As for the BTDT testimonials, I'm a big fan of Natura products. Havoc was raised on Innova and it is the only food I've fed a working dog where I didn't feel the need to supplement. Currently I am feeding the Merrick brand, Wilderness blend in an effort to get some weight off Havoc. Bedlam was doing fine on Innova and continues to do fine on Wilderness blend, but honestly I think she's one of those dogs who would be fine on whatever (ever had one of those??) where Havoc is a dog that I can tell if I've made a diet change by his coat within a matter of a couple of weeks.
I need dog food right now and I think I will be trying the Innova EVO blend next. I'm hoping that by limiting carbs with Havoc that I will be able to get some weight off him. It's not a horrible issue, at his prime he was 97 lbs, he's 110 now, but with less muscle more fat but he was a working dog and has had some major stress on his body over the years along with a neck injury as a pup and blown disc in his back at 9, so I have a definite desire to see him trim (after all, he needs to live to be like 25, so he's really still a pup at 11
There's a number of foods some of you have listed that I haven't even heard of yet, this is excellent news to me, as little as 10 yrs ago it was almost impossible to find a chemical free, human grade food without using homemade. It's a great statement on the picture of the pet food industry that we have SO many choices now.
