    Anyone out there use the "Grain Free Yukon River Salmon
    & Sweet Potato" ? I am currently using a grain free food (Natural Balance), but it is only 20/10 Protein/Fat, which doesnt seem to be the norm for working dogs.

    When Diamond had problems with aflatoxin contamination, I read an explanation of testing (and occurrence) that made it sound difficult to prevent. Avoiding corn seems like a solution.

    I have another concern with corn and soy, though, and that is the prevalence of GMO products. In a feeding study on pigs the GMO feed was associated with inflammation and other abnormalities. Not something on which I want to take a chance, for myself or the dogs.

    I have been using this food for over a year now. Dogs are doing great on it. Had a friend that just switched and his dog is doing great on it as well. CamoDog, give it a shot, I think you will like it. I have never used that exact formula but love what I have used.

    the grain free does come in smaller bags and is more expensive. when my dad signed up to be a distributor they included a few bags of the grain free for free. probably healthier for the dogs but he didnt notice any difference between it and their regular food as far as stool, coat, behavior etc

    David, like Blaine said I've been on it for over a year. I have yet to see a price increase and was actually told last week that I would not see one. I don't really feed any less than I did on euk but the kennel as a whole does very well on it. I have had only one dog not have great stool quality and only one other with a dull coat. FWIW, she's been on 4 other foods in her life and has never had a shiny coat. I feed the 24/20 and I like the weight management and recovery. Its a great food for the money. Its funny, I hear some say its the worst thing they've ever fed and I ask them what they're feeding now? Almost always its PPP...and that's BY FAR the second WORST food I've ever fed...right in front of science diet! Id recommend it to anyone. The distributor is in alpharetta. If you need his contact info let me know. I'll be glad to get you 2 together.

    I've been feeding my dog the 26/18 formula for about a year now and he is doing great on it. One of my trainer's personal dogs was having weight issues and we started talking about the Victory food. He switched is personal dog to it and ended up going with the Victory 26/18 formula for all of his dogs.

    the price change that we are experiencing is related to the trucking/distrubution partner not the manufacturing plant. the company that delivers to our region has said all their dog food will be going up $1 for transportation costs.
