Interesting Dog Food Discovery

Was looking at the dog foods on the DFA site and discovered that Kirkland food is no longer as highly rated as it was...Bayley's finishing up a bag that I've been mixing Blue Wilderness into to see how that works for her. The Wilderness has a good rating which makes me happy. Then I discovered that beet pulp has been linked to things like ear issues, so no more beet pulp for my pup She's had itchy ears for a long time, there's no discharge and they're not smelly or gunky and they're not red just itchy. So I'm hoping the switch will help. Her coat hasn't been nearly as nice for awhile now either, so I'm hoping that once I get her completely switched it will improve too.

I also discovered which I found interesting that some companies dry food rates low but their canned food rates alot higher.

DFA seems to have a real bias for ultra premium brands. Ibuy most of my food at Bark and Fitz and they dont ven know the 6 star brands from that site.

It is a good food,especially for the price. It is probably the protein source causing th itching, not the beet pulp.

Kirkland is still a 4 out of 5 with the advisor and rates 110 out of 100, an A+, using another popular method.

I've fed it and will likely again once we work through the Merrick varieties.
