    Do your dogs get really bad breath from this stuff? My dog does great on it, but his breath is just rank. His teeth are clean, almost no tarter.

    I bought 3 bags of the 'Sport' today and compared with one of the sample bags of 'Pro Plan Performance' (both purple bag 30/20 with the same dog).... Look closely and you will see the recommended feeding amount went up a tad on the new stuff-- even with the same guaranteed analysis and ingredients. Not sure why this would go up with a change in the bag? Either way, it suggests that you would get fewer feeding days out of each bag.

    (By the way, the Sport bags here in Monticello, AR are 37.5# for $43 each)

    I need coupons too, or I may go back to Diamond Lamb & Rice

    It is the same weight in Port Huron. And I believe it is $45 but Pet Supplies Plus usually gives coupons or on your receipt from your purchase is $3.oo off next purchase which is nice. If you go in on senior days another percentage off. Wouldn't change. Great food!

    Ah, bait and switch. A few weeks ago they had 37.5 pound bags, now they are all 34 pound bags. Same thing they did a few years back when they switched to the sherds and reduced from 40 to 37.5.
    I did notice that some of the shred blends are still 37.5, but all the sport or performance and non shredded were all 34. A month ago or two ago when they first came out all were 37.5.
