Re: Dog food question

Everyones opinion is going to be different, but I would buy another bag of blue. If it all gets eaten up really well, then it would be worth it to take a loss on the food than to try and make your dog eat some food it really doesnt like. If it would make you feel any better donate the rest of the fo...

That's glad to hear. The muscle tone loss could be from switching from a 30/20 food to a 26/18 food. But I do like the byproduct grain free food because of the ingredients and that it has glucosamine and condronamin (sp) in it. Omega 3 and 6, flax seed oil and yucca extract in it. I guess I will hav...

Do better? How, digestively, or coat-wise? Their coats were a little shinier, but the main thing is that they kept their stamina longer while hunting in the. woods and kept their weight on better. They are loosing a little bit of their muscle tone and I am having to feed them more on the by-product...

corn is higher in protein and therefore more likely to cause food allergies. True food allergies are rare in dogs and generally not a concern. Both are highly digestable and excellent ingredients when fed as a whole ground ingredient in appropriate proportions to other sources of protein, fat, carb...

Corn -vs- Rice

The food my dogs devaour (sp) and love has corn in it but the natural lines my supplier carries are all anti-cor...

How did you find out that TOTW was part of Diamond foods? I am just curious, because my local supply sells alot of Diamond and Black Gold foods. They also sell the TOTW. It makes you wonder if they put the same food in all the bags :oops: . I want to believe them but then look at how people market s...

Oh I see now. Thanks for clearing that up. That makes since explained that way, I guess the only thing now is that when it says "meat meal" is to wonder that the "meat" is! I will probally try the TOTW venison and bison or the duck for a while, since it has good quality meat, veg...

I am trying to stay away from by-product ingredients, but even the most expensive food I can find in town (TOTW 30lbs for about $37) still has fish meal or venison meal) I guess as long as I stay away from by-products and certain ingredients as the first labeled thats all I can do until I find a bet...

I have another question about the TOTW food and other foods also. When it claims in the ingredients that it has meat meal, or venison meal, or any meat with meal behind it, what exactly does that contain? I have looked and asked at local pet stores and vets and have still not found a definite answer...

i went outside one day and my dog had welps all over her and her face was swelling shut. By the time I rushed her to the hospital, her eyes were almost swelled shut and was having a hard time breathing. We never figured out what it was, maybe a bee sting or somthing. Its the scariest thing you will ...
