What Bagel is apologizing for is the way the opinion was expressed and regrets that the opinion was expressed without having actually looked at evidence. It's a sign of her maturity and intelligence that she recognized this and wants to learn - even if what she learns is contrary to her original opinion.
Their senior food does have corn, so I wouldn't feed that, but Bench & Field Holistic Natural Canine Formula does not, and is a pretty good food. WDJ (very picky people when it comes to dogfood) even rate it one of the best.
i'm not a big fan of the bench & field products, not even the holistic type. too many grains, too many byproducts (tomato pomace, egg product, cheese meal) and at $45 for 26.4 lbs it is grossly overpriced.
if anyone has trouble finding a decent food and needs to order something online, cloudstar makes a really nice holistic kibble from all human-grade ingredients and if you order 2 boxes, shipping is free.
Thanks you all. My mom is convinced IAMS is still good. I did research on it, and watched an undercover video of an IAMS testing place. I almost cried, and it horrified me. I almost had to turn it off. And in one part they showed a little dog in a small metal cage, quietly laying their, watching the lady with the hidden camera, slowly wagging her tail. It broke my heart to see it. I told my mom about it and she didnt believe me. I offered to let her watch the video and she said no, but she still doesnt think its real. I know if she watched it, she would make me turn it off, becuase she can't watch things like that. She doesnt believe how cruel IAMS is, and wont listen to evidence that it is. Im going to keep working at it.
I know you'll do what you can. And we all understand what it's like to be young and living with your parents. I still can't convince my parents that Iams is bad for their cats although my mom is slowly becoming more open to it.
We all respect you and your efforts. At least you are open to doing research and finding out what is best for your pets. Even if you don't succeed with your parents you will be able to make changes as an adult. Or when you get a job.
I have a definite bias about Savory Sauce because I have a PR client, Elliot's Hound Sauce, which is the all natural, no preservatives sauce launched in January of this year. We've never had a complaint of Elliot's causing illness. It is possilble you were putting too much sauce on the food. We recommend only a tablespoon to "glaze" the food and add aroma and taste.
well...Elliot's sounds interesting, but I think I'd rather give a variety of foods so that you don't need to pour flavoring on the kibble. I'm always suspect of products claiming to have added vitamins and nutrients. Just like people....just eat the right food and you'll get proper nutrients. could just be me...I don't want to pour 'sauces' on my food either.
