Question Which dog food to switch too?

Well I have been feeding Zoe Nutro Lamb & Rice small bites, as that is the best thing I can find in my area. But with them being affected by the dog food recall I would really like to switch. I have been wanting to for a while, but not sure where I am going to be able to get the food. I would really like to be able to buy it at a store, as I and especially Justin are not good at getting things done ahead of time and the dogs would probably be almost out of food, or in his case out of food before remembering to order more online.

Also Zoe is a 2 and 1/2 year old beagle and she is pretty active, and will be much more so during the summer. Will it matter which of the good brands I choose? I know the brands like eagle pack, canidae, etc are the good ones. I just want to know if one would be better for her specifically over another. She has not ever had any food allergies or anything.

Go to Mordy's site and do some reading on the foods. Good luck.

I order from Timberwolf organics and they ship for free I usually order a week and a half before his food starts to run low

I would start her out on Canidae and see how that does, just because it's such a good all-around food.

I'd recommend Canidae as well, its a good price and a pretty good food.

I feed Orijen and Timberwolf Organics to my dogs... they are the best foods that I've ever tried with my dogs.

Timberwolf Organics does ship, and when i order it I order 2-3 bags at a time (that way, I won't run out before I remember to reorder).

Well the closest place to buy canidae is about 100 miles away.

The Natural Balance site says I can find it at a store in my town, I just have to find the store.

The Nature's Variety site also has a place in my town where I can buy it.

Which kind of formula should I use. Right now I feed lamb and rice, but I see the other foods all have different formulas. Does it really matter which I choose?

We will also be switching Justin's 2 huskies over to brand I get. Is there formulas better for large breed?

The only problem I had with Natural Balance is that is dried out my dog's coat and gave him dandruff other than that is was really good for his poop and energy but since it is so low in protein it can dry out there coats.
