    I have been feeding Nutri Source Performance to my dog since November last year. He used to eat 5 cups Purina and was too skinny and had a dull coat. Now he eats 3 cups NS is perfect weight and has bright shinny coat. I buy from wags.com with free delivery in 2 days for about $52.00 for a 40 lb bag. Cannot imagine $75 per bag....just search on web.

Go to their web site and read the label. No corn
    I heard from Chris Ledford recently changed and is no longer feeling this food?

We have tried lots of different foods from PPP to Orijen and Dr. Tim's is the one that can consistently keep the weight on in heavy training. You do not have to feed much of it, Momentum is 588kcals per cup, where PPP and Orijen are about 480-490. Just our personal experience in the food game.

    dr. Tim's is rated 5 /5 on dog food advisor and highly rated in whole dog journal. You can't beat the fact that the winning Iditarod team the last two years in a row feeds this food. What that tells me is that it gives the long-term energy that a field trial dog needs for training and trials on the weekend. this is the product i am leaning towards.

    i actually think the nutrisource super performance is the better product over the performance It definitely has more chicken in it since the first two ingredients are chicken meal and chicken. When dog food companies list chicken as their first ingredient, this is uncooked chicken. Once it is cooked down there is much less of it and the other ingredients takeover as being primary. Chicken meal is chicken that has already been cooked and has been ground into meal. There is actually much more chicken in a product that says chicken meal as the first ingredient, chicken as the second ingredient.
    Nutrisource is rated 4/5 on dog food advisor.

    i am going to be talking with a canine nutritionist from Cornell next week and then will make a decision......

    I spoke with a NS rep. in Middleton a few months ago and he told me that more than a few dogs have a hard time with the Super Performance. He said that the few percentages more of both protein and fat can upset dogs stomachs and give them runny stools. FWIW.

    Good grief. There is no perfect dog food. There is one that is best for your dog. Pick one, try it and see if you like the results. If not, pick another and try it.

    Susan, Chris had his rep drop off a bunch of bags at our trial here near Fargo a month ago. It's made just down the road here in the same vicinity as human food and I've heard they use the same policies between the different plants. Nutrisource has been a good feed for me in the past but their prices seem to keep rising, almost substantially the last year or two. I have been feeding ProPlan for a long time and didn't really see a change in my dogs when on Nutrisource and with PP raising prices again here recently and starting to see a lot of flaky skin, I thought I'd give Loyall a shot. I'm a committee member with our local Delta Waterfowl chapter and Delta has a deal with Loyall so I thought I'd give it a go. Theres only two places that I can get it around here, a fancy pet food place and Tractor Supply. The ingredients seem to be very nice and their Professional (31/21) and Active Adult (26/19) are around $35 for a 40lbs bag. So far on the Professional I've seen softer stools but I'm now mixing the Active Adult and they've tightened up again so I'm just thinking the Professional is a little hot and paired with the warm temps. Their coats have lost the dander and wiry feel and they look great.
