I did the same as HQB and Jimierminez . I wouldn’t call it cheap though . It cost about the same as the ProPlan a year ago . If it goes up much more I am going to try The Pride Orange bag . I use to feed the Black bag . The dogs looked ok , but they look a lot better now . I have used Diamond Chicken & Rice All Stages and the dogs looked good , but their poop was to loose to pick up and made a mess of the kennels .
I went from Pro Plan to Inukshuk once the prices came together. Also expensive, but feed each dog even less than I did on the Pro Plan 30/20 and they are looking great. I'm considering checking out the bulk order plan to see if I can get any more savings over Chewy autoship.
We also fed the Joy and really liked it, but our supplier went from $35 for 50lb to $55 for 40lb, I enjoy my dogs but I aint going yo pay $1.50 a lb for dry dog food, went to Black Gold $32 for 50lb and have not noticed any difference in the way the dogs look or act
