I have limited selections of dog food here in Okinawa at the base commissary. They just got in a few new ones so now I would like some feedback from the knowlegable food people ;D
I have been feeding both of them Iams for the past year as that was the best quality food they carried. They just added Purina One (Lamb& Rice, Chicken & Rice) and Nutro (I can't remember the flavors of this one). I would like to know which is the best food based on ingredients and nutritional value. Neither of my dogs seem to have any food allergies.
Mine are on Nutro and do great on it.
I suggest you read this article (& others) Labby/Laura has on her website:
Pay particular attention to the section on what to look for in choosing a food
Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]
Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":
If they are doing well on the Iams I would leave things as they are.
But in answer to your question, in terms of ingredient quality, I would favor the Nutro over the Purina ONE. I don't rate Nutros 'Max' or 'Natural Choice' range (too grain heavy) but their 'Ultra Holistic' formulas definately fair better. I actually fed Nutro to my dogs for quite some time and they did well on it.
Is there a good website I could go to to compare different dog foods? I know Less grain, more meat, but there are so many differnt kinds! Thanks for any advice anyone can give me!
If they were to carry Nutro Ultra, that would be the best choice of what you mentioned. But the regular adult not the Large Breed adult.
