    We switched to Victor 3 or 4 months ago. No problems and cheaper than Euk.

    Been feeding it for about 2 years now. I feed the grain free Yukon River 32% Protein and 15% fat. I mix it during the season with the Ultra Pro 42% protein and 22 % fat to keep weight on during hunting season and cold weather. I get it at my local feed store and they keep it in stock.

    Prior to that I fed the performance feeds from both Purina and Eukanuba, but it seemed like every time I needed feed they were out of the feed I needed.

    I was buying both from Petco and Petsmart. They would have plenty of all the other feeds just not the feed I needed.

    If there are any veterinarians on here I would like their thoughts on if the ultra high protein is bad for the dog's organs.

    High protein is only an issue with a dog who has liver or kidneys that are not functioning at full capacity. Many tests have proven that high protein does not cause kidney damage.. but.... Water needs to be ingested at higher levels to allow any excess protein in the bloodstream to be eliminated by the kidneys.

    You are going to find that the sweet spot for performance dogs are the 30-20 formulas... The extra carbs do allow for the glycogen to be absorbed into the muscles... Anything over 35 % protein has never been seen to be able to be utilized by a canine... they will just pee the excess out. Some dogs even do better on 24-20 diets because with higher amounts of protein they do not perform as well. The 20 % fat allows for the energy as fat has twice the Calories then protein or carbs.

    If I were to feed a dog any kibble with higher then 35% protein I'd have the Vet run a full pre-surgical blood work and a urinalysis to determine the health of your dog. I run four of these every year because of Lymes disease. The results keep you on top of your dogs health. Do at least 1 a year for peace of mind.

    Lyme disease must be running rampant in your area.
