Hater & Molly's Mom on Suggested Raw Dog Foods Hope you feel better soon!
November 25, 2014 7:48 pm

Hater & Molly's Mom on Performatrin Ultra Grain Free (Dry) My senior girl can eat anything. She doesn't need to be transitioned. She loved this food but it didn't love her. Way too much grass eating and vomiting. I was talking to one of the clerks at PetValu and they told me if it doesn't come out one end it comes out of the other. Not the first time he has heard it. I still think it's a good food, it just didn't work for my girl.
November 25, 2014 7:45 pm

Hater & Molly's Mom on Performatrin Ultra Grain Free (Dry) Microwaving can destroy the nutrients and enzymes in the food. Just two seconds can do that.
November 25, 2014 7:41 pm

Hater & Molly's Mom on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) That's wonderful that you are feeding your pup a much better food! You will have a lot fewer vet visits too.
November 25, 2014 7:37 pm

Bob K on Performatrin Ultra Grain Free (Dry) Marcie - Mix in the new food with the food he was previously eating and slowly transition to the new food. Its not that hard to get a dog to eat. Perhaps some rice mixed in or egg. Drizzle a little beef gravy on the top. Mix in a little yogurt or pumpkin. Mix in a little soft dog food and mush it all up Perhaps add a little water and microwave a few seconds and get the juices mixed in.

bonnie teat on Whole Earth Farms Grain Free (Dry) Changed our dog from grocery store-type dog food. Had problems with diahrea. Problem gone! She loves the dry and we give her 12 can of their canned mixed and she loves it!

Michi on Primal Raw Frozen Formulas (Raw Frozen) I've been feeding nuggets for 7 years and never found bone that big, wonder if its an issue with the patties? I would call them with batch number.
November 25, 2014 4:48 pm

Michi on Primal Raw Frozen Formulas (Raw Frozen) The primal website has a feeding calculator. You put in the weight, the formal and the desires % for weight loss, maintenance or gain etc. It will tell you how many ounces of the produce to feed.

Crazy4cats on Off Topic Discussions Please take note: Here is a new recall for cat and ferret food: http://truthaboutpetfood.com/natura-pet-recalls-5-lots-of-dry-cat-and-dry-ferret-food/

Marcie on Performatrin Ultra Grain Free (Dry) 11 week old boxer doesn't like this at all, i liked the ingredients and the ratings.. but i guess if he doesn't eat it, what i like doesn't matter.
November 25, 2014 3:40 pm

Marcie on Performatrin Ultra Grain Free (Dry) I just switched my boxer pup on to this food, and i too have noticed a dull coat! the puppy kibble is huge, and he just doesn't like it... back to square one i go.

Rhonda on Best 4-Star Dry Puppy Foods i have a 5 month old shichon, or shih tzu mix and I am almost out of the food from the breeder. She is on Nutrisource, but I don't know which one. And that is really expensive and no one carries it around here. I'm having a hard time picking a new brand. She likes this kind, but I notice she has been scratching alot and I'm wondering if it is because of the food. Any suggestions for an inexpensive dog food? I need something that I can buy from a pet store or rural king. I just need to try…
November 25, 2014 3:12 pm

theBCnut on Suggested Raw Dog Foods She swept my legs right out from under me and I'm messed up! I thought we were herding, she thought we were doing MMA cage fights. I think this one is going to take me a few days. I'm going back to bed now.
November 25, 2014 12:47 pm

Kikka on Solid Gold Dog Food (Dry) Just to let everybody know, unfortunately Solid Gold changed the ingredients of Just a Wee Bit, adding peas which my dog is allergic to... so I will have to switch food. Too bad because she loves it.
November 25, 2014 12:44 pm

Dori on Jerky Treats Death Toll Rises JMO also C4C. With all the jerky recalls that have occurred I think anyone feeding jerky that they have not made themselves is basically gambling with the health and life of their dog.
November 25, 2014 12:41 pm

Dori on Suggested Raw Dog Foods Hi BC. Just wanted to say that I hope you are on the mend and that you must stop wrestling with said goat. He seems to have gotten the better of you. We here on DFA cannot afford for you to be out of commission.
November 25, 2014 12:36 pm

Bob K on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) They are not horrible foods as they have more than a 1 star rating, they are far better than starvation and will keep a dog fed. The issue is you are paying a premium for a highly marketed average or inferior product.
November 25, 2014 12:30 pm

Bob K on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) Ingredients lists are for what is in the bag. This is for nutritional content. If the bag or batch of kibble is spoiled, contaminated or poor ingredients are used the ingredient list might look great but the product is bad or poor quality. Example - You go to a 5 star restaurant for fresh steak, you pay a fortune for the best but your steak is frozen in the center and the outside is chared black and tastes burnt. The salt shaker is clogged with lumpy salt and the pepper is moldy. You have…
November 25, 2014 12:25 pm

Bob K on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) Problem with mailorder and internet sales is you have no control over what they send you for expiration dates and returns are often troublesome. Usually better to buy local.
November 25, 2014 12:20 pm

Michele Dixon on Go! Fit and Free (Dry) Yeah! That sounds awesome!
November 25, 2014 11:41 am

Crazy4cats on Jerky Treats Death Toll Rises I for one am not willing to buy any type of jerky treat no matter where it is made or sourced. You sound concerned as well. You won't forgive yourself if you go ahead and buy it and then later regret it. JMO!
November 25, 2014 11:39 am

Nathan on Jerky Treats Death Toll Rises Does anyone have any input on these? Supposedly sold by costco and had one voluntary recall for biscuits in 2007. I know of a professional trainer who uses them and I'm looking to do the same due to volume and cost. Says Made in USA. I emailed the company asking about their products and they gave me this email: "Sunshine Mills, Inc. products are manufactured in U. S. Facilities using domestically sourced ingredients and packaging. In addition our manufacturing plants are ceritified under SQF…

sharron on Stella and Chewy’s Freeze Dried (Freeze-Dried) according to opinions which is considered better - stella and chewy's freeze dried or orijen freeze dried - thanks
November 25, 2014 10:12 am

theBCnut on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods One of the major factors that gives foods higher ratings is the amount of meat protein in the food, so you will not find a low protein food with a high rating. Good luck in your search.
November 25, 2014 10:01 am

theBCnut on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods Sorry it has taken so ling for me to get back. I got hurt and am kind of laid up. I definitely like Preformatin better, and if his stools were getting better on it and you are willing to buy it, go for it. If you want to use up the Fromm, wait until he is doing good on a regular food and then mix it with his regular food, but only about 1/4 Fromm. Feeding a rotational diet really helps a lot of dogs with sensitive stomachs, so once you get him settled on one food, you ought to check into…
November 25, 2014 9:40 am

theBCnut on Suggested Raw Dog Foods For the one with issues, try to keep the canned/freeze dried/or whatever the same as the kibble. You might want to look at Canine Caviar or Nature's Variety Instinct LID. They have only a few ingreidents and so it is easier to start figuring out what your dog doesn't react to, which really helps you to figure out what he does react to. I just end up giving all the foods I have to reject to my dog that has no food issues.
November 25, 2014 9:33 am

theBCnut on Suggested Raw Dog Foods With my dog, I can tell within 3 days that he is starting to get better. It takes about 10 weeks for all symptoms to completely disappear though. So you should know pretty quickly if a food is helping.
November 25, 2014 9:27 am

theBCnut on Suggested Raw Dog Foods I'm sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this interesting discussion. One of my goats tried out some new ninja moves on me and I'm a bit laid up at the moment. I'm afraid you misunderstand me. I also believe a dog's ability to deal with bacteria is multifactorial. I do believe that the pH in the stomach is lower with raw food and that low pH does kill some of the bacteria in the stomach. I have had this discussion before with me on that side, and I'm not trying to deny these things.…

karen on Northwest Naturals (Raw Frozen) I just switched my 50lb border collie/lab mix to NW naturals. Because she eats 2 pounds a day, I use the 2lb Chubs. I can just cut it in half, once it's thawed and give her half in the morning and half at night. Did a cost analysis on this versus the Now! Senior dry dog food she was eating and the cost difference was minimal. To feed her the dry dog food it was $18.13 per week, and to feed NW Naturals it is $20.94 per week. Granted I live in Portland near where this is made, but it's really easy…
November 25, 2014 9:09 am

Bunker on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) "They don't look to the ingredient list to evaluate quality..." I'm confused, if you don't look at ingredients to evaluate quality, then why have an ingredients list?
November 25, 2014 7:33 am

Karina Salas-Amparo on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) The shedding and rashes sound familiar to me. I put my baby on grain free and potato free but she was still itching and shedding. Turned out to be a fish allergy. Bulldogs, sharpei and chow chows are known for having a high probability to being food sensitive to fish and chicken. Try orijen regional red or go! Grain and potato free turkey. My chow does ok on orijen adult except for the gas and wet end stool ( I suspect the fish) She is perfect on go! Turkey

kellsey on Pure Balance Dog Food (Dry) Can anyone tell me if they use the lamb and brown rice. My dogs love it but trying to see if I need to switch to one of the other ones and pay a little less??
November 25, 2014 1:07 am

kellsey on Pure Balance Grain Free (Dry) So my dogs love this dog food!!! I use the lamb and brown rice for sensitive stomachs. I came across this dog food when I was fostering for a friend. My foster dog was throwing up a yellow foam, consisting of an empty stomach (from eating so much but pooping just as fast). So I went to Walmart and found pure balance. Bought it and he ate it up along with my other two dogs. Now I foster another dog who is about 9 weeks old. She cannot get enough of it. I recommend this dog food for everyone.

Karina Salas-Amparo on Go! Fit and Free (Dry) You bet! At least the GF and PF turkey goes on top of the rotation list

Karina Salas-Amparo on Go! Fit and Free (Dry) Hi Michael. I live in the Phils. and the shipment for grain free potato free turkey was stuck at the pier. Well it cleared today and boy am I hoarding that Go! S&S grain and potato free turkey.

miss415 on Tiki Dog Food (Canned) I lol'ed at your post because my dogs love nothing more than green tripe! I feed my older dog (13.5 years) home cooked + green tripe & my puppy gets a similar diet with more variety but I needed something to have on hand that I could feed her when I run out, forget to thaw, or when we go away for the weekend, etc. She inhales the Tiki & licks the bowl til it shines!
November 25, 2014 12:52 am

Karen on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) I tried raw food with my westie, she won't have anything to do with it, Perhaps if I had started her when she was younger. She is almost 14.
November 24, 2014 11:41 pm

Karen on I and Love and You Nude Food (Dry) I have bought this food. The price has gone way up. Spoke with a manager in the Health food store where I purchase this food for any suggestions on other foods. She showed me the ingredients even in this food that end with "ate" are an msg? i am visually impaired at this time, so i may have misspelled the "ate".I am learning more about this. I never knew msg was added to pet food. I suppose it would be to get the pets to crave the food. Not happy about it as I believed I was getting a good…
November 24, 2014 11:37 pm

Emily Craig on Rachael Ray Nutrish Just 6 (Dry) Same with mine. It is a bad food that needs to be taken off the market.
November 24, 2014 11:27 pm

Emily Craig on Rachael Ray Nutrish Just 6 (Dry) Made one of my dachshunds very very ill. This food is poison.
November 24, 2014 11:26 pm

Emily Craig on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) I would never feed my dog a food that produced diarrhea or vomiting. That is beyond my comprehension. Wow!
November 24, 2014 11:24 pm

megan on CaniSource Dog Food (Dehydrated) I would like to see a review of the grain free as well!
November 24, 2014 11:22 pm

Emily Craig on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) Thank you for a very well said and intelligent answer. I just love all these people that think the finest and brightest in the Veterinary field are all wrong. It is like trying to perform your own heart surgery. I hope you don't mind but I am coping your answer and using it! Bravo!!
November 24, 2014 11:21 pm

Emily Craig on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) Because your Vet is an educated and intelligent doctor who knows it is about nutrition, not ingredients. The large companies are the only ones who do testing and research. Listen to your Vet.

Storm's Mom on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) Have you ever increased their protein by 20% before like you've done with the Blue to Merrick switch? That's where the probiotics can help with switching to a new food (regardless of how long the transition is). The dogs were also on Blue for "a long time" prior to an attempted switch over to Merrick, so while it's great that you did a gradual transition, it may not have been enough because your dogs stomachs are so used to only one food. Again, that's where probiotics can be so helpful.…

sharron on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets (Raw Frozen) thank you
November 24, 2014 10:10 pm

Riley Lavender on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets (Raw Frozen) This food is an absolute treasure. My heart dog, my pride and joy... 5 year old sheltie mix has been going through treatment for Valley Fever. Instinct raw is the ONLY food he will willingly eat. I've tried other commercial raw foods and they're evidently not nearly as tasty. Without Instinct, my dog would likely be a rack of bones. It's a bit on the pricy side if you've got a dog bigger than a toy breed, and damn near impossible to afford if you've got a large breed and considering I'm a…
November 24, 2014 10:06 pm

Dog_Obsessed on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Frozen Diets (Raw Frozen) Both are great foods, I would suggest rotating between them.

Travis Mack on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) We are back on Blue exclusively and won't be going anywhere else. The home is a lot happier.
November 24, 2014 9:33 pm

Travis Mack on Merrick Grain Free Dog Food (Dry) I have been raising dogs my entire life and never once did we ever have to use probiotics to go from one food to another. Mixing the food with the previous food for about a week or two has always done the trick with God only knows how many dogs. The difference between the blue formula and the merrick was about 20% more protein. I moved them back to the blue exclusively and my home is a happier and FAR less smelly place.
November 24, 2014 9:32 pm

Dog_Obsessed on Dry Matter Basis — A Better Way to Compare Dog Foods Thanks everyone. I will probably first try to get samples, and if that goes well then ask my local retailer to special order.

onhae on Wishbone Dog Food (Dry) Hi Kelly, I'm sorry to hear about your dog throwing up this food. It's always scary for me when one of my spoiled guys gets sick and I hope that all of your dogs are liking the new food you found. I couldn't find this food locally, so I bought it on amazon. Then I discovered k9cuisine.com, which has a price similar to amazon's, but offers free shipping for orders over $50 and occasionally offers coupons. I haven't noticed any difference in quality or the 'use by' dates. They may be worth…

Jay on Blue Buffalo Freedom Grain Free (Dry) I have just had a really bad experience and I advise you DO NOT FEED YOUR PET BLUE BUFFALO PRODUCTS. I have a two year old lab and she always acts like she is hungry. Well two weeks ago I had a new bag of BB freedom, she sniffed at it and forced herself to eat it, that is strange for her. That night her stool seemed loose, the next morning the same reaction. I came home over lunch and poor thing had vomited and had diarrhea everywhere. I took her to the vet, through out the entire bag of…

Bob K on Dry Matter Basis — A Better Way to Compare Dog Foods Online dog food purchases are often difficult to return and you loose control over the expiration date. Avoid mailorder dog foods and buy local where you have control over returns, selecting the bags expiration date.
November 24, 2014 3:29 pm

Bob K on Dry Matter Basis — A Better Way to Compare Dog Foods Avoid mailorder dog foods, if you have issues returns can be challenging and expensive. Some mailorder companies do not manage the expiration dates and inventory well and may ship you older products than if you selected your own in a store.

November 24, 2014 2:27 pm

LabsRawesome on Dry Matter Basis — A Better Way to Compare Dog Foods Hi Dog Obsessed, I just read your post. I'd try the sites everyone else mentioned. Also, if you have an independent pet store in your area, you can ask them if they'll order it for you. Some stores in my area will order foods that they don't carry.

Bobby dog on Pure Balance Dog Food (Dry) Hi Lowne Wolfe: I haven't fed any of the Pure Balance dry, but I use Pure Balance stews in my rotation; the 95% are a little too high in fat for my dog. Check the stews out, very affordable addition to your dog's diet ($1/can)! There are a few more dry foods (and canned) that are rated between 3-5 stars at Wal-Mart. Have a look at this DFA thread for a list of dry and canned available at Wal-Mart and for some other budget friendly foods available at TSC and…

Bobby dog on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) I have mixed THK with kibble as well. Bobby liked the beef recipe the best. I still have a few boxes and unfortunately, Bobby doesn't care for it anymore. I have been making treats out of what I have left and they are a big hit with him.
November 24, 2014 1:16 pm

Bobby dog on Best 5-Star Dry Puppy Foods From the above list Wellness, Earthborn, Annamaet, EVO, and Nature's Variety Instinct. Feel the kibble through the bag or ask a store employee about the size of the kibble to be sure it's the size you are looking for. Nutrisource and Fromm's are smaller sized kibble as well. Good luck finding a new kibble!
November 24, 2014 1:08 pm

Dori on Suggested Raw Dog Foods Are you making sure that any treats your dog is getting contain no grains? We often forget about the treats. Also, have you tried grain free, white potato free, corn free, soy free and poultry (including all fowl) free? Just a thought.

Kelly Palmer on Wishbone Dog Food (Dry) I tried this food recently for my four dogs, they all loved the taste and it was competitively priced, but I started to notice my older one throwing it up occasionally. I don't worry too much since she throws up occasionally, but this was a few times over two weeks and it looked like nearly the whole meal and whole pieces of unchewed food. She normally eats fairly fast, but usually chews the food. It alarmed me that it was being swallowed whole and then expanding in her stomach to the point…
November 24, 2014 12:02 pm

Kelly Palmer on Nulo FreeStyle (Dry) We just got through out first bag of the lamb formula (takes about two weeks for our four dogs) and no issues at all. The dogs love it and it is actually available in my local pet store as well as the national pet store chain near my home. It is also priced competitively for a higher end food which is nice (around $2.10 a pound).

November 24, 2014 10:33 am

Crazy4cats on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) Yes, imo, it is fine to mix with kibble. I am feeding the higher protein beef flavor to my dogs with kibble a few days a week. I think it is called Love, but not sure? Anyway, I put in about 3 tablespoons on top of their kibble. I believe it's about 100 calories. Then add some water, mix and let it sit a few minutes and feed. I wouldn't say they love it, but they definitely like the higher protein grain free flavors than the ones with grain. Their poopies are very good after I use this food…

At first it was a 1/4 cup twice a day. After he loss the weight we increased it but I am ordering a good puzzle hopefully it will help some. Like you said he will eat until he pops
November 24, 2014 10:00 am

Crazy4cats on Dry Matter Basis — A Better Way to Compare Dog Foods In addition to Sportdog and Amazon that DogFoodie recommended, Rocetpetz also sells it, but their shipping costs were too high for me. I think I have also seen it on EBay. I only have one retailer in my area about 20 miles one way. She charges about as much as Amazon anyway. But, I can get a 50lb bag of the joint health, however. So I think it is worth the trip. Good luck. This food has been great for my dogs!

Crazy4cats on PC Nutrition First Dog Food (Dry) Hmmmm? I've reread your post and the first sentence says: "Why the change to a different kibble?" It does not say anything about TotW not making a large breed formula. I'm sorry if I misunderstood. Anyway, I've learned since coming to this site how to read a label. I have two large breed dogs and have come to realize that most foods marketed for a large breed dog have lower protein and fat levels. Which means they are higher in carbs.

Samantha on Suggested Raw Dog Foods What do you feed ur dog? The only thing I can s say I'm giving my dog that you said not to would be the starch ( not on purpose though). I check her food to make sure there is no grains, and no potatoes, and I didn't know carrots were bad, but there are no carrots anywhere in her diet anyway. I'll try the shampoo for sure. Can I order it online?

Samantha on Suggested Raw Dog Foods Lol! Well I figure you can get a variety in one dog food, so I don't mix brands or flavors when it comes to the kibble, but I do add freeze dried meat to their kibble and that is a different brand than the kibble. The last few weeks I have been adding the freeze dried salmon, thinking maybe she's needing the fish oil. If I start today comparing ingredients what dog food do u suggest I should start with? I would like to keep adding a freeze dried meat or a canned food to the kibble, my dogs seem…

Samantha on Suggested Raw Dog Foods She gets only 5 star no grain and all natural food weather its kibble or the freeze dried or both. I have 5 kids and 9 dogs so going the all raw food route was so hard to do I decided I just couldn't do it the time was hard to find. I want only the best for them but watching my poor dog go thru this I feel guilty like I should be finding the time, but it's just not there. All of my dogs eat a different brand of food, all 5 star and natural. How long should I try her on one food before…

Samantha on Suggested Raw Dog Foods We have taken her to 3 different vets, been prescribed 3 different shampoos, and medications none in which helped. The benadryl maybe only because it makes her drowsy. So because of that she only gets it at night and I cut the dose in half. That's the only way I feel she's been able to sleep comfortably. The rest of the time she is miserable. I cannot take my dog and lock her in a box away from the world. I'm sure she has been exposed to some of those things u asked about in the outdoors,…

Samantha on Suggested Raw Dog Foods Yes, I have tried it seems like everything. I'm thinking maybe she could be allergic to poultry maybe, idk! I'm at a loss

Lowne Wolfe on Pure Balance Dog Food (Dry) Pure Balance is the only dog food sold by wal-mart with a 4 star rating. Every other dog food sold at wal-mart is below 3, mostly 1 or 2. Sure would be nice if they sold better dog foods but I'm glad they at least sell one. No more 1star food (purina) for my pups! 4+ all the way :)

KDUB on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) I must backtrack, I have found an empty bag in garage. It WAS NOT A KIRKLAND BRAND FOOD, it was Pedigree. I'm sorry I did not check first.

Hater & Molly's Mom on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) Would it be ok to mix this with kibble?

Hater & Molly's Mom on Dry Matter Basis — A Better Way to Compare Dog Foods Have you called them for some samples? I just got some samples for my two girls and they were very generous. Nice size samples!

KDUB on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) We had been using the golden colored bag of Kirkland (we too dump it in a container, so forget what kind) for the last 5 months. About 2 1/2 weeks ago Our dog (13 months) also started itching like crazy. At first I thought maybe fleas, but couldn't find any. Never even occurred to me it could be a food allergy until a pet store mentioned it. I now have him on Holistic Select (Aussie brand). He's been on it for 9 days and he is much better. Still itching but not much compared to what he was.…
