Newman's Own Organics
6.) Blue Organics
7.) Nature Organics
8.) Verve Dehydrated Raw Dog Food
9.) PetGuard Organics
10.) Taste of the Wild Wetlands

Organic = Healthy

Link suggestions:

Organic crops must be produced without pesticides (including herbicides), synthetic fertilizers, sewer sludge, bioengineering, or radiation. Organically raised animals must be given organic food and be free of growth hormones and antibiotics. Organic farm animals must have access to the outdoors, including pastureland for grazing.

If a food has a "USDA organic" label on it, it contains at least 95% organic ingredients. A government-approved expert must inspect the farm where it is produced to make sure the farmer follows all USDA requirements.

Sorry, we can't all afford to feed our dogs organic. Seems you no longer can either.

Anyway, Kirkland food is a very good kibble! My neighbors feed their three mix breeds Kirkland.

Your list is not accurate.
