Yay I'm so glad!
My dogs eat Purina Dog Chow and
that brand is in the clear! I'm
happy that I know my dogs
are healthy thanks to that chart.

schmitzgirly94, that brand may be "in the clear" in regards to this particular contamination and very popular, but it's of really poor quality. do some reading on the topic.

Actually, the Purina Dog Chow isn't necessarily cleared: it has a 'no result.' But some of the Purina One brand (their version of a premium line) has been found to contain the contaminant.

And Mordy's right about the quality - as usual

that is correct however purina may seem to be good to some but it really is horrible and has bad ingredients... CORN is not digestible... anyway good luck on getting good foods

that's one of the numerous myths about dog food.

dogs can digest it just like any other types of grain. the problem with poor quality foods is that they use corn as a major source of protein, and plant protein is harder for dogs to digest than animal-based protein.

in a nutshell, if corn is combined with good quality meat in a kibble, the simple fact that it contains corn doesn't make it worse than one that has rice, oatmeal or whatever other grain.

Dogs need a balanced meal like humans. Humans are omnivores. We need a mixture of meats and vegetation. Dogs are carnivores. Their digestive tracts are designed to process meat. While they do need some vegetation to aid in digestion, the type and quality are very important. Fillers like brewer's rice and corn gluten (which are the shells of these grains) are primarily undigestible. Corn and soybeans are vegetative products used in many dog foods that are leading causes of allergies in dogs.

this right here shows your statement is incorrect and false... corn isnt digestible at all
