Wheat makes Kal throw up. I think he's allergic. He barfs a lot.

Wheat corn and white rice are the 3 main food allergies for dogs. As long as your dog food doesn't contain these or by products, it should, key word being should, be a decent food. I feed my dogs Nature's Variety. They used to be on Evo or Innova (used to be made by same people, just different formulas) until Proctor and Gamble bought out the American company that made Innova, California Natuaral and Evo. As P&G also make cheap dog food, with those allergens in it as well as by products, I refuse to buy those foods anymore because they are produced in the same factories as the cheap a$$ stuff, meanings that you get trace amounts of the bad stuff on the good dog food. NTY. I pay alot for my dog food, but my dogs are happy and healthy and have no allergies.

Kal used to eat Innova for a long time but he's been on Solid gold for the past couple of years.

I have heard really good things about them. It's just super duper hard to find here, even at Petfood Express. I looked into it, and liked it, ended up going with Nature's Variety based on availability and a Doberman Pinscher show breeder that I know in Austrailia. Dobies are known for their skin issues LoL, and she said on NV, she had never had a problem. Love both foods though, and know they both come highly recommended.
