I can't believe I am posting about Ol Roy! LOL
But I wanted some opinions here. Now I normally wouldn't touch it with a 10 ft. pole. I don't necessarily always feed a no grain food, but I try to feed the best I can afford. Heck I'd like to feed my kids all organic and natural food, but I can't afford that either!
That said this week has been a horribly tight week. Unexpected expenses etc.. But, couldn't wait until next week for dog food. So I figured I would run to Wal-mart and buy the best they had. I spotted a food call Pure Balance, it didn't sound bad, then I realized it was by Ol Roy! I went ahead and bought, it. Pup seems to like it. I wouldn't buy it on a regular basis, alot of rice in it. But, I don't think it is an awful choice for someone on a tight budget $6.78 for I think either a 4-5 lb bag. I checked Dog Food Advisor and it gets 3.5 stars. Here is a breakdown, what do you all think?
