Maybe I'm just crazy and losing my mind, but I seem to recall Target carrying, in addition to the usual low-to-middling quality "supermarket" pet foods, decent brands such as Dr Foster's & Smith, Newman's Own Organics, and PetGuard.
A recent trip to Target's pet food aisle (to tide my animals over until I could get to the pet store) revealed NONE of these brands. Not a ONE! What happened? Does anyone else's local Target still carry these brands? I noticed PetGuard is still available on the website but it states that it is an "in-store item" only.
I noticed they're pushing their "Boots & Barkley" private label everywhere. The ingredients on the can looked terrible, so I left and went over to PetSmart where I learned they now carry WELLNESS! Finally, an alternative to Blue Buffalo, though I find both foods, while excellent, to be way overpriced.
Geez, even my local WalMart carries Newman's Own and Three Dog Bakery. Neither brand thrills me but they'll certainly do in a pinch....
