Suggestions Please
Somebody already suggested Taste of the Wild, but as far as I can tell it only comes in 30 lb. bags and there is no large breed formula.  
We have always fed our dogs Chicken Soup Large Breed Adult. Lately they haven't wanted it and the dogs have had diarrhea off and on for the past few weeks. Yesterday our 9 month old Belle started vomiting everytime she ate and had diarreah, this lasted for about 24 hours. She would not eat, but would drink plenty. She started eating again, but it was hamburger not her dog food, and she acts perfectly normal. My vet was kept up to speed on the problem and has declared her in good health. Has anyone else had this occur with any food?

Yes.  Modoc is 5 now but when was about that  age he was on chicken soup kibble and suddenly things just went awry.  He was put on a prescription diet I wasn't crazy over for a year or so then I decided to take him off it.  He did fine on Candidee for a while then those symptoms you discussed popped up again.  He's now bee on California Natural for 2 years and is doing fine. I don't know why this occurs with dogs but it does.  After 30 years of Dane ownership I've seen it multiple times.
You probably just need to determine what you want to switch to and slowly make the switch over a week.
Good luck.  Let us know how it goes and what you switched to,
