I went to the vet to buy Louie's usual Hill's Z/D ultrahypoallergenic dog food. We were completely out. The bill for 18 pounds of it was $70. I left the bag there. An 8lb bag costs $29.

Highway robbery.

Leaving the vet, one of the assistants there suggested that I go online and buy this great dog food called Honestkitchen.com

I did, and I bought a 10 pound bag of "Force". It's all natural, dehydrated, no fillers. So far so good. He is no longer vomiting, so far no diarrhea (poops can be picked up easily)....and best yet? He loves it!
10 pounds turns into about 40 pounds of food when mixed with water to rehydrate.

Has anyone else used this?

I haven't tried the food you mentioned, but I finally got brave and tried something other than the Hill's brand that you were buying.

The vet had recommended it to cope with Hub's allergies and hot spots.

When we added Ohdee, the sticker shock doubled.

Long story, short, the nice man at a local feed store recommended "Natural Balance". I've fed my two the "lite/senior" version with great success. They look good, not allergy/hot spot issues, and a 18 lb. bag is $40, vs. the $70 of the Hlls.

Natural Balance also has an "allergy" version. Since the lite has worked for us, we've just stuck with that. My two are both 9 yrs.+, so we try to avoid the extra calories :)

I never heard of that food but it was interesting reading their website. It's great when you find a food that works for your dog. I was feeding Rusty Royal Canin Hypoallergenic at a high $$$$$! I weaned him off that and for the past year have been feeding Eagle Pack Holistic Select Duck & Oatmeal. I've been very pleased with the results.
