Hi....I was feeding my guy Blue Buffalo, but the only store that carries it is too far away anymore. I don't like to buy from a website, so I have changed to Paul Newmans Own Dog Kibble. I can buy it locally. It gets good ratings & has good ingredients listed & I've always liked Paul Newman.

I would like to hear from anyone who has fed this food. Anyone?

Thanks :wave:

I sometimes feed Paul Newman's canned food and their little heart-shaped biscuits, but I'm not too keen on the kibble because I think it has soybean oil in it.

I've fed Newman's Own Organics before for short periods of time when I've run out of food before I had time to get to TSC (I normally feed TOTW). You could certainly do worse for a grocery store kibble, but it's pretty pricey for what you get. It gets a 4/5 on dogfoodadvisor.com.

Seems to be a ton of filler with oats, barley, rice, peas, sorghum, and millet. Top ten: Chicken, chicken meal, organic oats, organic barley, organic peas, organic soybean meal, organic sorghum, organic brown rice, organic millet, organic rice. (11th is chicken fat)

Agree, the number of grains and such in the stuff is ridiculous. I don't like feeding flax and soy, I wouldn't buy this when my dogs ate kibble. At least organic means NOT GMO, right? GMO is so weed killer can be used, right?

Well, it's 54% carbohydrate, so it does have a lot of fillers but not much more than some brands that tend to be endorsed on here. Canidae has 49% carbohydrate, Blue Buffalo Basics has 51% and Solid Gold has 50% (obviously, their grain-free formulas have less carbs). Anyway, I don't necessarily think it's useful to point out that there is a long list of different grains and other carb. sources, since even all of those could in theory add up to the same or less carbs as a food that says just "rice" or something like that. We're not actually getting how much of the total food each of those grains accounts for.

True, and it has a good amount of protein. If the dog starts itching it is a really long list of grains and such to avoid though.

Thanks for your replies. I'm going to check out different ones on Dog Food Analysis - my guy deserves the best :) I might have to have it delivered.
