Wow, that's awesome. All 3 of our dogs HATED the Annamaet lean. I was disappointed considering I bought a 15lb bag. We basically forced them to eat half of it, but the rest ended up getting trashed.

It's a great brand and a great food. Hopefully it works well.

It comes in under 400kcal/cup and I've recommended it with great success.
It's still not in the US anywhere. I wanted to feed it to my dads overweight dogs, really sucks.

Yeah I'm forcing them to finish the Fromm. We mixed part of it with the Wellness which they ate OK but not great. Now they're eating the annamaet and picking out/spitting out the Fromm. I may just have to chunk the rest of this bag.

I wish I didn't have to order the annamaet online but... We'll see how they do on it.

Now Senior isn't too bad. I believe it's only 24% protein, which is a little lower than I like, but the quality is nice and the fat % and kcals should be low.

I think 4Health has a reduced calorie food, though I can't guarantee it.

ETA: And I just now realized this thread is 6 weeks old and 3 pages long lol. Hope the new food works for the girls!

New ideas are good though! We're still playing around with things. Right now I'm trying to decide if Mia's bout of illness is related to this new bag of food or not...

So we may need another option.

If they don't eat the one brand of food, try contacting the manufacturer. So far when I've tried different brands and the dogs don't like it, I've called or emailed the company and they've sent me a refund. It's worth a try.
