Yep, that's right, Pure Balance is an Ol' Roy food! shock In the previous post I meant that it's better than any of the other Ol' Roy formulas. dancing

I think it's a good thing.
You have to keep in mind that most people are paying the same price for bags and cans of Beneful, Pedigree, etc.
It's made in the US and most of the ingredients are sourced in the US as well.

I wouldn't feed it either, BUT that doesn't make it a bad food. I can afford Orijen but most people can't, and for those people who can't, this food is a good less expensive option.

I budget out Acana and Orijen just because I'm picky. I wouldn't feed this to my dog, however, it's better than the old Ol' Roy, Beneful and Kibbles and Bits.. So if we can get the word out.. However, if people can get to a Costco, the Kirkland brand is better than this and cheaper for more dog food smile

It's great that they are at least trying to make a better food, however, at almost $40 for a 30 lb bag, they aren't going to get people to switch from Ol'Roy or Pedigree. I can get a 30 lb bag of Taste of the Wild for 5 or 6 dollars more, so for what it is, the price is too high. There are lots of good mid range foods out there. I would be happier with this product if they would offer it at a lower price so that the people who are feeding their dogs lower quality kibbles would be more likely to switch. Because most people don't read the labels, they are going to see the price tag and then reach for the 50 lb bag of Ol Roy performance that they can get for $23.88.

Just my two cents.

I saw this in the Sunday ad and was wondering about it. Not bad! (for Wal Mart options that is). My store is pretty limited in their selection so I doubt they'll have it. They only have 5# bags of Nutrish which is the most decent option at my Wal Mart location. I've never seen anybody pick it up either probably for the exact same reason The Hounds mentioned plus they only have teeny bags. Whenever I see people buying food it's always Kibbles&Bits

I feed Carter Innova, which is the most affordable, best quality food I can get to fit his needs (a lot of the other brands have chicken or chicken fat in them and he is allergic). Cost is important at this point because I'm disabled and need to cut costs where I can, but am not comfortable feeding him any of the cheap grocery store/Walmart foods because of the poor quality and amount of recalls. I looked at this Pure Balance food and yeah, the ingredients are better than I thought they would be, but the fact that it's made by Ol' Roy makes me really nervous. The fact that they've had so many recalls alone makes this food a write off for me, unfortunately, which is a shame because the price is certainly right.

I was buying the Iams small breed dog food at Wal Mart for my Pom and they were out of stock so I bought the Pure Balance that was fully stocked. After a 1.5 weeks of my pom on this food I noticed he started coughing a lot and then noticed he was eating his own feces and grass. After doing some research of this food, I found that food NOT AAFCO APPROVED. I took the food back to walmart and got my 10.34 refund and went to PetCo and bought 10 lb bag Eukanuba of good nutrients for 36.89. Note: Wal Mart used to sell Eukanuba15 years ago. The Iams was fine, but I'm going back to the Eukanuba better food for my family pet
