Charlie is a chocoalte lab and he is fed Nutro Max Beef Meal & Corn. He turned his nose up to the Lamb Meal & Rice unfortunately.

Nutro actually has 'corn' in one of their food name? Jeeze.

I agree with Renee. I used to feed nutro, and found out that switching to a better food is actually cheaper.

I already asked. Mordy reccomended the Natural Balance, since that's the best food available in my area.

That's too bad, Gempress. I just hate the way Nutro presents their food as something it's not . . . and charges that way too! Maybe one of your pet food stores will upgrade sometime in the near future. The Natural Balance, is, as I know Mordy's told you, the best of what Nutro manufactures.

I'm playing with the idea of figuring out how to set up a food co-op. The Agri-Feed and Pet Supply - our closest Innova distributor, is on the west side of Knoxville. One vet in our town buys it from them, but he's always out of the big bags. Evidently a lot of people with larger dogs are buying the EVO here, so it might be something that would work out.

Ripley (Papillon) and Dakota (BC) both eat Innova EVO, supplemented with raw meats, bones, organs and eggs.. Oh, and the occasional lizard.

Rene, Natural Balance isn't by Nutro. You might be thinking of Natural Choice. You're right. Nutro isn't the best IMO. Natural Balance is a very fine, premium food made by Dick Van Patten. You can look at the ingredients. Lyric eats that...venison and brown rice formula because he has a problem with a sensative stomach and that one seems to agree with him well. I did feed Canidae, but it has so many ingredients that it seemed to bother Lyric. But I feed that to my Chi's. It's a very good food.

Another good one beside Inova, which is a super food, IMO, is Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul. They have one for pups and seniors too...lots of good, yummy stuff.

These foods are cooked at a lower temp so the nutrients aren't all destroyed and they have good supplimentation, good meat, lots of it, human grade, no corn and no harmful chemicals or anesthesized animals. They are expensive, but less waste, so really they come out about the same. My dogs' coats and teeth are very nice and they're energetic. I think in Natural Balance and even some of the other ones is some Taurine....that's good for the heart, apparently.

Charlie is a beagle/collie/australian shepard and maybe something else, we don't know what.

He eats Natural Choice Lamb Meal and Rice. We want to switch him to Innova though, as soon as we can find out where we can get it.

I have a 8 year old female Saint Bernard/Labrador Retreiver mix named Pixie. And I have just switched her food from nasty Kibbles N Bits to the better quality Innova Large Breed and she loves it.
