The company is marketing 4health as an affordable pet food that provides dogs of all ages and sizes with nutritional ingredients for optimal health.

"At Tractor Supply, we understand how our customers feel about their dogs as a member of their families,” said Ken Wilmes, vice president, divisional merchandise manager at Tractor Supply. "We’re excited that, in many cases, we will save our customers money and also improve the quality of nutrition for their pets.”

I work for the Tractor Supply Company in the Oxford store. Diamond does make our brand 4Health but this line of food has been produced along side with a Tractor Supply team who has decided the ingredients and quantities, this is why the food is sold under our name because it is our product produced with our customers in mind. But it is different than the Diamond self brand.The Diamond self brand dog food is still sold in our stores along with the 4Health. As far as the recall goes I can say for a fact that this past April 2012 was the only recall for Diamond in my 4 years at TSC. I'm not sure about anything earlier than that. I hope I have answered some questions but if anyone still has more they can call their local Tractor Supply where someone is always willing to help.

It is my understanding that 4Health dog food & treats are made by Diamond dog food company, who has had more pet food recalls than just about any other dog food company out there. I wonder if that's why it isn't sold under the name Diamond anymore. I actually saw on a dog food lable, Diamond company, so unless they've been sold out, it's the same company. Having said that, they get a 4 star rating on You decide for yourself, but do some research on to get updated information about recalls in addition to pet food specialists' take on the quality of most brands, with their explanations as to why they rate the foods between 1 and 5 stars.
