Default Switched to Rachel Ray's Nutrish.

The natural balance was getting way too expensive and really killing our budget and they were almost out of food so while at the local grocery store we picked up a bag of Rachel Ray Nutrish and the dogs LOVE it. Trigger hasn't even thrown up and it contains two mentions of corn (corn meal, corn gleuten meal) however has more protein then NB and seems to be of good quality.

I'm amazed as I have never seen Trigger or Ember so excited to eat dog kibble. Finally, something they will eat.

I couldn't find any reviews on it on dogfoodanalysis. I'd just be hesitant to feed anything that isn't grain-free. Have you tried Taste of The Wild? It's cheaper than NB but it's a 6-star grain free diet; great stuff and affordable.

I wish celebrities who know nothing about pet nutrition would not make a licensing deal for pet food!

Here you go, Kat:

Savannah-I'd definitely try Taste of the Wild. 5 star. Available at Tractor Supply.

Ooh thanks! Always forget about the Advisor site.

So I digress; it's just a 2.5 star. My best advice is to feed the highest quality you can afford for the price.

Kat and Karen are correct about Taste of the Wild, but if as you say $$ is an issue and you do have a Tractor Supply close by they also sell a food called 4Health that is a 4star food that is supposedly cheaper than Taste of the Wild--probably not as good a food, but just as good if not better than Natural Balance and definitely better than Rachel Ray. Most of Rachel Ray's protein is plant based from corn. Even though it says beef is the first ingredient, there is not enough for the protein count. Also, you run a risk in your dog eventually developing the allergies that many dogs develop on foods with corn in them. I have been studying foods lately until I am nuts, so I know how frustrating this food thing can be--hope this helps.
