|I'm eating Beneful, Dog Chow, and the whole line of corn-based Purina dog foods. I have a bowel problem, so my kibble must be corn-based, otherwise I cannot digest it at all. The vets have not found anything, so we suspect IBS. We tried the raw diet but I almost died because of a huge bacterial infection. I'm so glad it works for you though!
I also learned that where Pitties originated from had a lot of corn. When they were being bred for their specific jobs such as guarding and fighting- they ate a corn-based diet. I thought that was interesting... maybe it has something to do with me tolerating Beneful.
Nutrition is very important, but enjoying my life is even better! So even though I eat Beneful, I'll still probably live a long and healthy life. It just depends upon the individual dog.
