    We feed it. I like it for the price. Keeps weight on the dogs better and is quite palatable to the dogs.

    I really liked it except for the stools. My dogs were half very runny and half somewhat loose. Never could get solid stools.
    Pay attention to your dog, and train that dog as an individual. No schedules, no cookie-cutter formulas. You'll be fine.

    The above was posted by Evan Graham, I liked it and decided to use it for my sig. Sorry for the confusion.

    Try Tractor supply's 4Health, No grain. I have been using it in my kennel over a year. Dimond had some problems a while back and some dogs died, that's when they lost me.

    I switched to Diamond a few months back when Nutro just got too pricey. My dogs are doing well on it but I have noticed some soft stools.
    I think they were all made to shoot because if they were not why did they give them that whirr of wings that moves you suddenly more than any love of country . . . I think that they were made to shoot and some of us were made to shoot them and if that is not so well, never say we did not tell you that we liked it.

    High protein and fat will give loose stools. My concern is how much stool there is big stool means they aren't getting all the nutrients out of the food. I feed diamond and plan on feeding it for the rest of their lives.
    Don't let the incident that happened 5 years ago, be a deterent. All mfg. have had an issue like this sometime or another.

    I used to feed Diamond and was great except it gave my dog a lot of gas so I had to switch!
