$36 for 21 lbs of bad dog food? You can do a lot better!!!
Product A: Ground yellow corn, chicken by-product meal, corn gluten meal
Product B: Chicken,chicken meal,whole grain brown rice
Does a product primarily composed of corn and “by-products” sound as healthy for your dog as one whose first two ingredients are chicken and followed up by rice, a quality grain? Do dogs feed themselves on primarily corn in the wild? Of course not.
And what if I told you that Product B is sold for $30 per 40lb bag at Costco, while Product A is being sold at $36 for 21lbs worth of inferior food? Which sounds like the better deal to you?
Do yourself a favor and save yourself some cash while also providing a healthier meal for your loved one. I’m not here to push Costco’s Kirkland brand dog food, which is Product B in this comparison and is clearly a better value then Beneful. Blue Buffalo, Taste of the Wild, Canidae,etc are other examples of much higher quality foods that can be had for a lot cheaper. For once you can eat healthy AND save money.
Worse dog food on the market!!! Don’t buy this stuff!
Dogs Love It
Do not feed your dogs beneful
The price is ridiculous
My dog likes it
TOO HIGH PRICED..I’M VERY SAD…
Horrible Dog Food
UPDATE 01/03/2012: Finally after a few years one of our min pins started growing her hair back at (11) years of age after losing it a few years ago from this food. We fed her ORIJEN brand (6 fish) from Canada for a while then switched to something called Orgainix from PetCo (Made in USA) which is like $35 a bag, about the same price as the #1 rated ORIJEN. We now have 4 min pins with shiny coats that are healthy and playful.
dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/beneful-dog-food-dry/ also rates this as one star
Ingredients: Ground yellow corn, chicken by-product meal, corn gluten meal, whole wheat flour, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), rice flour, beef, soy flour, sugar, propylene glycol, meat and bone meal, tricalcium phosphate, phosphoric acid, salt, water, animal digest, sorbic acid (a preservative), potassium chloride, dried carrots, dried peas, calcium propionate (a preservative), L-Lysine monohydrochloride, choline chloride, added color (Red 40, Yellow 5, Yellow 6, Blue 2), DL-Methionine, Vitamin E supplement, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, manganese sulfate, niacin, Vitamin A supplement, calcium carbonate, copper sulfate, Vitamin B-12 supplement, calcium pantothenate, thiamine mononitrate, garlic oil, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin supplement, Vitamin D-3 supplement, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (source of Vitamin K activity), calcium iodate, folic acid, biotin, sodium selenite.
Fiber (estimated dry matter content) = 4.7%
The first ingredient in this dog food is corn. Corn is an inexpensive and controversial cereal grain of only modest nutritional value to a dog.
For this reason, we do not consider corn a preferred component in any dog food.
The second item is chicken by-product meal… a dry rendered product of slaughterhouse waste. It’s made from what’s left of a slaughtered chicken after all the prime cuts have been removed.
In a nutshell, chicken by-products are those unsavory leftovers usually considered “unfit for human consumption”.
In addition to organs (the nourishing part), this stuff can contain almost anything… feet, beaks, undeveloped eggs… anything (that is) except skeletal muscle (real meat).
Well, we had to switch dog food brands for health reasons, and the gas stopped IMMEDIATELY!! Do not give your dogs this dry dog food unless you own and want to constantly wear a gas mask!
Baneful Healthy Weight Dry Dog Food
Our dogs have eaten this for years
For several years, both our 4 pound and 12 pound chihuahuas used this as their regular food, both were very happy with it. Eventually, we lost our older dog, and now the younger one is an old lady. We have switched from the weight control to regular, particularly since she has recently lost 30% of her body weight.
In the meantime, we have added a younger chihuahua to the mix, and she enjoyed both the weight control and the regular.
While some of the ingredients (like beef tallow and chicken by products) sound gross to me, I have to remember I am not a dog, and living in a rural area, I have seen what they think is appetizing. I use cornmeal in many of my own recipes, including tortillas, corn muffins, breaded chicken, and cornbread.
Both have remained healthy and required very little dental work.
zero stars: READ THE INGREDIENTS AND YOU WILL NEVER BUY THIS JUNK
if you wonder why canine cancer is up, look no further than bad food.
False Advertising, Terrible Dog Food!!
I recommend to stay far away from Beneful, and most Purina products. When purchasing a dog (or cat) food, the most important thing to consider is the first 3 ingredients; just make sure those first three are decent ingredients that you would eat yourself. Now that I know what to look for, I usually buy my pets all natural, organic foods such as Blue Buffalo, Halo or Wellness.
Dog would not eat this food
I’m not sure why that was but think that is a bad thing. I probably should have read the reviews online before buying it at petsmart.
