We feed Fromm Grain Free. Made in the US, using US ingredients. Never had a recall, and they have multiple types in their Grain Free line so I can do rotation feeding.

Our 75 lb lab eats 2 1/2 cups a day, Our 45 pound mix eats 1 1/2 cups a day.

DiamondnLovey:  i feed orijens. My dogs love it and they have different varieties like fish, bison or a blend of everything. Most ingredients are wild caught or free range for the meat sources

I second Orijen. If your dog is too thin, you should consider feeding puppy food, which has a higher fat and protein content.

DiamondnLovey: I feed my dog Taste of the Wild adult dry dog food (they have several flavors).  He LOVES it and I like that it’s high protein and doesn’t have a bunch of junk in it.  He weighs about 40-45 pounds and only needs 3/4 cup 2x/day.  You can get it at higher end pet supply stores or on Amazon.  I would check with your vet before putting him on a puppy formula though.

I live in another country so I can’t get ‘taste of the wild’ but that is the brand I wanted to go with.  I have not decided on a for sure kebble yet because my resources are different here.  But, I have decided to feed her half kebble/ half raw food diet.  And my fi cooks her dinner 2 times a week.  And she has snacks in between.

We feed Fromms and have been very happy with it. I would not suggest feeding a puppy food to an adult dog, I would just increase the amount that you’re currently feeding her. My dogs are 37 and 42 lbs and they both get 1/3 cup twice a day, plus a big handful of green beans with each meal. Corgis get fat on air though, haha.

DiamondnLovey:  Go to Ren’s Pet Depot or Petsmart and get Blue Buffalo.  Or try to get an organic brand with only real meat and veg as the ingredients. 

My dog is on a local organic brand, has been since he was a puppy and we never needed to change. We’ve had dogs who have problems eating still goggle our kibble up. I think the gets 3-3.5 cups total a day. We just eye ball it now. He’s 70lbs and in good shape.

DiamondnLovey:  Our 70 pound Black Lab eats Taste of the Wild (grain-free and high protein). She has a cup for breakfast and a cup for dinner, plus deli turkey slices for treats. 🙂

We feed our dog grain free Merrick– also made in the U.S. and has a variety of flavors.  He is an extremely picky eater and he did not like blue buffalo or wellness; he would only eat about 1/2-1/3 of what he should be eating based on his weight and the amount of exercise he gets.  He was also on Newman’s own for a while and he was okay with that, but he loves all of the Merrick flavors and we liked that it was grain free.
