Never heard of it before today, when the poster BullyProud recommended it to me on another thread. Maybe BullyProud will chime in here...

no no no lol I didn't mean for it to come off like that I reccomened it as one of the cheapest decent foods out there but twolf is WAAAAY better! Most of the diamond varities have corn in them the Lamb and rice does not but it's defenetly not one of my favorite foods, I personally wouldn't feed it but it's way better than the grocery store stuff thats for sure, the lamb is anyway, I know about it because my mother feeds it. She likes the results she gets and her dogs look pretty good but she is alway commenting on how good red bull looks at the same time lol

If you can find it and get it stick with the Twolf or one of the other high quality foods. Diamond is a mid grade food not bad but not good either. If you really want to call off the twolf and go with diamond try the "premium edge'' it's diamods super premium line pretty decent food. I'd still stick with the Twolf myself though...

Hows that for chimin in :tongue:

I am surprised you don;t remember hearing abut Diamond food back in the winter.
They made all the papers, internet and t.v. news when their moldy corn food poisoned/killed many dogs.
If you do a search on here, it was a lot of posts made about it too.
try Diamond food recall and read for yourself.

It was the corn in it that was causing the problems... just one MORE reason to stay away from dog foods with corn in them :cool:

I love my Timberwolf I don't know what I would do with out it. Oh wait yes I do feed only raw :thumbsup:

On the east coast one of Diamond manufacturing plants had a SERIOUS problem with mold in their machines, resulting in huge amounts of dog deaths due to the the food..... HOWEVER it was only one plant so it was limited to a few amount of states AND if you got diamonds "top of the line" food, which is their lamb and rice formula, then the mold wasnt in it anyway...... to OP Diamond IMO is a decent food and affordable, I'd choose it over Science Diet ANYDAY however if your feeding timberwolf than the person who told you to switch doesnt really know too much about whats good for dogs and what isnt so i'd treat it like a unwanted garbage and throw it out

I recently switched my dogs from Diamond Lamb and Rice to Timberwolf, and they do MUCH better on TW. Healthier skin and coat, less allergy problems, overall better immune systems.
