Susan on Off Topic Discussions Hi I wouldn't be feeding Bully Sticks especially if
she vomited it up 4 days later that means she or he
didn't digest it, Go to the butcher & get some nice raw meaty bones they will probably chew & chew the meat off the bone slowly & be cleaning their teeth at the same time & enjoy a meaty bone more.....April 21, 2015 5:51 am
HurpDurp on Alpo Dog Food (Dry) Check it yourself. Thousands of people online have reported their dogs becoming severely ill and even dying as the direct result of poising after using Purina dog products. There is even an ongoing lawsuit against them right now.April 21, 2015 3:55 am
aimee on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) The back portion of the first mandibular molar occludes with the maxillary first molar. By flattened I mean that the occlusal surface area of the tooth will be near the same area as the base of the tooth. The teeth however are not completely flat just as our molars are not flat and a bears are not flat either. They all have cusps.
From the same paper "The dog is typical of its genus, Canis, in its relatively unspecialized dentition..."
Here is a description of dentition in which the dog was…April 20, 2015 11:43 pm
The Dachshund Gang's Mama on Kasel Recalls Multiple Brands of Dog Treats Due to Salmonella The way I got over that problem was I bought a food dehydrator..
I bought nothing but chicken breasts and I made my own. I make enough for the week . duck and lamb are too fatty.... I occasionally make them beef slacks but it has to be at least 85 percent fat free.
So if you know what you're doing just do your own.April 20, 2015 11:12 pm
aimee on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Used to??? Huh?? Are you trying trying to tell me that the earth isn't flat?April 20, 2015 11:03 pm

DogFoodie on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) From what I could find, your Ol' Roy probably has around 275 kcals per cup. It would take just under 12 cups per day of your Ol' Roy to feed just your St. Bernard, or you could feed him about 7.5 cups per day of Victor Hi Pro Plus with 429 kcals per cup. Victor is a nutrient dense, five star food. You can usually buy a 40 pound bag of Victor grain inclusive food locally for $39.99. Victor has very few controversial ingredients, compared to your Ol' Roy, which is made up almost entirely of…April 20, 2015 8:09 pm
Christine Daley on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) Hi crazy 4 dogs. Just confirmed mr chewy has the new ziwi peak formula without the carrageenan. It's $53.99 for 12 cans!! April 20, 2015 7:35 pm
Dog_Obsessed on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Thanks for clarifying! I thought that the bag had said "by the makers of Ol' Roy at some point. I thought that maybe the person was talking about Pure Balance when they "a good Ol' Roy," because I didn't understand how any kind of Ol' Roy could be good.April 20, 2015 5:39 pm
CousinVinny on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Hi, well my Saint Bernard weighs 200 lbs. and it is not fat, my Jacksonville Hound is about 145 lbs. and he can clear a six foot fence from a standing jump , my little girl the Bull Terrier weighs 65 lbs. and she is all muscle!!!
That is were I believe 150 lbs. of dog food goes, And I run them everyday...April 20, 2015 5:03 pm
Shawna on Grandma Lucy’s Pureformance (Freeze-Dried) Got it.... Yeah, that makes sense. The heating is not causing the change but rather the heating and liquid content combined. ThanksApril 20, 2015 4:51 pm
Shawna on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) I wouldn't call any part of the first molar flat in the picture you've provided - at least not when compared to the flat molars of the bear, ape and human.
So are they classifying wolves as omnivores too now?
Bear skull (the ape appears even more human like imo).April 20, 2015 4:25 pm
DogFoodie on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) Interesting, Nature's Variety has always gotten back to me... even when I asked them about their rabbit sourcing for the first time more than two years ago.
But, I guess if you found the information on the internet, then it must be true, right?April 20, 2015 3:48 pm
Diana on Canidae Life Stages Dog Food (Dry) Wanted to follow up on this comment. I fed my two dogs chicken and rice through the week and they immediately got better.
Then one day I ran out of rice and chicken and since I had nothing better I served this food. "It's just kibble" I thought. "Somebody who knows better than me designed this food" I thought. By evening I was mopping up piles of vomit.
I've served my dogs everything, from canned Alpo to Orijen, and this takes the cake.April 20, 2015 3:40 pm
aimee on Grandma Lucy’s Pureformance (Freeze-Dried) Ok I think I know what you are asking, that occurs after gelatinization, as the starch is cooled it undergoes retrogradation.
That's why I was confused as I said in the post that the starch wasn't gelatinized, which is why it is still called raw.April 20, 2015 3:29 pm
Rammsteinfan on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) Paul V try Fromms gold large breed puppy, my dogs love it and their coats are beautiful. Congratulations and good for you for getting a rescue pup. DianeApril 20, 2015 3:19 pm
Rammsteinfan on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) Hater and Molly's mom, I hope you are right. I found this info on chinese rabbits just yesterday on Google. I was going to switch my dogs to NVI but when I read that and also about dogs and cats getting diarrhea from this over priced food I thought better of it. I also sent numerous messages to NVI headquarters with guess what NO RESPONSE, what are they hiding could it be Chinese rabbits skinned alive and toxic. Good luck with your "french" rabbits.April 20, 2015 3:15 pm
Dori on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) I use their raw in rotation.April 20, 2015 2:16 pm

Crazy4cats on The Truth About Corn in Dog Food I think a lot of pet store employees are under the impression that a customer picks a food and sticks with it forever. I believe if you are feeding a food that has corn in it in your rotation and not everyday forever, it will not cause any harm as long as your dog does not have an intolerance to it. If I remember correctly, you are constantly switching foods. So, your pup should be just fine!April 20, 2015 1:51 pm

DogFoodie on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) Mine too.April 20, 2015 12:48 pm
aimee on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Yes Shawna,
We can see that in the dog as well. The largest tooth in the bottom jaw is the first molar. The front end of the tooth is pointy and the back portion flattened.
In the upper jaw the first molar is also a very large tooth, triangular on flattened surface. Hard for me to say which tooth is larger the fourth premolar vs the 1st molar.
Those that classify such things report the teeth of the wolf as the same as the dog, jackals coyotes etc.
"However, the dentition of the modern wolf…April 20, 2015 12:43 pm
Hater & Molly's Mom on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Ol Roy is manfactured by Doane Pet Food owned by Mars pet food who makes Pedigree for one as well as many other not so good brands. Pure Balance is manfactured. By Ainsworth a reputable manufacturer. Didnt want anyone thinking they were one of the same. April 20, 2015 12:32 pm
Hater & Molly's Mom on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) NVI No longer gets their rabbit from China. Its from France now and has been for some time. Natures Variety is a wonderful food and its a firm part of my girls rotation.April 20, 2015 12:21 pm
DogFoodie on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) If your dogs were eating a better, more nutrient dense food, they wouldn't be eating 150 pounds per month.April 20, 2015 12:20 pm
sharron on The Truth About Corn in Dog Food i've been told that if i continue to feed a dog food that contains corn my dog will eventually develop problems down the road, when i ask what problems will develop they're not able to give specifics - does anyone know what they are talking about - these are people at pet stores - thanksApril 20, 2015 12:16 pm
Veracifier on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Vegan, no. But dogs are most definitely omnivores. The teeth argument is meaningless. Here is a gorilla. It is an herbivore:

Rammsteinfan on Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost (Dry) Buyer beware of Nature's Variety foods. They contain rabbit imported from China and we all know about the perils of buying anything from there. Nature's Variety is an overpriced dangerous food that any animal lover should avoid. Not only it has the potential to be toxic, the method the chinese use to kill the animals is extremely cruel, skinned alive, clubbed etc. If you care about your pet which you must if you pay the extremely high price of Nature's Variety you will find a different food…April 20, 2015 10:59 am
Shawna on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) "Meat And Bone Meal, Ground Yellow Corn, Ground Wheat, Corn Gluten Meal, Animal Fat[Preserved With BHA And Citric Acid], Wheat Middlings, Soybean Meal, Natural Flavor, Salt"
Those are the first few ingredients in Ol' Roy High Performance. There's lots wrong with this ingredient list but I'd like to focus on just two of the ingredients -- meat and bone meal and animal fat.
The FDA says that these two ingredients can be contaminated with the euthanasia drug pentobarbital. Here's the quote from…April 20, 2015 10:06 am
Shawna on Grandma Lucy’s Pureformance (Freeze-Dried) Sorry, I'm remembering a conversation way back with DogGoneFedUP about one of those (I think amylose) converting to resistant starch when heated and then cooled. We were talking about different varieties of potato and how some with more amylose (if that is the correct one) converts to resistant starch if heated and then cooled.
Do you know if amylopectin is affected by the heating and/or cooling process?April 20, 2015 9:48 am
Shawna on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) I thought about a human's molars. Mine are the largest teeth in my mouth. I looked at the molars of other omnivores such as a gorilla and bear and they too have molars that are larger than all other teeth. Although the canine has flat(ish) molars, I don't know how effective they would be at breaking up cellulose in plant matter?
I then looked at a wolf's teeth. Same molars as the dog. Are they now designating wolves as omnivores too? If not, why not?April 20, 2015 9:41 am
CousinVinny on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Thank you for your information, Ol' Roy makes this also... Ol' Roy: Dog High Performance Food , this is the one I have been feeding my dogs. They are all very big and healthy, active dogs. I don't know I think no matter what brand we use someone won't like it. Also my dogs eat 150 lbs. of food a month!!!April 20, 2015 9:17 am
Jana Miller on Best Dry Grain Free Dog Foods This is what my vet recommended.
April 20, 2015 7:51 am
aimee on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Yes they could be used for bones as well as plant matter. I find it interesting that the molars are absent/reduced in the animal I've always thought of as the ultimate bone crushing carnivore, the hyena.April 20, 2015 6:40 am
el doctor on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Hi aimee
The flattened molars of a dog and a wolf are used for crushing the bones of prey as well as for chewing.April 20, 2015 1:21 am
mary on Propylene Glycol — Dog Food Aid or Automotive Antifreeze? I lost my poodle in October. I did not know about this additive. I usually fed her another brand. within two weeks of ingestion she was gone. my heart aches she had never been sick a day in her life. is this a good thing for our pets? the company says it's safe. so why have so many become sick and or died?April 20, 2015 12:42 am
Lucy Hennessey on Pure Balance Grain Free (Dry) ok i just switched to pure balance and was curious who made it. i called the 800 number on the bag and it was walmart. she asked me for the bar code number and other numbers around the bar code and she told me it was made by Ainsworth, BUT if you go to Ainsworth web site there is no mention of pure balance and that they make it. Has me worried and hoping its not made by ole roy as other's claim. I just called on Friday. So after reading these comments I am now suspicious of Pure Balance. I…April 19, 2015 11:14 pm
Dog_Obsessed on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Ol' Roy food is definitely not high-quality. Reference the review above. However, the makers of Ol' Roy also make Pure Balance, which is a good food.April 19, 2015 10:32 pm
DogFoodie on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) That's good. I prefer to rotate brands also. One of mine had Fromm with eggs and berries this morning and the other had Nature's Variety Instinct LID with eggs and some leftover turkey. They both had THK for dinner. One got Halcyon and the other Thrive. Breakfast tomorrow is yet TBD, but has to be quick so it'll be kibble with a canned topper.

Allie on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) I have a 16 lb terrier mix he's about 8 years old, I am looking for a senior diet with high protein, no grains, low calories, low in fat and carbs (he puts on the weight fast if he eats to much) I currently feed him blue buffalo senior 1/4 cup twice a day (if he had thumbs he would eat all day long). Just wondering if orijen or Acana is a good senior diet or is there others out there? Suggestions Please.April 19, 2015 10:22 pm
aimee on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Dogs are fairly non selective dietary generalists. This is one of the reasons they end up in the ER so often as opposed to cats! The dentition is considered mixed as the molars in the back are flattened.April 19, 2015 10:14 pm
aimee on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) You're welcome!April 19, 2015 10:13 pm
LadyMephisto on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) Thanks - I rotate her meat patties (which she gets for her 6:00pm meal). I didn't mention this above, but I also rotate between Force and Keen. Aimee (belie) provided the link for a nutritional analysis of Force. April 19, 2015 10:04 pm

CousinVinny on Ol’ Roy Dog Food (Dry) Yes they have a High Quality Ol'Roy that I have been feeding my Saint Bernard, Jacksonville Hound, and Bull Terrier , she is 12 years old. and btw when I see all the dog food recalls it is usually for the "so-called" better brands???April 19, 2015 9:35 pm
DogFoodie on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) That's precisely the reason why a lot of posters here choose to feed a rotational diet. April 19, 2015 9:32 pm
Norine Perry on Gravy Train Dog Food (Dry) i feed this to my dog every day she will not eat the so called name brands for ex she hates alpo, pedigree, and i eaven went so far as to go to petsmart she would not touch it but one thing i can say about cheap dog food is every dog has a different reaction to them. ever pet makes her sick and gives her very bad gass. but i know people who have fed that stuff to there dogs for years and the dogs are fine.April 19, 2015 9:26 pm

Mike Sagman on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Linda T,
In your comment you sound surprised that we do not test every one of the recipes in our database.
Think about it. How could that be possible?
Testing every one of the more than 4,100 recipes on this website on an ongoing basis would take hundreds of technicians, thousands of man hours and cost tens of millions of dollars.
In fact, no one -- not even the U.S. government -- has the budget or resources to test every recipe and batch of pet food produced.
As we clearly state on our…April 19, 2015 8:33 pm

Jeanne on Off Topic Discussions Thank you for the link! April 19, 2015 7:36 pm
LadyMephisto on Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated) My dog (Boston Terrier) loves Hk's Force (Chicken, grain-free). Because this is her 2nd year of eating this, I really need to know the vitamin & mineral content if I'm going to continue her on this food. I also feed her raw beef, venison & buffalo meat patties made locally (for dogs) so I'm hoping that she's getting a balanced diet - but without a list of minerals & vitamins I'll never know for certain. April 19, 2015 7:28 pm
Christine Daley on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) Hi crazy 4 dogs. Thanks for your reply. Anyway like I mentioned ziwi peak is apparently removing carrageenan from its canned formulas. April 19, 2015 7:20 pm
theBCnut on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Your dog's symptoms sounded more like a brain tumor than a dog food issue, however I completely agree with you about the desire to have Diamond drop off the surface of the planet.April 19, 2015 7:04 pm
Crazy4dogs on Orijen Dog Food (Dry) Yeah, I'm not really happy about that. It seems like they alway use either potato starch, guar gum or carragenan to thicken the "sauce". I wish they would pull it out altogether. I try to avoid it as much as possible and since my dogs are only getting 1/4 of their food from cans, it's not in there often.
Ziwi peak should be a good choice, but @ between $4-5/can it's way too costly for me.
That's why I rotate raw and fresh cooked with a premix.April 19, 2015 6:11 pm
LindaT on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) Dogs are not naturally omnivores. They are carnivores. Look at their teeth...any of them have flat surfaces? No. There ya go. The vegetable material the canids in the wild would eat is limited to contents of the gut of the prey. Any person who would force their dog to be a vegan should be arrested for animal cruelty. A loon.April 19, 2015 5:53 pm

LindaT on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) You made some great points. Another thing to remind people of is that Dog Food Advisor has become the Holy Grail of dog food evals but I think faith in it is misplaced...They do NOT test the contents of any of the 940 varieties of dog food, dry and canned. DFA only evaluates the contents based on what is printed on the bag...who in this day and age has any confidence in the authenticity of marketing material when there is no penalty for lying or being wrong?

LindaT on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) How could you possibly think that a 17 year old dog is dead because he ate bad dog food unless you had a necropsy done that established the cause of death. Aren't there a handful of other possibilities? Something has to be to blame...isn't that just a human reaction? Haven't you heard that correlation doesn't mean causation? Again, I am sorry to anyone who loses a dog..I know how it effects me.April 19, 2015 4:57 pm
Crazy4cats on Off Topic Discussions Hi Dianna-
I give my two large dogs one bully stick per week, and have not had that proble. However... We attach vise grips to the very end of them in order to prevent them from gulping them down without chewing. It has worked great. Give it a try! April 19, 2015 4:23 pm
theBCnut on Earthborn Holistic Moist Dog Food (Tubs) These are essentially canned food and don't need refrigeration. They will probably be good for 6 months or even more, as long as the packaging remains intact.April 19, 2015 4:17 pm
theBCnut on Off Topic Discussions I personally have not had that issue, but any time a dog eats a dried treat that fast, they may not be chewing it properly, so moisture doesn't get to the inside of the treat and it remains hard and indigestible. That means it could be vomited back up or cause an intestinal blockage. Dogs that eat this way need to only have treats that are too small to be an issue or treats that are too large to be swallowed and monitoring for when the treat needs to be taken away.April 19, 2015 4:12 pm
Hema on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) My dog being seventeen had nothing to do with his death. That is the kind of straw that Diamond clutches at to disgustingly deny that they put out bad batches of dog food.

Storm's Mom on Taste of the Wild (Dry) TOTW Wetlands has only 22% of the kcal/cup that Victor Ultra Pro GF has, so Victor actually be cheaper to feed since the bag would last longer because you're feeding less at each meal. Wetlands has the highest kcal/cup of any TOTW variety, so if you're feeding another TOTW variety the Victor Ultra Pro GF would be an eve better buy. It's not always about how cheap the bag is, you have to factor in how much you are feeding per serving (kcal/cup).April 19, 2015 1:52 pm
ALV on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) Crazy4Dogs, see my comment above about the chickpeas. I wish these dog food manufacturers would quit putting chickpeas in foods as the latest fad. I've see other people on this site complain about chickpeas giving their dogs diarrhea.April 19, 2015 1:44 pm
ALV on Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain (Dry) Check the ingredients on the zero grain bags. RR's new version of this food, which is beef, has chickpeas in it as the third ingredient. Chickpeas give my dogs diarrhea and it may be that RR has now added chickpeas to the chicken and fish varieties of this food. This beef version has given two dogs that I am boarding diarrhea. They normally eat the fish version but the store was out of the fish so the owner picked up the beef. It has been quite the mess.April 19, 2015 1:41 pm

Shawna on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) The ones Dori is discussing don't actually heat the water. They use an ultrasonic pulse to diffuse the oil.

el doctor on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) Hi Dori
The ones I linked to don't add anything to the oils. This is from their website;
"Cold Diffusion™ technology preserves the natural essence and complete
therapeutic benefits of essential oils by effectively transforming them
into a micro fine vapor without the use of heat or water. These micro
particles permeate the air and may remain suspended for hours, fully
intact, with all of their NATURAL defenses against airborne Viruses,
Bacteria, Mold, Pests and Odors. Other common uses…April 19, 2015 12:40 am
Crazy4cats on Taste of the Wild (Dry) Hi Melissa-
How about Victor grain free kibble? Here is their site: http://www.victordogfood.com/dogfood.htmlApril 19, 2015 12:02 am
Dori on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) Thx el doctor. I presently have a large one from Young Living, one H2EO, a quooz. I'll look into the ones you have as I'm not completely thrilled with the ones I have. I keep thinking that with so many people diffusing EO's there's got to be something better out there. I diffuse everyday so I'm constantly having to add water and more oils. I like the cold water diffusers to diffuse oils closer to my dogs. Thx again for adding the web site.April 18, 2015 11:51 pm
Melissa on Taste of the Wild (Dry) I've been reading all these terrible things about TOTW, but really, can anyone suggest a better grain free dry food at a similar price point?
I am on a budget and TOTW locally is $40 for a 30 lb bag.
I wouldn't mind switching, but I have two huskies who eat bunches and have never had any bad reactions. April 18, 2015 9:51 pm
Shawna on Canidae Grain Free Pure (Dry) Aura Cacia used to make/sell ones like the "very quiet" one. I still have three of them (two smaller room size ones and one larger) -- pretty quiet. I just found it a hassle to change out the oils. Work really great though.
Edit --- here's what they look like (only all are gray)…April 18, 2015 9:39 pm

LindaT on Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Dry) I was reading this same post on the Consumer Complaints page....you did not mention in this post as you did in the other that your dog was seventeen years old...and many people do not realize that the complaints page has NOTHING to do with Consumer Reports or Consumers Guide...it is a highly suspicious website in my view, that collects random posts in order to gel a potential class action lawsuit. None of the people posting negative incidents have had necropsies done, so it is entirely…April 18, 2015 9:31 pm
