Default Can anyone suggest a cheap premium dog food?

Any cheap premium dog foods? Yes, the dogs are Pedigree, yuck! They look like mangy dogs who look like zombies. I am calmy trying to convince them still. That we will be feeding less on a higher quality food. Anywho, Maybe Taste of the Wild, but then it says your dogs poop a lot, and get the runs after a while. I don't know! And you guys know how Labs are. Eating machines. Thanks for all of your help Chazzers in advanced!

Healthwise might be a good option for you. It's made by natura (who makes Innova) but it's their "economy" version. Not as great as Innova, but still a quality food, at a fraction of the price.

IME it varies depending on where you are. Canidae is the cheapest here but it's not as cheap for other people. You might want to call a few stores and price-check to find out what will be cheapest for you!

California Natural isn't too bad. It's one of the most inexpensive I can find here, anyway. Then there's always Kirkland Signature if you have a Costco near you. It's not premium, but loads better than Pedigree. Winston's on Kirkland and doing well. His coat has deteriorated a bit, but otherwise, he's doing better on it than he has anything else aside from the old Canidae.

I've got my dogs on Kirkland and they do pretty well on it. It's $22 for a 40lb bag from Costco...it's Diamond Naturals under the private Kirkland label, so if you can find a store selling Diamond Naturals, it's about the same thing for the same price from what I hear.

Kirkland from Costco. And here, it is cheaper than the Diamond Natural. Of course, you have to be a member. Good luck.

My dogs have been on TOTW for a while and they have never had diarrhea. We started feeding it in January, I think...so almost a year

Is NutriSource a good one? It is cheaper than the Taste of the wild.

Nutrisource is just fine - and it's a lot better than Pedigree.
