    I just switched to Loyall from Euk a month ago. I feed the 31/20 Professional. So far so good! Bags seem consistent. Dogs are holding weight well, have firm stools, and good coats. Happy with it so far!

    My question is about the Loyall puppy blend. I will be picking up my new lab in a few weeks and was considering using their puppy food as I have been using their adult formula for my Boykin and he seems to like it fine. However, their puppy food is 31% protein and 20% fat. Most other manufacturers have a lower protein/fat content for larger breed puppies because of concerns over growth that is too rapid and increasing stress on the developing joints. Have any of you used the Loyall puppy food and what are your thoughts on it. Also, do you believe that a 31/20 blend is too much for a lab puppy? Would something in a 27/14 range be better?

    I have 5 pups on it right now. They are all lean, good coats, and all have firm stool.

    Raised a Golden litter on it this summer and have a friend that raised a couple Shiba Inu litters on it. Pups did well on it.

    Professional 31/20 is what our trainer feeds all his dogs. It has a high protein and fat content. It's cheaper than Blue Buffalo so I might start feeding it, too.

    We have been feeding Loyall for about three years now. Been very happy with the results and the looks and energy level on our dogs. We feed Professional.
    I put one of our "hard to keep weight on" females first for three months. She looked very good after three months. Switched all our adults over to Professional for three months and kept customer dogs on Iams.
    Wanted to be convinced. After that three months all dogs were put on Loyall. The puppy formula has been great for our litters. Have had about 10 litters on the puppy over past couple years and they
    have done great. They eat it well and gain weight at a good rate and go to their new homes with nice belly's and good coats and stools. Company has been easy to work with and offer a breeder's and kennel discount.
    Glad I switched............They do not have a good marketing system so it is a little harder to find

    I had bad exsperience with it in that it wasn't being digestied very well in several dogs. Stools and dog looked going, but got to noticing pink to bright red spot of blood after stool. Took several dogs to vet with everyone of them clear of all parasites. Took stool samples to vet from differnt dogs and it was determined that it had un digestied pieces of food and were cutting rectum. Quit went back to pro plan.
