I've always been under the impression that this brand is the one Vets get paid to shill but no one should actually be using.

Which do you recommend? I buy Science Diet because it's what my vet recommended for my cat, but it's so expensive! If I could find a cheaper alternative that's as good, I'd switch right away.

If you're sticking with dry food, (and I'm really on familiar with dog food, so take this with a grain of salt for cats), Acana is probably similarly proceed to your vet's Hills foods.

Acana and Orijen are both made in Alberta by Champion, and are top shelf foods. Nutrience Sub-Zero is in a similar price range as Acana and is made in BC, also a good food.

Even Costco's foods made by Diamond in the US are likely a better alternative to your current feed, and far and away the lowest cost you'll find for a reasonable dry kibble.

Origin and acana are over priced and over hyped. I find people are recommending them with very little knowledge about actual nutrition. Even vets have a handful of hours of nutritional training put on by a food rep.

Sit down and make a list about what your pets needs are and find a food that helps in that area. For example if i had a male cat i was feeding dry then i would feed a food that prevent urine crystals.

There is not one super food and SD pet food has somethings it does better. Also the hills science diet(pet store)and hills prescription Diet(vet) are two different but similar foods.

Edit: i should note that when i say people, i mean in general and not anyone in particular before a fight breaks out.

There are lots of foods that are better than others. Hills is generally known to be overpriced for the nutrition. You do want to find a food that fills the needs of your particular pet -- check out dogfoodadvisor.com for some general nutrition recommendations. It's not the gospel truth but it will point you in the right direction.

Hill is not a good brand at all!! Their main ingredients usually start brewers Rice, Corn Gluten Meal and other fillers, but pet food should have protein as their first main ingredient. Orijen, Ziwipeak, Primal are better brands to look at.

Go raw. Do a google search on benefits of feeding raw food to dogs. Also watch movie called Pet Fooled.

You sir, shouldn't have a pet if you're not willing to invest good money into what you're feeding it
