I've fed my dogs Science Diet as recommended by some vets and vet school students for awhile now- And I could never justify changing or feeding anything different because my dogs are healthy and look good. I always said "I could see if she didn't have a good coat, wasn't active, didn't have energy, didn't look good..." etc and seriously always thought I was making the right decision with Science Diet (I had it in my head that that is what I was going to feed before we even got the dog... majority of the reason is because a friend in vet school recommended it... and she's smart! LOL) ALSO because I took an animal nutrition class- from the top undergrad school in getting students into vet school. Now, on behalf of the class I'll say it was 99.99 percent geared to livestock- BUT we were told that unless you have performance dogs it really doesn't make too much of a difference in what dog food you feed as long as a meat is the first product.
After reading your post Im changing... its not enough for my dogs just to look good and have energy, etc. Maybe they are a lucky on that does great on this food but I'm not taking the chance- they are young now and who knows what will happen when they are older.
Very, very nicely done, and thank you so much for taking the time to do it. I'm going to save a copy to my computer.
