I have been feeding my Golden (Mia 6 years old) Arcana Pacifica.
and she has been doing well on it.
The 13 kg bag has now gone up to 73.99 Euros.
Prior to Arcana I was using Orijen but my online source in Spain is no longer supplying Orijen.
I find 74 Euros is very expensive. The price has been going up nearly every time a make a new purchase.
One of the brands my supplier has is Taste of the Wild which is a lot less expensive 55.90 Euros.
They make a fish based kibble but if I remember correctly there has been some negative feed back for Taste of the Wild.
I am limited because here in Spain you can not get all the brands.
Shall I switch to Taste of the Wild or bite the bullet and pay the increase
Hope to hear your comments.
Cheers
Mia's Mate.

Im aware of the issues with TOTW but both of my hooligans do well on several different varieties of it. I stick with it as of now. There are recalls all over the place with dog food so....
Ultimately, its a personal decision..can you afford it or not.

Because I was running out of food I did order the expensive Arcana again.
But next time I am going to try TOTW and see how Mia does with it.
The difference in price (74.00 vs.56.00 Euros) in a year does add up.
Many thanks for your quick reply.
It is great having the forum to go to with queries and help with indecisions.
Thanks again
Mia's Mate.

Thanks for replying .
Just looked at my suppliers list and
Farmina N&D GF is not on it.
But I will pursue this and try to find
another source. Many thanks for your suggestion.
Cheers,

If you decide to order TOTW remember to order it a little early so that you can gradually introduce it with her old food. I have used TOTW and found it to be good. We didnt have any issues with it. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. We may be heading for Spain in the summer, I have just been ploughing through hours and hours of villas,..I will look out for you and Mia! ;)

I have used TOTW on a previous rescue Golden that had severe allergies. We used the Salmon and Sweet potato and her skin did very well. She liked the food too!
We have a new Golden puppy who is eating Nutro Ultra Large Breed puppy, but we may switch to the TOTW at some point later.
