Your help will be appreciated.

I used to feed diamond, then country vet. I know feed the professional athlete by arkat. Love it. good stools, feed less, coats look great. Dogs run good.

Currently feed two HT dogs (11 month & 1.5 yrs) VF Performance (arkat) having switched from Nutro Large Breed Lamb & Rice. The younger female has firm stools, but large male doesn't do as well. Both seemed to put on some weight at same feed schedule, presumably from higher fat content, had to cut back some. Thought coats may have looked better w/lamb & rice as well. Hard to judge energy level for me. Also 12 week old puppy on Eukanuba large breed who can't seem to stay away from this VF performance around kennel - loves it , but will continue to feed the puppy feed for awhile.

We've been using Arkat for several years now, and we are very happy with it.

Arkat VF is OUTSTANDING!

But to get it locally, we had to pay a huge mark-up. To get it at a reasonable price, we were having to drive an hour each way to get it, and at today's gas prices it is no longer practical. :(

My dogs' trainer swears by it but, has had a hard time getting it since the tornado.

Is production up and running again or are you feeding food produced before the tornado?

Since it isn't available locally, I very much appreciated that they'd ship single bags to my door at a reasonable rate. But my two dogs didn't do nearly as well on it as some others. Ran right through 'em, and cutting portions as some suggested only emaciated the dogs, rather than firming their stools. K-cals don't count for much when they don't stay in the dog...

Feed the Enhance 30-22. We love it and have not had one dog turn it's nose to it. The coats are excellent and you feed quite a bit less than other performance feeds. Great feed for the price. Availability is getting better all the time. Our rep is bending over backwards to make ARKAT mainstream.

Loved evreything about it but the stools. Had dogs checked, nothing wrong. If you can handle loose stools, very nice results.

I had that problem for a while. I waited it out and they firmed up.

We use to feed the Enchanced Athlete in the kennel a little over 1.5yrs. . We had lots of Loose stools and lots of Excess being pooped out. We also experienced what seemed to be inconsitant feed. One month we would have good stools and then the next batch we would have loose stools almost like diahrea. Switched to Pro Plan and hav enot looked back, Firm Stools and not excessive like the ARKAT.
