Canidae Grain-free ALS

I just saw that Canidae has come up with a grain-free ALS formula and i am curious to see what you think about it.

It's fairly high in fat (18%). I feed Wellness Core but before I decided on that food, I did some research on grain free foods and found that alot of them are high in fat. And grain free does not mean it's also low carbohydrate, in fact its normally higher in carbs. The Whole Dog Journal puts out a listing of kibble they consider to be good, based on specific criteria. They have a seperate listing dedicated to grain free foods that lists the pros and cons of grain free and what to avoid.

Hope that helps!

Looks pretty good to me, I am liking the new group of foods coming out in that 30-35% range of protein. The only thing I don't personally like about it is the amount of different protein sources but that is more just a personal issue as I find my furries sensitive to that kind of thing.
