Default Science Diet.

Any thoughts on it? Anybody else feed it? We used to feed Kirkland, but ever since we moved they have been on Science Diet.

The kibbles are really big. My dogs are on it now, and two cups a day does it because they kibble is so large in size.
You never know how strong you are until strength is the only option you have left.

To be completely honest, I personally don't care for it at all... especially for the price. I'd never feed it to any of my dogs, unless I absolutely had to for some reason. That being said, I am a firm believer in feeding whatever your dog does best on and is readily available in your area. However, surely there are other foods where you're living that might be a bit of a step up?

I wouldn't feed it either, I've looked at the ingrediants on it and it seems like its pretty much just supermarket kibble with a price hike.

Science Diet is one of the foods I hate the most. I did some research on it for my mom because she feeds it and I was sickened by some of the ingredients in it.
Joey- Ibizan Hound
Cricket- Mexican Street dog (we think Xolo mix)
Bamm- BC mix
Itztli- Standard size coated Xoloitzcuintli

I've fed it long ago.... it's overpriced, it is not a high quality kibble at all. My dogs did alright on it at the time, I thought, but after research I couldn't feed it anymore. There's a lot of kibbles that are priced about the same but are much better imo.

I'd probably recommend looking around and seeing what's in your area that the dogs do well on. Look up ingredients as well and see that it's something you personally feel comfortable feeding.

i'm not fond of any pet food formula with a) corn b) by-products and c) preserved with BHA and BHT (at least they used to be), which can cause cancer.

for the money, i'd rather buy something good.

It is really not good kibble for any dog. Vets get a kick back from having Vet Approved on the front of it for sales.

Compare your ingredients, Innova, Solid Gold, Roayal Canine, some of the better ones.
