P&G actually just recently sold the entire pet food portion of their company to Mars. So now P&G is not in pet food at all, it's all Mars company.

Skywalkers Mom It is always fun to get someones dander up. Too bad more people didnt put in their two cents worth. Keep up the ideas and thoughts flowing. Helps the gray cells.

RocketDog I was actually referring to studies in humans. If you want a truly non-reactive starch for dog food, look for tapioca.

Blanketback As far as rice goes, I remember reading something about arsenic:
FDA Releases Arsenic Test Results - Is Rice Safe for Your Dog?

And with tuna being the first ingredient - that's including the water weight, so remove the water and the tuna is farther along in the ingredient list. So the first ingredient is actually pea starch. IDK what to say about that, lol. Maybe that's why salt is listed twice, to make it more appetizing?

RocketDog In terms of allergy world, rice is the least inflammatory grain (to whomever thought barley was).

My personal opinion is that ingredient list sounds like a bunch of bs. Canola meal? What the heck.

CelticGlory Okay, I'm very curious about this; they list salt twice in this formula (I didn't look to much into the other three formulas in the line), "Sodium Selenite" and "salt". Why put salt twice? How much salt is usually in dog food when its added? Does anyone know?

As far as the OP's post more and more people are starting to care about ingredients and realizing that Purina is a low quality food. I imagine they're trying to appeal these people. I've never seen a dog food with tuna as the main protein before... just no. Btw a diet high in fish is not all that great for cats either.
What is right for one person is not necessarily right for the next person. The same goes for dogs. Dogs have survived and lived long healthy lives on what some would say are low quality foods. To each their own. I don't think people who feed raw are renegades or sheep and the same for those that feed dog food. No one should think they are better because of what they feed no matter what they feed.

When rule breaking occurs and a member posts poorly, instead of responding to them and copy/pasting the post...........

Move on like the intelligent adults you are, PM the moderator/admins so we can address the problem when we can, and help/address the topic of the question.

BTW, THANKS for most of you doing so well most of the time on the forum!

Or
