Anyone ever fed Member's Mark Exceed (Chicken and Rice) food to their dogs? We've been talking with Eli's breeder (We didnt buy him from her, fyi...) and she said his other siblings have filled out more.. and we're suspecting the people who had him before didnt care for him properly.. so we've been trying to put some weight on him. He was barely 40 lbs when we got him at 5.5 months. We could see his ribs! He's now 57.5 lbs at 8 months. (About 20 lbs weight gain total so far.) He was eating Purina Puppy Chow when we got him...
So anyways.. His breeder said to look for a high protein food - with meat as the first ingredient- and supplement it with cottage cheese to get him to gain some weight quicker. So Ive been looking around.. cant really spend a whole lot of money on dog food right now.. Seemed like a good deal.. 44 lbs for $22.
Came across this Member's Mark Exceed at Sams a couple weeks ago.. Has the highest protein Ive seen so far..
Link to the info page at Sams: here.This food was specifically developed as a high-protein formula to keep active, hardworking or hunting dogs in top form. Its high quality formulation with real chicken packs 30% protein and 20% fat into each healthful serving. That helps give your active dog the lean muscle mass, energy and endurance he needs for top performance.
He seems to like it.. eats it straight from my hand.. which he's never done before (See other threads about him being a picky eater...). So I figure its good. Its real chicken.. no byproducts...
Was just looking for some input.. who makes it.. anyone have any info on it? And does anyone see a problem with feeding him food that isnt "puppy" formulated?
