my dogs don't do well with these. yeast infections in ears, and in between their pads.
What kibble were you feeding that contained these? Or, were you just feeding peas and lentils for some reason?

Thanks!

I asked this question a couple weeks ago. I got a response back from Bonnie. She said plant protein is less than 1%. So, they are claiming 37+% from animal protein. I find that a little hard to believe. I would have expected something like 8% from plant protein which would have still been acceptable to me.

I have recently asked about ash content since that is not on the website for the new formula. It's not on the bag either. Waiting to hear back from them.

No, I don't think that is how the rule was intended to work .... Though I am, obviously, no moderator or administrator so I can't be sure. I believe that if the comment is relevant and from first hand experience sharing it would not be considered in violation. My understanding is that it was written mostly to deal with off topic, irrelevant jabs at members and/or manufacturers such as has happened far too often in the past. An example of the type of thing this rule is meant to cover can be seen most recently in the thread about the recent recall of some Honest Kitchen products.

Now to add some info that's actually on subject - Champion comfirmed to me today via email that the 'Whole Prey' formulas are indeed replacing the old formulas rather than supplementing them. Also the freeze dried foods and treats should finally be available at retail in the next couple weeks.

I have an email out to them (sent earlier today) inquiring about the protein percent derived from meat ingredients in the new formula as well. We will see if and how they reply. If I get a response I will be sure to update.

I start out on the CP to hit the theads I am involved with and then swing onto the Active Topics, and rarely go on the forum listing itself. This is how I avoid things like rules I guess. Now if only I could figure out a way to avoid right turns on my way home, I won't need to fix that turning signal any time soon.

Lol to that sentiment, but yes there is a new rule. You can read it here: http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...ce-policy.html

Ah, Nancy is quicker on the draw than I
