We've been getting it in Canada for some time now. Its kind of considered a replacement to Timberwolf where I live. TO wasn't too popular to begin with, but with the additional issues they were having and the lousy customer service, I'm not surprised anymore.

As for Taste of the Wild. I think its a decent food.

I'm not sure if anyone has heard, but there is a lot of debate about foods from the U.S. that may be using meat imported from China. There have been border issues with getting some of the kibble, especially that uses red meats, across the border to Canada.

I know for certain that Nature's Variety is having a recall on their raw complete chicken and complete organic chicken patties, so beware!

Just a heads up from a former "no-grain" feeder.

My girl is 10 but when she was 9 and I had had her for a year, we did a geriatric blood screen and her kidney values were through the roof!! Those super-high protein diets are sometimes too high and lack the amount of fibre and older dog needs. As soon as I switched her to a food that was lower in protein and contained grains, her kidney values normalized and yet she still has a great coat, no allergies :)

what do you guys think of the solid gold foods?

I have a 5yr old female that I have never been able to get weight on her an just recently took her to get blood work done an every thing came back good an he told me about solid gold.
I've been using it for about 5 days now an allready a huge improvement. Its the barking at the moon kind an has 41% protein an 20% fat.

I currently feed my pit Blue Buffalo chicken and wild rice. I give her a bit of canned mixed in in the morning. I also give her Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried patties and kisses as treats. My lab is very picky and after I thought I had found succes with Blue Buffalo she stopped eating it. Today, I gave her Orijen and she loved it so we'll see how that goes.

We are currently feeding Leo Taste of the Wild and he has been doing great on it for about 6 months. Coat looks great, great energy, poops are nice and firm, and he goes crazy for the venison flavor! We fed him Wellness Core food before and he did great on that too, but the price is about $15 cheaper for TOTW for 30 lb. bags, so we didn't go back to Wellness. We are now slowly transitioning into raw because it seems to be even cheaper.

I feed my pittie girl EVO. It's the only food she can handle. We've had her on a few others, but she had pretty bad digestive issues until we switched her to EVO.

Which flavor TOTW are you feeding? I am currently feeding my 1yr female 3-4 cups a day of the high praire formula.

We've got all 3 of ours on Diamond:Extreme Athlete and they love it! Their coats are gorgeous and they're building more muscle mass with ever day! This food has been great for them with their exercise level.

I think we need a new list up as the old list has some that no longer would be considered in the top...

Whole Dog Journal puts out a good list of foods every year. Check it out if you haven't.
