Horizon Legacy – better price point. Complete raw dinners. For a complete meal, it needs meat. bone and organ.
Performatrin (Pet Value brand) - chicken is the only protein source… so, if your dog develops allergies, you can narrow down the protein source if that is causing the allergy..
Chicken Soup for the Puppy Lover's Soul – it’s a multi protein- if develops an allergy, you won’t know which protein it is allergic to.
Many stores also offer a puppy starter kit, where you can get coupons, deals, and treats and a great price!
