Life's Abundance vs. Wellness
Does anybody use Life's Abundance? I'm researching food for my yorkie 2b, and I'm really liking Wellness, but I've come across several times people suggesting Life's Abundance. I was wondering if you fed Life's Abundance, what you thought of it. Or Wellness anybody? Does your yorkie like it, and are you happy with the results? I know every yorkie is different, but I think there's something to be said about different foods.

In the past I have fed both Life's Abundance AND Wellness. The dogs ate both foods well I changed because I was having a dry coat issue with Chattie and neither food helped correct the problem. I was also supplementing with Missing Link. I now feed Canidae All Life Stages and we have a GREAT looking coat.

Mine did not like either of those foods. The Wellness was a kibble size problem I think. I tried breakin git up smaller and they ate it from my hand. For some reason, they just do not like the Life's Abundance. They are both good foods, I would just get some samples and see what you dog likes. Most companies will send you free samples, Life's Abundance will charge you but it is not much.
I also use Canidae All Life Stages -- just the thing for us as we have 4 dogs of varying ages.
Another factor to consider is availability. I have to order my Canidae online as it is not available locally. That adds to the price a bit.

Life's Abundance is what mine eat. Recently, I have been mixing a little Canidae to their life's abundance since I finally found a local specialty store that carries it.
Personally, I LOVE what this food has done for both of their coats. I too, supplement with missing link and the results on my yorkie, poodle and cat have been excellent

Both are great foods. If your yorkie is eating the Wellness and not having any problems with it, then you need to stick to the Wellness. It really puts a strain on a dog's digestive system to switch foods and yorkies are so picky that he is liable to turn his nose up at a new food.

It is not recommended at the Dog Food Analysis website. It states that it has insufficient meat content and use of controversial fillers although it has not yet been given a 'Star' rating. (I kind of wonder what they would give it though.
If you go to their website, it looks like great food.
I think I going to switch to Canidae with some Innova EVO canned mixed in.

I fed wellness and I noticed that she started itching and sneezing, so I swiched to canidae all stages and she doesn't itch as much or sneeze as much. I think that wellness is a good dog food though, and it may not have even been the wellness that made her have allergy symptoms because I was also giving her cottage cheese at the time so it may have been that. I am going to stay with canidae for now because she is doing good on it and I just don't see any need to change back but I did like the wellness. I also give missing link. I think that all the premium dogs foods are going to be good as long as it is the PREMIUM food and not full of corn and other fillers.
