    Strider just started a bag of Wellness Core. He likes it all right, we'll see what it does for his health. Does anybody have any experience with both brands that would be willing to give us an idea of how both worked for their dogs and which they liked better?

    I'd like to try putting him of TOTW prairie, but sometimes he gets the poots when he eats lamb. He does so much better with high red meat content in his diet though. Bird meat just doesn't have "it" I guess. I got a sample bag but the day I mixed it into his food was the day he happened to get sick and he threw it all up (not related to the food! He and my friend's puppy got into something gross and both got sick at the same time). Anyway, I didn't get to see if he had any problems with it. The Wellness is mostly chicken and turkey, which isn't what I was hoping for him.

    We got a test bag of the EVO red meat formula, and he didn't like it. That was weird, because he likes all food, even pickles. :confused:

    Anyway, if folks out there have any more suggestions for red meat foods we could try on him, let us know. He seems to do the very best on the following proteins:

    Rabbit
    Beef
    Venison
    Bison


    I wish we had our farm. Then we would totally get a giant freezer and start raising fryer rabbits. *sigh*

    You could try Instinct Rabbit, none of my Min Pins would eat it at all, and to me and my wife, it stunk too bad to feed, but we dumped it in our Rottie's dish and he loved it.

    Our Min Pins love EVO and every other flavor of Instinct, it was just the rabbit that they hated.

    Maybe it will help.

    TOTW constipated Ella.
    She's currently on Wellness Core Ocean and doing fabulously. She digests it well, and I have had NO problems so far.:D

    That's my problem with it. TOTW is reasonably priced, in my opinion, and I've been happy with it

    well it's tough to compare the two brands because each brand has different flavors. Just because it's made by Taste of the Wild or Wellness Core, it doesn't make each flavor equal. All three Taste of the Wild flavors have different ingredients. So I think it would be more fair to compare flavors rather than brands.
