No issues at all.

ALS changed, right?

ifed canidae back when jesse was 2 (5 years ago) she did awesome on it until they made the first ingredient change... which was probably 2 years after she was on it.. when they made the first change jesse did horrible, so i never went back, and she only ate the ALS one.

Yes, ALS changed. That's what we were feeding.

I bought a bag of the new formula a couple weeks ago. Since I got the new bag, I've been feeding Kane 1/2 and 1/2 (half old, half new) until I run out of the old. He's been fine on it so far. No issues at all. Hopefully it continues that way!

We had our allergy boy, Jordie on it for a short time but with the changes he developed diarrhea with a bit of blood - that was it, we switched immediately and ditched the remaining food.

I had no idea about the change in formula until i was already in a new bag. After 3 weeks of straight yellow poop, I said to hell with the Canidae. I switched them to Natural Balance briefly and am now feeding the Wellness Lamb and Rice. We're still trying to find a good medium. The dogs were doing WONDERFULLY on the old formula. Now, having switched to a new food, I have to keep an eye out on any ear and skin flair ups. Canidae totally inconvenienced me and I'm sadly disappointed in them.

Inara is currently being transitioned from Canidae to Wellness Core. She's still eating the old recipe, but I didn't even want to try the new recipe after reading all the horrible reviews.

We've been on the new formula for about 2-3 months.  Poo is softer but still formed.  We've had a bad case of whip worms and now another infection in one or two so I can't really tell how they are doing for sure.  Three of seven are under weight but that could've been the worms.I'll wait and see because the price is so good.  I can get a special thru my local pet store 44lbs for 36.99.  If there isn't improvement in the next month I want to either switch or suppliment with Evo. I wish I knew for sure what the cause is.

Just bumping to keep this near the top. Some fairly decisive results so far, and I'd like to get as many applicable votes as possible.

Both of our dogs are still eating Canidae. I haven't seen any problems. The weimaraner was itching for awhile, but we also suffered a flea infestation at about the same time. So far so good.
I think we've gone through 2 30# bags of the new food.

Im not sure when they changed it but my female Piggy used to be on Canidae up until about 2 months ago when she just REFUSED to eat it anymore...again since i dont know when the food was changed not sure if it is because it was changed or because she was being a brat...

I've kept feeding with the formula change and had no issues with either dog.
