I would feed Raw foods, but my mom thinks it's to much protein and she doesn't need it because dogs arn't wolves anymore... I'm not going to argue with was hard enough to get her to switch Sam to Innova Evo let alone a raw diet my mother is crazy..

My dogs were eating Pedigree and similar brands up until 2 years ago but I know if I weren't educated that they'd still be eating it. Around that time I started working at a vet and my vet said my food was crap, so I switched them to Proplan, then to Purina OM for a year or so. Then I switched to Natural Balance last summer when I started joining pet message boards and learning more, and in January finally my parents agreed to let them eat raw (thank God!). Raw is definetly best, and I will never feed kibble again.

My first sheltie ever lived entirely on Kibbles & Bits . Now looking back it is so obvious why he had the weight problems and the teeth problems that he did.

Probably Eukanuba or Iams. I used to think Iams was an awesome food.

I'd probably go with Purina One or Pedigree. Infact, we did feed both for some time before I learned more on dog foods.

My first dog ate whatever was at the grocery store, mostly Kibbles & Bits. She lived to be 12-13, never had a sick day in her life, was never overweight or had any teeth or skin or coat problems. Not that a quality kibble isn't important, but I think it has to be kept in perspective.

And it isn't laziness with many people, but money. The extra cash to spend on either getting to a pet store that sells special food or on the special food itself just doesn't exist in some households.
