Wow, makes me happy to not be feeding Bob that crap! My vet wanted us to change Bob's kibble from the grain free stuff he'd been on to Eukanuba, Science Diet or Purina #1 with grain in it. They said studies were finding a correlation between grain free dog food and canine cardio myopathy. My partners dog died from that a couple years ago at the age of six. Bob's on new chow. RAY

Last fall my dog developed a cough, so I brought him in to the vet. They took chest x-rays and determined that he had bronchitis. They also noticed his heart was in larged. The diagnosis was dilated cardiomyopathy. The vet ask me what kind of food I was feeding my dog. I said Blue Buffalo wilderness grain free. She told me to stop feeding him that food and to go back to more traditional foods like Iams, science diet, royal cannin, but no grain free food. My vet wanted to see him back in 3 months. I also had another vet confirm the diagnosis. Well, with my fingers crossed I brought him in for his checkup, and am pleased to say his myocardial dilation in back in the normal range.

Wow, that's great to hear, you lucked out! All we can do is look out for them as best we can, they don't ask for much. RAY

I've never seen it on any "Pet food recall" list....
The ingredients look good to me....
They have several mixes for all ages of dogs... I live 115 miles from the nearest Costco and it's delivered to my house.... It's about $1 a pound... $40 for a 40# bag give or take... I've had 4H folks tell me it's a very highly rated food... That's when I started buying it..

Thanks daveomak, I looked it up and pet food advisors give it their highest rating, also a lot of other good reviews.
