For Those That Left Timberwolf

Postby Ntchwaidumela » Sun May 11, 2008 12:43 am

Hey All-

I know many of you have left using Timberwolf due to its changes, but I was wondering what you folks have swithched too?

The reason being, friends of ours just became new parents to a 6 month old labradoodle. I've told them about RAW, but they would like to stick to kibble.

I know TW was highly rated, but since its changes, many people have jumped shipped and I would like to know where the majority have migrated too so that I could recommend that particular brand to the new parents.

Thanks to all those who reply :bowdown:

:peace:

I plan on switching to Taste of the Wild when my Canidae runs out. I haven't read too many bad things about TOTW, and it's grain free.

Well, I've never fed Timberwolf, but when I feed kibble, I've used Nature's Variety for years, and I LOVE how my dogs do on it...never any loose stool (except with the grainless formulas, which I stay away from) and it's the ONLY food that doesn't agitate Vicki's allergies.

I left TW way before the chagnes as all of my dogs did poorly on it.(looked like skeletons eventually on 5 cups a day)
I alternate a couple months at a time on one of these
Nature's Variety
Innova
Canidae

Hiya All-

Hmmm . . . seems like Nature's Variety is leading the pack (pardon the pun lol ). I will wait for several more responses before I suggest NV.

But what do you folks think of Orijen? It was something I was gonna suggest to them, but I thought I'd ask the Jedi Council in this matter of food roflmao

Oh, oh, oh, I also suggested The Honest Kitchen to them, but the thought of a $60 dog food was a bit much.

Thanks to all who replied :bowdown: but please keep up with the suggestions and recommendations :thumbsup:

I'm sure others are interested.

:peace:

I've never used Timberwolf but have used Canidae and now on TOTW – I really like how my dog is doing on it.

I looked at Orijen and Instinct too (I was researching specifically for grain-free kibble) and both look really great but I have yet to try them.

I was contemplating switching to TW, and had gone as far to getting a sample pack, when folks pointed out their concerns with the brand.

Did try TOW, but learned on another forum that it is part of Diamond Foods, which I am not fond of.

So, shifted away from that one after one bag, and are now back to Innova EVO, along with Pitcairn based home cooked recipies.

I used to feed Timberwolf several years ago but stopped because I did not like how my dogs weight fluctuated on it. I've been feeding Nature's Variety for a while now and am in the same boat with concreterose, my dogs do really well on it, and the chicken flavor is the only food my allergy girl can eat that doesn't make her flare up.

I AM JEALOUS OF ALL OF YOU WHO CAN FEED YOUR DOG(S) NATURE'S VARIETY.

Ella cannot have barley and does not do well on the grain-free formulas they offer. So we're stuck with Timberwolf. She does SOOO well on it.

Lucy did well on TW for about two years or so, and then started having reflux-like issues with it, so we switched to Nature's Variety prairie and haven't looked back.

She does very well on the venison formula specifically.
