msvette2u Mag, this is how we broach that subject - these two questions are on our app.

What BRAND and type of food do you now or would you feed your pet?

Many dog foods contain substandard ingredients; if the food you feed now or would feed is one of them, are you open to suggestions regarding the best diet for your dog(s)?

Magwart I just got an adoption application from someone who looks like a good adopter except for feeding that stuff. I'd been pondering how to approach a conversation about better food -- this link gave me a very polite way to broach the subject. Thanks!

I have the same rule in my house. I keep the products from China to a minimum, and absolutely no food from China.

Cheerful1 I remember last year when we had Joey for a short time, I had the bright idea that maybe he'd like a change from the Royal Canin we were feeding him. I bought some Beneful from BJs (12-pack of wet food).

He got so sick it scared us. I threw the rest of it out.

It could have been his system reacting to a new food, but you never know.

msvette2u Beneful is one of the most beautifully portrayed foods on TV. We have had applications where people feed it and we always recommend they switch due to poor ingredients. But this is good information to have as backup for those who say their dog loves it...of course they love it, it's got sugar in it!

(eta) I'd advise against it due to ingredients but I really don't trust the examiner as a "news source" at all.

Sunflowers Yikes! I doubt anyone here might be feeding that but just in case, here's the link:

Jax08 your link didn't work.

This one seems to be the same article?

FYI: Purina's treats are part of the latest China recall.
