Its made here in CA, where we are-- ingredients look comparable to the Solid Gold Wolf King/Cub formula my dogs were on-- any one heard of this brand and company?
(Not the grain free formula)......

I am more for the grain free varieties (seeing as my dogs do better on grain free) however, aside from it being a bit grain heavy (I like to see at least two or three meats listed before the grain) it looks to be a decent enough food..

Finally! Someone responded thankyou RGP! I actually found a bit of contreversy around the company and found out that they are a bit inconsistent in quality and are actually out of Texas (the distributor in CA is what is on the package)-- so have decided to stick with Solid Gold (I have used them for 20 years now and both my Boxers made it to ages 12 and 13 -- the 13 yr old is going strong...) so will put them and the puppy (Bernese Mt dog) on the Millenium (beef) formulation while I wait and see if my preferred Wolf King (Bison) formula gets back into production-- I dont have a problem with grains- I mix the 13 yr old dogs' food with cottage cheese, beef, and rice b/c she is missing some teeth and it helps her to eat the dry ( I feel the dry makes up for any vitamins missing).....They all get this mixture actually....
I guess the lesson is stay with what works..... I am using up the bag of Great Life for their AM snack no problems so far....

Well Great Life buffalo ended up on the recall list just now April13th, 2013 (was browsing on dogfoodadvisor.com for something else and just noticed that)... Whats weird they arent admitting anything wrong with the food, just "withholding it from consumers"...
I think something is wrong with it-- if you google it, senior dogs as well as those with impaired renal function have a hard time with the food-- our senior dog did start drinking and drinking and drinking water copiously after it started being mixed into our reg food, we had to stop using it (the young dogs were fine, but I figured that something was off and didnt want their young bodies to have to work overtime)-- Just a warning to everyone....
