Default kirkland dog food

So I hear about this Kirkland dog food a few times on here, I am just wondering how good of a dog food it was??

My boss use to feed her lab that, but it made her gain sooo much weight!!..She was over 100 lbs at one point!!

I've been unable to find the ingredients so I don't know how it is. the thing with a new food causing weight gain is that it can happen with any food but it's up to the owner to say "hey she's putting on some weight, she must not need as much of this new food as I'm giving her!". Many dogs will need less of a higher quality food, so if the dog was switched from something nasty like Purina or pedigree less food should have been needed for sure!

I'm currently feeding this until I can get back to level with finances and switch back to Innova. I've been fairly pleased with it...it's essentially Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul (Diamond) re-packaged under Costco's Kirkland label.

If the dog was gaining a bunch of weight on it, then I fault the owner for not adjusting the amounts accordingly. Every dog is going to take a different amount depending on it's metabolism and activity levels.

I feed it and it makes me happy. It's not as good a food as some but it's a nice simple food. My dogs do well on it and it's good for my budget. And steve likes that lol

I have fed it for years, and my dogs do GREAT on it. I have tried other foods in the past, but always come back to the Kirkland. I feed the Chicken, my dogs did not care for the lamb at all. It has no corn or fillers, and chicken and chicken meal, so it is great.

i searched on a thread and some one said that Kirkland dog food was the same as diamond naturals lamb and rice, but it depends on what formula of kirklands you get.

Here is the latest ingredient list I have. I believe it has not changed since I took this picture of my bag.


This is Chicken & Rice.

About how much is it for a 40lb (or whatever size) bag, guys? I'm going to feed Waylon that if my application is approved... and I want to know how much I'd pay for that vs, say Canidae. And I have no idea what either of them cost, except that they're cheaper... and my parents aren't very excited at feeding a 100+ lb dog, so I'm the one paying, and I have limited resources.

I'm paying about $22, incl. tax. Considering Innova just went up to $48(?) here...it makes a HUGE difference...

We're feeding Kirkland chicken and rice, at $22 for 40 lbs. I think we were paying $40-45 for 40 lbs of Canidae.

He seems to do really well on it. We supplement with random little things, like meat scraps and a few raw meals a week too.
