Has anyone ever heard of or used this product?  Not sure how it stacks up against the other foods out there.

I'm not impressed by it, mostly because of the corn.

Personally I would never feed my dogs anything that contained corn- it's just an undigestable filler.

I was just reading the ingredients and corn wasn't listed. Did they change the formula? However, it does still have beet pulp and wheat gluten in it. I'll stick to Canidae.

Yes within the past year they removed the corn.   However left the other yucky stuff in it.  To me IMO its over priced for the quality and you can save about 5 bucks per bag by switching to Canidae or Chix Soup.

Corn appears to be no longer on the list, however they list rice and brown rice as the second and third ingredients. There is also wheat gluten and oatmeal. Seems like a lot of grains to me.

Rosie - brindle pitbull/lab 13 months - 40 lbs
Stinky - white/brown irish wolfhound X 13 yrs - 60 lbs

here it is

tainted rice...
affects Royal Canin, Natural Balance and most likely several other brands. It's not related to the Menu Foods recalls...this is a whole new deal. I have a feeling a brand new list will come out soon.

I'll post more when I find out more details.
Winston - brindle boxer/bullmastiff 20 mths - 80 lbs
Rosie - brindle pitbull/lab 13 months - 40 lbs
Stinky - white/brown irish wolfhound X 13 yrs - 60 lbs
