Has anyone used Tractor Supply’s 4health dog food?

I currently feed my dogs NutriSource, which they do amazingly well on. However, I have to drive quite a ways to get the NutriSource brand. The Tractor Supply in my town is now carrying their brand 4Health dog food. It seem comparable to the Nutrisource, however I am concerned about possible recalls, if it’s made in the states, how well the food is made. Anyone use this current brand? I am trying to contact the company but haven’t heard back yet. Thanks guys!

    4Health info below…along with a lot of other great dog food choices:

    I have researched this topic in depth since my poor dog died of kidney failure due to poor quality dog food!! (this is the only reason I answer these questions … to try and save a dogs life or at least to not let him/her suffer because of bad food)

    Fromm Dog Food is Great for dogs and cats …http://www.frommfamily.com/ $42- $45 per 30 lb bag
    - NO fillers….some good quality grains….NO corn….gluten or by-products or wheat.
    - NO BHT, BHA OR ETHOXYQUINNO artificial colors or flavors!!!
    - ALL human grade food….fruits…veggies and probiotics!! WHOLE fruits and veggies!!!! Just like the kind we get at our grocery stores!
    - MEATS ARE DEBONED BY HAND!!!! NOT BY A MACHINE

    Check it out, you won’t regret it ! FROMM 4 STAR product line is the best!!!!!!! FROMM is a 100% holistic dog food. FROMM also has a grain-free option called surf & turf
    All meats, fish, fruits and veggies are from local vendors delivered as needed to maintain freshness.

    When researching dog food always check the FDA’s Dog Food Recall website to get the most recent information on dog food.

    TOTW – http://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/ … has a high protein content (not recommended for non athletic dogs) Some TOTW choices have lesser amounts of protein.
    Taste of the Wild contains Ethoxyquin which is a toxic fish preservative. (TOTW says that the cooking process kills all of it but it scared me away from their product)
    around $42 for a 30 lb bag …. its the cheapest 6 star food ..

    Remember : You get what you pay for. Keep in mind the top quality foods cost more but you feed less because there are no fillers or
    unwanted ingredients. So in the long run you will be saving money with food and vet bills because your dog/cat will be healthier.

    http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/ lots of great dog food choices on this site !! (keep in mind this site rates on high protein and grain free foods)

    Here are the best of the best: Fromm, Blue Buffalo, Canidae, Halo, Holistic Blend, Newmans Own Organics, Wellness,
    (all the above mentioned foods have " ALL LIFE STAGES" formulas)

    Orijen and Wellness are great but it is $60 – $80 for a 30 lb bag… high protein as well ..not good for non athletic dogs Orijen is WAY too high in protein for a non working/non-agility dog ..

    Fromm Is what my puppy gets, it has a lower protein % and great ingredients! 5 outta 6 stars due to lower protein (but most dogs should not have high protein levels …. It makes their kidneys work overtime for no reason). You can get it online and if you go to the website you can find stores near you .. they won’t be at Walmarts and the like… they are in feed stores .. Agway..tractor supply stores etc.

    IF your dog is not going to be a hard working/agility dog all this high protein can do more harm than good in the long run… you wont notice it now but it can take its toll on a dogs kidneys as it ages.

    there is also a brand called 4health at the tractor supply store.. it is only $30 for a 35 lb bag.. and it seems to be of good quality. (not as good as the foods mentioned above but it good for the price if you are on a tight budget.)
    It is very close in ingredients to the more expensive brands. Check out the ingredients for yourself… no corn, wheat or soy. A Very good choice if you can’t afford Fromm, Wellness, BB, TOTW, etc…etc.
    Also if you go to http://www.tractorsupply.com you can get a printable $5 off coupon!!
    (they have Blue Buffalo, TOTW and 4Health)

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU AND YOUR FURRY FRIENDS!!!

    I use this brand of dog food and I am a dog breeder. I only look for good dog food that is cheap in price and 4 Health dog food is pretty good. My dogs like it and I have a few picky eaters. Just make sure to slowly change your dogs over to the new food so they won’t get digestion issues…it won;t be prety trust me.
