I was wondering if this food is any good? I have been using Natural Balance & Taste of the Wild. Does this even compare to the quality?

i would say yes! it does in my opinion. it's made by diamond, the same manufacturer of taste of the wild. and honestly i feel it's better quality than some of the natural balance formulas.

they also recently came out with a grain free formula called natures domain that is basically the same thing as the pacific stream taste of the wild.

it's been our go to food when money gets tight. my dogs have always done pretty well on it, and you can't beat the price.

Not trying to promote anything, but I've found the comparisons on BestDryDogFood.ORG to be unbiased and good. They also link their findings to Amazon for user reviews and such. I also find that buying dog food (it's expensive! Let's not kid ourselves) is cheaper on amazon than on Costco. Look on the website I provided and click around.. Lots of good information and may sway you one way or the other..

Hope I could help. Tracy dog walk

I wouldn't say that Kirkland is "premium" quality like ToTW or Orijen, but they are a good quality kibble for a budget.

Kirkland is basically about the same as Diamond Naturals. I wouldn't say it's as good as Taste of the Wild or Natural Balance. It is still about the best you can buy for its price though. It's a good option if you're on a tight budget.

Just looking at the ingredients, I would say that Kirkland is a poor quality food with little meat and lots of filler. Natural Balance is a good quality food (although with filler) and so is Taste of the Wild (althought with some poor quality ingredients).

Just went to Costco last night and I was shocked at the price hike their food took. I guess they've figured out people will pay more for dog food, so they'll charge more?

It's gone up $10 a bag here.shock

My sister feeds the Nature's Domain (also at Costco) to her show dogs and they have awesome coats, better than they were on TOTW. For the price I think Kirkland is an excellent food, I like that it has meat as the first 2 ingredients.

Costco carries grain-free dog (and now cat) dry, but it is seafood based...

Great price though, first ingredient is a "meal" type, so comparable in quality to Canidae, CA Natural, not the highest end grain-free foods like Evo, Nature's Variety Instinct, etc which has meat as the first ingredient.
