Discussing Questions And Answers About Dog Food Comparison

Lisa asks…

Comparison of two dry dog foods?

I just want to ask a question regarding this dog food I am feeding my 18mth old female labrador who weighs 28 kg

I was feeding this food


but have bought this one instead which is higher in protein (6 percent more) and slightly higher (4 percent) more in fat.


Our dog is very active walking every day and also chasing the ball.

Would the Supercoat Junior make my dog fatter ? Is more protein a bad thing ?
I don’t want to be told that the food is crappy, I just want the question answered.

It cost 50 dollars for the food, so that isn’t cheap.
It wasn’t bought at a supermarket it was bought at a pet shop.
It was bought at a pet shop that is a stock feed shop (used to be a service station / petrol station) and they now sell all pet food etc. It was 6 dollars cheaper than the other stores and it was 49.95 for a 18kg bag. Why would they put Doctor Harry on the front of a crappy product ???

Jimmy answers:

“Meat and meat by-products (from chicken and/or beef), wholegrain cereals (wheat and/or sorghum), cereal bran and/or vegetable proteins, beet pulp, iodised salt, vitamins (A, D, E, K, B1, B6, niacin, riboflavin, folic acid, choline, biotin, B12) and trace minerals (iron, zinc, copper, manganese), mixed natural tocopherols (vitamin E), rosemary plant extract, lutein, L-Carnitine, whole linseeds, garlic and kelp.

Crude Protein – 26.0%”

meat and meat by-products – is it from chicken or beef, they can not even tell you … And by-products means you are feeding your dog beaks and hooves for all you know …

Whole grain cereals – they trick you with this one by calling it whole grain and you think that is good, wrong !!! Dogs do not digest wheat … Senseless filler … Remember the giant dog food recall, it was partially due to wheat gluten …

Cereal bran and/or vegetable protein – which is it ??? Cereal bran, again no good for your dog … Vegetable protein is okay but why is it not specified ??? I would not trust it …

Beet pulp – another senseless filler not tolerated well by dogs …

The next ingredient is SALT – what is that about ???

Both foods you have posted are unhealthy choices … That fact that you spent so much money, just means you were taken and did not do your research before you made your purchase …

Get a good food with the main protein source listed first, like if it is a chicken formula, chicken should be listed first … No corn, no BY-PRODUCTS (do you know it has been found that dead pets have been used as by-products ???), no colouring, no flavouring … You have a larger dog so he could benefit from a bit higher protein and protein from meat and not vegetables … And please click on the link below, it is very informative and you will not want to feed your dog either of these foods …

Steven asks…

The supply and demand of Dog Food.?

I am looking to understand the supply and demand of dog food. (price, premium food vs. grocery quality food, consumer demand, etc…)
This is just a normal question of “what is” supply and demand, I would like to understand how it relates to Dog food.
I have seen comparisons towards oil and gas.

Jimmy answers:

Supply and demand works the same for dog food as any other commodity on the market.

Sandy asks…

is it true that dog food has better nutrition than fastfoods menu?

not to be taken literally. just for comparison

Jimmy answers:

Depends on the food. Quarter pounder or beneful, give me a quarterpounder.

A double whopper with cheese or Timberwolf Organics, mmmm timberwolf organics.

It depends on the ingredients. If it’s cancer vs heart disease, it’s a tough call. We all know fast food isn’t good for us on a daily basis, yet we give our dogs the same stuff every day. Better make sure its good.
