Skittledoo--how is this food working for you? I am in the process of trying to find something new, since TOTW is under recall. My guys have done so well on it, particularly the waterfowl formula. So I am looking for something similar--this might be an option. What do you think of it?

So far the dogs are doing fabulous on it. Cricket doesn't have the fish breath she had on Surf and Turf and actually Bamm is doing better on it than any kibble diet he has been on. He has IBS so transitioning him to a different food worried me, but we have absolutely NO issues whatsoever. I love it!

thanks--it looks a bit more expensive than I want--I will have to see what our local pet store sells it for. Good to know you are liking it--I hate trying to switch foods when they have done so well on TOTW.

Ya it definitely isn't cheap. If I wasn't getting it at wholesale cost through my work there is no way I would be able to afford to feed it. I'm hoping that by the time I leave my job one day that I will be in a position to feed raw again.

Most places here retail the 25lb Fromm GF bags for around $85 - $90. Ours all retail at $87.99 and wholesale cost is around $48. According to a few customers, our price is slightly more favourable compared to a competing pet store down the road (Critter Jungle), but I haven't checked that yet.

So many of our customer dogs and cats are on Fromm. Gold, Four Star, Four Star GF... all do very well, and Fromm's been in business for forty years with no major issues. Proof is in the pudding!

Ours retail for around $60 for the grain-free, and $45-50 for the Four-Star.

Just because I'm curious...how much does the 29.7lb bag of Orijen Adult retail for there? Or Regional Red?

I do not know how Canadian money differs from American money, but that sounds like a lot of $$$!!

It's a lot compared to the states, yes. TOTW is like that too. It retails for $71.99 at my store, and again that's comparable/competitive to other stores locally.

Orijen Regional Red retails for $81.99 IIRC, and Adult retails for around $76.99.

Our exchange rates have been relatively par for almost a year. My guess is that part of it is due to importing the food, but I could be wrong.

Wow! Remind me never to move to Canada!

I'm sure its more expensive because it has to be imported and all that, but still. Yikes!

Holy Canadian sh!tcakes!! That is a lot of money. And your Orijen retails for about the same as ours even O.o

Bax, have you looked into Earthborn Holistic at all? They are going to have a grain free that is more comparable in price to the TOTW.
