I've been trying to up Rosie's food quality, which will hopefully help out with some of her skin sensitivities. Would you mind, Barb, telling me your opinion of a food I just bought, Solid Gold Hund n' Flocken? These are the ingredients:
Lamb | Lamb Meal | Millet | Brown Rice | Cracked Pearled Barley | Oatmeal | Rice Bran | Menhaden Fish Meal | Canola Oil | Flax Meal | Amaranth | Blueberries | Dried Chicory Root | Carotene | Choline Chloride | Vitamin E Supplement | Iron Proteinate | Zinc Proteinate | Yucca Schidigera Extract | Copper Proteinate | Manganese Proteinate | Potassium Iodide | Thiamine Mononitrate | Ascorbic Acid | Vitamin A Supplement | Biotin | Calcium Panthothenate | Sodium Selenite | Pyridoxine Hydrochloride | Vitamin B12 Supplement | Riboflavin | Vitamin D Supplement | Folic Acid |
Thank you for any help you can provide. . .

You're right......and sorry, but I'd have to get a 2nd job to feed 4 dogs with $50 a bag food . And honestly, I don't see the need - especially when they are still needing to ADD salmon oil (NOT cheap) and other stuff to the food.
I feed the Premium Edge Skin & Coat formula, which is somewhere around $30 for a 35 pound bag retail (I get it at wholesale price, even better!!). My dogs eat 2-3 cups a day, no supplements needed. (girls eat 1c twice daily, pres eats 1-1/4 to 1-1/2c twice daily).
Group 4th at the beginning of September....... 2 weeks later he takes on a UKC show...... handled by his daddy Tim, getting 2 BEST IN SHOW wins on the first day (multi-breed show), second day Best of Winners finishing his CH, then moves up to the CH class for the second show and wins that too........ When PE stops working for me, I'll switch. Until then, I see no need to spend twice as much for their food.

I'm happy to see a dog in such great condition as yours without shelling out the big bucks for these foods that cost an arm and a leg. It seems as if your not shelling out the big bucks, your dog is automatically un-fit. For those of you who are able to afford/willing to shell those big bucks, thats good. I'm not knockin you for that. But all this, "Oh, this and that is bad", "Thats just filler", "They sell those in the grocery store"... I'm sorry, but who gives a fizzle! I don't have that much money, does that not qualify me to own a happy, healthy dog like I do now? The key to having a healthy dog, goes for the same as being healthy yourself. Get out there and flipping [i]EXCERCISE[/]. So a Human can sit on his/her ass all day and eat celery sticks, and fruits all day.. That still wouldn't make him/her any healthier than a person who excercises everyday, but eats McDonalds for lunch.

Usually, the difference between good and bad selections is only a few dollars. I'm not rich by any means but $15 extra every other month or so is negligible to the pocket and immeasurable to the health of your dog. Again, JMHO.
