while i currently still do read the WDJ, i'm not going to renew my subscription once it runs out.

these people do not seem to realize that with such an attitude they are not going to get any new subscribers. and besides that, "solely supported by subscriptions" my ass - they sell the addresses of all their subscribers and once you subscribe you will be bombarded by junk mail. not email spam, but paper that you actually have to throw out.

That's good to know about the mailing lists, Mordy.

I sent them a return e-mail confirming that I'd removed the article and [politely] expressing my dismay at their dog-in-the-manger attitude. It's not like it was even a current article!

At any rate, you know how much we appreciate your hard-earned knowledge and your generous sharing.

Hi, I've been gone a while and read most of this stuff last nite. I apologize for causing quite a commotion. I kinda knew it might be a problem, but I wanted to get the info out quick. I gave as much information about the article's originator as possible hoping this would make of for it. Your right Renee750il, it was an older article, similar to one they post on an annual basis. I even gave WDJ a bunch of cudos. ~So much for that. I'll be more careful in the future.

I got my Sam,a blck Shih-Tuz at 4mths aside from how the pevious owner had treated him,i watched him constantly up heave any kind of processed dog food. a rash on his tummy Then started with the digging,then his hair was falling out.the vet. told me it was fleas,thank god i didn't believe him.So, at a young age he became a vegetarian of sorts.I cook his food he eats no more processed food.He eats well cooked chicken,fish,all veggies,and some fruits.He gets no fillers like rice,i use everyday spices like we would use on our food,very little salt.Some would say he is spoiled,but, i don't have a sick dog anymore,and $200 vet. bills.He also gets olive oil, a teaspoon in his food once a day.His visit back to the vet for a rabies shot brought me a mad vet.who had to admit he is very healthy,and hated to admit he could have been wrong.An didn't sell me a $10 bag of "this is good for him" dog food.Please watch what your vet is doing,and the fod makers,sometimes momma knows best.A friend of mine lost her dog, her heart stopped, the vet was pumping her so full of drugs. Don't trust everything you are told,it's your dog,you live with it an see the symptoms every day.

Good going, Helen! Just because someone got through vet school doesn't mean they know everything. The good ones admit they don't always know!

I have one dog on a prescription diet by orders of the veterinarian, one on "Breeder's Choice-Active Formula (chicken meal & rice)," and my youngest is on "California Natural-Chicken Meal & Rice" mixed with "Pinnacle" wet food. I buy all of these from a dog boutique whom I patronize regularly and claims that they only carry the highest quality foods/treats. I have had tremendous luck with all of my dog's diets, especially the "California Natural." I was wondering if anybody had any information regarding these foods. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

The California Natural is made by NaturaPet, the same people who make Innova and Karma, and you can't get any better quality - or ethics, for that matter. I don't know Breeder's Choice or anything about Pinnacle.

If the prescription diet food is made by Hills/Science Diet you're getting scammed, pure and simple. The quality is deplorable, but you're paying the kind of prices you'd pay for food that actually had nutritive value.

Why don't you start a thread with your question about the foods. Mordy can probably tell you exactly what you want to know. You should check out her website too. You'll learn how to see through the arcane hogwash on most dog food labels.
