Another grain free kibble

Postby concreterose » Tue Sep 11, 2007 11:22 am

I saw this yesterday at the feed store where I get treats. The owner told me that it's actually made by Diamond?

Anybody heard of it?

Mil, no, I haven't heard about this food but you sure have peaked my curiosity. I need to do a comparison between the NV ingredients and this food.

I wonder why they have bison & venison on the ingredient list twice?
ETA: One reason that I supplement with NV when I feed kibble is because they don't have so many protein sources in their kibble, and I have to be careful with that with Vicki because of her allergies. Solomon tends to get runny stool as well if a food is too rich.
This food has bison, venison, lamb, AND chicken, which would probably be a gastric disaster for my two lol

The ingredients look pretty good. Is it a low carb kibble though? I like the use of sweet potato as a main starch in a kibble.

The only thing I don't like about it is the ocean fish meal is non specific

Price comparison? Couldn't find a price on the website.
Seems pretty decent. Has anybody tried it?

I was interested in that too. Also, how would it compare with TW or Orijen (if you feed it to a 10 week old pup)

Hopefully the fish formula for this food is WAY cheaper than Orijen's fish formula. I'd LOVE to try Orijen's fish formula, but there's NO WAY I'm paying that price for it.
UGH.

Regular Orijen, yeah, we've tried it, but I'm not willing to do it because Ella is very similar to Mil's Vicki in allergy regard and Solomon in digestive issues.

OK I just called to check on the price. He said that right now, all the formulas are the same price, there may be like a $1 difference between some formulas.
30 lb. for $40.99
5 lbs for $10
He also said (had his sales hat on LOL) that the angle that they are coming from with this food is that the Pacific Stream w/Smoked Salmon formula is low protein, so is suitable for senior and low energy dogs, unlike other grain free kibbles that are high protein.

Not bad. Surely worth more research!
Is it new new or has it been out a few months?

He just got it in a few days ago. I asked again who makes it, and it is made by Diamond.

I think it is made by Diamond, since the ingredients list and definitions read exactly the same word for word on both sites. That being the case, they use meal made with whole Menhaden fish preserved with vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) and rosemary, per the nutritionist at Diamond, and is Ethoxyquin free.

Hope that helps
