    I have always been a PPP fan but after picking some up ther other day I have fed my last. After tax it was $51 something a bad! I'm feeding 11 big dogs and 12 puppies right now so I'm done with Purina. I'll keep the puppies on it until they go to their new homes but thats it. I switched the big dogs over to River Run made by Nutrena. They are all doing good on it and it's about half the price. I get more stool but it's a good stool.

    I just phoned Purina and asked. I was told the new Pro Plan Sport (All Life Stages) is the same 30/20 Pro Plan Performance formula, just with a new name. No change. I have a Petco coupon for a free bag to use within the next few weeks, so I guess I may be able to compare the old and new bags side by side for myself.

    Just bought another bag yesterday...new packaging but formulas the same (performance/sport) and the bag size didn't change...nor price. This was at Fleet Farm.

    There are coupons everywhere for Purina feed. I havent paid full price for a bag in over 2 years. Mostly $5 off, but its better then nothing.

    For anyone with multiple dogs (seems like maybe you are supposed to have minimum 3 or 4 but not sure about that) sign up for Purina Pro Club! You save your weight circles and mail them in - they send you back $7 checks to apply to food purchases. I just sent in approx. 9 mos worth of circles (feeding 4 dogs) and will get back (20) $7 checks ($140). When combined with the free bag for each 10 I buy (at Petco), the sale prices which I use to stock up, and occasional other coupons it probably represents at least a 20% saving off normal shelf price. In addition, if you are a breed club member and 'register' with Pro Club for your club - they donate (based on weight circles) toward health and rescue annually. Our (Chesapeake) charitable trust gets approx. $1300 annually, with a matching amount going to AKC Canine Health Foundation on behalf of our club. So in essence I am donating for canine health and rescue by using PPP.

    You might want to double check with your local Petco. Ours down here stopped doing the 10 for 1 deal a while back. I dont know if its a regional thing or not, just didn't want you to get burned.

    Same here but not for Performance, and yes it did go up in price, but same size bag. I will start to buy mine from my Pro for $40.
