There a myths that allergies are caused by ingredients such as corn but that is not the case. To say that something is a filler would imply it has no nutritional value; when in fact corn is a superb source of nutrients. There is a misconception that whole corn is used – in fact the corn is baked and is much like ground corn you buy. When cooked it is highly digestible.We hear many concerns about by-products in pet food. We need to understand how they are defined and what they really are and what is their nutrient value.
By-products is really a play on words. Virtually all ingredients in pet foods are by-products. No one for example uses real chicken breasts as we know it.It’s neck and backs of a chicken.
Another common myth is that meat should always be the first ingredient, inferring that if that was the case, there would be more meat than anything else in the food. Often the carbohydrates levels are higher than the meats because of the way they are listed in the ingredient panel.Meat first is often the first ingredient only to please the consumer look st the ash levels and mositure levels, and ingreident spliting.
I have fed Science Diet to my two dogs and I am very happy with the results. They love the food, it seems to have a good nutrient profile, my dogs have not had any gas or loose stool, in fact the clean up has been minimal so far, poop is much smaller and less of it that ever! I keep searching the yard with the scooper several times a day and there just isn’t much to clean up! I can honestly say that they are going HALF as much as they were before! I never would have believed it, considering that there is a considerable amount of corn in these formulas.
My dogs were itching, had greasy coats and dandruff all at the same time! I was frustrated and worried for them…after a relatively short time, one of the dogs has virtually stopped itching and the other has decreased her itching intensity.
I do wish the food was less expensive.

My dog is sick and on prednisone. The vet recommended this food because of weight gain from the prednisone. My Yorkie Loved it! I was really surprised. He eats every bite. It’s really tiny pieces so its easy for a tiny dog to eat. I mixed a bit of his old food with it at first and gradually lower the amount of his older food. Now he is just eating this food. That way there’s no stomach upset from drastically changing his diet. I would definitely recommend this food for weight loss and it was neurology vet approved.
This is definately chihuahua puppy approved. I like the fact that there is a puppy food for smaller breeds. These are real small bites. My puppy was 2.16 lbs at 7 weeks and tiny, so having something that is small enough for him to chew. At 5.5 months old, he still enjoys it. I also like that this small bag is resealable and helps with keeping it fresh.
I have been using this dog food for quite some time, until my dog started throwing up and basically wouldn’t eat much of this dog food anymore like he used to. I stopped feeding him this dog food and bought organic. My dog started eating again and stopped throwing up. I will not be buying this dog food anymore.

Decent price – dog eats this food like she’s never eaten before in her life. It can be hard to find this type in stores.
I received my first bag via a coupon from BzzAgent, for free… since price was not a factor I was more than open to seeing positive changes. I really wanted to give this a high rating because our little mutt really seemed to like eating it and it is the perfect size but I did not notice any positive changes in her. By the same token, I did not notice any major negative changes either. However, the first few days she had diarrhea and after that it went back to almost normal consistency but she was pooping about twice as often. She was also thirsty all the time while eating this.
I would say this food is average in quality, the pooch liked the taste but did not experience any of the claimed improvements so I do not think the price is justified. Others may have better luck with it but it just did not work better than our old food.
I received a free sample of Science Diet for our Papillon as part of a Bzz Agent. I was a little hesitant to try it because I had heard some stories from others who used it and were too happy. We tried it out and our dog is very happy. With her old dog food we would feed her in the morning and she wouldn’t never want to eat until later in the day. Now since we have switched she is real excited when we are getting the food out, she eats it right away.
I bought this for my Pembroke Welsh Corgi and she just loves it. The bits are small and very easy for her to chew.
