Default New Purina Busy Bone

Bagel and Busters rating: 4 paws up!

They loved it! The loved the smell, the taste and the feel of the bone. Its a softer bone, so its not going to take long for them to demolish, but they absoutally loved it. Even though I know most of your feeling about Purina, I say you should try this, at least once, and see how much your dog loves it! Just wanted to let you know the boys loved em.

why waste all that money on useless products like that if you can get real, healthy bones for pennies a pound?

i'd like to remind people again to check out the ingredients on this kind of product. here's the ingredient list for the purina "busy bones":

rice - cheap base material, often feed grade (mold contaminated)
wheat flour - feed grade, basically amounts to "floor sweepings"
glycerin - humectant, sweetener
tricalcium phosphate - chemically refined calcium/phosphorus supplement
poultry by-product meal - unknown parts of unknown birds
gelatin
hydrogenated starch hydrolysate - chemically altered starch product
sugar - sweetener
brewers dried yeast
dried beef stock
beef tallow
wheat gluten - the "sticky" protein part of the wheat grain, a common allergen
added color (Yellow 5, Red 40, Blue 1, Yellow 6 and other color) - artificial*
hydrogenated cottonseed oil - chemically altered fatty acids, very unhealthy
salt - flavoring agent
animal digest - unknown parts of unknown animals, highly processed, could be everything including roadkill
phosphoric acid - flavoring agent, used e.g. in coca cola. out of place in a product for pets.
sorbic acid - a preservative
vitamin supplements (E, A, B-12, D-3),
zinc sulfate,
ferrous sulfate,
manganese sulfate,
natural and artificial flavors
niacin,
riboflavin supplement (Vitamin B-2),
calcium pantothenate,
biotin,
copper sulfate,
thiamine mononitrate (Vitamin B-1),
folic acid,
menadione sodium bisulfite complex - artificial vitamin K, linked to many health problems and allergic reactions
pyridoxine hydrochloride (Vitamin B-6),
calcium iodate,
sodium selenite

* see definitions and risks here

why would someone want to pay good money for such a poor quality product? it's really sad.

Get over that I dont care. My dogs love them, and it doesnt hurt them or kill them, they like them and have fun eating them. I posted this to say my dogs like them, and it had no ill effects.

get over it that i will share my opinion on all this overprocessed garbage, so that the people who do care are aware of the way the pet food industry misleads consumers.

your dog may be fine now, and you may not care, but 3, 5 or 10 years down the road things can look quite different.

when i was your age, i didn't care about junk ingredients in my food either and stuffed my face with all kinds of popular snack foods and washed them down with drinks that are essentially nothing but water with some artificial flavors and colorings. eventually i learned more about nutrition and that i'm not doing my body a favor. maybe you'll arrive at the same conclusion some time in the future.

No, you posted it to get an argument. Get over acting obnoxious. There's no reason for you to act like this now; you didn't in the past.
