Thank you all...I am grateful just in the fact that you looked at it.
I don't denie that it costs more than alot of other very well made foods. All I can go by is that my dogs eat half as much on the Timber Wolf than they did of any of the others. Which means, yes I pay more per bag, but it last twice as long...so it all works out for me and my babies.
Then again I also have northern breed dogs who need a high protein, high fat diet, which I can actually get with the Timber Wolf.

Whats with the watery eye thing? Layla is doing well on her Royal Canin Natural Blend Holistic. Weight is good, energy level is great. But she does have teary eyes. I didn't know that could be changed with food.
umm....i'm a sheep now, because i'm not following you, and feeding my dogs that brand of food? well then bahhhhhhhhhhhh! And i'm sorry, did i ever say my animals weren't worth it??? My dogs, all my animals, mean the world to me. But i don't know of any store in my area that sells that food. And i did look at the site and read about the food, but don't EVER imply that my animals aren't worth it to me, again. I've been researching and looking for differnt foods for a little bit now. and also, don't imply that i'm a sheep because i won't feed my dogs what your feeding. when you read my first post....(doubting that you actually did....since you said if i had small dogs) you would have seen that i was asking about a particular brand of food....not what kind you feed....but about that one specific kind. thank you though for brining attention to that food...it does look like it is very good. but instead of nagging saying how you should't bother answering this post.......next time just dont answer if you can't offer any info on what the poster is looking for
I did read you first post. I mentioned small dogs because other people read threads too. Didn't mean to offend, just thought I'd bring up another option that most people don't even realize is there. As for my statement about my animals being worth twenty minutes of reading....well.. it got your attention didn't it?
P.S. just going from what I've read here..Nutro is the new fad food...nothing more.

actually it didn't get my attention and cause me to read the site.....it just irritated me, and i had already looked at the site before that. whether or not it's the new fad food, does't mean crap to me. if everyone here started feeding iams, i sure as heck wouldn't follow along and feed that. i'm feeding what i've found, and what i right now like.....so i'm not being a sheep as you so rudly put it earlier!
Yeah, I have no intention of giving them less food. I give 3/4 of a qt. sauce pan as their main meal, a bit more if they are growing, like Kitty (1yr.) They seem satisfied after dinner. Nothing better than a happy Lab.
My vet told me that schnauzers are prone to pancreittis(sp.) I feed them pro-plan, nat. choice and authority. My vet recommends Iams (dry). They will not eat it. I leave dry out all the time and feed them can at nite. Does anyone have any suggestions espically if you have schnauzers?
We fed our dogs Innova for a few years and my poodle had watery eyes nearly the whole time. I always thought because it was good, it could not be the cause. I changed them to natural balance(dick Van Pattens brand) sorry if I butchered the brand, but I know its by Dicky boy. LOL She no longer has watery eyes. Chicken soup for pups is so similar too, as the innova. My pup was on a mixture of Eukanuba and C.S. now on straight C.S. But she is gasy. Also has watery eyes. Is it a big problem swithcing her over after being on one food for only the past two months? I know to mix the two for awhile. I want to put her on NAtures Balance for pups.
Tj is not a pain for asking this question. It's an important topic and I've read some pretty heated discussions on other posts. Natural choice is NOT a fad food. The cat food has lesser quality ingredients than the dog food. My cats eat something called Blue. No by products. I read on another post where someone had walked through a pet store and read all the ingredients on the bags and I went and did the same thing. There were about 3 bags of dog food in the entire store (petsmart) that did not have by products and fillers such as wheat and corn. One of them was Natural Choice lamb and rice puppy food. That is what I started giving my dog. Now he's eating some puppy food by authority that also has really decent ingredients. Even the canned food is good. Blue brand was another good one, but more expensive. All of my relatives are now using Natural choice puppy food as well. It seems we all got puppys at the same time. My cousing said that when he started giving it to his Maltipoo, she stopped her constant scratching and her gas subsided. It's not a fad at all, it just happens to be one of the few quality brands that are readily available in a lot of stores. The lamb and rice formulas can go right through some dogs though. That doesn't mean it's bad.
