:confused:Corn, by products, just look at the list and its JUNK food not good for any dogs! I would not recommend this to anyone and isn't this their best Purina one? YUCK!:frown:There are so many better quality foods out there a premium brand is the best!

like the other 2 said, purina is horrible for your pup. how premium you want to go definitely depends on how much you want to spend. many members will suggest feeding raw to save money since kibble can be pricey.

i feed evo and merricks. alternating every few months.

I've learned alot during my time on this forum and I definitely agree w/everyone. Purina is not the best choice to be feeding your dog(s). High quality food can be pretty pricey but is high in protein. Depending on what you are looking for for your dog will depend on what food you will want to feed your dog.
