The Merrick worked well and I think it is a good food, but for Skippy no more rice. So we are on Pinnacle now and liking it we will keep this one in our rotation. California Naturals is so far my favorite and will be the next food we rotate him back to and use the most. It has the simplest ingredients. So as far as food goes that is the latest in our family dog news, oh and Grandma Lucy's has potatoes so that will not work either.
