Default Big suprise at the hardware store!

I went to the local hardware store to see if they had any welded D rings for collar making. They didnt have any in stock, but are more than happy to order them for me. the smallest size they have is 1 1/4 inch, but thats ok, I was originally looking for 1 inch, but i realized that the 1 1/4 ones would actually work better, i think.

Anyways, my big surprise... as I was walking towards the front of the store I saw it... a WHOLE ISLE FULL OF NUTRO DOG FOOD!

They have all kinds of different flavors and size bags.
A 20 pound bag is 28 dollars and some change. Is that a good price?

I got a small free sample bag. It's Lamb and something else... it's in a dark green bag.

So at 28 bucks, thats about 10 dollars more than what I pay for Canidae, and i wouldnt have to drive an hour to get it.

I was thinking maybe I could do a rotation between Nutro and Canidae.
I can get Taste Of the Wild, but I am thinking that would be a little too expensive for me, plus it's still an hour away.

What do you all think, should I add Nutro to the pooches diet? am I getting ripped off on the price, or does it seem about right?

You would be paying $10 more for a food of lesser quality. If it's convenient for you, go for it. However, the ingredients in Nutro are mediocre and it is very overpriced.

Nutro Lamb and Rice:
Lamb Meal, Ground Rice, Rice Flour, Rice Bran, Poultry Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Natural Flavors, Soybean Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Whole Brown Rice, Dried Egg Product, Dried Plain Beet Pulp, Potassium Chloride, L-Lysine, Dried Kelp, Choline Chloride, Zinc Sulfate, Vitamin E Supplement, Taurine, Ferrous Sulfate, Ascorbic Acid (source of Vitamin C), Biotin, Copper Proteinate, Niacin, Manganous Oxide, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement (source of Vitamin B2), Vitamin A Supplement, Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Chondroitin Sulfate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (source of Vitamin B6), Thiamine Mononitrate (source of Vitamin B1), Vitamin D3 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex (source of Vitamin K activity), Calcium Iodate, Folic Acid.

Nutro sounds a little bit like Natura, the company that makes Innova, EVO, and California Natural.
