I was in a pet store and saw a hugh box with samples of this brand. Up until that point I used what the previous owner gave me. I rescued her from the pound and she lived for over 15yrs. when I brought this sample home she loved it and I bought her this from thaty day forward, Even when she got older I bough the senior brand! Sadly she passed away last year and we had to get another dog. we ended up wioth 3! But we now buy them the same food. I asked mt vet about this food and they said it was one of the better food for dogs. It;'s made buy purina and so far so problems.
