Actrium Puppy food

Hi, The breeder that I got my puppy from in Feb 23/16 was feeding the puppies and all her dogs the Actrium food from Walmart. She sent me different foods she recommended and the actrium was high on her list. I purchased a bag of the food before I got my puppy and he loves it. I do not add anything to it. It is a good price. Of course the pet stores are trying to get my to purchase their brands. So I have taste tests with Bailey and put some of the sample ones in down and the Actrium down and he always goes for the Actruim one. There is a review on petfood and the only thing they did not like was the dicalcuim carbonate but in the puppy food it is 17th down on the list. So for the price I am going to continue giving it to Bailey and he is a 2kg pom poo ( Pomeranian Poodle) ball of fluff.
