I've fed my GSD Purina One dry since she was a puppy. She grew up extremely healthy and still is at age 12. We don't feed her people food ever and forget canned moist food. The only thing she occassionally gets are when we have baby carrots in the house for a treat. They are very good for dogs as for people. She absolutely loves them. We recently switched to Dog Chow as I was sick and tired of the prices for One going up every time I turned around. She is doing just as well on regular Dog Chow as on the higher priced Purina. I don't put a price on my beloved shepherd's health, but it was getting ridiculous.

I had a vet explain to me once that the expensive foods like Iams and Science Diet are not better than the name brand dry foods. They just have less fillers like vegetable meals. There's nothing wrong with vegetable meals for a dog. Vegetable proteins are just as healthy for a canine as they are for people. She fed her rotweiler Iams just because they poop a bit less with the foods containing less fillers.

The bottom line is the FDA sets standards and all the foods meet them. It's a dog people. What gets me irritated is the people that preach to me about other dog foods. Clearly I don't care, it's kind of like religion people feel the need to force.

(not talkling bout anyone here)

Ol Roy dog food.

Ground yellow corn, meat and bone meal, soybean meal, chicken by-product meal, wheat middlings, animal fat [preserved with BHA and citric acid], natural flavor, brewers rice, salt, calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, choline chloride, color added [red #40, yellow #5, blue #2], zinc sulfate, vitamin E supplement, ferrous sulfate, zinc oxide, niacin, copper sulfate, vitamin A supplement, biotin, manganous oxide, calcium pantothenate, vitamin B12 supplement, thiamine mononitrate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, menadione sodium bisulfite complex [source of vitamin K activity], riboflavin supplement, sodium selenite, calcium iodate, folic acid, vitamin D3 supplement, cobalt carbonate

I don't know the last time I looked corn was not what dogs ate in the wild. Corn is not even good for cows.

I don't care what you feed your dog just don't get pissed when someone states a FACT about dog food.

I know some people who feed their dog exactly what they eat. If they are have a t-bone, potato, and green beans. Then that is what the dog eats as well. I also know some people who only feed a raw food diet to their dogs. They have a Great Dane that is 15 years old and can run 8 miles every other day.

Evo Grain free is even better for your dog.
