Tuesday’s Tip Jar – Reevaluating

August 4, 2009 at 9:54 pm 2 comments


Our puppy is now over 1 year old. I still call him a puppy because he still acts like one. We’ve been feeding him Iams dog food, since that was one of the recommended brands from our vet. It seems that more recently that he doesn’t really like his food as much as he used to. Whenever we visit my parents house, we take our dog and he just about always eats all of the dog food they have out, which is the Kirkland brand. Even though we have not weighed Sebastian recently, we don’t think he’s gained much weight for several months. He obviously isn’t growing like he did during his first year, but we think he should be gaining more weight than he has been.

My husband started researching dog food online, to see how Iams compared to other brands and what other brands are available for a large breed. I think he first checked into Kirkland, which we know he likes, but whenever we have been to Costco, we have checked and they do not carry a large breed dog food, which think is important to get for our dog. Kirkland brand is actually made by Diamond. After further research, Diamond is rated higher than Iams and a local animal store carries a large breed Diamond naturals dog food, and it’s over $10 cheaper per bag.

We were very excited to find a dog food that sounds healthier for our dog, as well as cheaper, and we are able to support a locally owned business. It was definitely worth my husbands time to research this information out. Perhaps every once in a while you might want to research various products, just to see if you can get something better for cheaper, and maybe even local!
