Infinia by purina?
We have a new store in our town thats selling Infinia dog food. while it seems like alright food, id like to know if anyone here has ever used it? the store is going to be selling it for 49.99 per 30lb bag, and if we end up being in this town any longer and TOTW DOES go up significantly in price, i was thinking of switching over if it ends up being cheaper.

A little off topic but I remember the post about TOTW prices increasing. But when you say significantly, how much do you think they'll raise???

It just took me a solid four months to find a good kibble for one dog. I would hate for $ to make me have to start this process allllll over again

i dunno bugsy, im hoping not enough to make me change lol. im just keeping my options open incase something ridiculous happens (which in my town is very likely to happen)
I found this site they are briefly discussing it: Infinia dog food, grain free - Food & Nutrition Forum
I hesitate to trust ANYTHING by Purina. I dont really have experience with the dog foods, but their horse feeds were constantly being recalled for one reason or another when I was working at a place that fed Purina. I think that there are better alternatives- I know many have mentioned that the Costco brand dog food is good for the price.
I can hardly imagine that if the price of food goes up that it will be more than a few dollars a bag. That wouldn't be enough to make me switch from something my dog is doing well on, but then I had a crazy time finding something that worked for him, too.

I'd almost be willing to give it a try if I can find it but that is too expensive IMO. When TOTW is $42.99 at TSC plus a $5 off coupon, I can't see myself paying $50 for something made by Purina.
Where does it say that TOTW prices are increasing??

Honestly I'm not comfortable with Purina. That food nearly killed one of my dogs in the past and I've known another dog to have permanent issues after getting sick off of it. I don't trust it. But that doesn't mean its a bad food I guess.
Personally I think that price is too high for anything Purina.
I certainly hope TOTW doesn't go up too much in price we just got her switched over on it and its good food and affordable. We get the 15lb bag for like $24. It lasts us atleast a month. Right in our price range. I guess if It goes up in price I'll pay it though. Its a good food and she likes it.

we dont have a costco.
our issue is TSC is well over 45mins of a drive, so if you factor in the price increase with gas spent, it ultimately cost alot more for me to buy TOTW than to go to this close store and buying this dog food is why i will consider it. yes, im being a cheap ass, but i have some life changes coming up in a couple of months, and saving money is something i need to do right now.

If you feel comfortable feeding it and your dogs do good on it that's all that matters. I would like to know how your dogs do on it if you decide to feed it.

It is made by PMI- Purina Mills Inc- not same Purina as in Purina Dog Chow, Pro Plan, etc.
Ingredients look ok to me. If it was priced reasonable, I would consider it for my fosters, but I haven't seen it sold anywhere near me.

This is made by PMI not Purina as in wal mart Purina its made by the same company that makes Exclusive which is equivilant to Diamons Naturals.
So technically purina would have a better track record actually. ;)

your better off getting the grainless foods at your local costco, pay the 50 dollar yearly fee and your good to go. dollar a pound.
