    Petco carries a ton of different dog food brands – some are great and many more are terrible (and a lot of them are just mediocre), so it is entirely possible to use your discount and still get really good dog food – please just do a little bit of research and look at the ingredient lists to figure out which foods are the highest quality and will suit your dog’s lifestyle best. I like to look at dogfoodanalysis.com to get an idea of quality.

    The best brands at Petco (in my opinion) are: Wellness, Solid Gold, Natural Balance, Blue Buffalo, and Castor & Pollux

    Of these, I think that Wellness Super5mix is the most similar to Innova (regular adult Innova, that is – which is what I feed to my two dogs).

    Iams and Purina (including Purina ONE and Pro Plan) are really low quality brands. They are very well-advertised, which is often misleading.

    Try making natural homemade dog food yourself. It takes little time to prepare and then you will know exactly what it contains.

    Once you start making your own dog food, you will not go back to the commercially processed variety.

    Hope that this has helped a little.

    My dog does good on Taste of the Wild. I’m not sure if Petco sells that brand.

    Iams actually isn’t a very good food, I’m looking at several of their foods now and the first ingredient is corn or corn meal and on the other ones, corn or some form of it is high up on the ingredient list. Yuck!
    Think of it this way. Anything you can buy at a grocery store (ie walmart, Giant, Weis, or wahtever you have in your area) is goign to be like feeding your dog McDonald’s every day. Crappy food: lots of fillers which means your pet gains weight from that, plus eats more (fillers fill you up for shorter amount of time than good food) which costs you more and they put on MORE weight.. plus all the other various health reasons.

    Blue Buffalo is excellent.
    NB looks alright, but it looks like they really focus on veggies instead of meats. Dogs (and cats) are “obligate carnivores” they HAVE to have meat..

    This is a good site to give you some ideas.

    If money is an issue, I always recommend Costco’s Brand, Kirkland. It’s a decent food for the price.
    Good luck

    IAMS is horrible. I know someone that had a dog that was sick after they used it. I heard that Blue Buffalo is a really good brand, I just don’t buy it because it’s really expensive. I use Natural Balance and I think it’s pretty good.

    Blue Buffalo is a good brand, Blue Wilderness is their best product. IAMS is crap. Natural Balance is ok but much lower quality than Innova.

    Personally I prefer Blue Buffalo and Nutra Ultra but any high quality that works on your dog is the right one. People that waste money thinking that they are getting more by paying less aren’t always correct. They are paying for useless fillers that can’t be digested. You get fully digestable foods when your go to a high end dog food free of by products and fillers….more digestion and less waste (inside and out)

    IAMS is a great brand.
