Diamond Naturals has really good ingrediants, in large 40lb bags reasonable priced. All of ours are on it, and for us it has been great. Except for Aussie, hes a five month old Australian Shepherd and hes on Chicken Soup for puppies.

What animal people? It gets on the shelves due to marketing...think about where you've heard of Purina, Iams, etc...on TV. Most places like humane societies endorse it because the companies give them some sort of incentive...such as donating to their cause, I know that was the case in one of the local shelters back home, they endorsed Pedigree because Pedigree gave them take home sample packs and donated food to them.

Also, if you're thinking any given brand that your Vet recommends must be good, that's incorrect as well. Vets are as bad as everyone else, they get money for referring customers to Science Diet and the like. Since most Vets are NOT trained in pet nutrition so they will recommend the brand with the highest offer. As much as we'd like to think Vets are the best authority on dogs and only want the best for them, this is usually not the case when it comes to food.

Just think of it this way...McDonald's has a lot of commercials and a lot of people eat there too, but that doesn't mean it's GOOD for you.

Unfortunately, because most people look at price and they look at advertising... without reading the ingredients. That includes their own food, not just their dogs. Why would grocery store people put twinkies on the shelves?

The difference is that YOU can buy YOURSELF a twinkie, and that is your own choice. But when YOU buy terrible, grain-laiden food for your dog... they have no other choice.

I recommend checking out: The Dog Food Project - How does your Dog Food Brand compare? AND the many great posts in the Food & Recipes section of Chaz.

Do not feed your dog with foods from manufacturing companies.They contain euthanasia that reduces the lifespan of your dog.Go for raw, dry or home made foods.
Take care
