I agree 100% with LadyD.
I'd be really nervous of Nature's Recipe. Isn't it made by Del Monte? I prefer to stay away from those huge manufacturers personally.

I'd say rather find something much closer to the quality of TOTW if you can. Nature's Recipe also has by-products and menadione (Vit K). At least it doesn't seem to have BHA or BHT, so that's something, lol.

You can also check out this site http://www.dogfoodscoop.com/index.html. They've got a couple of great charts like what to look for and also dog food ratings. They gave NR a 1.

PS - I bet your dogs gulped it up ... Yaaay, we're getting McDonalds finally. ;)

You obviously care a lot about your babies (like me, lol). Blue Buffalo and TOTW are top quality foods.

Are you a good customer at your Pet Smart? My local pet store gets a lot of business from me, and they've offered to take back open bags if my doggie won't eat a new food. (They don't unfortunaely offer samples). Can you try this with them? Just tell them the truth that you made a mistake, and only realized after you'd opened the bag, and that you really want a top quality food. It's worth a try, don't you think?

I once bought my pup a new food ($40) which he ate for a week or so and then went totally on strike!!! But at that point, I didn't feel right about bringing a 1/3 empty bag back, lol, so I had to give it away.

Do they carry Merrick? It's also excellent. And they make all their foods at their own plant which I like the sound of.

Good luck! :)
