John asks…

What is the best brand of dog food for small breeds?

Before I adopt a dog, I want to know which brand of food I should consider getting it. Preferably dry dog food, but if you know good wet ones, feel free to recommend.

What do you feed your small dog(s)?
How much does the food cost?
What is the quantity bought? (# lbs.)
If you give your dog several brands; in what order would you rate each’s quality?
How much does the amount you buy last? A month, two months, 2 weeks?

What is the best food for small dog breeds?

I have a mini pinscher and a shih tzu and I am currently feeding natural balance petfood but I am considering changing to a different company. Any suggestions?

I feed my little girl Nutro Ultra. I like it because it is a holistic food and is packed with superfoods. She likes it because it tastes great… Or so I think… Haven’t heard (or seen) any complaints! Hahaha This is the only food I’ve seen that has so many superfoods in one bag. You’ve got carrots, spinach, cranberries, pumpkin, avocado, eggs, blueberries, and so much more! Also, Nutro does not use any ground yellow corn, no by-products, and no artificial colors or flavors. This is a wonderful food!

Maria asks…

What is the best kind of small breed dog food?

I have two female min pins. They are both healthy and in excellent shape. I have always fed them purina pro plan for small breeds but its rather expensive. around $1 a pound. I’ve tried some other cheaper brands before but it doesnt go over to well with their digestive system. They end up crapping like 10 times a day. Is there any other comparable kind of dog food I can get for a cheaper price? Thanks

Here is a site that will show you which dog foods are the best and the worst. I suggest that you get any one of the dog foods that are top rated.

Most of grocery store dog food formulas, like IAMS, Pedigree, Science Diet, Purina,and etc contain “meat and bone meal” which has been known to contain dead dogs and cats that were euthanized in animal shelters. Their bodies are picked up and bought by the truck load by “rendering plants” , that also pick up road kill, dead live stock, and etc. They are shredded, and boiled. They skim off the fat on the top of the “soup” and collected it and sell it to pet food companies as “animal fat”, the rest of the animals’ remains are crushed up, dried and sold to dog and cat food companies as meat and bone meal.
You can read more about it here.

Here is an article where the owner of a rendering plant talks about it. He says that cremating the dead shelter animals would cause pollution, and that rendering them is good.

Here is further information on what you shouldn’t see in the ingredients list in your dog’s food.
