I have to agree, joe, especially as the owner of a large breed show puppy whose agreement with the breeder specifies ONLY ProPlan Focus Large Breed Puppy be fed because of the amount of research Purina has done especially on growth issues and joint problem. Not to mention that almost EVERY SINGLE ONE of my breed’s show dogs eat it and thrive. There is an awful lot of money being made by companies who do not have the years and years of research and investment in the science that Purina does. Is it the perfect food for everyone? Of course not. But it isn’t junk either.
