    ...Well, actually Diesel does. The store that I buy it from has switched owners and they are not going to order anymore. So my question is, what do you feed your dogs? What would you reccomend? He's 8 years old, so puppy chow is pretty much out of the question! [​IMG]

    We've always fed Aries Eukanuba with the extra glucosamine/chondroitin. They have a whole bunch of different blends, some geared toward specific breeds too. What did you feed before?

    What kind of dog is he? We have to feed our English Bulldog Diamond brand dog food without wheat and corn. She has such bad skin issues that once we got rid of the wheat and corn she's way better. Haven't had any skin problems since we started feeding it to her. We also started feeding our dogs raw meat. We have a butcher down the road who's very giving.

    Diesel is a pit bull mix. He was eating Nutra Source...

    Feed him anything WITHOUT corn wheat and soy in it.

    Taste of the Wild is a good one.

    I like Orijen, but I know it's harder to find.

    I can't afford any of those dog foods, so mine eat Kibbles and Bits. But, they do good on it.

    I switched my house dog, a husky mix over to Taste of the wild about a year or so ago. She needs to eat less of it so I actually end up spending less even tho a bag is more expensive. My outside dogs get that part of the time and Diamond lamb and Rice the rest of the time.

    Well, could you find another store that carries it?

    It's silly for a store to change hands and to just "stop" ordering something that is bought.
