Wellness releases coupons every month for $5 off a bag.
All you have to do is sign up for their e-newsletter on their website. The coupon comes right in the newsletter! :)

I second all of the recommendations for wellness. My dogs are on prescription food from the vet, for some reason known only to my mom. But wellness is great. They have lots of grain free options in both wet and dry forms and the wellness core food is pretty high in protein. It was an absolute life saver when I wanted to a grain free diet with a lot of wet food. He hates wet food and for the longest time I couldn't find any good grain free dry foods and then I stumbled on wellness core. I thought I'd try it to supplement his wet food and he loved it. Still didn't like the wet food, but mixing it with the dry made it more palatable.

While I haven't personally used their dog food, I'm sure it's just as good quality as the cat food. The only thing to watch out for is their recommended portions. When I was feeding my cat the recommended amount for a 12 pound cat he just kept gaining weight so I had to cut back a bit. It definitely depends on the animal's activity level, but I'd just watch your dog's weight for a bit to make sure that their recommended portion is working well for you.

Yhanks for the advice, Anges. Is it best to go with a grain free food right off the bat for a puppy?

I have no issues getting fish supplies from there but after the whole incident with organ failures causes by contiminated chinese made dog food...not gonna feed it to him.

Really? That sucks! The best food a grocery store would carry is PURINA one beyond- no corn and no wheat. :(

my dog that i had growing up at kibbles and bits but its not healthy for your dog it has by-products which isn't healthy for your dog or cat. I am sorry but veterinarian should know better. I recommend blue or nutro because they have exactly what a dog and cat need. I was going to work for both companies as a sales rep and i read up on each product. any food that has by-products (which is the intestines of an animal which is hard to swallow. You want a food that is rich in chicken meal, fish meal (cat), vegetable meal and so forth. Read the labels its very important!

I agree! Except fish based food is not good for cats. Its not reccomended to feed more than 1 meal containing fish more than once a week.

anything other than Iams, they abuse animals.

If I wanted to spoil a dog, I'd feed it whole foods- cheaper and WAY more healthy, even if it is a lot of work.
Healthy Homemade Dog Food Recipes | How To Make Your Own Dog Food | Raw Dog Food is just one of the many sites.
