    Default Taste of Wild vs. Blue Buffalo

    Hi , I recently switched my dogs from Nutro (yes, I never knew how bad a food this was till this forum) to Taste of the Wild Venison. I gradually switched over and now after 5 days of only TOW my 2 Cockers have very bad gas and the craps. At my local tractor supply they only carry the TOW and Blue Buffalo so I am trying to stick to these 2 so I do not have to travel far for their food. Should I try the blue or just give them a chance to adjust? Thanks for any advice,Pam

    I would give it longer than 5 days. When I first switched my GSH Pointer over to a grain free food she had gas too. She also is eating the TOTW bison formula and is doing wonderful on it.

    Did you do the switch gradually? Sometimes if you switch foods too fast it can cause some upset in some dogs.

    Also, be sure you aren't over feeding. Feeding too much of a grain free food can cause problems such as runny stool. For comparison, Lucky my 48 lb. GSH Pointer eats about 3/4 of a cup two times a day with two spoonfulls of canned mixed in.

    I believe Blue Buffalo does have a Grain free line. Can't imagine spending that kind of money on a grain free food that doesn't say Evo, Acana or Orijen on the label...but I'm sure its decent.

    not just made by them (such as Canidae, solid gold, etc...TOTW is actually a Diamon owned line)

    to the OP, id agree that since you already started the TOTW id give it a while longer.

    if you were comparing TOTW with Blue Buffalo's grainless food (Wilderness) id definitely favor the Wilderness.

    Taste of the Wild Pet Foods - Per Diamond Pet Food (manufacturer) “all fish meal, ocean fish meal, and salmon meal ingredients are preserved with ethoxyquin.”

    Risk Ingredients Not Listed on Pet Food Labels


    I would go with Blue Buffalo.
