Plus, Iams/Eukanuba operates one of the cruelest programs of animal testing in the industry. When you buy Iams, not only are you paying an premium price for non-premium food, it's going back into the pockets of those who practice animal cruelty.

Most foods you can find at PetSmart and Petco aren't that great, with the acception of Natural Balance and Royal Canin, though those aren't the best either.

Oh, I didn't know that. My mom just bought this brand because the price was high, so she thought it would be healthy for our pup. As for the testing on animals, I'm not going to support them by buying their food.. but now that my pup is eating this, how do I get him to switch foods at such a young age ?

First mix 10% new food in with 90% old food. The next day, feed 20% new, 80% old. Third day, 70% old food, 30% new. Keep going down like that until he's on the new food.

The best way to find if a food is high-quality is check the ingredients. There should be (preferably) no by-products, no corn, the first ingredient should be meat, and organic ingredients are a +.

Nutro is another one of those brands that charges like it's a premium dog food made from good ingredients - but it isn't. You pay a premium price for well packaged garbage.
