I guess I am in a class of my own because I will NEVER buy this food again for my dog. I have an older dachshund and I bought this at the recommendation of my vet. She was having weight problems and I really wanted to figure out a way to help her. I was told that this food is very good for dogs and after reading the ingredients list, I agreed. It is very good for dogs. It has immense nutritional values. However, these are my two biggest gripes regarding this food. My dog hated it and it made her immensely ill. I first mixed it into her regular food so not to shock her stomach and that was okay. However, as soon as I started to feed it to her by itself, she got very sick. She threw up every single time she ate this brand of food. I do not know if maybe she just has an allergy to it because it seems that everyone seems to love it. My second gripe is the price. I paid $50 (give or take a few dollars) for the big bag and I only did that because I assumed it was going to help my dog be healthier and assist with her weight loss program. That price, to me, is just over the top. I can understand the need to charge a bit more for good foods, but that price is absolutely ridiculous. My recommendation is that if you want to try this with your dog to buy the small bag first or even try to obtain a sample somehow. That way you can judge how it will affect your dog. I have since switched to a much cheaper brand and have had no issues since then.
