Discussion in 'Health & Nutritional Care' started by youngblood11781, Nov 30, 2015.

  1. Hi.I was wondering if anyone uses the diamond naturals puppy food? Calcium- 1.2% phosphorus 1.0% I ask because the large breed food has no corn. First ingredients lamb.lamb meal.white rice.barley peas garbanzo beans chicken fat egg product.fish meal.etc.. The regular puppy food starts with chicken by product meal ground corn wheat flower chicken fat it has some good ingredients after all that junk but I'm not feeding my puppy that.

    Not the best food, for sure.

    If you have a Pit Bull, you should not feed Large breed formula. They are medium sized dogs and that will do more harm than good.
     
  5. That's what I've been reading a lot.joint issues and a lot more. Any recomendations

    Take a look at dogfoodadvisor.com for unbiased food reviews. Aim for a 4-5 star food within your budget.

    I personally love diamond. I have never had any problems with it in any of my dogs. The positive things I have seen in my dogs are very healthy shiny coats. Less stinky and better breath too.My first APBT had skin problems after I changed to diamond she cleared right up. My dogs are very active they go hiking and on runs with me all year. They get tones of play with flert poles and tugs. So I feed maximum athlete. Even my rottie is on it and he is amazing looking. He has that shiny black coat. For the price I can't complain.

    Personally, I'd choose a different brand than Diamond. They've had a poor track record when it comes to recalls. Too many for my preference.
     
  11. I did read about some recalls from years ago.but have read a lot of good things in the recent years.I'm looking strongly at the diamond grain free chicken and sweet potatoe. I read normal potato can cause allergies..? So I passed on several of the varieties. I thank everyone for the advice just downloaded this forum.

    I consider 2-3 separate recalls within the last 4 years to be pretty recent. There are plenty of other similar or better brands in the same price range. You're not stuck with Diamond by any stretch.
     
  13. I actually just did a lot of reading.and really I think taste of the wild is what we are going to go with.the bison and version's first 5-6 ingredients are meat. Has a 32% protein

    That's fine. I just want to make sure you're aware that the recalls were all recent not "years ago".

    The first 3 ingredients of that specific formula are meat products. Followed by 3 starches, not meats.

  16. Yes your correct. I have allot wrote down lol. Bison lamb meal chicken meal.egg product.sweet potatoes peas,potatoes,canola, etc. The puppy formula is about the same but no chicken and 28% protein...wouldn't more protein be better for a growing pupp?

  17. The other formula dose not say adult dog so I assume it's all life stage.. It has 32%

    I would go for the lesser protein, personally. Why don't you want to feed puppy formula?
     
  19. I don't have anything against the puppy formula.I just read in a few forums (not this one) ThAt pit bulls need between 30-40% protein...is this bad information

  20. And they said that was for muscle development and growth. I don't necessarily want a tree stump of a dog.but good development is important.I've never read So much @ nutrition and dog health so this is New.
