I want to say this, which may have been said. My future SIL dad is a vet. A very good one I feel too. his son, SIL, thinks differnt dog foods are bunk. One of my french bull dogs has a algery(sp) that causes her to break out in black bumps that are like pimples. In trying differnt foods, we feel it is corn. If you read the dog food ingredients the first one or in the top 5 is corn. Corn, corn. we found some dog food that did not contain corn, and it made a real difference . I think it was Solid Gold Hund-n-Flocken. I think it was very good food, but the place that carried it stopped. This is a real problem in rual Texas. No ones carries it that is close. We have gone to a lamb and rice kibble, but we have not been real happy with it.

We make a large portion of the food that we feed from scratch. It seems to do good with our rescue dogs and our own too.

Just my 2 cents

Richard

i disagree. yes, you should feed your dog food that's good for him...but not everyone can get your "holistic brands" where they live...and shipping dog food isn't exactly cheap. my dogs food is not "poison"...as a matter of fact it was one of the FEW listed that said ther was "no phenobarbitol" in the food (none of the varieties of the dog food we use had pheno in it). just because you can afford to get expensive holistic food, doesn't mean everyone else that can't are "supporting cruel and pointless animal testing".

regardless of what others have been saying about purina...i still use it...it's been good so far, and i haven't had any problems with it. if you want, you can go to purina's website and find out exactly what all those ingredients in your dogs food are and what they are for.....each person has their own opinions on what dog food is the best.

And Mordy's right about the quality - as usual

it said "no" and the article said if it states "no" then it means none was found. i don't know where you were looking, but all the purina's i saw all had a "no" beside it...not "no result".

just because you think someone is right doesn't mean everyone else does...

corn isnt digestible anyway you cut it in humans or dogs
The two most common myths about corn are that corn it is not digestible, and that it is an allergen. These two statements are very misleading to the public and NOT true. According to "Small Animal Clinical Nutrition", 4th Edition," corn is 91% digestible. This immediately dispels the myth that corn is not digestible. The story goes... look at how corn comes out when we eat corn on the cob (or some variation on the same crude story), so it can't be very digestible. The reason an ingredient list for pet food says "ground corn" instead of just "corn" is because whole corn is finely ground before it is added to the food. The outer layer of the corn kernel is impervious to stomach acid and grinding the corn is necessary to expose the very digestible inner part of the kernel to the digestive process. Unfortunately, there are people that would rather sell their "corn free" product than to give out correct information. Interestingly, many of these companies do not have access to the corn growing states. The most basic research can attest to the high digestibility of ground corn. Why feed corn?


Corn is 91% digestible
Corn is one of the best sources of linoleic acid
Corn oil is one of the best sources of Omega 6 fatty acid (great for skin and coat)
Corn provides essential amino acids and fiber.
"Corn is nutritionally superior grain compared with others used in pet foods because it contains a balance of nutrients not found in other grains." - Small Animal Clinical Nutrition 4th edition

now...what was all that about corn being no good and non digestible??

this right here shows your statement is incorrect and false... corn isnt digestible at all
Canids include the dogs, foxes, coyote and wolf. While all are members of the order Carnivora, most are not, strictly speaking, carnivores. The retention of functional crushing teeth behind the carnassials enables them to eat a variety of foods, and the canids are omnivores.
