I did LOTS of research when my dog was young and seemed to be having ?allergy problems. Worked with my vet, tried prescription hydolyzed protein foods with little effect. My research led me to grain free products with new protein sources she had not been exposed to. Cost was an issue as in most of our decisions. TOTW won hands down on all my comparison factors, AND the dog thrived on it! I continue to feed TOTW alternating flavors and utilize the slightly lower protein/fat level flavors in winter when we are not training regularly. Here in Maine TOTW is readily available both at chain stores and doggie boutiques. Price varies and I shopped around to find best deal. Recently I have read more concerns re Diamond products. I keep all packaging until last bit of kibble is eaten so I have lot# etc., but there has been no issues with TOTW in the past years I have used it. Skin and coat are fantastic, ears are clear and stool is soft, formed and minimal amounts. I do add probiotic enzymes(prozyme)
I have been feeding it for years.Great food but a bit pricey. Best place I have found to buy is Amazon.com for $44 a 30 lb bag no tax free shipping.

"Determining and applying the criteria for when and when not to use correction is the essence of the art of dog training. I make a distinction between a mistake and a lack of effort." - Mike Lardy - Volume I "After Collar Conditioning"
the totw plant in missouri has never had a recall. We get our food from missouri only and my dog is doing fine on it. Yes you can feed less of it.
Taste of the Wild is an excellent dog food.
