Hey Becki and everyone..
I guess I am coming in a little late here, and u may have decided on your food already. I just wanted to add my thoughts
. I fed my 3 dogs and 3 cats Science Diet. My cat Snuggles has been having seizures and Jasmine my papillon, never had normal stools, always sick, but never anything "wrong" I was hearing some things about SD that weren't good. For example, what Jade said about those preservatives..BHT etc...someone told me it was very bad for the animals. It had certain by-products in it.And not to gross everyone out, but a few realiable sources have told me that these foods are being made from "recycled animals." I was appalled at that. I thought by buying one of the most expensive brands and it being in the vets office, I was doing the best for my babies. A friend said when I asked "then why do they sell it at the vet" that they get it for free at the office, for advertising their products. I even had a VET himself,( that I met while buying natural food at a store and he was there buying it for HIS own cats) tell me what was actually in this food, and how crappy it was, even thou he sold it in his own office!!! There are many good natural foods out there. I noticed u listed all the ingrediants. and the Mixed tocopherols are very good preservative. I purchased something called Solid Gold for my dogs.(the cats hated it) They love it. And Jasmines tummy problems have gotten better since changing over and getting off SD. Snuggles(who had no justified "cause" for his seizures has not had any to my knowedge since switching over, knock on wood. Not saying it was caused by the food, but we have no causes, just a speculation about everything) The cats are on something called Natural Balance, made by Dick Van Patten. Other good foods are what Jade said Flint River Ranch, Innova Natura, California Natural(cats I think) and Wellness. I have found that they even run about the same price, the smaller bag of Solid Gold cheaper than SD! The only thing is, you have to know where to get them. There are store locators on their sites. I get Solid Gold and Natural Balance at PetCo. Pet smart doesn't have it. and Petco doesnt have the other ones I listed, they are usually at specialty dog/ cat food stores and Natural Grocery stores. I am not sure on the food you listed, the ingrediants look pretty good. I have also heard that Raw Diets are a really good way to go, but my dogs are happy now, so for now they stay on Solid Gold
Hope I could help some:cool:
