    I am new to Dog Food Advisor. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time so if you can point me to past postings or other locations to answer my question, please feel free to do so. I have been using some of the Science Diet canned foods for years based originally on my Vets suggestion, such as Slim and Healthy, Grain free,Perfect weight. Also, Nutro Natural Choice Dry food. I was also recently at the Westminster Dog Club show in NYC and Purina Pro Plan had a large booth there. What are the issues or ratings regarding these? I do know that no one staffing the PUrina booth could answer where the chicken came from that was in their food. I ask these things to assess how poorly my dogs have been eating and because with 3 dogs I have to be conscious of cost as well. Thanks

    Most dry dog foods contain synthetic vitamins and minerals which are sourced almost entirely from industrial waste such as coal tar for one. Synthetics and chemicals are not easily absorbed or not absorbed at all, so the kidneys and the liver can become overtaxed trying to eliminate the toxic waste.

    Hi David,

    You will likely get varied opinions. As for myself I’ve found that the larger companies better meet my needs. Many companies simply market pet food. Sad as it is they don’t have nutritionists on staff, don’t invest in nutritional research and have little quality control.

    The foods you feed are some of the same that I feed, as I’ve used Hill’s S.D. And Purina Pro
    Plan with great success.
