My friend has 2 pitbulls and feeds them Nutri Source. Is this a good food? I was hoping to go just a bit cheaper than California Naturals, but still have a good food.

IMO it isn't a bad food but I find it overpriced for its quality. Around here it is over $50 for a 33lb bag. There are some really decent budget foods out there. I have to admit I was impressed with Wal-Marts Actr1um holistic food - for a grocery store food it does well against my criteria. Many people also like the Kirkland brand of dog food and I agree that for the money it isn't all that bad of a food.

California Naturals is IMO a very high quality food and you won't likely find something with the same ingredients for much cheaper. Best of luck! The food hunt can be so hard!

If you like California Natural, but want something a bit cheaper look at Healthwise. Made by the same company with the same limited ingredients. It does have a higher protein/fat content than CN, but that's the main reason I switched. It is a big cheaper than CN but still excellent quality.

Bock took the words right out of my mouth. My DD and her husband are very happy with feeding Natura's Healthwise ($36.50 for 35 lb. bag) to their two dogs. For the money, they feel their getting good ingredients manufactured by a respected company. Plus their dogs do well on it.
