    Now large breed senior was one of the only foods I have tried for my senior Dogo that he could eat enough to be full and loose weight. It is pricey though and right now I am trying Victor Ocean Blend which is working pretty well. Similar guarenteed analysis to the Now.
    But if I could afford it I would feed the Now.

    Casper gained weight very easily on Acana and Orijen.

    Nutrisource grain free large breed lamb was another decent food I have fed. I find the large breeds tend to have less kcal/cup. I feed them to my JRT too.

    I think I'm going to check the prices on Now around here. Thus far everyone carries Acana and Orijen like crazy here but I'm not seeing a ton of variety, but yeah I've not gone into a regular dog food store yet. LOL

    Lotus has a grain-free duck formula with only 367 k/cals per cup. The ingredient list isnt super fantastico but I really like the idea behind the food. And its not a bad ingredient list by any means.

    Or, theres the Natures Logic Lamb or Beef formulas. These arent technically grain-free....they use millet, which I usually consider perfectly acceptable even for dogs who require grain-free. Both formulas come in at around 345 k/cals per cup.

    I havent personally tried any of these foods on my dogs yet, but I will be within the next few days. I do hear many good things about them though!

    This.

    If I had to feed kibble it would be Fromm, Acana/Orijen, and Wellness CORE in that order.

    Has the states been able to get the Acana Classics line yet? Their Senior formula is incredible.

    It's one of my top sellers and dogs do soooo well on it. Sucks that the USA can't get it.
