I'm going to be switching mine to Blue Buffalo this weekend. It seems to be reasonably priced, no by-products, corn, soy or wheat.

Royal canine is far too expensive for what it is. It's not even that good of a food really :(

I get my food from petflow, they carry all the best foods! But if you live outside of the USA you may not have that option.

I feed Fromm puppy or Fromm pork & peas, and Fromm beef frittata. It's an awesome food. GO is good, Natures Logic, Natures Variety... Also good. Acana too. Check out the recommended dog foods article on the home page :2thumbs:

Sorry [MENTION=199]Barbarat[/MENTION]! I just saw your message post. Jax will be 5 months on Sunday. After a few days of the Blue Buffalo he didn't seem to like it anymore. I got some samples of food from a pet store and I tried out Fromm Pork & Peas and Fromm Beef Frittata and he really liked both so I bought some. The Fromm Four Star products are supposed to be for all life stages but I was at the vet yesterday and was told that is not necessarily true and that I should put Jax on a puppy specific food until he is 9 - 12 months. I know Fromm does have a puppy food so I might try that out. The vet also said that if a dog has no grain allergies, there is no reason to go on a no grain diet.

I agree with your vet, if no allergy signs grain is okay just not corn or wheat. Most kibble allergy problems come from by products.

At 5 months its okay to switch, their biggest growth spurt is from 2-4 months but either way should be fine. Fromm puppy has a bit more fat content while the four star is more lean. If you go with the puppy formula you may want to change if he starts to get chubby. ;)
