Q: Kirkland Chicken & Rice Dog Food

Does anyone know the ingredients to this dog food? This is what the breeder was feeding my puppy, but I would like to give my dog some variety. I was told staying within the same protein family as the current food is the best. Not sure how to do that though.

(Please see my journal entry under Food and Treats entitled "The Horrifying Truth About Pet Food" and go to www.trilogyonline.com for a very informative video, and/or see my previous answer relating to fiber a few questions before yours). If you are feeding a high quality, all natural food, your animal should not have any stomach upset problems when changing protein. When animals get diarrhea from food it is because of the grain in the food, which carnivores such as dogs and cats have problems digesting because they don't have the necessary enzymes. They are not meant to eat grain, or any of the other things that are in commercial pet foods.

We us Kirkland Chicken & Rice but mix it with the dry and only use it as a treat.
Kirkland Chicken & Rice
Minimum 9 % Crude Protein
Minimum 6 % Crude Fat
Maximum 1 % Crude Fiber

When we purchase food such as this, chicken is the first ingredient and it is made from natural products.
