Interesting over time which foods are still on peoples lists. What about the Taurine issue that pet owners want to see this in their kibble. What top 5 grain free kibbles with taurine be on peoples list.

Something for the Aussie members:

Stay Loyal

Healthy Everyday pets (Idiot Pete Evans food)

These are the only 2 Aussie brands I feed.

I also add into my rotation:

Holistic Select small breed, which is an American company.

I so wanted my dog to do well on TOTW, but he started vomiting after every meal of it, so had to take that off the list.

Not too many brands I like these days lol I have gotten picky

Annamaet
Farmina
Carnilove
Ziwipeak
Oooh yes, i forgot about ziwipeak. I buy the small bags and mix some in to his food container with his regular kibble, a bag lasts a long time doing it this way.

Another Aussie brand i forgot about is Frontier pets, it's a freeze dried food.

Yea Ziwipeak is awesome stuff. The only downside of it for my dog is that it is soo high in calories and she is old and inactive. That is an awesome idea though!! Mixing it with the bag of kibble. I am going to have to try that. Not only will it stretch the Ziwi much longer but I will not have to worry about too many extra calories. It's like those kibbles with the weird added freeze dried bits but better lol

Haha exactly! And the smell and flavour permeate through the rest of the kibble :thumb:

Ziwipeak is a great topper but an awful expensive daily feed for two dogs.

If you had to feed a LIMITED INGREDIENT kibble which one would you chose ???

1. CANIDAE..

2. CANINE CAVIAR...

3. FIRST MATE...

Is there a reason why you want a limited ingredient food? Any specific ingredient you are trying to avoid? Earthborn makes a limited ingredient food called "Earthborn Venture". Quite a lot of flavour options and they are a pretty decent company imo.

My GSD does have some minor-ish allergies so if I don't want to see her itching I choose an LID.

Your choice is actually a good one. I may not be to crazy about the 2nd ingredient....chickpeas Other than that I like it.

I chose Firstmate because 1. made in Canada... 2. human grade food 3. NO pea's of any kind 4. very limited ingredients which may make it easier to determine her allergies so I can then hopefully move her towards a NON LID kibble.

Yea out of your three options I would pick Firstmate. Venture does have a pea free flavour, the Pollock one. Just fish and pumpkin which seems like a nice combo. I don't know why they felt the need to add peas to every other flavour lol

Me either, and I really like the idea of having other protein choices also.

Thank's for your time and advice. I was feeding INSTINCT which was going fine but my GSD chokes on those darn tiny bites so I had to move on. Just started the Firstmate today so we will see how it goes.

I just remembered about this forum! Life gets busy and then all the good conversations dwindle...

My top 5 foods are vastly different now, they have been for a couple years now because of conversations with Dr. Doolittle on this forum.

I am not sure I have 5 top foods to list, but here are the ones I am happy with:
Purina Proplan
Royal Canin
Hills (science diet, ideal balance)
Fresh pet food rolls (for picky poodle)

Canned and dry for all of these.
