Hello. After long thought and quite a bit of research and conversations with my vet of 10 years, I have made the decision to pull out of feeding Innova to my dogs (Chihuahua, Boston Terrier, and mixed breed) and cats (17 year old Russian Blue, 6 year old tabby and twin 10 week old tuxedo kittens). I am struggling between the decision of Merrick and Fromms. The kiddos LOVED the Merrick canned food, but they also loved the Fromms chicken and veg kibble. They only get a little bit of wet food in the morning (one can is split between everyone) then they get dinner of dry food. I am just really curious to find out what everyone thinks. I appreciate everyone's advice :biggrin:

These arent really my only options, I just narrowed down to these two. I also thought about Wellness Core...I thought about feeding raw, but both of my Chis are hypoglycemic (not sure if that makes a difference). Plus, I do have eight animals, so while I dont mind spending whatever it takes, I have to take into consideration the time and cost of cooking raw, as the vet bills for 8 (I just lost my 18 year old cat in January) plus flea meds, etc. Really add up.

Thank you to everyone..I never realized how important food was before-the kids were thriving on Innova, so the recent turn of events really bother me. I will discuss the raw diet with my vet...my vet tech was the one who told me about Merrick, since we live in Texas. I had my two oldest cats (17&18) on Purina One for about the last 10 years and they always did great..I just happened to stumble onto the dogfood websites and instantly became very upset. Thankfully my Chis seem to have their hypgogylcemia (that has got to be sooo spelled wrong-lol) under control..they seem to only have seizures when they dont eat enough..and the last seizure anyone experienced was over two years ago. Also, my Chis dont seem to ever shake..they both suffer from Napolean syndrome and walk around as if they are pitbulls. I dont think they have any idea they are so small!! :)
