Yay, it's all peas. I wanna feed that to my dog!!1!1

It's also just proof they're out for money. I mean, hey, if you truly believe your food with corn and by-products is the best food on the market, and that corn is good and nutritious for dogs (and have spent time defending that idea), why would you make grain-free food?

Oh wait. Money.

If I want a low-protein grain-free (and some folks do, for health reasons) I would easily choose Go over SD any day. Beet pulp. Ugh.

Yup, and TOTW Salmon is only 25% protein as well, and the ingredient list is much better.

That is ridiculously high carb still. Increase the fatm it is not going to make your dog fat (well it will if you feed to excess) but it is what makes your dog feel full. still about the protein levels more on par with an herbivore than a carnivore.

And considering what they charge for their regular foods, this should only be $120 a bag.

EXACTLY!!!!! We get freaking "Corn is AWESOME!!1!!1!!11" propaganda from Hills all the freaking time at work. If corn is so amazing, why take it out?

At least they kept the sawdust in. Can't lose the sawdust.

As a side note, my brother told me this would be coming out soon, but I honestly didn't believe him. He did however get in an argument with a Hills rep about what constitutes a grain. Apparently the rep claimed that corn is a vegetable, and not a grain
