    well- I just got off the phone with the nutritionist at Midwestern pet foods. and the nutritionist- refused to answer the question of - how high ,the temp of cooking and how long, he said he'd have to have someone get back to me. and yes some of the vitamins are man made,( synthetic) and yes some of the omega 3 and 6 come from flax seed, he knew that it did not absorb as good as fish oil. But said they grind it up very fine.I do not belive him. given the fact that , the other brand of food they make is pro pack, and it is full of corn, bet pulp, chicken digest(the stomach contents ) and it is --protein-- but garbage !! actually, and he did say that the meat comes form the left over human meat, which means ,
    it is stuff we wouldn't eat!! because if it was good , he would have said , it is grade A human meat, and -- it is not muscle meat-- which is what good food uses-- the roasts,steaks,chops, this company is a new branch for midwestern pet foods, it has only had 5 reviews to date, and remember,--even the truth about pet foods, lists for MOST BREEDS, --- and bulldogs need better food, and better quality, it may have the same things but often - how it is even made , makes a difference!!!!
    ------------------------------------------------------
    Earthborn Holistic Pet Food is a product of Midwestern Pet Foods. Manufacturing is in the U.S. at company owned plant. Two requests for further information sent to Earthborn Holistic Pet Food have gone unanswered. Additional pet food information will be added when/if Earthborn Pet Food responds. No response to questions of cooking time and temperature.
    ----------------------------------
    The Earthborn Holistic Pet Food Representative stated meat ingredients are highest quality pet grade.--doesn't even start out good enough for us to eat.---
    ------------------------
    these are the first 5 ingredients, that would be in bulk enough to count.--

    Ingredients: Turkey Meal, Chicken Meal, Whitefish Meal, Potatoes, Chicken Fat
    ----------------------
    the nutritionist also did not know what the source of the L-Carnitine, came from, AND IF HE DOESN'T -WHO DOES??
    the rest of the food brands are full of --
    ((CORN, BEET PULP)),((( SOY, ( AS LETHACYN),,(( Rye Flour, Potatoes)),,Oatmeal, Ground Barley, Ground Brown Rice,( INGREDIENTS IN PARENTHESIS(MS) ARE CHEAP FILLERS FOR PET FOODS.
    would you want to guarantee that this brand made in the same plant wouldn't have some or more of those cheap fillers in the food???? I WOULDN'T. BUT IT IS YOUR CHOICE !!!
    AND I bet on further research - they have more brands, but are trying to sound natural, and healthy, for new pet owners.!
    If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.

    This is very good information. As you can see, not all of your information is on your dog food label!

    Thanks for the info ... I bet that nutritionist didn't expect anyone to ever ask those questions.

    @Teresa

    I think most of us here who have tried Fromm, Nature's Logic and Nature's Variety can all agree these are the best foods. Allergies or not. Fromm is the only one with probiotics in writing in the GUARANTEED analysis.

    Nature's Logic is all natural, no man made vitamins ect.

    Nature's Variety offers the Instinct- which is completely grain, potato and gluten free.

    I have some small 2oz samples of Natures Logic if you wish to try them. We also have an awesome coupon in the Bully Market to try Nature's Logic for free!

    My opinion/advice. Pet foods have far less regulation than human foods and pet food companies can be very deceptive regarding the content of their products. If you don't do the research on the foods then you really don't know where they come from and the quality. Thankfully Linda has done all the research so she shares her findings with us, she has helped me alot. I personally believe that good nutrition is key to your over well being, human or animal. With all the potential health problems with bullies I always thought it was super important to give Samson a very healthy diet, the best I could afford basically. A pound of prevention is worth an ounce of cure.

    Yes. lol! I would if I had/wanted a human baby. @TessaAndSamson made a great point that pet food is far far far less regulated than human food (you can feed them euthanized pets). like vitamin supplements for humans, pet food companies can pretty much make any kind of claims to make us think their products are incredible. sometimes gov't regulation is good, but not often.

    I would think that people at these food companies have employees available to answer our nutrition questions cause they want to be able to stand behind their product and make $$$.

    I am sure that baby food is regulated closely. Especially being for babies and you know how protective the world is of that but you never know. I personally made all my baby food for my first daughter and will for my next one also. It is so easy and cheap that I cant see why anyone who has an hour extra wouldnt. I could lick my fingers when feeding her my food but something about that jarred stuff grosses me out. lol.

    I agree with the above - the dog food industry is just simply not regulated to the extent that human food industries is so that's not a fair comparison however, the point is well taken. How do we know for sure certain foods are cooked at certain temperatures? How come a certain dog food with less desirable ingredients produces better results on some dogs? Does a guarantee that the probiotics on the dog food are alive REALLY matter to us or would be buy the food anyway based on other attributes or ingredients?

    I think we would all like to know and understand, as best we can, EXACTLY what's going in to our dog's bodies to sustain them - and, to that end, knowledge is power. In the end, the decision on what to feed Fred is yours, @Teresa - and it sounds like you've made a decision on a food that you believe is pretty good and, with a few small possible exceptions, it probably is - and it's definitely better than anything you're going to buy in the supermarket. I hope you'll keep up updated and let you know how Fred does on his food because, most times, the most powerful advertisement for a specific food is seeing great results from the dogs eating it.
