From what I have read, this doesn't look like it's the best or worst food to be feeding him? Anyone have any insight? Not to mention it's really expensive. It runs about 35 bucks for a 40 pound bag.

you've got to be kidding me..... I pat $21 for a 40lb bag lol....

incidently yes I think it's a nice middle of the road food... not horrible... not great.... my lab mix does great on it, and it doesn't aggrivate my old dog's stomach so we will stick with it

We feed all our dogs Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice. They do wonderful on it!

There are better quality food out there than Diamond Naturals but, it is better than grocery brand dog foods.

We get a 40 lb bag for around $30.00 at Tractor Supply.

I feed Diamond Premium Adult.
It has more protein, which I think is good for Dozer since he's so active!

IMO there have been to many problems with the food, recalls as close as May 2009. I wouldnt risk it.
I think there are better foods out there for that price, including the diamonds Natural

I would feed the Naturals or Kirkland before I would feed Nutro. Nutro is overpriced and low quality. I occasionally mix it in (since I get these kennel packs donated) if I need to make a bag of food last a little longer, but would not purchase it for my dogs.

I have fed, and do occasionally feed Naturals. I have to go out of the area to get anything higher quality so if I run out before we are going to Durango I'll feed a bag Diamond Naturals. I prefer the Lamb&Rice formula as the Chicken formula seems to cause some awful gas. Locally I pay $35 for 40lbs, out of the area the cost is $30/40lbs.

I have fed Bronx the Kirkland brand before and he does well on it. I was told they have basically the same ingrediaents although I have never actually compared them myself. I would love to stich to Kirkland (Quality/Price) but do not have a Costco card and can only get to Costco when my roomate goes and with me traveling the last couple months its hard to find time. Thank to all for the input
