James asks…

About Beneful Dog food?

Why do so many people recommend Beneful when people ask for a good pet food?

now, the first ingredient is the main ingredient…then on down the line.

Also, Corn is EXTREMELY bad for dogs…

yet here is beneful’s main ingredients

First ingredient… Ground yellow CORN,

That’s the main ingredient!! Next is…

chicken by-product meal , CORN gluten meal, whole wheat flour, (FYI By product as in beaks, feathers, not actual meat)

oh how about these ingredients…

flour, sugar, sorbitol, tricalcium phosphate, water, salt, phosphoric acid,


added color (Yellow 5, Red 40, Yellow 6, Blue 2)

Meat doesn’t even play a part in the main ingredients (other than animal digest)… why do people still feed/recommend Beneful as healthy?

why are people so up on Beneful and so down on Blue Buffalo whose main ingredients are…

Chicken, Chicken Meal, Whole Ground Brown Rice

or Innova whose main ingredients are Turkey, Chicken, Chicken meal, so on

to the “vet”

if you say corn isn’t bad for dogs, you need your license revoked if you really are a vet.

As a vet tech I witnessed several dogs DIE from bloat caused by corn and several more get seriously ill from corn.

Corn is not digestable in any form!!!

look at your own poop next time you eat corn. Gross yes… but look.

you’ll see whole peices of corn in your poop. Even humans can’t digest it.

Its basic knowledge 101 even for a simplet tech like me. So if you’re really a vet.. you need to go back to school dude!!

Also, Chiken by products means the Neck, Beak, feat of a chicken and as little feathers as can be avoided (though there will be feathers included) Not just what an animal would eat in the wild. don’t know many wolves who eat beaks and talons.

where do you get YOUR info? My god how uninformed you are for a “vet” even the vets I worked with know that much!

Jimmy answers:

If you read the ads for Beneful and believe them, you will thinkt his stuff is great. On top of that, it is made in cutesy shapes that are supposed to look like healthy meat and vegetable products, when, as you know having read the ingredients, it is mostly corn fillers and gruesome by-products.

Beneful is awful, but people don’t take the time to look at what’s in dog food usually, or they wouldn’t feed their dogs ANY supermarket junk. Even Science Diet, which is sold in a lot of vet’s offices, is mostly corn meal and garbage by-products.
People think, if their vet sells it, it must be good – not true, the vet gets paid for carrying it.

Always get a good quality dry for your dogs, with meat as the first ingredient – not meat meal, and certainly not corn meal fillers and artificial preservatives that give it the shelf life of plastic.

Canidae is good, there are others just as good, but you will not find them in grocery stores or Walmart – you need to go to a feed store, holistic pet food store, or a big pet store – and even they carry junk.

Read the ingredients folks, cheaper to spend more for quality dry dog food than to pay the vet further down the line when your dog is fat and sick.

Betty asks…

Ever moved your dog from wet food to dry,how easy was it? What d’you think of food below (link below)?

We have a 5 year old Yorkie, more or less she has only ever eaten wet food, generally pretty good stuff with high meat content for the last few years, for the first 2 years or so the wet food we bought had a lower meat content but still wasn’t the cheap, cheap stuff. Anyway, best financially for us (and arguably healthwise for her) to move her to dry food, we did try a small pack of quality dry stuff recently and she seemed to like it, not sure how she’d react to it if it was a constant thing though.

What do you make of this stuff made by a German company called Bosch http://www.zooplus.de/shop/hunde/hundefutter_trockenfutter/my_friend/10692 14% meat content if we understand, think some foods only have 4% or so. We have been feeding her wet stuff called Roco, also made in Germany, 60% meat content I think http://www.zooplus.ie/shop/dogs/canned_dog_food/rocco/rocco_classic/154458 Thanks.
Ingredients of the dry food (translated from German)

Cereals (maize, wheat, barley), meat and animal derivatives, derivatives of vegetable origin, oils and fats, minerals.
Meat portion: at least 14% (on dry basis). Proportion of animal derived protein in total protein: at least 44%

Ingredients of the wet food:

Beef & Poultry Hearts:
Meat and meat by-products (50% beef, 20% poultry hearts), minerals, oils and fats (0.2% linseed oil).
Meat & innards: 70%.

Beef & Chicken:
Meat and meat by-products (40% beef, 30% chicken), minerals, oils and fats (0.2% linseed oil).
Meat & innards: 70%.

Beef & Game:
Meat and meat by-products (50% beef, 20% wild), minerals, oils and fats (0.2% linseed oil).
Meat & innards: 70%.

Beef & Pollock:
Meat and meat by-products (50% beef, 20% salmon), minerals, oils and fats (0.2% linseed oil).
Meat & innards: 70%.

Beef & Reindeer:
Meat and meat by-products (50% beef, 20% reindeer), minerals, oils and fats (0.2% linseed oil).
Meat & innards: 70%.
I’m not sure if that Bosch company is the same as the ones who make the electrical goods, I don’t think so but I could be wrong.

Jimmy answers:

Terrible food. It doesn't even say what the "meat" is. Is it beef? Chicken, lamb, turkey? Did u know it is totally legal for dog food companies to use roadkill, sick and dying livestock and euthanized shelter cats and dogs as a meat source in their pet foods and they don't even have to tell u? So when u read "meat" on a label that is likely what u are buying. And soy, wheat and barley make up the majority of the food, not meat. I'm not sure about Germany, but here in the US I feed orijen and natures variety Instinct. Other good brands I've heard are Taste of the Wild, Canidae, Solid Gold, Merrick and Fromm.
