Question Vets All Natural...Good or bad?

Hey. We're getting our GS pup next week. Wooh hoo!! Anyway, she's been on fed Vets All Natural Complete Mix Puppies 0 2 years and raw bones since now. Is that a good food or bad? What do you guys think? Should we slowly get her into another type of food a little later? Or...? Thanks

I can't find the ingredients online, so hard to say I do worry about brands saying their food is healthy etc when they don't put the ingredients list online though.

Think you could post it?

Oh watch out though... The sites I saw say that you need to combine it with raw meat for a fully balanced diet... So it's definitely not good enough by itself.

If you want something easier and still say in the raw idea, you can try Innova EVO, although I don't think it's good for large breeds. Or Innova, wellness, canidae, eagle pack.

Bleh, I'm sure Mordy will be more helpful.

Posting the ingredients would help, Skyhigh . . . and congratulations on your new German Shepherd pup

EVO isn't something to feed a larger breed puppy. Innova now makes a large breed puppy food, or their all stages formula is very good as well.

It seems pretty good. Apperrantely, it's not a dog food, it's the vegetable and nutrients part of the BARF diet. All you do is add meat. Although it does not list the ingredients, these links should help.

Yeah I saw those links, I just don't trust what people say one bit, lol.

But I would worry a lot if the breeders only gave that to their dog, without meat. As a supplement, it's probably decent, but not if you don't feed anything else.

Well, he said the breeder is feeding him that and raw bones, so maybe he is feeding meat too.

Yeh, the breeder is adding raw meat to it. They said its $50 for 5kgs. That's quite a bit isn't it? I might gradually switch her to one of the foods you guys suggested. Thanks a LOT Fran, Beagle lovergirl and Renee. I don't know what the ingredients are. I'll do a search. But I'll probably be changing the food becaus I haven't seen the food around in pet shops and all. They gave me a mobile number of the supplier. Thanks again guys and for the links.
