brw1982 Both Sensitive Skin & Stomach (salmon & rice) and Sport 30/20 are good foods and I've fed both with good results.

My girl Tali did well on the Sensitive Skin & Stomach salmon.

Sport 30/20 was the only kibble Fiona was willing to eat in late stage DCM/CHF. She actually did very well on it, considering. Her primary vet and cardiologist both commented on how fantastic her coat looked and that she was maintaining a decent weight even toward the end.

Gretchen_Red I only feed Purina Proplan Sport 30/20 but my dogs are extremely active. I do give my dogs a digestive enzyme Powder as well. I also add a heart supplement with Taurine, and Fish oil. Good luck.

The adult formula Chicken or the Salmon are the two that I usually feed and the salmon is the most common.

Lamb based foods always seem to give my dogs horrible, noxious gas.

Some of my friends feed Proplan Sport - typically the 30/20 mix (https://www.proplan.com/dogs/product...e-3020-formula).

Rosemary That’s the one I’m feeding, as well.

MeadowCat ^^^ That's the formula I feed. Sensitive Skin and Stomach (branded under the "Focus" line). It's a salmon based formula. Not grain free. My dogs do very well on it.

melbrod This is the one I'm talking about.


Partial ingredient list:
Salmon, Barley, Ground Rice, Canola Meal, Oat Meal, Fish Meal...

It is not grain-free...any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley or another cereal grain is a grain product.

Grain-free formulations have things like sweet potatoes, peas, garbanzo beans (aka chickpeas), potatoes, lentils and tapioca (aka cassava) as their carb source.

Purina Pro Plan ; Which Formula?

I've been reading the forums regarding best kibbles for Dobies and have found that Purina Pro Plan is highly suggested for price/nutrition/Not On the Grain-Free Craze. Only problem is there's so many different formulas I'm unsure what you guys use in 2019. Could I get some recommendations? Is Grain-Free the same thing as Wheat, Soy, and Corn Free?

I see Salmon and Rice being mentioned also Sensitive Skin and Stomach, but this might be grain free? Can someone clarify for me please.
