    I was feeding my guy Orijen when he was a pup no issues and then when I switched to their adult formula I couldn't feed enough to keep his weight right, so I switched to Pro Plan Performance 30/20 (more calories). His stool seem fine and his weight has been up. I don't love the ingredients but it works.

    Dr. Tims Pursuit. I've fed it about 8 weeks and can see a difference It is considerable more in price compared to my previous feed ,but upon contacting Dr. Tims company they informed me that it will take about %20 less (seems to be accurate to me ). They have the best coat I've ever seen on them and its an all stage formula, so from puppy to senior just one brand takes care of it ,no need to keep 2 or 3 different feeds on hand.

    My female is due to whelp any minute now ,and I plan to send a 5# bag of Dr. Tims home with each new pup.

    I just googled DR. Tims and found the price to be listed at $77.00 for a 40 pound bag, is this accurate?

    For Momentum it is about $73 on Mr. Chewy but that is a 35/25 and you will feed considerably less than other foods. The upland breeds would benefit most from this one.

    Pursuit 30/20 goes for $65 for 44lbs

    Kinesis 26/16 goes for $60 for 44lbs.

    All those prices are tax free.

    I use Pursuit and don't find it anymore expensive than PPP. You will get better results on his base 26/16 food than you will on other performance foods.

    Here is where I have been getting it from http://www.chewy.com/s?dept=all&quer...mit-button.y=0

    If you sign up for auto ship you get %15 off your 1st order. I was scepical at first, but I have grown to like the idea of a bag of food being on my front porch every 4 weeks. Always free shipping.

    I went from Taste of Wild to a higher protein- fat content Earthborn Holistic Grain Free 38/20

    Reviews were good and dogs like it.

    Dr. Tim's Pursuit. Made the switch about 2 bag ago. Previous Pro plan user for 15 yrs. Much better stools and skinny dog is gaining weight. Happy so far.

    52,000 dog food threads all about the same thing and I just found this out. I'd never done a search on Turnips.
