Ok, you've told me its bad food, but again GIVE ME PROOF! My dogz are healthy, with shiny, beautiful coats, and all they eat is IAMS. So give me proof that overrules my proof of 5 healthy happy dogs, and then maybe ill look into other foods more. You say the ingerdients are crap, but my dogs are thriving on it, so they are oviously ok for dogs to eat, otherwise, youd think they would be sick, or have dull coats, or SOMTHING.

All it takes to figure it out is doing some research and being willing to learn. We've been through this with you before; the information is readily available if you care enough to look.

The testing issues alone would be enough to make me boycott Iams/Eukanuba. It was a profitable sales item at the pet supply store I patronize, but they discontinued all lines from the company and posted their reasons for ditching them. They've had very positive response from customers and I myself have overheard customers telling them how much improved their pets are since switching from the Iams/Eukanuba products to some that are actually premium foods - not just carrying a premium price tag.

Personally, I don't like feeling like a sucker for paying a premium price for a food that isn't premium at all. You'd be as well off feeding a much cheaper food - even Purina or Pedigree products - as paying the extra for something manufactured from essentially the same quality ingredients.

I wish we could get NaturaPet here - it's good to know that there are companies out there thinking about the actual animals and not just profit.

If I fed my dogs somthing else, IAMS wouldnt know. Its a sucsessful company, and no matter what anyone says, one person cant make a diffrent in this situation. Its oviously be tried many times already, and failed miserably. I know its wrong of IAMS, but it really doesnt matter if I feed my dogs it or not, because no one else is gonna feed it to there dogs cause of me.
Apathy like this is the single most dangerous cancer in our society.

Renee, Thank Dog. See how rumors get started...I can't even remember where I heard or read that other dogs foods use Iams lab. This is one reason I never say any thing to a customer unless I am 100% sure and I have it down in writing from a reputable source. The tongue is mightier than a sword.

That's rich, after calling the OP (who does seem to enjoy needling the anti-IAMS faction) cold-hearted. If you want a discussion rather than a conflict, don't call names.

Ok,get the facts straight. The original poster was not Bageldog. I was referring to b.d when I said that. She knows of the torment being held in such factories, yet she buys their food. That to me is cold-hearted.

I don't see how she can knowingly support animal abusers either.

Ok, lets look at it this way. She seems to still be young, living with her parents. Did you ever stop to think that maybe she has NO choice in the food she feeds her dogs? Yeah, I would stick up for myself too if someone was trying to put me down. I mean she has numerous dogs that are ALL doing fine on Iams, no health problems, why should she change? I mean if the dogs are obviously living a good life on this food what would be the point of changing when she has older dogs, most of them on Iams for their whole life? She obviously knows what was going on at the testing sites, she knows the ingredients, and she knows how everyone feels. JUST LEAVE IT ALONE! People should be free to feed their dogs whatever they choose and not have to worry about the harrassment of others becasue the food isn't "as nutritional" as theirs. Her dogs are surviving, and by the looks of the picture, are healthy. I thought this thread was about Pedigree anyway. Why does every thread here have to start an arguement?

Ideas collide and people(including me) are passionate about dogs. I dont know, maybe its just me but I still find it hard to believe someone willingly supports cruelty. I'll leave it alone only for the fact that this is a forum and nothing I say will change her mind.
