if your breeder or vet is pushing a food that they sell then yes they are getting kick back. Just about every food company out there has a breeders programs..they get free puppy packs and free food.Cooper said:The reason the breeder told you not to switch? Probably because that was his/her preference and they've had good results with that brand. The breeder I got Cooper from did the same thing but with regular Purina Dog Chow.
He did give me a puppy starter kit with a lot of Purina products in there so I wondered if he got a kickback from Purina in some form or another. One of the breeder folks on here might be able to answer that though.
