Finally a dog food I can feel good about feeding to my dogs.
I have a great dane and an unknown breed from the pound.
They both love this food and seem happy at feeding times.
I give plain dry in the morning with some chicken broth added,
and add 1 can wet food with the dry at night. They go back and lick each
others bowl to make sure it is all gone. My great dane had bumps
under her chin and horrendous gas with other corn foods and those have
all but disappeared. Her chin is smooth and shiny. She is a fawn color,
and it is hard to see a shine on her hair, but she is slick and the other day,
I saw a golden shine on her slickest hair. Something must be good in this food.
My dane just had an operation for GDV (bloat/torsion) and this is the food I started her back on. I do not notice much gas, which I am thankful for, since it leads to the bloat, but
hopefully no more torsion since she had the gastropexy.
I put this dog food in water, to see how much it expanded. It didn't expand,
it just got softer and would crumble when I squeezed it. So I don't think it is a food
that will grow and expand in their stomach with water, like corn based foods.
I can't afford the "best" food, but in my opinion, this is the best for me.
I find it the best deal to get the 30 pound bag, but started off with the 15 pound bags at first.
Pure Balance also makes canned dog food, but I cannot splurge on $1 per can right now. Since I feed 14 cans a week, in addition to the dry. I have tried it, and it is also good quality.
I have just used the chicken and rice, and have not tried the lamb and rice. Because though I have heard lamb is for sensitive stomachs, I have always had the opposite when I tried lamb food in other brands. I will maybe try the lamb/rice dry in the 8 pound bag for starters one day.
My two dogs eat about 12 cups a day of this dry food, between the two of them.
