      We used to use the Coastal Catch. The dogs loved it. Ultimately though, the fat content was too low and Maverick kept dropping weight despite us giving him about 5 cups per day total. It is also fairly expensive. I have not used Victor.

      Better is relative to the dog. My girl Sophie (almost 6) has been on a rotation of Fromm, Petkind and Nulo for almost 5 years and she's done very well on these foods. Brooks, my 17 month old was also on the same rotation as Sophie, but he had a continuous issue of soft, loose poo's. I talked with his breeder who has used Eukanuba Performance 30/20 with her adults for a long time, and after speaking with her, I put Brooks on that food. Within a month his poo's were much better, and he still has more than enough energy, and his coat looks great.

      It's not a matter of find what is the best food. It's a matter of finding what food is best for that particular dog. If your dog is doing well on the current food, don't mess with it.

      Why do you rotate through those 3 foods?

      I have no scientific reason for doing this. We had a discussion about rotating foods/protiens on this board a few years ago, before it crashed about 3 years ago. One of the main reasons is variety. I know I wouldn't want to eat the same food every single day, so I figure it's got to be the same for some dogs. You can get a lot of good info, pro and con with a google search.

      As to the brands I use, I've had very good success with these foods. Sophie has perfect poo's, shed's very little, and has good energy.

      I will say this, while rotating has worked well for Sophie, it did not work well for Brooks. He had issues with very soft/sometimes loose poo's on the food Sophie was eating. I asked his breeder (windycanyon) what she recommended, and I switched Brooks to Eukanuba Performance 30/20. I made the switch about 5 months ago, and Brooks has done much better on this food.

      I switched mine to Victor Yukon River a couple of months ago and have been very pleased. I was having an issue with one dog that has not recurred and the other is also doing well on it. They both look good, are maintaining weight, and love it. I was already using Victor, just a different formulation. I have had mine on Victor most of their lives.
