barbponys or anyone who knows dog food...

Postby AchillesThePit » Wed Jan 25, 2006 3:57 am

Do you know the dog food brand called "Organix"? It's on the Whole Dog Journal's good food list...and I'm wondering if it's very good or if it's just ok good? Thank you. :)

Patch O' Pits, ok thank you very much. I found a website that's here and they might carry the brand...though right now they have 0 in stock... :sad: But if it's good, I'm thinking of getting it once it's available.

I think you could do a lot worse. Considering that your choices are so limited, I'd give it a go and hope he does well on it.

I forget what you have been feeding him but he looks great so you're doing something right. (Though I understand good nutrition is not just about looks.)

Xgirl, I have to contest that good nutrtion is for more than great looks. Great looks is just a byproduct of a healthy animal. Good nutrtion is going to help the animal live a possibly longer and happier life, be less inclined to have allergies and or skin condtions aggervated by commerical dog food no matter the source.

NatX, my statement was an obvious error. I have edited my post to read correctly.

X-girl- No worries I wasn't trying to offend you or anything.

X-girl, thank you. :) Yeah it's frustrating not able to find good kibbles. I'm feeding him Royal Canin right now, and once in a while I cook him some chicken parts to eat. But I think Royal Canin might be too high on protein for him? Also heard it's not that good? So if I could I'd like to get him on something that's better quality. :) I called the company that carries Organix and they actually have it on stock, just haven't post it on their site. I asked for a sample and now waiting for them to send it. :)

If i remember correctly a neighbor uses the food and his dogs are doing really well and look great on it. He said that the company is supposed to be taking out the menodione sodium bisulfate and replacing it with more natural sources of vitk sometime this year.

That reads pretty well, I would give it a shot. I don't know where you are but if you're having trouble finding good foods that sounds like the best out of what has to be a short list if your feeding Royal Canine. On the other hand, if your ordering online to get it, you could do better.

abman, that's cool. I am thinking I might switch to Organix.

moto1320, I'm in Taiwan. The only okay ones here I could find are: Royal Canin, Chicken Soup for the dog lover's soul, Eagle Pack, Nutro, PetGuard and now Organix. We don't have real good ones here...So far I think Organix is the only good one I found...and it's very expensive...If I buy Organix, then yes I'll have to buy it online....

not here in Taiwan....shipping from overseas is crazy expensive since there are no distributors here locally carrying any of these high quality foods. The best I've seen for order online is probably the Organix, and it's already like $45usd for a 15lb bag!

Try Wysong!

Postby Alicia » Sun Feb 19, 2006 1:50 am

I love LOVE Wysong. They have many different options and you can order online. They offer an affordable food with exceptional quality. They also offer dehydrated and canned raw meats as well. Definitely worth checking out. My pets have been on it for a few years and are doing wonderfully. I still incorporate raw bones into their diet but the primary right now is Wysong kibble, dehydrated and canned raw. I also love the supplements AddLife and DentaTreat. I give all my pets Salmon oil as well, but that I don't get through Wysong.
