any thoughts? i see that the venision variety comes with oats though..

What kind of dog is it? Any allergies? Are you just looking at those brands? Wellness CORE is another good brand that I'm considering switching to.

I haven't heard of Addiction, but it looks good from what you have posted.

The ingredients are really unusual compared to all other grain free foods that I've seen. It doesn't look that balanced to me, but I'm not an expert.

I had good results from Before Grain, Taste of the Wild and Orijen. Honestly though I haven't noticed any differences in the results of those foods. I'm not comfortable with the high ash% in EVO.

she has a pure bred lab.. they have been messing wit itchy skin, and painful ears forever now
perscription bathes 2 x a week and an allergy medicine.. however they haven't figured out his trigger...her vet has had her switch food after food, but hasn't had her switch to a grain free yet.. had her switch to wellness 5 whitfish (hes had the runs non stop)

I told her i thought it was weird she hasn't done grain free. lately she has been boiling rice and white meat and adding it in no avail.. I feed raw and don't deal with allergys so I tried to move her that direction. shes not sure shes ready for that.. so right now i am trying to get her set up on a grain free to try.. im almost positive his skin issues will dissapear.. Wellness 5 still has quite a bit of grain in it

The reasons i was mostly looking at these brands are they are found in our area without having to order in.

Orijens and EVO are the only 2 I have priced, but her dog isn't excessivly active and im a bit worried 42% protien will be a bit too much for him..
Plus one of the store owners said it blew her dogs coats out.. (not sure i totally understand this as she is an advocate for raw but doesn't feed it and raw is like all protien)

So i was more looking into Merricks b4 grain, TOTW.. i was going to do instinct too but dog food analysis doesn't like the chicken fat that much (still 6 stars though) says that it can increase the chance of bloat in large dogs.. and her dog weighs around 80 lbs...
