I was having a mooch on the costco site the other day and noticed theyve done a new food - similar price to the nomal kirkland sig - but only around 15kg a sack, I think it was called natures domain or something like that, it's supposed to be grain free, however, they don't list the ingredients online and I havent been able to get instore to check it out, would you guys be able to do a review of this food?

http://www.dogfoodadvisor.c...Here's a link to a similar review site aimed at the american market (so kirkland is much more common). From reading online it seems both this and the nature's domain give amazing trade off between quality and price. You only need to worry about grain free if grains have caused problems for your dog before.

What a snob! I've used the same brand puppy food.for my dog since February and it's been great, if the adult food is anything similar I will be very impressed, like you say you ' guess' it's no good, I would suggest keeping your opinion to yourself unless you use the product. I 'guess' your some over paid office Waller judging by your name and comments but I've never met you so how would I know!

But who would dare to feed their best friend on an extruded over processed kibble from a money making machine like Costco ? What is Egg Product? Just another protein bumping by-product I would guess. Also notice the way they have split the rice ingredients to make the food look like it is meat based...Emperors New Clothes?
Beginning to think that just the temperature of the processing should now be a consideration on a foods quality when entering the algorithm, for instance 90 degree extrusion, high temp extrusion, canned, raw, cold pressed etc ? Thoughts?

Egg product is actually egg shells, when ground up these are a great source of protein and are recommended by many vets and nutritionists when creating a homemade raw food, it's a great way of bumping up the protein without adding any extra carbs/additives/poor quality by-products. it is in a sense a protein bumping by product, but by no means a poor quality one like what you are appearing to make out. and on the rice note, they are not obligated to lay it out like this, they could just put rice but putting it in this format guarantees the customer that the product will not vary the amount of these ingredients based upon which is cheapest to access.
