I have been looking at different grain-free foods and was wondering what your thoughts were on the following foods....Orijen Adult Grain Free, Wellness Core and Acana Pacifica.

Also, if you have any other suggestions as to other grain free foods, please share!
Thanks!

I had Oscar on the Wellness Core Ocean formula for a while over the past couple months. He did well on it.

Fromm's has two grain-free formulas and American Natural Premium (manufactured by the Fromm company) has one as well. Both of those brands have been used in our house with success, although I haven't tried their respective grain-free formulas.

Hope that helps a bit!

Merry Christmas! smile

Orijen and Acana are the best (made by the same company) in terms of the quality of ingredients. They don't work for every dog though.

Kailor is on Nature's Variety Instinct and is doing well on that.

Where do you buy your dog food, Ashley?

I feed Dante Nature's Logic and he's done VERY well on it over the last 2+ years.

Though some say it's grain free and others don't (Depends on people's definition of Millet http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-millet.htm )

Though the price tag can give sticker shock depending on the protein variety I've found over the years that it's costs me less than $1.75 a day to feed Dante

I rotate too - Acana, Orijen, Nature's Logic are the main ones I rotate with. I try to switch every couple of months.

Congrats on the contest!!!

We use the Wellness Core and Orijen.
Hero eats the reduced fat wellness and does very well with it.
Ella eats the large breed puppy and Jake alternates between the Six Fish and the Regional Red. I've been happy with all the formulas.
