    Default Purina Dog Chow

    Hello everyone,
    I am not totaly satisfied with the current food I am feeding my dogs. In my search for a new brand I bumped into Purina Dog Chow.
    I am not known with this product. I believe its an American product.
    So I thought lets ask the Americans!
    Are there any RTF ers using this product?
    What's your opinion about it?
    Please let me know.
    Greetings,
    Mike

    MHO is that it isn't enough for working retrievers. Purina Pro Plan, Eukanuba, Diamond are all better choices.

    I fed my first dog Dog Chow...before I knew that there were better foods.

    I don't care for the Dog Chow. I especially don't like the way it comes out after the dog is done with it.The Pro Plan from Purina I like.

    One of my dogs eats Purina ONE and the other 4 are on some formula of Purina Pro Plan. I am very happy with how all of them do on the food they are on. The plain Dog Chow just isn't enough for a hard working dog.

    Try the Eukanuba? Adult Large Breed Premium Performance.
    30% protien / 20% fat.

    The food has been working well for me.
