    TOTW is mfg by Diamond Pet Foods http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diamond_Pet_Foods.

    One of our dogs had cronic ear problems for 4 years. We were on PPP. We switched to TOTW Salmon with no grains and the ear problem cleared up in 3-4 weeks. Coat looks great too.

    We fed TOTW for several months with good results but switched because of Diamonds track record.

    But TOTW is a Diamond Product > < That's the reaction you might see here.


    I don't like feeding my pup Corn or Wheat or Meat By-Products either, so I don't.

    Have always fed Euk. I ran into a problem getting it in one of the places we lived, so I changed to the TOTW Wetlands. Dogs loved it, did well on it then I found out it was made by Diamond just as they had their most recent recall! Not only that, but mine was coming from the factory that issued the recall. NO MORE! Diamond has just failed its customers too many times. We know where quality control sits in their hierarchy. So back to Euk, as long as I can.
