I switched my Boxer to this formula on the advice of my veterinary friends, Boxer breeders, and Purina's veterinary nutrition research team. I know of several incidences of fatalities due to taurine deficiencies linked to grain-free diets, with emphasis on lamb as the main protein source. This was exactly the diet that my dog had been on, and he was doing just fine; fit, healthy, great coat, etc. However, why tempt fate, when Purina has done, and continues to do extensive research on canine nutrition? I was worried about palatability, but my four-year-old Boxer loves Purina Pro Plan Focus Adult Large Breed! The cost is comparable to other quality foods, and I'm feeding less with better nutrition. (Plus, less in, less out!) Olaf has a gorgeous coat and skin, no gastrointestinal issues or gas, and I'm relieved to be able to trust in Purina.
I feed this to all of my Irish Wolfhounds after starting off with ProPlan Large Breed Puppy. They all eat it readily, and maintain a great weight and haircoat.
We have been with purina for over 30 years, and never have me been disappointed. We have raised 29 guide dogs, 4 k-9 dogs, and numerous family dogs all on purina, the last 20 years on purina pro plan, there is no better food for your canines.
