Do you mean Pedigree Chum? If you've read the ingredients list then you'll see, its not good, they add colouring to the food to make it brown!! Especially the treats they make, full of sugar and crap. I believe Pedigree only has 4% meat deritives. Does that sound good to you? Have a look at Mordy's website, she explains how you can learn to find out which dog foods are good, by reading and understanding the ingredients list. I think her website is great, I spent ages looking in my petshop for a suitable dog food, after visiting her website, because at the end of the day, I only want to feed shadow food that is the best and good for her.

Pedigree isn't a good food at all, in my opinion. Corn and by-products.

I think "frightening" would be an appropriate adjective . . .

No, they don't know they should care . . . that's up to you to care enough to not feed them toxic waste.

Check out this product wizard on the Natura site. This will give you an idea of what the products really are. Pedigree is cheap and unhealthy.

http://www.naturapet.com/display.php?d=ingr-wiz

Example: in Pedigree there is MEAT AND BONE MEAL (NATURAL SOURCE OF CALCIUM) - Meat Meal or Meat & Bone Meal is the rendered product from mammal tissues, with or without bone, exclusive of any added blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents except in such amounts as may occur unavoidably in good processing practices.

Most people associate this ingredient with beef. The truth is that it can come from any mammal: pigs, goats, horses, rabbits, rendered animals from shelters, and dead animals found on roads. Meat meal can contain condemned parts and animals that are rejected for human consumption, including '4D' animals: dead, diseased, dying, or disabled. It can include pus, cancerous tissue, and decomposed (spoiled) tissue. This inexpensive ingredient found in many commercial pet foods cannot be considered part of a safe, healthy diet for pets.


Pretty scary what goes into pedigree, I would never feed it to any of my dogs. Road kill I found on the side of the road I would consider before I would consider Pedigree

They may not care....they may even like eating junk....but it's not good for them. Just because a kid doesn't complain about eating only Pop-Tarts, potato chips and Coca-Cola his whole life doesn't mean it's good for him.
