    Try Annamaet Manitok (red meat), Annamaet Aqualuk (fish) or Annamaet Option (fish). The Natural Choice food you are talking about is not cheap and it is very low in protein and fat.

    Annamaet is a PA-Based company that made the the first performance food. Well known in hunting and performance circles.

    Wayne, I'm not a big fan of science diet myself, overpriced for product they have.
    I don't know anything about natural choice, sorry.
    Royal canin puts out an excellent hypoallergenic food according to my vet, but it is spendy. Maybe compare the two and see if they are close in ingredients.
    Sorry your dog has allergies, maybe talk to your vet about seeing a veterinary dermatologist if allergies gets outta control in the future.

    You might check into Diamond dog food they sell some grain free foods and price is reasonable for a 40# bag.

    Wayne, look at the ingredients of the two. My boss had checked into it for her grandma and they are the exact same ingredients. Science Diet is just expensive junk. You wouldn't believe how many dogs we groom that are on it that have tons of problems. If we can get thru to the owners and have them change, the issues go away almost always. Science Diet is worse than Pedigree in my opinion!

    I was looking at the Natural Choice brochure. They have a Grain Free Venison meal and Potato formula also. It is a little cheaper than the Hills D/D.

    Does anyone have other recommendations for dog food. I don't know what he is allergic too.

    The vet wanted to wait until he was a year old before testing. He is going in for his annual exam and checkup on 5/22/13. We will discuss testing. He is currently 14 mo. old.

    My 13 mo old BLF has had digestive issues since day 1. After trying a few different options, Diamond lamb/rice, and what my trainer suggested, Eukanuba sensitive digestion, the vet suggested grain-free Nature's Domain Salmon and Sweet Potato only sold at Costco. In only a few days there was an amazing difference in stools and her energy-not sure that we needed more, but we got it I believe it's around $45 for a 35# bag. I'm sure it won't be the trick for everyone, but it worked great for me.

    My one lab had such allergies. Pro plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach worked very well for us.
