Saeed Gilani on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) I tried all the best food on the market, my dogs preferd ND Salmon with sweet potato, but did something even better, I mix all the Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain all four, this way they are getting all at once.October 22, 2014 4:07 am
Cassandra on Dead Dogs and Cats Used to Make Meat Meal Ok? So why are you saying what I post about is "garbage" seriously grow up.October 21, 2014 11:48 pm
Bob K on Pioneer Naturals Grain Free (Dry) Sarah - Make your own food, if you do not trust them, what are you waiting for? Many people make their own dog foods when their loved one has special needs. GMO free and Organic you are joking right? Who would know the answer for your QC concerns better than the company that had biased answers and is profit-driven and produces the sacred kibble. It is a for-profit company not a charity. Don't forget your vaccines and rabies protocol as required by state law.October 21, 2014 10:42 pm
theBCnut on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Could it be the weather?October 21, 2014 10:27 pm
Sarah Conant on Pioneer Naturals Grain Free (Dry) Find another food? There are very few dog food brands that are organic and gmo-free, why would I NOT consider feeding a food with healthier ingredients from healthier sources compared to even the most reputable brands? For the last time, if you don't know if the quality control issues have been fixed, which it is clear you don't, please do NOT comment on my post! I genuinely want to hear from someone that knows the answer, which I CANNOT get from the company because their answers will of course…October 21, 2014 10:22 pm
sonya on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) We have a sweet pit/lab mix that has been on Blue for about 9 months- a recent switch, maybe 2 months from the puppy chow to the adult chow, I am noticing she is much much hyper. She gets plenty of attention and out door time. Could it be the food that is making her so hyper?
She is also recently spayed, not sure if that would make her more hyper than before or what, thought it would calm her a bit.

Shawna on Off Topic Discussions VERY exciting!!! Congratulations HDM!!!!October 21, 2014 9:21 pm
Shawna on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) I can certainly understand your confusion!!! :)
Hopefully the notification was just a fluke. I've been on DFA, and VERY active up until just recently, for over three years and don't recall this ever happening to me (fingers crossed, knocking on wood that it doesn't in the future either)..
Have a nice night!!October 21, 2014 9:13 pm
Mike Sagman on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) How could you possibly label such a clear and direct response a "dodge"?
In any case, the rude and discourteous nature of your remarks here today and elsewhere to both me and others has never gone unnoticed.October 21, 2014 9:02 pm

Mike Sagman on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) USA Dog Treats,
Nice reply. But unless you are feeding your dogs a vegetarian diet, your remarks here have nothing to do with the topic of this thread or my reply to it.
Yes. I absolutely DO believe there is a huge difference between a dry dog food made with corn and soy beans and one based upon meat. Otherwise, why would I have created this website and posted all these reviews, in the first place?October 21, 2014 7:58 pm
Joey Yates on Lotus Dog Food (Dry) We got a small bag of the new Grain Free Oven Baked Fish and while he didnt scarf it down by itself, as soon as I added the Evangers Hunk of Beef it was on lol. I want him to have more fish than his Evo and Lotus provide. One thing is the big bag of Fish recipe is $15 more than the duck o_0 So kinda glad he doesnt absolutely love it. Will keep a small bag around though.October 21, 2014 7:39 pm
Brigette on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Thanks. I will print this out. ;)October 21, 2014 7:21 pm
Annie on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I am not blaming anyone. I am informing other pet owners to be aware that this food has a high mineral content. It's information that I wish I would have had when I was looking at the reviews. Jeez, relax. October 21, 2014 7:16 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Be careful ordering dog food from amazon..I bought a bag from them months ago and my dogs food wasn't fresh. In fact it seemed to be sitting a while. I stopped buying from amazon after that. I started buying all my treats and food from chewy.com. But I do agree Merrick is a great food. My pups agree!October 21, 2014 7:10 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) I have never had a problem with this food what's so ever. My Siberian husky and lab mix love this food. My husky is a very picky eater and my lab has food allergies. I went threw a few brands till I found Merrick. None of those brands in which stuck with my dogs. But every night they go nuts for Merricks food. Which sold me on day one. I bought my first bag from chewy.com. soon as I opened it both dogs ate right out of the bag. I've never seen my dogs so happy to see their food before. I do…October 21, 2014 7:07 pm
Bob K on Taste of the Wild (Dry) We have had 60 dogs in about 7 years as a foster parent for a breed specific rescue. Not all get fed Diamond Natural. We have them from 3 days to 4 months at our house one at a time. They all see the vet at least once. I have seen all sorts of skin issues, rashes, infections, growths, parasites and much more.October 21, 2014 7:05 pm

Bell peppers (red, green, yellow)
Green beans Lettuce
Sweet potatoOctober 21, 2014 6:56 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Yes go with plain. U may want to use only a small spoonful to see how ur pet likes it on his or her food. U may add another spoon full of pumpkin to make it have more of a taste. (Canned natural pumpkin is perfect). You may also give Apple
There are also great vegetables u can use as a topping. Green beans are great you can give them canned with the least sodium u can find. Or you can use…October 21, 2014 6:54 pm
Holly Quinn on Dry Dog Food and the Myth of Cleaner Teeth I stand corrected. I thought it was a product. My apologies to you.October 21, 2014 6:38 pm

sandy on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) The box stores around here have Wellness Core, Nature's Variety Instinct, Solid Gold Barking at the Moon, Merrick grain free and the new Nutro Natural Choice High Protein Grain Free. I forget who makes Nutro and Solid Gold. But you might try algae oil instead of fish oil if your dogs get anal gland issues with fish oil or a fish-based kibble. You might try keeping a food diary and write down any symptoms and what they're eating at the time and keep the ingredient label off of the foods for…October 21, 2014 6:11 pm

As someone else said on the thread....we will all be able to say we knew you when you were a poster on DFA. Now, don't forget us girl. So happy for you. You will go far.October 21, 2014 5:59 pm
theBCnut on Taste of the Wild (Dry) Hi Bob K
I've fed several different Diamond foods over the years. My dogs have been affected by every single dog food recall of theirs that I know of. Never again.October 21, 2014 5:37 pm
theBCnut on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Sorry, I live in a rural area, so I have no idea what either one sells. I mostly order from Chewy dot com. That way I don't have to drive 40 miles for dog food. You could try printing up the 5 star list and taking it with you.October 21, 2014 5:30 pm
theBCnut on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) Well, I can't blame you. That is hands down the weirdest thing I have heard of Disqus doing, and Disqus has done some severely bizarre things.October 21, 2014 5:25 pm
Debi Whitman on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Can you give me the name/s of other 5 star dog foods; that I can buy at either Petsmart or Petco?October 21, 2014 4:57 pm
CDub on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) I will go on record as apologizing for the post, and you are correct, I am not Charles. I typically don't weigh in on these internet squabbles. Here is the confusing part on my end; Disqus notified me that I had a reply (I expected it to be from Charles) when I clicked to view, your response to Charles was what it showed me. (that's why I didn't look to the right to see from, or to whom, the comment was intended) From this I draw the conclusion that this is done intentionally by disqus to keep…October 21, 2014 4:47 pm
USA Dog Treats on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Hi Mike,
Nice reply, but it has nothing to do with the diet I feed my dogs or the diet I recommend others feed their dogs!
You compared nutritionally unbalanced and incomplete fresh food diets to nutritionally balanced and complete kibbles.
That's like comparing a wrecked Mercedes Benz S class to a Dodge Dart in perfect condition and coming to the conclusion that the a Dodge Dart is a higher quality car than a Mercedes Benz S class.
I will sum up my philosophy on the way ALL animals should…October 21, 2014 4:40 pm
Brigette on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) :) I decided to stay with Merrick, since I trust that brand, and switch them to the grain free lamb for a while. I'm still transitioning but they seem to like it. I'll keep them on the lamb for a little while and add some toppings as you suggested ever so often. Do dogs normally eat yogurt? If I do use yogurt, should I go with plain?October 21, 2014 4:33 pm
theBCnut on Taste of the Wild (Dry) LOL!! I thought the same thing, but I've easily had that many. But I wouldn't say they have all had excellent results, since I've had dogs die of several different cancers, kidney disease, liver disease, arthritis, etc. If they all died of old age, I would have had to have had 10 dogs at a time, at least.October 21, 2014 4:09 pm

Hound Dog Mom on Off Topic Discussions Yes, vets can become board certified in nutrition. It's definitely something I'd be interested in, but I'll just have to see where my schooling takes me. I'll be exposed to a lot of things so my interests could change. I mean this summer I interned with a large animal vet and I ended up enjoying it much more than any of the small animal stuff I've done so who knows what I'll end up doing. :)October 21, 2014 3:47 pm
DogFoodie on Taste of the Wild (Dry) That's a lot of dogs for one guy.October 21, 2014 3:45 pm
theBCnut on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) I can tell you that there are many 4 star kibbles that I would sooner feed than BB. Their quality control is questionable and you pay a lot for all of their advertising. They are not as good as their price indicates.October 21, 2014 3:45 pm

Carrie Hammond on 4Health Dog Food (Dry) No, I just started him on it a few weeks ago. He didn't have any gas trouble when he was on the junky corn meal food from the regular store, so I was hoping a food with actual meat in it would be a smooth upgrade for him. Thanks for the recommendation, I will try the grain free next time I buy (I will say though I don't remember seeing it at my local TSC, but I will look again--I might have had "large breed dog food" tunnel vision.) ;-)October 21, 2014 3:21 pm
Bob K on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I live in the Midwest and have fed Diamond Natural to over 30 dogs and know others who have fed both Kirkland and Diamond Natural to dogs with excellent results. I suspect most products from Diamond in the Midwest come from their HQ plant in MO. I buy it at Menards for less than $.80/lbOctober 21, 2014 3:18 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Your dog can become bored with a dry dog food. I have a husky I know! If they were interested at first and became bored they can refuse to eat it. U can add pumpkin, yogart or baked chicken or w.e on top. Keep your dog interested in his food. You don't want to switch to too many products or ur dog can reject kibble all together. I work at a vet I've seen it all..October 21, 2014 3:04 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Your dog can catch anything at a daycare. I worked for one for years and it was terrible.October 21, 2014 3:02 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Oh BTW my husky is a picky finiky eater. If Merrick is good enough for her I'm sold as well.October 21, 2014 3:01 pm
tiff on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Both of my dogs are on Merrick. I have a Siberian husky and she loves this food!! I switch from the different flavors of grain free and she gobbles it down. My other dog has food allergies and he does amazing on this food. Both my lab mix and husky do amazing on this. If I even try to give them different food they refuse it. My dogs belly's are stuck on this food. October 21, 2014 3:00 pm
Mike Sagman on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Hi USA Dog Treats,
Since your reply here had little to do with my response to this visitor's inaccurate criticism of my personal understanding of a dog's omnivorous nature, I had originally planned to ignore your remarks.
However, to prevent others from absorbing your unfair and misleading comparison between "fresh" food and kibble, I decided that a response was necessary.
You said, "Both of these foods need major supplementation to be nutritionally complete and balanced. Both of these…October 21, 2014 2:38 pm
Cyndi on Off Topic Discussions Congratulations!! So happy for you!! We can all say 'We knew you when...'! Lol!!October 21, 2014 2:27 pm
Bob K on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Dry) Mixing kibbles is fine, just do not overfeed. Blue Buffalo Wilderness is a 5 star rated kibble and you are currently feeding a 4.5 star kibble. Often exercise can help with anal issues but often you have to do the yucky work.October 21, 2014 1:45 pm
aquariangt on Off Topic Discussions is your long term plan to focus on nutrition of some sort? If that's even a things for vets to focus on (mostly comparing to human medical because I don't know the whole system there)
I'm glad you have the where with all to focus and do that :) I always wanted to go into the animal sciences but found myself too restless with school to go for anything that long. Dealing with the clientele I have now, I certainly regret that decision from time to time :)
Edit: Why can't I ever get paragraph…October 21, 2014 1:43 pm
Bob K on Iams ProActive Health (Dry) d&k - Iams is a popular pet food but nothing special for what you are paying for. You can get some 4 and 5 star rated foods for the same price. Genetics and breeding are certainly major factors in a dogs health as is diet and exercise. How about getting a better food for the same money or perhaps less. Better Kibble - less money. Remember to transition slowly to a new kibble.October 21, 2014 1:40 pm
Kerry Lee Haas on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I'm sick of people blaming dog food companies for their sick dogs. If your dog has a known allergen or is prone to certain disease it is up to the pet parent to be responsible in feeding their pets. Don't blame the company or the food. A lot of us depend on these reviews to be accurate, so we know that we are feeding our pets the best we can give them. And I didn't insult you. I told you that you should have read the label more carefully and perhaps consulted your vet before feeding this brand…October 21, 2014 1:36 pm
Bob K on Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods 6 weeks is way to young to get a puppy mutt. Most breeders are suggesting 8 - 10 weeks and some even wait until 12 weeks. Using this website as your guide find some 4 or 5 star rated small puppy kibbles that are available in your area. Also do not forget puppy class and vet visits.October 21, 2014 1:33 pm
Bob K on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) So you make your dog food decision based on a companies marketing promotions/donations. There are many 3 star rated kibbles that are far better then Pedigree at the same price. ProPlan is a far better food than Beniful or Pedigree. A 10 year old dog can have lots of issues. Many dogs do not get enough exercise and are left crated or housed with no way to eliminate. This is also a major contributing cause of health issues.October 21, 2014 1:28 pm
Hound Dog Mom on Off Topic Discussions Thanks :)
No, there's really no such thing as a "pre-veterinary medicine" undergrad degree. Although, most students who apply to vet school do tend to major in animal science, biology or chemistry you can major in anything you want as long as you complete the prerequisite coursework.
I actually have an undergrad degree in global supply chain management. I'm just back in school finishing my prereqs now, I am taking some vet tech classes because the school I'm at now has a tech program but I'm…October 21, 2014 1:21 pm
Bob K on Pioneer Naturals Grain Free (Dry) Sarah - Have you contacted the company direct? What was their answer? What do you expect them to say? If you are concerned find another food. Pretty simple. Why risk it?October 21, 2014 1:18 pm
aquariangt on Off Topic Discussions congratulations! Is your undergrad in veterinary medicine of some sort as well? I'm sure you'll do a great job, you certainly have plenty of knowledge to be successful in the fieldOctober 21, 2014 12:32 pm

sandy on Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods I think (1) the breeder/owner of the pup is being irresponsible (IMO) to let a pup go that young, and (2) that's too young to be away from the mother and siblings and he will be stressed and you might end up with lots of vet bills. There are still things to be gained (physically, mentally and behavior-wise) by being with his canine family. I wouldn't personally take a puppy less than 10-12 weeks old.

Stormasis on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Seeing all the issues regarding the Merrick Duck & Sweet Potato, I became concerned. My dogs have been eating this for many months, and seemed to be doing well on it. I did attempt to change, and the dogs picked out the mix of the other brands and spit it on the floor. Since they are both doing so well on it, and really love it, I am sticking to it, and will stand by it. I also mix some of Merrick Canned grain free in and add a little water. They love it and refuse to eat any other. I also…October 21, 2014 7:30 am
aquariangt on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Humerous comment, yes. And I definitely agree with adding eggs and (to an extent) dairy making it far easier to balance a diet-same with humans. The state of dairy in this country has made the nutritional value of it less enticing thus me saying to an extent.
I do agree that it is possible, but I'm certainly of the belief that dogs have a bias towards meat (which I believe you do as well?)October 21, 2014 7:20 am

I took a look at your past comments. You have expressed very strong opinions in "most" of your 133 comments in the 6 months you have been here.

Sausha on Pedigree Dog Food (Dry) The reason I ever fed my dog pedigree in the first place was because they had a campaign in which they donated money to rescue dogs from kill shelters.

aimee on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Science/ research never proves anything. A scientist makes reasonable conclusions based on available data and is always open to changing those conclusions as new data becomes known. That is how science "works"
I got a chuckle out of a poster who wrote something along the lines of if you want proof go to the liquor store.
What is known is that a dog's known nutrient needs can all be met without the need for animal products.

Most likely the retailer will blame the distributor or mfg. The Mfg will blame the store or shipper for poor storage. Lots of finger pointing is usually what happens.October 20, 2014 11:06 pm
T.S. on Simply Nourish Dog Food (Dry) I buy the chicken and rice for adult dog food. In both the 30lb bag and 15lb bag I have found the moths and their webbing. The first time was after a few days, so I thought maybe my food container wasn't sealed properly. Last week I bought the 15lb bag and immedately after emptying it into the container I saw the worms and webbing. I returned it to the store and intend on contacting the company about it. The manager seemed totally unphased, like it's normal to find this in dog food. Apparently…October 20, 2014 10:45 pm

Anatx on Simply Nourish Dog Food (Dry) I purchased this food and noticed mold in less than half of the bag of food! I contacted the store and was told it was due to the humidity!! Not 1 but several bags October 20, 2014 10:18 pm
DogFoodie on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Friday's not far off. They'll be okay on it for a few more days. You could add some fresh lean meat or sardines to improve their diet while they're eating it. Or you could also consider Pure Balance, also made by Ol' Roy and sold at Wal-Mart. If your bag isn't opened you could exchange it.
It sounds like this isn't your regular food. What do you normally feed your dogs?October 20, 2014 9:02 pm
Jarrodsmom on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Now that does make a big difference if they are indeed a male. I would be offended myself to be called honey. Usually when I do it, it's face to face or on the phone. I would probably never call someone honey on the Internet now that I think of it. I did also appolize to Dori for jumping into it. Now that I know more of the story, I would never have spoken.October 20, 2014 9:00 pm
TheInspired Wolf on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) This is sickening.... I didn't know any of this and I just bought it today because I needed something to last them til this friday :/ ... smhOctober 20, 2014 8:47 pm
theBCnut on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Of course, since you are Jarrod's Mom, the "rules" are probably more relaxed. From Pfolfried's tone and confrontational manner, I assume it is a he, and I think others here made the same assumption. A man calling someone Honey comes across differently. And tone is completely lost on the internet.October 20, 2014 8:35 pm
Jason Lee on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Thanks for your advice. I will test this tonight. Hopefully Teddy's gonna like it. :)October 20, 2014 8:24 pm
Jarrodsmom on Evolution Diet Dog Food (Dry) Your right. I did not see any other rude comments by that person. I should have just kept my mouth shut but it just surprised me to have someone be jumped on. Or as least that is how it came across to me. Unfortunately, my dear mother and grandmother taught me the honey bit. But as I said, I have never been accused of offending anyone. Let's just start over. People, feed your dog right and love them as they should be loved. No abuse!!October 20, 2014 8:20 pm
theBCnut on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Add water to soften it up and maybe add a little canned food for extra flavor. It could go bad once it's opened, so keeping it for later isn't good.October 20, 2014 8:11 pm
theBCnut on Dry Dog Food and the Myth of Cleaner Teeth Prey model is not a product you can buy and it took my dog way less than a month for her teeth to come clean when I started feeding bones. And they've stayed clean for 8 years.
Some vets will try to scrape teeth on some dogs, basically to show the owner it can't be done and why they need to do it under anesthesia. It's up to the owner whether or not they take that next step. Apparently, she didn't. I'm sure the vet would have rather that she did.October 20, 2014 8:06 pm
