I decided to join this site after my took had diarrhea from a substandard dog food I fed him because I had it and I knew he was hungry. The brand Cesar’s. This is at least the second time I have done this and things went from bad to worse. About an hour later this 6 pound Service Dog, highly trained to assist me had a seizure. Coincidence? I do not think so. In between the gastric problem and the seizure I joined and added Editor’s Choice. I figured the price of joining is worth the health of my service dog. I was reading up about the nutritional value of Cesar’s and about what dog foods contained and my heart sunk. I had no idea that dog food manufacturers could use what they use in food. My dog will never consume anything substandard ever again and I can thank this web site for that. Thank you for what you do for our dogs. I am sure you are responsible for saving many dog’s lives and improving their quality of life as well. I am the moderator of two large Facebook sites and promoted the site to them. Any dog lover needs to join and read up. The life you save maybe your dog’s lifeDecember 11, 2014 at 2:48 pm #59858 Report AbusepugmomsandyModerator
It’s amazing what we don’t know about dog food and the dog food industry, isn’t it? Until someone points us in the right direction.December 11, 2014 at 2:49 pm #59859 Report Abusecrazy4catsParticipant
Welcome to Dog Food Advisor, Robert. This is a great resource for a dog’s health. I keep saying to myself, that I wish I knew then what I know now with my previous dog. But at least I’m doing better now with our current pups. It has helped me tremendously. I’m glad that you see it’s value as well!December 11, 2014 at 3:07 pm #59863 Report AbuseDog_ObsessedMember
Welcome to DFA! This site has tremendously helped me as well. The only problem is I’ve realized that “ignorance is bliss” has never been more true than when it comes to seeing what other people feed their pets. I still haven’t found a polite way to say “that food sucks,” so I usually just refer them to this site. 😀December 12, 2014 at 3:42 am #60060 Report AbuseDoriMember
Let me chime in also and say Welcome to DFA! Dr Mike and his site DFA has saved many dogs not only from near death but untold illnesses. His dog food site has made us aware that the quality of our dogs health and life will never be achieved by simply tossing some grocery store kibble in a bowl and calling it a day. Not only has he afforded us the information on hundreds of dog foods but there are also so may beneficial articles and threads on other areas of nutrition. Oh! And did I mention all the wonderful friends you make here. I love DFA. Don’t know how my dogs and I would survive and thrive without Dr Mike and all he does for our dogs. Frankly I don’t know how he finds the time but I’m sure glad he does. Thank you Mike from me, Hannah, Katie and Lola. We are in your debt.
