I was wondering if anybody has tried Dimond dog food. I took some others advice an bought some Chicken Soup an my dogs would no touch it for nothing so that brand is out of the question. I seen Dimond in there I know of a breeder around my area feeds it , wondering if it is better then Science Diet like I have fed for quite sometime. I don't have allot to choose from in my area, closet town is like 50 miles so I do have to buy in large quantities when I do.

Well, I went to their web site and at first was impressed. It was talking about the fact that it was a premium food, etc. So, I looked at the ingredients... here they are: http://www.diamondpetfood.com/

Ingredients
Chicken by-product meal, whole grain ground corn, wheat flour, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), brewers rice, beet pulp, fish meal, egg product, flaxseed, natural chicken flavor, brewers dried yeast, potassium chloride, salt, choline chloride, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate, manganese proteinate, manganese oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, menadione dimethylpyrimidinol bisulfite (source of vitamin K activity), riboflavin, vitamin D supplement, folic acid.


Doesn't look like "premium" to me.... by-products as the 1st ingredient, corn as the 2nd ingredient (meaning it has tons of corn in it), and lots of other good things are missing.... It may be better than Science Diet but there are so many brands out there that beat this......

Peanut is the pickiest dog I've ever met and right now he is doing great on Artemis Small breed mixed with a little bit of Merrick canned food.
artemis link
Merrick

Also the last time I was at the store, a Merrick person was there and I got a free sample bag of one of their kibbles and it has the regular kibbles, dried chicken bits, dried peas, carrot and potatoes too. There are a lot of Merrick flavors, so if your dogs are picky it may be hard to find the right one. Peanut and Tic are eating the canned Turducken and they love it.
