Has anyone used the new NUTRO line of food that has come out??? It is called NUTRO Ultra and it looks pretty good. I just switched my pup on it from IAMS. I'm glad I did it to after I read this thread..
. But anyway Milenko seems to like it better than the IAMS and it looks alot healthier. The ingredients are all natural and they are alot easier to read than Canidae.......I mean what the heck is dried enterococcus faecium and dried aspergillus oryzae fermentation extract??

The only thing I noticed about the Canidae is that you feed them less so you will probably save some money and also the NUTRO is a little bit more expensive, but if it is a better quality food then I think the few extra dollars are worth it. Well let me know if you are using it or what you think.
