What's your choice of dog food?

Postby Ruger » Tue Oct 14, 2008 12:44 pm

Ok, I've been reading tons of different postings on and off PBF trying to find the best dog food for my Ruger. It seems to come down to personal opinions, because everytime I find a brand that sounds good I find a few bad reviews for it stating it causes skin problems and a whole bunch of other things.
So I just wanted to know
WHAT'S YOUR CHOICE OF DOG FOOD?
If possible post pictures with your answers to show just how healthy your dog is on that brand.

:peace: Thanks for your participation!!! :peace:

Raw seems to agree with my 7 mo. old pup better than any other foods, and I've tried alot of them, all highly rated kibble, and canned. Once we switched to raw, Chance doesn't fart, his scratching has almost stopped, his poop is smaller and doesn't stink..ect, ect. Here's a link to the Primal food we feed him, he's now on beef.

Maddie is strictly on Natures Logic - she has had intestinal issues and it's the only food that works for her system. It's a really really good food - a bit pricey...But worth the "no squirts"
http://www.natureslogic.com/

Jake and Zoe do part raw part kibble.

Jake gets Evo, mixed with a little Innova Green, and a can of Innova.
Zoe gets Low fat Innova. Proud to say she is down to 55 lb!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On non kibble days - the dogs get a chicken quarter each. Also, Jake gets 3 or 4 Natures Variety medallions and Zoe gets 1 medallion.

Orijen Puppy, though switching to Raw in a few months
Honestly it is all opinion, some like high protein, some like high carbs.
The one thing I can say across the board with all food is just because one dog has skin issue or poop issues on a food doesnt mean that your dog will. Sometimes it is a matter of trial and error on your part to find one that is well balanced, not full of crap (like corn) and does well with your dog's system.

After reading some more I think I'm switching to Wellness brand first thing 2morrow. The Pedigree puppy formula I'm feeding him now has corn gluten in it, and is said to be very bad for your dog. I dont have the time for Raw right now. So what do you all think of wellness?

Change of plans, not all Wellness brands r grain free. And the ones that r r for dogs over 1 year old. So that leaves my Ruger out being as though he's only 12 weeks old.

I usually feed Taste of the Wild. Money is a little tight right now so the pack is getting Diamond Naturals. If money was no object, I would go back to RAW, hands down.

How much is Taste of the Wild?
Now i think its between Natures Variety & Taste of the Wild. Because Timberwolf is way 2 much.

I can go to the store and pick up a 30lbs bag for $41.99

Right now we're doing Diamond Naturals (made by the same company) and we can get a 40lbs bag for $31.99

Oh okay. In your opinion is Taste of the Wild better than Natures Variety? Imma probably have to order which ever one I decide to switch to off line because none of the stores close to me sells them. Thats y im trynna be sure about which one i pick b4 i try it.

They are both good foods. It all just depends on what you think your dog will do best on, what you can afford, availability, etc. Usually you have to go through trial and error to come up with a food that will work best for your dog.
