Hello all,
I'm new to the forum and have found such great information. After reading some threads about the "junk" food out there such as Iams (which is what my pup is on now) I have been desperately trying to find a much better quality food. Has anyone used Kirkland Signature Chicken, Rice, and Vegetables? I heard it was top rated but wanted to get opinions with all you. The ingredients and such are listed below. I don't mean to stir up a debate like the ones I have read on the boards. I just want my pup to be healthy. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Also, I've been searching for articles about what basic nutrients are required in a dog diet but have had no luck. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great

Lamb, Lamb meal, whole grain brown rice, rice flour, white rice, egg product, cracked pearled barley, chicken fat (preserved witn mixed tocoperols and Vitamine E), beet pulp, potatoes, fishmeal, flaxseed, natural flavor, milet, brewers dried yest, carrots, peas, choline chloride, rosemary extract, parsley flake, dried chicory root, glucosamine hydrochloride, taurine, vitamin E suppliment, iron proteinate, copper proteninate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate, manganese proteniate, manganous oxide, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), Vitamin B12 supplement, menadione sodium bivulfite (source of vitamin K activity), riboflavin, vitamin D supplement, folic acid

Guaranteed Analysis:

Crude Protein 23% minimum
Crude Fat 14% minimum
Crude Fiber 4% maximum
Moisture 10% maximum
Zinc 200mg/kg minimum
Selenium 0.4 mg/kg minimum
Vitamin A 15000 IU/KG minimum

THANKS!

It looks pretty good to me- although I don't know of a site that says the ingrediants that dogs need, here is a site that tells you what ingrediants to look out for (http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=badingredients), so I hope this might help. I have done a little research on dog food quality and from what I have heard, Eagle Pack Holistic is (or is almost) the best dog food out there if Kirkland turns out not being good for your puppy. Good luck!!! ;)
