This is another good dog recipe with something we generally really love when looking at a dog food: fish as the main ingredient.
I was also reading about raw diets, that soft dog food is actually better than hard food, that carbs break down into sugars so one should be watchful of rice and sweet potatoes, etc. The research is arduous and frustrating. My dogs are breeder rescue purebreds. 2 strikes against them from the start. I’m not noticing any problems at (we’re guessing) 6 years old and 3 years old, but I don’t want them fed things that aren’t necessary or good for them. I’ll look for a nutritionist today. Thank you for your valued input
Corn and or wheat are not good for dogs. My three year old golden has seizures and that is especially bad for dogs with that condition. As I am on a budget, I feed her Diamond naturals. Has anyone else noticed that it gives their dog bad breath? I took my dog to the vet and had her teeth cleaned. The tech commented that her teeth were not that bad and I said that she had always had bad breath. She wondered if it wasn’t the food I was feeding her.

Pedigree – The Pedigree brand of dog food is owned and produced by Mars PetCare, a subsidiary of Mars, Inc. which is the sixth largest privately held company in the United States. Pedigree offers a wide assortment of dry foods, wet foods, and dog treats that are marketed as, “really good food”. This brand offers dog food products for puppies, adult dogs, and senior dogs as well as recipes formulated for dogs of different sizes and with different dietary and health needs. If you check the ingredients list for most of these products, however, you will find that they do not vary significantly in terms of their formulation. Most Pedigree products list whole grain corn as the first ingredient. Not only is this ingredient a common food allergen for dogs, but it offers very limited nutritional value. Most of Pedigree’s products are carb-heavy and loaded with low-quality fillers as well as artificial additives. What makes this brand so popular is the fact that it is easy to find and easy to afford.The Wellness Core product line includes seven dry dog foods, six which claim to meet for adult maintenance. This above-average dry product has a dry matter protein reading of 38%, a fat level of 13% and estimated carbohydrates of about 41%. What does this mean? The brand is way above-average with protein, near-average with fat and below-average with carbs when compared to a typical dry dog food. As you might have guessed, these are all very good things. Plus, tons of flaxseed. Yum!None of this info will shock you. Just like humans do best when they eat real food, your dog’s system won’t do well over time on a heavily processed diet. We know you love real ingredients and care about what treats you dog gets. Just think, most pups eat the same thing everyday, sometimes twice a day. If you make it something awesome, they’ll enjoy eating and feel good too. That means a shinier coat, more energy and an increased lifespan!The Honest Kitchen product line includes seven dehydrated dog foods, three of which got high marks on Our favorite is Embark (teehee), an insanely wholesome food for pups. Embark is a gluten-free dog food recipe made with cage-free turkey, as well as produce such as celery, spinach and apples. It is a higher protein, higher fat natural human grade dog food that works for all ages. It’s obviously great for dogs who need a diet without gluten, but is also good for those who need a low carbohydrate dog food, and those who do better without beef or fish. Mix with water and serve!
