    Riots been on this when he was younger.. BUT I was thinking about putting him back onto it for now and switching from the EVO RM..

    hes doing well on the EVO RM, but as hes hitting his peak i'd like him to downgrade on the protein content slightly as the EVO RM is fairly high and would like something lower with a fairly even matched fat content.

    What do you guys think about this food?

    Any recomendations for a Red Meat type of diet.

    Riot can't have any wheat, corn or chicken in his diet. He also needs a 32% or higher protein content..

    any brands come to mind at all?

    Price isn't an issue at all..

    Have you considered switching to "The Honest Kitchen" dehydrated raw? You just add water and wait. All of their foods are grain free and they have non-poultry diets available. They have low protein (21%) so you would need to supplement with other raw food.

    We switched Herschel to their "Embark" diet (mostly turkey) and he is thriving on it. Somehow, his coat is even softer than it was on Canidae. His energy level seems to be about the same, but he loves it and we're going to stick with it despite the high price tag.

    Hmm.. those are great suggestions, thanks so much! :)

    I'm looking at putting him on a more even fat/protein ratio at the moment though, so something in the 30 percentile would be pefect.

    I'll have to check out all of Solid Golds line.. I never really have taken a look at what it fully offers!

    I have yet to see Orijen in our pet stores around here as well :(

    Any other suggestions would be perfect, thanks so much!

    Call Orijen and they will arrange with your local pet store to start carrying it. Showpug called them and they took care of everything! Great customer service.

    The Honest Kitchen sounds like it might work nicely for you. It almost feels like a mix between raw and home cooked. They have recipes that you can use to supplement and their nutritionists could probably help you device a plan to reach your protein/fat ratio.

    I think that's it for grain-free foods, though. I can't think of very many that don't have poultry.

    Melissa, great call. I tried that last night but their website was down!

    I was going to suggest the "Wild and Natural" formula but it is chicken based.
