Well, if you read it, its not that good. Purina uses animal digest. That itself is just horible. :x There are many other better choices. Your dog will thank you for it!! :D (he will also be healthier and look and feel better too!!!)

One other tip...if your dog has a skin problem it could be because of the corn in the dog food. (dry skin, rash or scratches all the time)

Dairy products can cause tummy upsets and the runs.

I would also like to hear what you folks have been feeding your pets. :D
we feed ours canned 9-lives, dry friskies, and meow mix. tender vittles, too. and they all get milk several times a day, ice cream when we have it, pork rinds, yogurt, meat, etc.
they love shrimp, too.

Walmart has GREAT cat food!! Its not as good as Dick Van Pattons stuff but its equal to Eukanuba. It comes in a foil bag. I forgot the EXACT name of it. Now for dogs I heard they also have excellent food at a great price too. I looked for it on the internet but I couldnt find it. Im low on funds so Im getting the Walmart food for the cats now. But if you look at the ingredients its amazing the horrible stuff they put in there. Infact some include animal endtrails. :x

Please everyone, take a look at the ingredients on you pet food! If you dont know what a certain term means just Google it. :D
