Anyone else feeding Costco's Kirkland Signature Nature Domain Salmon Meal/Sweet Potato?

I'm surprised it hasn't been discussed much online. Particularly in Canada where dog food prices are often double what they are in the US, this seems to be the best value going at $45 for 35lbs.

I'd like to consider kirkland but I'm not sure how they stack up against the other brands, quality wise. Any advice? Any issues with feeding the kirkland?

Well there's no sick fadez left to be copped now that the regimen cannot be admired in all its glory
RIP sick fadez.

We adopted an adult Rottie mix and been feeding her the salmon/sweet potato for almost 6 months, not positive what she was on prior to the shelter (they fed some grain-based Hill's Science stuff). Hasn't had any health issues to speak of, but did have a fairly dull colored coat and dry/dandruff skin. With brushing and natural conditioners her skin and coat is really soft and shiny now.

She has great energy now, but hard to attribute this to food given she was quite overweight and feeding/diet/exercise history is unknown.
Also a super picky eater oddly, doesn't like a lot of treats, etc. so we were happy she liked the Kirkland food (Costco's return policy is great if we had to return it..but prefer not to exploit it either).

It's reviewed on Dog Food Advisor and given a 3.5, so mid-tier by their rankings. I was surprised it's not higher, the company who makes it (Diamond Pet Foods) also makes Taste of the Wild which is really highly rated. Comparing the ingredients list they're very, very similar.

Thank you for adopting and giving your girl a great home.

Also thanks for the feedback on the food. I'll look into it.
