Based on my understanding, Science Diet isn't much better. I'm a member of a couple dog forums, and I've heard it being compared to cardboard/saw dust. It's basically why I don't seek nutrition advice from our vet, since I've read that most vets aren't up-to-date on nutrition and diet to begin with.

Currently i switched my doberman to a grain free salmon, sweet potato and pumpkin natures recipe dog food. However i can't find that in my town so I will be switching to the similar version salmon and sweet potato taste of the wild dog food.
My girl does amazing on the grain free, a few months ago she wasn't keeping food down and was acting out of it. Well she's been on the grain free stuff about 2 months and doing amazing. Gained some weight, coat is gorgeous and hasn't had one issue with keeping it down.

She had a very sensitive stomach and was previously on adult pedigree but her coat was fairly dull and she wouldn't gain weight even being fed 2 1/2 cups twice a day, now being fed the same amount she is much healthier looking and acting.

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]
