Diamond dog food

10 posts in this topic

Anyone feed the dog Diamond????

Would like to hear opinions. As of now I'm using Purina One Puppy. But need to switch here in near future due to his age...

I've been feeding Diamond exclusively for many years. You forgot to mention what breed of puppy you have. I feed my Pointers Diamond Perfomance year round(purple bag), it is 30% protein/20% fat and that might be a little high for most retriever breeds. We switched from Purina Pro Plan because the dogs didn't seem to hold weight even in the off season. We saw big improvements by the second bag and have been using it ever since.

I use Diamond for my pointers. I use the performance during hunting season and then maintenance the rest of the year. Excellent product and price friendly also.

Diamond is a decent food. However don't get like the Maintence type foods. Lower quaility. They do offer some great foods like mentioned in an earlier reply. There are some other foods that are great too. I wouldn't stop at Diamond.

I just switched to Diamond from Eagle Pack. So far so good. I like the availability and the price. I will normally feed the maintenance and switch to premium during hunting and trial season.

Where do you guys buy Diamond at? I live in Alexandria and we have Fleet Farm, Menards, and Walmart. Is it normally carried buy Co-op's? Right now, I'm feeding my lab a half/half mixture of Sprout and Iams and she seems to be doing great.

I used to feed the performance and was happy with it until this fall. I'm not sure if my dogs have changed or the feed changed but most of my mutts were having loose stools after a training run so I switched brands. I didn't have this problem before. All in all, I think it's a decent feed but there is better available.

      Good reports guys.   We were up Wednesday to Sunday.   I second you on the weather, rain and wind got old.  Not to mention bugs were terrible.  No see ums bothered us the most.      For us luckily the fishing was great.   Limited on bows and Lakers.   Had several stellar meals too.

      Hi, I'm looking for a fresh report from the North end.  Thanks!

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?
    • Avid Angler
      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
