NutriSource Small breed

I just picked up some NutriSource Small and Medium breed dog food. I was reading on dogfoodadvisor it had 5 stars. I am wondering is this really good dog food? Because the lady at the dog boutique said it is really good and she recommends it so i got it. I am wondering what you all think about it?

It seems to be rated a high score but did you buy adult or puppy food????

And remember ti add it gradually with the old to prevent stomach upset.

Dog food adviser is a good source. 4 and 5 star food are good. Just remember that anytime you change foods to do it gradually. Mix in a little of the new food with the old food and gradually increase until you are feeding all new food.

I've never used it or heard of it so can't advise you but it sounds as if you're doing your homework.

I am no help with dog food. I feed people food. Not table scraps. What I feed people can eat. A lot of poor kids don't get what my dog eats.

The best test is to see how your dog does with the food. When we were showing rabbits, we fed a pricey and high rated food. We got to the show barn and noticed that all the rabbits were boney across the back bone. We packed up and went back home. ha. That took months to correct. You can tell by your dogs reaction to the food. Introduce it slowly, mixed with what you are currently feeding.
