I don't know if I'm going to fit into this topic or not.
But bf and I spend a lot of time looking at the ingredients in dry dog food, to mix in with our pet rats' diet.
I want chicken listed as the first ingredient, Not corn. Last time shopping, we only found 2 brands that didn't have corn listed first.
kind of off topic: bf asked what the difference is between dry cat and dry dog food. I was always told cat food is to rich for a dog's system. Which is why I look for dog food for the rats. But after my bf helped me look at the ingredients for the dog food, he started looking at the cat food, and we noticed the brands that make dog and cat food had the exact ingredients in the same order from what we noticed.
Is there actually a difference?
Taste of the Wild is awesome, grain free. www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com . The dogs are doing well on it (an overweight black lab, 2 border collies, a rat terrier, and a Great pyrnese,) The lab seems to be getting fit and she is moving much better. We also feed the cat formula and our on blind house cat is acting like he can see stuff again. I think just shadows but considering we were thinking we were going to have to put him down soon to now is awesome.
I believe you have to find a dog food that works best for your dog. Cheap or Expensive. I have had great results with both depending on what the dog needs. I have fed Raw to Eagle pack. I have always used Purina Pro Plan (those of you who feed that they have change there formula) and Merrick.
With the Pro Plan formula change is it a Good or Bad change?
It has the same Kimble and then they added shredded pieces similar to there carver treats. So now mine are picking out the shredded pieces and leaving the rest. ERRRRRRRRRRRR! New formula should start showing up in stores this month. My dogs have been on it for 3 months as I buy my food when I am down at Purina Farms. So far so good here.
I like California natural. The dogs fur is so SOFT, they eat less of it and seem to like it.
Diamond Maintenance and Puppy. It's a good feed at a good price -- dollar for dollar a good value. Our dogs do very well on it -- good haircoats and no funky poo problems. I might feed fancier chow if I only had one Pomeranian or something, but we've got Border Collies, a Golden, and a Pit cross (or rather purebred Mongolian Onager hound if you want to get really technical and fancy about it). They eat a lot, no haute cuisine poochy meals for them.
And whatever they can beg off of Pookie's plate. Toddlers are bad for doggy discipline.
