Laura asks…

Are premium dog foods really all that?

When I read the ingredients they seem to be identical to the cheap stuff ie; “27% crude protein” is always the main ingredient in all dog foods.
I mean, you can read all the stuff on the bag about how the producer did all this research to find the perfect balance for the healthiest dog…and then go down to the actual what’s in it…and there it is…what’s actually in it.

Jimmy answers:

To know the difference between dog foods ( and cat foods for that matter ) you need to read the ingredients too, not just the percentages. For example, chicken by product meal can be found in lesser quality dog foods and will increase the percentage of protein. However, this would not be a high quality protein. It can include things like heads, feet and intestines.
Another example would be the inclusion of naturally sourced glucosamine and chondroitin. These help build healthy cartilage which leads to healthy joints.
Many dog foods use artificial flavours and colours and synthetic preservatives. A quality dog food contains no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
The bottom line is that in most cases you get what you pay for.
I’ve attached links to a page showing brand comparisons and the ingredients that you should see in a quality dog food.

Charles asks…

Blue Buffalo dog food?

Anyone here feed their dogs Blue Buffalo brand dog food?
I was thinking about changing my dogs food brand and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on Blue Buffalo brand.

Jimmy answers:

For the first year of my dog’s life with me I have fed him Nutro Ultra – their holistic brand. I am switching him over to his adult food and did a price comparison at PetSmart. For large breeds – the Blue Buffalo vs. Nutro Ultra 30 pound bags are the exact same price. Same as their canned food.
So people go on and on and on about how great Blue Buffalo is lol, so I figured I would try the switch. Too early to tell right now (just started the switch on Friday night, getting about 25% of it) but I know he really likes the taste! Lol
