Biggest difference, get ready for this.... most adult formulas just make AAFCO minimums for adult dogs, and won't pass AAFCO minimums for puppies. roflmao Gimmick is all it is. Large breed puppy will have reduced calcium sometimes, but the bottom line is, feed a good food to your pup, or dog, and it...

All of my dogs have done their best on TW. It seems to take about two months see really see the results. After the first month the gas seems to go away. Also if you over feed, they will over poop. roflmao here is my last shipment from TW. :peace: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b140/hoss3430/threa...

One hard pull and the heavy duty flexi goes pop!. I wish someone would make a decent flexi type leash. It would be great when the dogs wander into the lakes/ponds/rivers.

Gator gets 1.5 cups a day when he is not worked too hard, 2 cups when we abuse the crap out of him. He weighs in at 45-48 pounds. Rose gets 1 cup a day and is about the same weight. She rarely ever gets worked, lol she is a lazy bitch.!

Orijen= 60g protein per cup, 24g fat per cup

Your food= 31.5g protein per cup, 16.5g fat per cup

:thumbsup:


But that is only 1/2 the equation. You need to know how many cups needed to maintain the dog in order to make a comparison.

I have explained it before, but here it is again, but I will try a different approach. Dog food A. contains 20% protein. you need to feed 4 cups a day to a 60# dog. That means, 20% of 4 cups, which is 600 grams of food times 20% = 120 grams of protein. Thats the total daily intake, for brand A. dog ...

Misskiwi67, good info, but, lol, one problem. The % of protein does not make much difference, it is the total amount of grams of protein that makes the difference. 20% protein, feeding 4 cups, is the same protein as 40% protein at 2 cups. So saying that over 30% is a waste is not accurate at all. Yo...
