Default Will You Switch Dog Food?

In light of the changes in Canidae and the rising cost of some of the foods on the market, will you switch? If higher prices are an issue, what would you switch to?

I'm switching cat food because I feed felidae (cat version of canidae). My new food is more expensive ( like $6 more) but since my dad pays for the dry I'm just going to pay the difference. I switched to Before grain (by Merrick) which is a plus since it's grain free.

Stickin' with EVO RM . . . been with it since it first came out, the regular EVO before that, and Innova before that.

Saga WAS on Canidae, because she was horribly gassy on the regular Innova, just turns out she a gassy anyways, so we have switched back to Innova. I am always on the quest for new kibble though.

Hillside, try her on the EVO RM. You might see (smell?) a difference once her carbs are lowered.

I might switch Bailey's (well, keep it switched) but I can't with Buzz. Tried that and ended up with a super itchy, pathetic dog. He stays on Fromm Salmon. I might try Innova again with Bailey.

Right now she's eating NV Lamb.

I went to raw when feeding raw was more expensive than doing any good kibble on the market.. Now - its the reverse- doing raw is cheaper but that is now why I have continued. I do raw because I know the quality and what my dogs are eating.. Take planning - yes- is it worth it- yes- is it easy- yes- matter of habit..
When I started raw in 1984 we were the crazy people. And only a few of mine were eating raw- .. then the ethoxyquin hit the foods and all heck broke loose. I went to raw and never looked back. It wasnt just my dogs effected- it was also my daughter..
