    Default Nature's Domain dog food

    Just went to costco's today I seen they had this new dog food called Natures domain Salmon. I heard they also had a turkey one but didnt see it at costco. I also did some research on it and it said its made by diamond and is the same dog food as TOTW. I bought a bag to try it out and see how my dogs do on it. Price Tag was around 32 bucks for a 35lbs bag. Anybody else try it yet?

    No havent tried it. I would be very interested as well because I pay $45 for 30lb. bags of TOTW and 3 a months is getting rediculous haha. I did a little research and from what a I read on the analysis of each product the TOTW is a better kibble all around but for the price that Natures Domain stuff seems like a steal! Anyone else know?

    I use to feed TOTW and used either the Bison formula with the high protein content or the Salmon formula but I stop using it cause it cost too much lol. When I opened the Natures domain Salmon dog kibble today it looked and smelled very similar to the TOTW Salmon kibble.



    Found this on one dog food review site.
    I was just told over the phone by a Costco buyer that the Costco Nature*s Domain is basically the same as TOTW but that the manufacture doesn*t want to sell this product under TOTW at Costco because of their other accounts.

    I feed my dog Nature's Domain salmon formula and he does just fine! He's eating four cups to maintain weight, so I don't think I'm saving much money.

    looks pretty much the same to me except the meat content is higher in the TOTW. same basic ingredients though.... too bad i don't have a costco anywhere close to me. :-(

    If salmon meal is the first ingredient I personally wouldn't fool with it. First ingredient needs to be meat, not meal or by products in my opinion.

    Good point, the word Salmon "meal" worries me also.

    TOTW is arguably the best kibble. Natures domain like many kibbles, is great and any dog would be lucky to eat that as oppose to 98% of the commercial dog food brands that just suck. Its better for your budget and far above average dog food so I would stick with it if I were you. I have no kids, thats why I buy TOTW

    actually, meal means the dehydrated product, which is what actually goes into the kibble. fresh meat may be on the ingredient list of a food, which is great, but the ingredient list is listed pre-dehydrated volume. so, for example, if fresh meat is the first ingredient listed on the bag, and a meat meal is the second, the meat meal actually has a higher volume in the finished dehydrated kibble product than the fresh meat does. so theoretically, the fresh meat would be further down on the ingredient list than the meat meal listed in the finished kibble product. if this makes sense. meal is not bad, just means dehydrated product as opposed to whole pre-hydrated product. basically. a bit more goes into it, but that's the gist.

    Nature’s Domain Dog Food
    The Bottom Line

    When you consider the overall quality of these ingredients, Nature’s Domain Dog Food looks like an above-average kibble.

    But ingredient quality by itself cannot tell the whole story. We still need to estimate the product’s meat content before determining a final rating.

    The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 27%, a fat level of 16% and an estimated carbohydrate content of 50%.

    Both products in the line appear to contain the exact same nutrient percentages.

    Average protein. Average fat. And average carbohydrates (when compared to a typical dry dog food).

    When you consider the plant-based protein-boosting effect of the potato protein, this looks like the profile of a kibble containing only a moderate amount of meat.

    Just the same, its difficult to ignore the grain-free nature of this product as well as its lack of any serious Red Flag ingredients.

    Bottom line?

    Nature’s Domain is a grain-free kibble using a moderate amount of salmon or turkey meals as its main sources of animal protein… thus earning the brand four stars.



    Highly recommended.Taste of the Wild Dry Dog Food
    The Bottom Line

    Judging by its ingredients alone, Taste of the Wild dry dog food appears to be an above-average kibble.

    But ingredient quality by itself cannot tell the whole story. We still need to estimate the product’s meat content before determining a final rating.

    The dashboard displays a dry matter protein reading of 36%, a fat level of 20% and an estimated carbohydrate content of 36%.

    As a group, the brand features an average protein content of 32% and an average fat level of 18%. Together, these figures suggest a carbohydrate portion of 42% for the full product line.

    Above-average protein. Above-average fat. And below-average carbohydrates… when compared to a typical dry dog food.

    With no evidence of any plant-based protein concentrates, this is the profile of a kibble containing a generous amount of meat.

    Bottom line?

    Taste of the Wild dry dog food is a grain-free kibble supplying a significant amount of poultry, lamb or fish meals as its main sources of animal protein… thus earning the brand five stars.

    Enthusiastically recommended.

    Which formulas you comparing? The Salmon and the Lamb formulas of TOTW protein and fat content is very close to Nature's domain salmon and turkey formulas, even the ingredients is close like the examples I posted above with the Salmon formula comparason. Only the TOTW Bison and the Fowl formula is way higher in protein and fat making only those two formulas IMO 5 stars due to having more protein/fat content but the other two TOTW formulas like the Lamb and Salmon are only 4 stars just like the Natures domain due to not having enough protein and fat content.

    Diamond company likes to give the lower formulas too sell at costco at a discounted price and keep the higher formulas for themselves.

    Bottom line the edge does go to TOTW. BUT IMO the only two formulas worth paying more for is the Bison and the Fowl but not there Salmon or Lamb formula which is almost the same as Natures Domain Salmon or Turkey formula but cost way less, and lets not forget its still made by the same company lol.

    Anyone who ever used the TOTW Salmon formula , go out and buy the Natures domain salmon formula and you will see that the shape and smell is basically identical to TOTW.

    But who really knows as we all know how honest dog food companies really are lol. ethoxyquin free? lol.

    I went to Costco today to buy the food we have been feeding our dogs for over a year now (Pelican Bay-Grain Free) only to find out that they are now carrying Nature's Domain. It is very comparable to Pelican Bay (and TOTW) however.....this food is made/manufactured by Diamond Dog Food Co and if any of you follow the dog food recalls--Diamond is the TOP food that has always been recalled. In 2009 76 (?) dogs died after being fed bad Diamond Dog foods. So my concern is with their manufacturing techniques--and where they get their ingredients FROM...not that its not a quality food. Any other thoughts?

    It had melamine in it from china. Diamond is all some will feed and never had any problems. Sure would be a $#@! to loose a good dog because of a bag of food that you bought.

    Have used this food with my standard Dachshund for the past two months, he loves it and his skin is improving and hair more glossy and softer. He also has less "gas" - buy it at Burbank Costco, they do not carry it at the Alhambra store.

    I bought it. I have three dogs that were all on different foods for different reasons, They all love it and there have been no problems at all. THe list of ingredients is similar to other complete foods, some of which are twice the price. Well worth trying
