A holistic food could be anything. People feed Purina Beneful because they think it's health food.
LOL! I wish I could but I can't. I've had the same good luck with what would be "so-called" cheaper foods. Cheaper by ingredients, certainly not by price!Originally Posted By: Superpup
Give me an argument to shut this person up...
Perhaps said person isn't claiming to "know it all" and just knows what works for his/her dog or cat.Originally Posted By: CastlemaidCan't change people mind when they are convinced they know it all!
I feed the prescription diet which is Royal Canin L/F.Originally Posted By: caligirl07Which RC you feed? I used to feed the RC 32 for large breed puppy and recently changed to RC 24 for GS adult. Buddy is 8 months.
There is no corn in this one and only 24% protein. I tried Canidae and he liked it first and then didn't want to eat that. SO I am back to RC again.
I agree. Maybe they are just happy with what they are feeding and satisfied. I have never heard of a food causing deafness....Originally Posted By: mamagoosePerhaps said person isn't claiming to "know it all" and just knows what works for his/her dog or cat.Originally Posted By: CastlemaidCan't change people mind when they are convinced they know it all!
I think this is the key part.Originally Posted By: BowWowMeowA holistic food could be anything. People feed Purina Beneful because they think it's health food.
I wouldn't be surprised if these folks also did a "cold turkey" switch from one food to the other. Rather than giving the dogs system time to adjust by mixing the old food with the new.Originally Posted By: SomePup
The owners are usually quick to respond with , "My dog can't handle those premium dog foods! He gets sick, or has to go to the Vet.." etc. It makes me wonder if the dogs are so used to eating that type of food that anything richer or less processed is rejected by their systems?
I agree with this, however, the "best" is not the same for everydog just as it isn't with humans.Originally Posted By: doggiedadjust like us humans, i would think better foods are better foor us so why not better foods for our pets and it doesn't matter whether it's a stray, mixed breed or pure bred they should only get the best. being the providers for our pets we should only give the best care, the best living arrangements and the best love. i feel really good knowing that i take really good care of my pets. "there's no such thing as a spolied pet, it's just well taken care of".
Small unruly children?Originally Posted By: DSuddLIsa, I am sure you won't get proof. Puppy Chow and Pedigree have been fed to dogs for decades. Think about it, what did people feed their pets before the premium food came about?
