Default Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Puppy

Hello, I'm a newbie with a 8 week old solid black german shephard "Dante". The breeder has him on Kirkland brand chicken and rice formula, and someone recommended the new Purina Pro Plan food. Does anyone know anything about it?

Don't use Pro Plan. There are much better foods out there to feed your pup. Many of us use Innova. My dogs are on Eagle Pak Holistic. To read a good site about which food are good quality go to this link that Renee always posts:

You do not want to feed your dog anything made by Purina. Nasty, toxic, unhealthy stuff.

I can't say enough good about the Innova (www.naturapet) and the other lines of food made by Natura Pet, and there are other good quality foods out there. The link Barb gave you is excellent, and Mordy's site, has excellent information as well.

lol I did that before and she corrected me. Maybe she doesn't want us on her personal page.

I agree with everyone else. I wouldn't feed my dog anything by purina. Innova, Eagle Pack, and similar brands are pretty good ones. Learn more about nutrition and dog food by reading through past threads. It's very interesting.

it's really not a problem to link to my main homepage, but some people might get confused and not immediately realize why exactly they arrived there.

as to the food question, if you are on a tight budget, the kirkland is your best bet. if money isn't as much of a concern, you can look into the better quality products like innova, canidae, eagle pack, natural balance etc.
