we recently adopted a dog from the shelter and this is what they fed the dogs there (purina donates free food to them). We appreciated that gesture so much that we stuck with this brand and really like it (well, our dog really likes it)

Purina is one of the poorest dog food options out there. Their food gave my dog countless stomach issues to the point where he would barely eat. As soon as I switched brand away from Purina, he was back to normal and I will never go back or recommend!

I own 4 dogs and had to experiment with different foods to find the most affordable food that my dogs would actually eat. I had a very mixed reaction with my dogs to Purina. It wasn’t too expensive, but my dogs didn’t always finish their food. They would go hungry and eat because they finally got hungry enough when I used Purina. It wasn’t their favorite.
