    Spprtmix CanineX

    Has anyone here tried this food? I'm considering giving it a go. Would like feedback, though I know results may vary.

    Looks like a new formula line from Midwestern Pet Foods. Makers of Earthborn, Pro Pac and Sportmix. I have often fed their food with good results and the company has a good reputation and makes food on-house.

    Oops that's what I meant. Sportmix CanineX. Thanks for feedback. I might order a pallet, but want to get feedback if I can't maybe try it first.

    Not sure if someone else's dog(s) feedback would make the difference since each dog is individual. The chicken formula is higher protein, both are quite high fat. I'd go for the chicken over the beef since I like to stay above 30% protein. If your dogs are not usually on >20% fat, they might have some issues. I would ask for samples from the company, they have been good about samples from their other lines and especially if you mention a pallet order.....

    I understand whay you're saying, about different dogs being different. I'm just wanting to get a general idea. My dogs haven't previously had issues with Pro Pac or Sportmix, so that's a plus. Though different foods still play a role in the amount of muscle tone, amount they need to eat and stool size and type. I suppose those are only things I can learn by feeding it. Generally samples are small bags. Sometimes can wing a deal for a regular size bag or a bunch of samples, but I feel to get a real idea I'd need 2-4 bags as want to see results for all the dogs.

    Nutrisource Super Performance (32/21) is kibble most do great on, probably my favorite kibble, but if I can save money on something that works as well I will.
    I do rotate on some other feeds and try different foods Native 4 (35/25, I liked this but at more expensive than nutrisource, not something I get often), TOTW High Prairie or Wetlands (they are kind of expensive too imo), Evolve beef, chicken or turkey (haven't been impressed), America Journey I tried because they had a deal on it for 1st order, I got some bags of Purina beyond grain free beef on a really good deal but didn't feed it long and don't think it is all that great, Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete is another I've fed often, no real complaints. I use Wysong Epigen which is like 60% protein and 15% fat at night when feeding raw in day or if they are being worked and given different kibble in day then 1/4 cup wysong at night.

    So the majority of the time they are on at least 20% protein and 30% fat. The ingredients look good. Similar to nutrisource minus the rice.

    If you are looking to order by the pallet rather than retail and if you aren't looking to go grain-free, consider Inukshuk maybe. https://corey.ca/inukshuk

    Might be on the higher end of your price range, but I am super happy with the performance foods from Victor. Retail pricing at about $50 for 40 lbs bags puts it about $10/bag higher than Diamond Naturals Extreme Athlete but (just IMO) I think its a better food (and my dogs have done fine on Diamond EA before too).

    I do like what I've fed by Victor but I'm not able to get that in bulk (guess it's possible for a huge order - more than pallet), so it's costly.
