Donna Clark on Best Low Fat Dog Foods Thank you, I will!June 25, 2016 1:32 pm
LabsRawesome on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Haha yeah I was. No I haven't ordered it yet. I actually haven't checked to see if it's available on the Costco site.
I'll have to check it out. lolJune 25, 2016 1:00 pm
LabsRawesome on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Yeah I went on Costco.com and put items in my cart and went to checkout.
When you get to checkout you can put your card # in or it has an option to buy without a card, but there is a surcharge for non members.June 25, 2016 12:44 pm
Crazy4cats on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Haha! I did not know non members could order from the website. Have you ordered the cat kibble? I remember that you were frustrated that your store didn't have it.June 25, 2016 12:32 pm
mahoraner on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) im going to check that out, because personally i would expect to have to enter membership information in the check out, im going to research that. Not even because of the dog food, i would probably buy a few things on there for myself (;June 25, 2016 11:48 am
Stori Lombardi on Meat Meal — The Mysterious Meat Concentrate Most People Know Little (or Nothing) About LOL June 25, 2016 11:26 am
Katelyn LeBlanc on Royal Canin Breed Health Nutrition Adult (Dry) I feel so sorry for your pets. There food is coming from roadside dead animals. The vets must love your kick backs though. Good luck with your advertising buisness. June 25, 2016 11:18 am
Lulu Citron on Best Weight Loss Dog Foods Mine had same symptoms and is allergic (confirmed) to lamb and peas and 5 others. I feed him with natural balance LID fish or duck. No more scratching no more ear infection. Get him test it is so much easier than trying to find out yourself by test error like my vet was making me do. There are peas in almost every dog food even the hypoallergenic the vet was selling me. I found a vet that agree to do the test right away and drove 2 hours to get there. When the results came in, I was advised…June 25, 2016 11:08 am
Sanz on Nulo Medal Series (Dry) I need a consensus. If you were to choose between two ingredients, would you rather have potatoes or pea fiber as a binder/filler?June 25, 2016 10:34 am
Sanz on Nature’s Logic (Dry) I am looking for the same particular food.June 25, 2016 10:30 am
Sanz on Nature’s Logic (Dry) Thanks.June 25, 2016 10:24 am
theBCnut on Freshpet Vital Grain Free (Rolls) If you want the OP to see your post, you definitely have to reply to the OP.June 25, 2016 9:16 am
theBCnut on Nature’s Logic (Dry) First, understand that pea fiber is not the starch ingredient in the food. It is just fiber. So it doesn't compare to a starch ingredient. Some would say millet is better than potatoes, because potato is a nightshade plant. Some would say it's worse, because it's a grain. I would say it depends on how your dog does on it. I have two that do great on this food and one that can't eat it at all.June 25, 2016 9:03 am
theBCnut on Wellness Core Reduced Fat (Dry) Most of the regulars here feed a rotational diet. So since we switch foods very regularly, we don't worry about some ingredients that we wouldn't want to feed long term. For me, potato fits in that category.June 25, 2016 8:59 am
theBCnut on How to Determine Your Dog’s Ideal Weight Since labs can be any where between 22 inches tall and 28-30 inches tall, there is no way to know just by a number on the scale if the dog is overweight, though most labs are overweight. They tend to live to eat and don't know when to stop. If the dog doesn't have a waist and a tuck up, it is definitely overweight.June 25, 2016 8:55 am
Susan Grove Moore on How to Determine Your Dog’s Ideal Weight I have a handicapped friend who has a chocolate lab 6 yrs old and he is 77 lbs is that overweight??June 25, 2016 8:46 am

Belinda Williams on Darwin’s Natural Selections (Raw Frozen) No. I've never experienced any bone fragments or anything like that. However, since the bones aren't cooked, it's unlikely anything to worry about. It's cooked bones that are brittle and cause problems. Uncooked bones are softer, and part of the normal ancestral diet of dogs.June 25, 2016 6:20 am
Belinda Williams on Darwin’s Natural Selections (Raw Frozen) My Shiloh Shepherd, Galen, is a service dog in training. While I can only afford to give Darwin's as a supplement, it has been absolutely wonderful for Galen. He loves all of the varieties, and hasn't had a single sick day or any stool issues the entire time he's had it added to his diet (7 months now). I've seen nothing but quality ingredients in the food. I will admit, though, that the bubble portion of the package is on the thin side, and can sometimes develop tiny leaks when the food is…June 25, 2016 6:13 am
Sally666 on Wellness Complete Health (Dry) Great article. Need to make a new diet for my dog. I recently found it on http://bestdogfood-review.com It is quite good for dogs. It has real organic chicken that is why I don't affraid to feed my dog with it.June 25, 2016 4:28 am
ChrissyW on Wellness Core Reduced Fat (Dry) Did anyone ever have any concerns about the potatoes in this dry food? it has 5 stars,i would love to get it for my 9 year old Pug,she needs to lose a few pounds,but i am reading so many different opinions on white potatoes for dogs.Thank you :)June 25, 2016 1:17 am
Sanz on Nature’s Logic (Dry) Is millet better than potatoes or pea fiber?June 25, 2016 12:51 am
Sanz on Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural (Dry) Okay, that clarifies it for me.
That explains why it's lower. I like Dr. Mike's methodology.
What do you feed your dogs?June 25, 2016 12:49 am
LabsRawesome on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) True. But you (or anyone else) can also check Costco.com
To see if it's cheaper with, or if there is, a surcharge without a membership.June 25, 2016 12:24 am
mahoraner on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Well, atleast its still less than a dollar a lb (its not like jet is selling it for $60 a bag)June 24, 2016 11:55 pm
Faerie DogMother on Old Yeller Dog Food (Dry) They feed soy/corn to make a higher profit at the publics expense (health). Grass fed beef has balanced Omega's and other life enhancing nutrients while soy/corn fed beef is actually inflammatory and overall not very healthful in many aspects. Just because it looks like food doesn't mean it's good for you. The book " animal vegetable miracle " explains how we went from healthy food (meats, fruit, veggies) to commercial food with less nutrients and vitamins - even though it looks the same .…June 24, 2016 11:00 pm
Jason Shwagner on Freshpet Vital Grain Free (Rolls) Sorry to hear about your furbaby. I will say though, there is zero chance of the food being a cause of canine diabetes unless this food was given over a sustained period of time like a year or more and even then this food is far less "fatty" than many on the market. Feeding a dog a food for a few weeks wont cause it unless it was already going to happen due to underlying issues. My dogs have been on it for a month, the beef and bison formula, and are doing superb so far and one has lost weight…June 24, 2016 10:58 pm
Dayl Culpepper on Nutrisca Dog Food (Dry) I started my Chinese Crested on the chicken and chick pea a few months ago. he adores it. though however he just developed a serious yeast infection in his ear. which can be caused from allergies to products to dust, feathers, cigarette smoke, etc. i noticed the smell and took a peak inside the ear and it smells just like the food. lol. i'm taking him off Nutrisca for precautionary measures. and putting him back on blue buffalo. its twice as expensive and much healthier for him. didnt know he…June 24, 2016 10:28 pm
LabsRawesome on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Good find. It's more expensive online tho. Jet.com is selling Kirkland for $35. Costco sells it for $26.June 24, 2016 10:26 pm
Vicki Hall on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) Me too I just don't know what to feed them now Let me know what you decide to feed I'm totally stressed about thisJune 24, 2016 10:16 pm
Penny Cleven on Gentle Giants Dog Food (Dry) hey Becky, in my professional opinion no, it is not a good food for an overweight dog, or really any dog. While I understand the economy and ease of dry food it is biologically inappropriate for a carnivore, dogs are carnivores, from their teeth to the short digestive tract they are meant to eat a diet of meat, organ an bone. dry, artificial pet food relies on soluble carbohydrates in the form of grains, vegetable starches and novel starches like peas, legumes, and quinoa... carbs turn to…June 24, 2016 9:48 pm
mahoraner on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) GOOD NEWS FOR PET OWNERS ON A BUDGET: Now you no longer need a membership to costco just to get this food, I just found it on jet.com :D

Crazy4dogs on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Oh, for sure! I don't do them often, but for crazy junk food DQ Blizzards are fun! ;-)June 24, 2016 8:34 pm
Crazy4cats on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Lol! I agree, but she was talking fast food. DQ seems to be known more for their desserts than food. June 24, 2016 6:31 pm
April Conley on Kal Kan Dog Food (Dry) I bought Kal Kan for my American Bully. He has been experiencing awful diarrhea and bloody stools. I've taken him to the vet 2 or 3 times trying to figure out what was causing this. At first we thought it was due to his chewing habit. I took anything and everything away from him so that we could fix the problem. It was an unsuccessful effort. If anything the problem became worse with each passing day. I decided a few days ago to try a grain free alternative. Since that very day the bloody…June 24, 2016 5:47 pm
Shawna on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) I didn't understand the whole post but I think JellyCat made one point quite clear (you must have missed this?). "This has no nutritional value"
Let's look at the nutritional value of sugar as compared to sweet potato
Sugar - no matter the quantity there is 0-fiber, 0-fatty acids and 0-amino acids. Although you would never need or use equal amounts of sugar to sweet potato for comparative purposes I am here. There is 28g of sugar in an ounce of granulated sugar. The nutrient balance…June 24, 2016 5:25 pm
Shawna on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) On this we can agree... I don't hate the ingredients in Taste of the Wild foods but I won't use them, regularly at least, due to company quality control issues and I do feel minimally processed foods offer more nutrition than brown food pellets.
"I do not believe that you can rank one food as being better than another by looking at an ingredient list."
Not as the sole criteria but it's a heck of a good place to start.June 24, 2016 5:11 pm
Lanie Malvit on Hill’s Science Diet Adult (Dry) royal canin is the best food you could ever feed a dog. but my vet said that if royal canin didn't exist that this would be the food she would recommend, so i guess it cant be that bad.
But royal canin is still the best possible food you could ever feed a dogJune 24, 2016 4:44 pm
Lanie Malvit on Royal Canin Breed Health Nutrition Adult (Dry) Its not repetitiveJune 24, 2016 4:31 pm
theBCnut on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) OM! You have got to try hot fudge banana. Just sayin'.June 24, 2016 4:29 pm
mahoraner niall on The Shocking Truth About Commercial Dog Food you're very welcome (:
its so aggravating that purina fools innocent pet owners into thinking that purina is the healthiest food out there, because that's far from the truth (VERY far)
But in a way, its kind of funny, A few years ago they were trying to tell consumers that grains were "soooooo healthy", but now, 3 years later they have 5 different grain free foods.
But not to sound evil, but im kinda happy you found the bones, because if you didn't, you probably would have kept feeding alpo and…June 24, 2016 2:47 pm

ellen on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Thanks for replying, Chrissie. The dogs are doing better and I am glad to hear yours is too! We had our dogs on rice and chicken for about a week when another, previously unaffected dog, got diarrhea & started vomiting as well. So we deduced that perhaps they have a virus. We kept them all on rice and chicken for about another week, just to be safe threw out the old bag of kirkland, and bought a new one two days ago. We are now slowly incorporating it back into their diet. Fingers crossed…June 24, 2016 12:10 pm
Lola on The Shocking Truth About Commercial Dog Food Yes thank u I feel awful, I thought alpo was supposed to be good. I'm gonna try the nutro max. I need to stop watching commercials and start buying better for my pups, thank u for the helpJune 24, 2016 11:19 am
aimee on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Since Beneful contains ingredients that don't fit with your philosophy then you should choose something else.
How do you think the sugar content of Beneful compares to the sugar content of a food that contains sweet potatoes apples and bananas? Would you consider a food that contains those ingredients to be terrible because of the sugar content?
The reformulated Beneful doesn't have sugar.. Do you think that makes it a better food then it was when it contained sugar?June 24, 2016 11:15 am
Chrissie on Kirkland Dog Food (Dry) Hi Ellen, sorry it took me a bit to respond! Sorry to hear about your dogs...I hope they're doing better! I ended up switching food as well - this happened to me with two separate bags, so I didn't want to keep trying the Kirkland stuff. Since switching from Kirkland to a grain-free food mixed with rice (the vet suggested to keep him on rice since he has been tolerating it well and the grain-free stuff might be too rich for him), we've had no diarrhea and minimal vomiting, which is a miracle…June 24, 2016 10:52 am

theBCnut on Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural (Dry) Not necessarily. If they have not had a formula change, then Dr. Mike will look at all the info and determine that it is the same and the review will stay the same, but it will be up to date.
BTW, another reason for the difference in carb level may be because the company is reporting only the carb content that is actually usable, while Dr. Mike's estimate of the carbs includes the fiber, since indigestible fiber is still legally counted as a carb. Also Dr. Mike uses an estimate for ash…June 24, 2016 8:18 am
Susan on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) Canidae seems to digest easier then the Wellness Core, I do my kibble test for Patch... get a glass or cup put warm to very warm water in cup, not boiling water & add a few kibbles, a good kibble that's digest real easy will float to the top of water & will go soft all the way thru within 20mins to 50mins, I found Wellness took over 1 hr to go soft ....

bojangles on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Hi aimee,
Let's talk about people instead of dogs for a minute, but let's use the same arguments, and reasoning that you use all the time for dogs.
Every day at lunchtime we notice that one of the mommies in our group always feeds her 2 kids cereal, with a side of water. We also notice that whenever we're together at breakfast or dinnertime she also feeds her kids cereal with a side of water but she adds a grape or a strawberry, a carrot or a small piece of cheese.
One of the bolder ones in…June 24, 2016 2:45 am
Sanz on Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural (Dry) Will the update mean higher in percentage of carbohydrates? No longer 28%?June 24, 2016 2:25 am
aimee on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) If I had to pick.. I'd go with Burger King.. but I'm not much of a burger eater anymore. When I was a teen for a fast food meal myself and friends would drive to BK for burgers.. MCD's for fries and Arby's for the shakes. No way around it.... we were either eating melted shakes or cold burgers. McD's was between the two so the fries were always reasonably hot yet when we completed gathering our meal.
I do not believe that you can rank one food as being better than another by looking at an…June 24, 2016 1:49 am
ChrissyW on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) Thank you hon! I'm wondering if the Wellness would be a good one for her,to eat & lose weight on? My 1 year old loves the Wellness toy breed.June 24, 2016 1:14 am
sandy on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) All my pugs have done well and lost weight on foods with moderate or more protein and moderate fat. I haven't used any weight loss type of food for any of the fat ones. I've had two fosters that were 38-40 lbs. they absolutely looked like pigs. So sad. I've had around 280 fosters now and they all eat at least moderate protein and fat with canned food or raw toppers and all ages eat this. My oldest foster was 16. June 24, 2016 1:06 am
Shawna on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Yep, I'm a fan. Interestingly though, I dislike Wendy's hamburgers --- which actually seem to look and taste more like real meat. :) Yes, I'm ashamed... hehe
I'm not sure how ingredients matter, except when they don't?June 24, 2016 12:51 am
aimee on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Really?? Big Macs and McDonald's shakes?? Blech : P I never liked the taste. The fries though... yeah, I can agree with you there ....those are tasty.
As I said "This is not to say that ingredients don't even matter as I think they do
but for me company will always trump an ingredient line up."June 24, 2016 12:38 am

bojangles on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Canned) Hi Amateria,
While processed celery as in powder or juice might have some of it's glutamic acid freed up, celery juice and or powder are high in nitrates and are used to "cure" meats and other things, while the manufacturer is still able to say that the product contains no added nitrates or nitrites.June 23, 2016 10:46 pm
Elaina Eakle on Gentle Giants Dog Food (Dry) I would personally want a food that is higher in protein and lower in carbs for an overweight dog, unless medical conditions prevent that. June 23, 2016 10:45 pm
Shawna on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Tells you everything you need to know about their training, doesn't it? :)June 23, 2016 10:29 pm
Amateria on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Canned) Says the root powder contains msg, I'm trying to find some better info website, but it's being difficult.
Also states the powder as being a nitrate and to not use it to cure meat. (Naturally occurring apparently)
Based on a Facebook page, celery seed extract is a form of msg.
So on that note it's most likely used as a preservative for the roll. June 23, 2016 10:27 pm
Shawna on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Canned) Interesting!! I've never heard of celery anything being associated with MSG. It's been years since I was researching this though. Celery isn't a high source of protein so I'm not sure where the glutamic acid would come from unless they add it? Do you know?
The dried cultured whey product and the chicken broth are definitely sources and possibly the dried egg as well.June 23, 2016 10:07 pm
janice gross on 9 Tips That Can Help You Find a Superior Dog Food Brand Hi Shawna, I did get the sportsmix lamb and rice, and it does have omega 3,6 in it, so I'm going to mix some vegetables and some nutritional things with it, so I hope that it works, he normally eats the freshpet rolled refrigerated food, but its not grain free, so I think that your right, I think the food may be the issue. Thank you so much for your help, I'm new at this sort of thing, so I appreciate all of the help from everyone on this Disqus. Have a good evening! June 23, 2016 9:59 pm

janice gross on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) Hi crazy4cats. Thanks! I was looking for canned food because my chihuahua normally eats the freshpet rolled refrigerated food, which you slice and its soft, but not grain free, so I thought that I could gradually transition him on the hard food and mix some broth, and maybe some other vegetables in there to give him more nutrition, and maybe his mother and father will eat it too, because they are all three on the same dogfood, but still waiting on the food to come. The sportsmix is lamb and…June 23, 2016 9:39 pm

Amateria on Blue Buffalo Wilderness (Canned) Two sugars and msg, because your dog won't eat the flavourless roll otherwise hehe.
I have read that celery powder is msg(generally anything with celery in its name) not sure how true that is though.
Actually isn't natural flavour also classed as msg?June 23, 2016 9:18 pm

bojangles on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) Hi Shawna,
I've always found it interesting in a negative way that a Vet who is Board certified in nutrition would recommend an ultra-processed, extruded food that contains rendered ingredients as the primary nutrition for a dog, any dog!
Could you imagine going to a nutritionist and having them recommend cereal and a multivitamin as your sole diet. You'd drop them like a hot potato!!!June 23, 2016 6:19 pm

LabsRawesome on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) The op means if you compare the amount of food you will need to feed a dog between Ol'roy and Orijen, the dog will eat less volume when it eats Orijen.June 23, 2016 5:54 pm
bojangles on 9 Tips That Can Help You Find a Superior Dog Food Brand Hi Shawna,
I agree that there are many other factors that affect hair growth e.g. age, health, diet, environment, genes, stress, etc.
I think that Cloee? in the beginning was showing the effects of stress and maybe a not so healthy diet when you first adopted her and after her situation improved she stopped excessively shedding her hair.
Good job Shawna!June 23, 2016 5:51 pm
bojangles on Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural (Dry) Hi Sanz,
It's because the Guaranteed Analysis on dog foods always list the protein (38%) and the fat (20%) as minimums. When you calculate the carb content based on the minimums you come up with about 28%.
A lot of dog foods under report the fat by 5 or 10 percent (or more) because they don't want a "high fat food". They tend to not under report the protein as much because they would rather have their food considered high protein than high fat.
So in reality the fat content of this food is…June 23, 2016 5:40 pm
Shawna on Beneful Dog Food (Dry) I have to assume that because the star ratings on this website are, at least partially, based on the ingredient list, that most relying on these ratings do have some bias towards individual ingredients.
If I in even the tiniest way didn't think ingredients truly mattered I can assure you I'd be eating a Big Mac, McDonald's French Fries and a milkshake, along with a couple different vitamin / mineral supplements to balance the diet, on a very regular basis. I think most people do understand…June 23, 2016 5:39 pm
theBCnut on Best Raw Dog Foods This has happened before, so I imagine that this is another one of Discus's updates.June 23, 2016 5:26 pm
theBCnut on Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural (Dry) You are welcome.June 23, 2016 5:24 pm
theBCnut on Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural (Dry) Dr. Mike converts everything to dry matter basis. That way you don't have to wonder about the different amounts of moisture in different foods in a comparison. Here, you are comparing what the different foods would be like with 0% moisture. Also, this review is to be updated very soon. It has been a while since it was written and the formula may have changed some.June 23, 2016 5:23 pm
