Good God, it appears that just about everybody uses Diamond plants.

I've seen on some boards that people are changing to Earthborn Holistic.
Nutrisource is also a good alternative to TOTW.
They have very similar formulas, similar protein/calorie levels and close in price (maybe a buck or 2 more).
It's also a small, family owned company that has never had a recall.

The feed store I buy my dog food from started stocking both Earthborn and Nutrisource as replacements for TOTW.

Looks like Nutrisource is not grain free and only has chicken and lamb choices? Or am I not finding what I'm looking for?

Can you supply a link and/or ingredients java?

Yeah I don't really care... may possibly be contaminated with salmonella, which I probably come into contact with regularly anyways? I'm just not concerned.

Here is the link to their website:

http://www.nutrisourcedogfood.com/nu...cts/gf_seafood

Nutrisource has grain free as well as grain inclusive formulas.
Look under Products.
All the info you need is there-protein levels, ingredients, formulas, etc.

PureVita (made by NutriSource) has three grain-free formulas (bison, salmon, turkey), and three grain-inclusive formulas (chicken, duck, salmon) as well. I personally like PureVita a little better than NutriSource, going by ingredient lists.

My manager has been sick, throwing up and crampy, for a few days now. She had a recalled bag of ToTW. I don't know, could definitely be coincidence..but it's kind of scary.

We just got Earthborn in and will be getting Nutrisource next week, as well as Fromm classic for the Canidae and Premium edge feeders.

I picked up a bag of the Bison formula and the seafood formula.
I'm feeding the seafood formula right now....so far so good.
I'll rotate in the Bison formula next.
