i just went through the dog food list and highlighted the offending ingredients in red (according to Natural Abundance, anyway. I thought this might be helpful for easy reference.

I'm not sure what the story on oatmeal, barley and flax is. . Will have to do some more research and let you know what I find. . . Each of the "highest ranked" dog foods have at least one of the above grains. .

Cleo, Tell your dad he is great and he sure does his homework. You're lucky to have such a smart father.

My girlfriend feeds her dachshund Wellness dog food which is supposed to be another of the good foods along with Canidae and Timberwolf.

From the ingredients of their Super5Mix Chicken I can only see Oatmeal as being the only questionable ingredient?

What do you all think? Great forums by the way. :)

Me and Max used to eat Wellness, and we agree that it's very healthy for you. . but my dad was not as happy with it because for whatever reason, and I think this is not supposed to generally be the case with good food like Wellness, it made our poops also very "healthy." And, by way of "healthy" I mean "GENEROUS!!!!"

So he made us switch. . but we sure loved it.

Woof!

i'm adding timberwolf and wellness to the list. also, according to timberwolf, oats and barley are good for stress and the digestive tract, so I am going to de-red those items in the list for now until I get clarification that these grains are good, while others are bad. . .

As the list above evolves, I think we are starting to see some clear winners and losers. . . next, I will add links to their websites. .

Oscar and Olivia Loved the samples, I may start purchasing this food for them as it sounds like it has good ingredients and they seem to like it. It is somewhat pricey compared to the big name brands, but as little as my dogs it I think it will be worth it. ~Chrissy
