    Have fed both, but my guys have had less gas and firmer stools on PPP.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    (And to see just how confused I really am, join us in my online blind at: Rick's 2014-2015 season log)

    I keep around 15 dogs at a time. Was feeding Enhance pro athlete and am now on PPP, stools are great, energy levels and recovery are great, coats could be better.

    Have been feeding PPP for many years. As others have stated - firm stools and great coats.

    If you are still undecided, Purina is also a large supporter of our dog games (not sure whether Euk does as well)

    When faced with the same decision I went with Euk and have been VERY happy with it. My dogs dont smell fishy but sometimes when I hose kennels it smells a little fishy. I think the fish oil in the food is what keeps the skin and coat nice. I think if I were feeding Pro Plan and not getting nice coats I would suppliment the fish oil

    I have to feed more on PP than when I was on Euk. However, I am not going to pay what EUK is asking to pay.

    I have had individual dogs do well and not so well on both. Some dogs will tolerate/thrive on one more than the other I guess. I prefer PP if both "work" for my dogs.

    I believe they are both good; however, I prefer Euk. The dogs seem to be able to keep weight on better, and have a shinier coat. Purina does a much better job at supporting our sport. They also realize that if they can get a pro to feed Purina, then all of his or her clients will also be faithful customers.

    I have dogs on both, one dog seems to have ear issues on the PPP so she is on EUK. I did have a half sister with the same issues and she had less ear issues on the EUK. A little food allergy I think either way both foods have been great, dogs are doing very well on the PPP my 9 year old is amazing! Recovery after a huge test was just such an eye opener for me.

    My favorite was Eagle Pack until they sold so I went to Euk and it has been very good.
