    Default Enhance 30-22

    I see from one of the food polls that nobody said they feed this food. I also see they are one of our sponsors/advertisers here on RTF.

    I was thinking of switching since Zeke is running a bit soft on Purina Puppy Chow. But I was curious if anyone has used it. Here is what I am looking at http://www.enhance3022.com/nutrition/LargePuppy.php

    Any input?

    I've been feeding enhance for the past several months. I've gotten the same results if not better than euk and pro plan. The 30-22 was a bit much for my pups, but i've fed the pro athlete and hunter's edge with no problems. Dogs look better than ever. Can't go wrong in my opinion.

    Glad to hear these positive responses. Being that they are a sponsor of a site that I get ALOT of info and enjoyment from I have been looking at their ingredients and strongly considering feeding it to my dog.

    Good deal. Looking at the price, it's not near the cost of Euk or any other high end brands. I can get it here for $27 a 40 pound bag.

    I'm going to make the switch.

    I've been using the Pro Athlete 30/22 for my nursing dams and weaning pups, no problems. Only one source in my area and they are notoriously high priced on everything, 40# bag runs $40 with tax. It was $27 the first bag I bought last spring then jumped more than $10/bag once I started buying a bag or two a month, of course. But the food itself I like.

    Like I said, here in Texas it is $27 per 40 pounds. Purina is $23 per 40 pounds, but Zeke has loose stools with it. Plus, the Enhance looks to have better ingredients. The puppy chow has chickem by-product wheras the Enhance has chicken meal. Not a dog food expert, but by-product sounds like the left overs. I will give Enhance a call in the AM to see what they say about their product vs. what i am currently feeding.

    Anyhow, I am going to switch to something and since so many pro's endorse it and it comparable price, I'm going to give the 28-14 a try.
