Ya know, come to think of it, I don't know why we keep comparing some of these dog foods to McDonalds. Really, have you seriously taken a look at some of the healthier items McDonalds is offering these days? Not only that, but I will say in McDonalds defense that they are one of the very few fast food chains that has not "supersized" their combos as of late. Look at Hardees, Taco Johns, etc. and what they offer as a "small" combo and you'll see what I mean. Also, if you are going to continue to go down this avenue, you might as well be aware that the ingredients in Dog Chow (although it's not one of my personal favorites either) are far better than most foods at McDonalds. You're not going to see McDonalds feed you corn or rice. So, while I'm definately not trying to endorse eating at McDonalds every day, I just don't think this analogy fits anymore- any way you flip it.Very true Lablady. But here's my personal opinion on the matter. Sure, a dog can live on low quality food, but then again, we could live on McDonalds every meal, every day.......it doesn't mean it's good for us or doing our bodies any good. Same goes for our dogs.
Just want to add a bit more to this. Jenny ( who we always assumed she was a black dog...) She was fed kibbles and bits, iams, purina, purina ONE, beneful, pedegree, every crappy food you can think of! She had a black coat. ~ About the beginning of 2007 we switched her over to CSFTDLS (super quality food!) and her coat is now Brindle. (yes, you heard me) This is a perfect coat coming in over her previously dull, rough, coarse coat. Her coat is now very shiney and soft, she has no dandruff and even sheds less! We very often get compliments on her coat. (although personally I think she looks a little funny now, I guess I'm so used to her being black... lol)My dogs took a huge turn for the better, shiney healthy looking coats, more energy, clearer eyes, firmer stools....overall, a big difference. Nothing changed besides the food. So you tell me? Why do you think that is?
Same with Jenny... I feel that my experiences with Jenny mean that CSFTDLS is a much better food to be feeding then any of the ones I named above.more energy, clearer eyes, firmer stools
