Personal observation on the WAG brand: bought this when amazon first introduced it. It's basically a knockoff of multi-colored (mainly red dyed) kibble. The bag received already had a rancid smell and the dogs, who are normally very happy to eat most kibble were snubbing much of it. Was glad to see when that 40# bag disappeared. We stick with higher end stuff (like Wellness, Canidae and even TOTW and Diamond Natural). Lots less red dyed puke to clean up and less stinky rear end output (gaseous and solid lol).

Didn't know they made a 40lb bag.
None of the bags I've purchased had any colored kibble, just brown.

Seems like a decent dog food to me, I'd place it at Purina One quality. Those "higher end" brands dedicate a significant amount of their overhead to marketing. I'm sure someone will bring up "dogfoodadvisor" or the like, but there is no unbiased source for reviews; even your vet is biased.

With that said, I prefer to get the premium versions of the major companies. I trust Sams & Costco foods as they negotiate higher end feed and get a significant discount, and I trust higher end Purina. To each their own; some people prefer an "organic" label or a wolf commercial...I try to employ logic and results, the latter of which have been good for my dogs.

As you said, to each their own. As for vets, there is only one pet nutrition book in vet school and that's written by Hills Science Diet. As someone who worked as a vet tech in the Dark Ages, I can tell you, when you open a bag of H's SD, it STINKS to high heaven. It's made with the 4Ds (dead, diseased, dying and deceased meats). And after cooking the whole carcasses (that's why there are sometimes chicken beaks and feet parts in the bags - found them in "high end" Purina brand bags) for 72 hours in a giant pressure cooker, the nutrients are dead. To get them back into the food, a mixture of fat, minerals and vitamins is sprayed on the extruded kibble.
While Wellness and Diamond Natural (as well as others mentioned above) are also extruded, many at least take more care to use not the whole carcass (feathers, beaks, hooves, hair, horns, etc.). And frankly, haven't seen that much advertisement for either of those brands, but for Blue Buffalo (a company that was recently fined for false advertisement claims since they too use 4D, contrary to their advertisements).

Shared one view, thank you for sharing your view. In the end, it's a matter of everyone's own wallet, preference, research and what one may be able to live with and what one may not be able to support.

I bought the puppy one about a year ago out of desperation and my dogs actually fought over it and refused to eat their (expensive) regular food instead.
My little one also got colitis trying to go back to their regular food and has been eating wag for a year now, better coat, still crazy but a happy healthy little dog. I see the coupon but I wish it was also for puppy since the kibble is smaller so both of mine can eat it.

I've bought this before and mine was brown kibble. My dogs both liked it and I didn't notice increased gas from them or any unusual smell from the food. It comes up on mine as 40% off with S&S making the #30 bag under $20 for the chicken, salmon and rice. In looking at the Wag brand without grains- beef, salmon, turkey, lamb- it is a little more, but again at 40% off, the price is $23. Although the 40% specifies the first subscribe and save order, I was able to order both with the discount. Thanks!

Diamond is great, as is Kirkland Signature.
Here is a very helpful tool to guage the quality of dog food:

https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/

And if enough people stop buying the garbage, companies will stop making the garbage. So I pass this along every chance I get.

I work as an electrician at a name brand pork processing plant.. I can tell you that our rendered material isn't controlled from any outside company as it's shipped as inedible.
Everything is cooked down, "them bones and all".. to keep it simple, there's a bunch of separating processes after being pressure cooked, most of it goes through a centrifuge, crax grinder and dryer.

If the facility is well taken care of you won't get much rot but before we installed new equipment I seen some nasty stuff go through and even took a shower in it a couple times while replacing drive motors mid processing.. that being said you can actually see the floor now..

We cook down, dead, dying, ill, injured and exhausted pigs (if they can't walk they don't get fed to humans, usda has access to cameras to ensure this, same with the barn areas) along with all scraps left over from the floor processing.. anything and everything.

We ship to several brands but I would trust our Purina as I know it's well ran and taken care of.

The point of my rant is even your fancy name brand food is made from the same rendering, they may use a different process when processing it then maybe Purina but the beginning material is pretty much the same.

Just thought I'd give some insight

Our dog had issues with expressing her glands. We tried a few dog foods, but nothing seemed to matter much. Settled on Purina one dog food and Added glandex to her meals once a day and the issue went away almost entirely.

Tried wag dog food while still using glandex and she was so gassy and the gland issue came back.

Switched back to purina one (and keeping up with glandex) and she was back to normal.

Obviously just our experience.

She liked the food, just didn't sit well with her and given her gland issues we are going to stick with purina one and glandex.

Wag is brown kibble and has been as long as I can recall. Check the review pictures on Amazon. It's not multicolor. Person in first comment has outdated info. It's a good food and has good reviews.

Second; Wag not being multi colored. We got a free sample on day 1 and it wasn't. However we don't feed it. I usually grab a bag when on sale to donate.

Keep in mind that Grain Free is still a serious issue with dogs contracting DCM. Two of our Goldens blood work was critically low in particular levels. We switched to ProPlan (I hate Purina personally) and retested 6 months later and their levels were right where they should be.

Thanks! Had the 40% coupon so 23ish $ for 30 lbs of decent food is pretty good!

I'm all about the Costco premium stuff. I used to buy Dr. TIM'S and was very happy with it but $70+ for a bag was more than I could afford this past year. Costco stuff is less than half the price and I see no difference in my dogs behavior or poo.

So, my S&S day is still almost 3 weeks away, but I just got notice that "the item below is currently unavailable" and they cancelled it. The hell?
