I remember a while back some folks mentioned a very good dog food that they had delivered to the door step, it's not sold in stores. Does any one have any information on this?
What I am thinking of is, Life's Abundance.

This is where I used to order my Life's Abundance. Turns out my shepherd is allergic to all kinds of stuff (turkey, milk, fish, brewers yeast, ...) which is in a lot of foods. I had to switch to Nutro.
I did really like Life's Abundance and would still be using it if it would not be for food allergies.
They have a bunch of other cool things to order too.
We like science diet... For our older lab, we have to get our food from the vet. Beyond something that requires a script, I am sure you can have any other kind delivered if that is a real requirement.

I feed my dog EVO Red Meat - large bites. Absolutely no grains and Gowers in Ranson carries it along with other really nice quality dog food.

I love the Taste of Wild dog and cat dried foods (and so do the critters). No grains. Gower's carries it.

Thanks Folks, After looking around I am going to try the taste of the wild.
My Dog has just been operated on for a spleen tumor and I have dug into the dog food issue. Interesting facts about the foods we give our dogs.
Taste of the wild is a very good product with low carbs, very important to our little children!
Any advice on vitamins?

I don't give my three corgs extra vitamins...i think the food has pretty much everything. I do give them those baby carrots everyday, 'cause they like them.
And they do get treats...'cause I'm a sap.
And I imagine they get all kinds of stuff from the deer poop they love to nom on.

Other than hotdogs and string cheese while training... I do supplement with norwegian kelp. My dog is hypothyroid and on meds (looking at him you would never in a million years guess it! ha) and has a sensitive stomach.
The kelp jump starts immune systems. (It's good for people too) and great for any digestive issues. It helps the thyroid gland function properly and has anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic properties.
However, I think that as long as your dog has a good balanced diet, it shouldn't be necessary. TOTW is a great food choice!
