Sandra asks…

Is Pro Plan a good choice for my dog ?

I am a cocker owner in Malaysia, well, here we got oni Pro Plan, Eukabuba, Science Diet as the Super Premium dog food. I am damn desperate, be4 these, i am using Eukanuba for my dog, but then i discovered all the disadvantages and P&G company used to testing on animal, very cruel and sad. Then now I got to switch to Pro Plan. Here are some branches questions :
1. Do Purina perform any cruelty testing on animals like Eukanuba ?
2. Pro Plan, Science Diet, or Eukanuba is the best ?
3. Please help me to point out the disadvantages, easier for me to do comparison.

Wish u all can help me, I thought Eukanuba is very good oredi, but now oni i know its badness. Coz in Malaysia, dog issues is not tht many as Western countries, so i am so desperate to work out myself and decide wht is the best food for my dog.

Thanks a lot, relly

Pro Plan isn’t a good dog food to be feeding your dogs. I can’t recommend the other 2 either tho. You didn’t say which Purina, but say Chicken and Rice is what you are feeding.. Look at the ingredient list. The only thing that is good is the chicken being the main ingredient… You have a whole bunch of grains and by products next.. ALOT of corn products, animal fat?? What kind of animal fat? More corn, and fish meal?? What kind of fish? Animal digest… Well you get the point. It’s a little bit of chicken, and a whole bunch of filler crap to fill up your dog so that he appears to be full and happy. You are going to have a dog that isn’t nutritionally fufilled and a whole lot of dog poop to clean up.

Pro Plan Chicken and Rice:Ingredients:
Chicken, brewers rice, whole grain wheat, poultry by-product meal (natural source of glucosamine), corn gluten meal, whole grain corn, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), corn bran, fish meal (natural source of glucosamine), animal digest, dried egg product, calcium phosphate, salt, potassium chloride, calcium carbonate, Vitamin E supplement, choline chloride, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), manganese sulfate, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, copper sulfate, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin B-12 supplement, pyridoxine hydrochloride, garlic oil, folic acid, Vitamin D-3 supplement, calcium iodate, biotin, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), sodium selenite.

Thoughts on BG (Before Grain) dog food..?

Planning on switching my 2 adult Jack Russel’s and new mutt puppy pretty soon. I am going to wait until we go through my puppies current food then switch him. Just curious if anyone had good reports.

+All dog foods are not created equal. There is a huge difference in ingredients, quality of ingredients and company standards. When wondering what to get or comparing your current food it is best to do as much research as possible.

Your options are a raw diet, which is one of the greatest diets for dogs. To learn more go to www.barfworld.com. Raw really means nothing cooked; meat, bones and organs. This is not to be confused with allowing your dog to eat cooked bones, cooked bones are harmful, raw bones are not. This is the dog’s ancestral diet. If you think a dog should not be eating raw meat, go back and study wolves. Ask yourself what year was dog food made and then how long have dogs been around without our help of over processed dog food and gravy.

Another option is kibble and wet food. I think a good choice is both. Feeding Kibble 2x a day 12 hours apart and wet food 2x a week in place of 1 feeding of equal calories is a good balance. When you are looking for a healthy dog food it is important that not only the kibble be high quality but the wet food, treats and chews be high quality as well.

Foods to avoid: Pedigree, Beneful, Purina, Iams, Nutro, Alpo, Ol Roy, Mighty Dog, Ceser, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Purina, Royal Canin, Eagle Pack (not to be confused with Eagle Pack Holistic) and of course all grocery store brands i.e. Publix brand dog food, Winn-Dixie brand dog food etc.

These foods have low quality ingredients that can cause allergies, diabetes, bloat, overweight, oily skin, excessive and or runny stool and a myriad of other problems. Most of these brands are owned by companies like Del Monte, Proctor and Gamble, Mars and Nestle. Do you really believe that a company like Proctor and Gamble who makes beauty products, household cleaning supplies, baby items, prescription drugs and many others is the best suited company to make quality products for dogs? 50% of Mars is pet food, 45% is unhealthy snacks like candy bars. Does this sound like the best company to make dog food? All of these companies have one thing in common, they have the advertising to make you believe pictures of meat and veggies and healthy dogs running around on the commercials is what you will get. Knowing the truth about what is in these foods is devastating.

Quality dog foods: Innova, California Natural, EVO, Karma, Wellness, Wellness Core, Orijen, Canidae, Merricks, Artemis, Taste of the Wild, Nature’s Variety, Solid Gold-Barking at the Moon and Timberwolf.

Here are several websites to do your own research, which I highly suggest. A lot of questions here about dog’s health problems are a direct result of the food you are feeding. Read the ingredients label on the back, go to the website and see who owns the dog food, look up the ingredients and learn why it is used and what the pros and cons are. Changing to a healthy low grain, no grain dog food will relieve most of your dog aliments and give you a healthier and happier dog.

Science Diet is promoted by vets who in return make a profit on every bag they sell. Hill’s is the largest employer of veterinarians outside of academia. They sponsor many pet nutrition related veterinary school programs and hold seminars and training sessions on the subject of pet nutrition for practicing veterinarians. So of course Hill’s is going to say they are the best, they are teaching the vets pet nutrition, they want to make a profit, not healthy cat and dog food.
