What dog food do you feed your dog?

We're looking at changing the food our dog is eating, and I was just wondering if anyone out there had any suggestions for a good and healthy dog food for us to look at/consider trying?

Try Science Diet or Eukanuba lamb and rice, they are very healthy for your pets, though their poops will smell worse than the usual! LOL

Try Eukanuba, I feed all 3 of my brats and they range frm 10 to 14 Eukanuba caters for all breeds and ages. The border collie battles now with his teeth, old age, so he gets a softer texture. we are have tried allot of brands over the years and settled down with Eukanuba

I recently switched both my dog and cat over to Purina ONE. The dog is young, so I can't say I've noticed much change in him from the switch, except that his poops are a bit smaller. But the cat, who is 10, has definitly had a boost in his energy and seems much more interested in playing than he had in quite awhile. We actually switched the cat over first, because of his age, but the improvement we saw in him convinced us to change the dog's food, too. When you are switching, try mixing the old and new foods for awhile so the change does not upset the dog's tummy. Good Luck. :-)

I use Nutro Natural Choice (Or Nature's Choice) it's all natural dog food and it isn't full of fillers like corn, that aren't nutritionally fit for a dog.

All PET foods these days are governed by STANDARDS,,, AND I suspect contain no more UNHEALTHY ingredients than we as humans ingest in what we get from fast food take out places. Check ingredients listed,,, that's easy enough. Look for the essentials a DOG needs, IE: Proteins. Cereals are usually a base of most dry foods, and in some cases are part of a decent balance, but note how ingredients are Listed in order of percentages. As a Human, if you check labels for foods you ingest, you might consider doing the same for foods you buy for your pets. Beyond that, ANY popular BRAND name will Hype theirs as best. Vet offices will offer such brands as SCIENCE diet for twice or more a reasonable price, but as the consumer for the pet it's YOUR responsibility to gauge not only what you read but how it effects your pet. Finally,,, Humans enjoy variety, and CHOICE. I have to believe, and have seen it manifest, that our PETS enjoy variety as well. Certainly if an animal "Goes off their feed" it may be just boredom, but a Vet check can't hurt. They also may reject changes initially? I just have to imagine that if we compare ourselves with a dog, for instance, and if we ate the same thing everyday for 12 years or so, we might be OVER IT,,,smile. Steven WOLF
