I feed Kirkland... which from my understanding is Diamond Naturals.... basically.... River does really well on it. Shye however does better if I put a bit of TOTW in. I'd feed TOTW straight but... with my zoo, that'd reduce me to subsisting fully on top ramen myself. I mix... for both my cats and dogs... they all do well.

Both are good foods.

Smile grain-free

I have decided to feed TOTW to the puppy, and my two other dogs. Thanks to everyone who posted a reply.

It is about 10 more than healtwise, but it is still 20 less than EVO. I would much rather play it safe, and stay with a grain free kibble :-)

Sounds like a good compromise! Let us know how it goes!

I'm also on TOTW. It's been working well for my dog. Their protein levels vary for each formula. Pacific Stream has the lower protein level at 25%, but the other two formulas are about 32% which is a little higher than most foods I've seen.

Smile update

Hello,

Here is the update:

I wrote to TOTW, and this is what they said:

"We recommend that large breed puppies be fed the Pacific Stream formula,
because it has the lower protein and fat levels. Rapid growth streaks
should be prevented in large breed puppies, for future bone/joint
health."


They also sent me some samples. I have tried it with my two other dogs, and they have done well on it.

The puppy is currently on EVO (she has sort of loose stool), but I plan on switching her as soon as we only have a small amount of EVO left. I am getting TOTW today to have it ready.

I will post later on how my puppy does on TOTW.

Thanks everyone!
