They have a variety of formulas, which is nice since you can rotate them. They also have a grain free kibble as well

Well I think I may try that one for now. I will have to go find the store here this weekend. I guess it must be a small pet store or something, but I dont think it is too far from my house! Yay! lol

When you rotate the formulas do you have to do that gradually also or does it matter if you just start feeding them the same brand but say I switched from lamb to beef or chicken?

I just found there are also places here that sell Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul foods sold in a few places here. Would that or the Nature's Variety be better? Also should we keep Justin's huskies on large breed formulas?

Chicken Soup Adult formula ingredient:
Chicken, turkey, chicken meal, ocean fish meal, cracked pearled barley, whole grain brown rice, oatmeal, millet, white rice, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), potatoes, egg product, tomato pomace, duck, salmon, flaxseed, natural chicken flavor, choline chloride, dried chicory root, kelp, carrots, peas, apples, tomatoes, blueberries, spinach, dried skim milk, cranberry powder, rosemary extract, parsley flake, yucca schidigera extract, L-carnitine, Enterococcus faecieum, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Saccharomyces cerevesiae fermentation solubles, dried Aspergillus oryzae fermentation extract, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin, vitamin D supplement, folic acid.

I like Nature's Variety better than Chicken Soup.

When I rotate formulas, I usually take between 5-7 days to do so. I just start gradually switching when the bag runs low

I feed my dogs Canidae on a rotating schedule. One month All Life Stages, one month Lamb & Rice, one month Chicken & Rice.

I chose Canidae because of the fact that it is corn, wheat, and soybean free. Pepe has major issues with corn, and Flicka doesn't do soybean well.

The first five ingredients are (in All Life Stages): Chicken Meal, Turkey Meal, Brown Rice, White Rice, Lamb Meal

I feed on a rotating because it gives them a little variety, and it also provides additional nutrients.

PS: Queen Lillian would also like to add that she gets Felidae. And that she wouldn't eat anything less then that.
