thank you, and natures Logic has a better review than Merrick. But they do not offer pre and pro biotics, as does Fromm .

and they will never show it. they were told to continue to address the high end market. so as most do they will just have differant levels of food. pricing the high end way up. go to the fromm home page and put in your zip. it will tell you where you can buy it. in 6 to 8 weeks you should see a vast difference. in coat, fur texture, stools. the lack there of.! do not over feed though . a half to 2/3 cup twice a day keeps them quite stout. that amount has kept many larger, more active breeds quite healthy for years. good luck.
please go to the fromm home page and click on store locater, it will ask for your zip. and tell you where you can buy this food. if I can find a dealer for a great food in Bulgaria, you should be able to find it in CA,
BY the way is that CA, as in Canada, or CA as in California?
Ca as in California and we are nowhere near the Oregon border unfortunately. Southern Cali actually so that is a no go. Too bad, dog lovers gold really does look good.
Hi there. I was talking about Fromm, and Natures Logic, Natures variety , and Merrick. in that order.
But Dog lovers gold must be made under a differ ant company name. I have never heard of it. But I will find out who makes it , and that will tell lots. everybody is branching out to make a new claim in the food business after 2007.and food recall. many foods are under another label. But it just means a different name same old business. Co, spend a lot to sell the sizzle, not the meat. it works for many folks to believe what the eyes tell them.
I will let you know who that food is under. take care. but trust the ones like Fromm who put the guarantee in writing that they guaranteed analysis is including the pre,& pro biotics, the lactobacsillis(MS) and those kinds of things are in the written proof. this boosts the immune system and helps digestion .much like yogurt!
I am on the home page of Dog Lovers Gold.
and just as I thought. It sounds good until you go to the Guaranteed analysis spot. these are the only items that they guarantee. all the rest is at their whim. and may or may not contain anything but a trace. NO quantity specified. no GUARANTY at all.(a trace amount is all that is required to say that it has it in the food) and even worse---there is no guaranty that it always has a certain amount.
here is what is says.
Dog Lovers Gold quaranteed analysis
Crude protein min 25.00% Vitamin A min
Crude fat min. 16.00% Vitamin D3 min.
Crude fiber max. 4.50% Vitamin C min.
Crude ash max. 7.50% Vitamin E min.
Moisture max 10.00% Copper min
Omega-6 fatty acid min
Omega-3 fatty acid min
no where does it list - in this guarantee. any of these items below, that Fromm does guarantee.
with similar, type products to do the same job.
Freeze Dried Aspergillus Oryzae Fermentation, Aspergillus Niger Fermentation, Bacillus Subtilis,
and what is this derived from-? Beta Carotene--
and what is the Lecithin -- derived from , I will bet it is SOY-- something most breeds do NOT do well with.(they don't say SOY though)
and where do the vitamins come from? are they natural occurring vitamins within products used or are they man made, and if so what country do they come from.????
and everyone knows that dogs do not digest flaxseed the way humans do ---so why use flaxseed,?? so that they can use an inferior fish . rather than SALMON which has both omega 3 and 6 .it is cheaper. and
even though it might be human grade meat, -- where does it say MUSCLE meat, prime cut?????? it should have those words if it is something you and I would eat, intestines, animal feet, but they are,- human grade and eaten by many races of humans, but muscle meat is only the roasts, steaks, those types of meat. they are prime cut, not just human grade. that is how they sell the sizzle--not the meat. it sounds good , but often is just that only sounds. like in the meat case now. you will see Angus beef, what is the other??? dairy cows! natural only means.what it may find in the field, it means nothing.
the advertising is so slick anymore, that the only warning they have to give of something harmful, is to put the ingredient in BOLD print. that is to be your warning, no matter how harmful it may be. sad----we are facing car salesman everywhere.!!!!!
that is very interesting Linda, thank you for looking into it.
you are welcome. what they don't say is as important as what they do say!
Our dog seems to have very similar symptoms and I was feeding her NutroMax for nearly 8 months and she was at the vet constantly, I also did the full work up to see what she was exactly allergic to. Anyway we now feed her the Royal Canin for Bulldogs and I don't care what others say she has done a complete 360 her eyes are all cleared up and her wrinkles stay a lot cleaner. This food also helped with the gas! I also give her Angel eyes it helps reduce the yeast, I haven't noticed a huge difference in her eyes and face but she no longer has those brown stains under her eyes.
Hi there. royal canine had a recall when all the others did back in 2007, the shape is great but it has ingredients I wouldn't use. But that's not why I am responding. the way to keep yeast infections at bay on face,paws, tail, and in ears ,is 50/50 % apple cider vinegar and water twice a week. they will never get a yeast infection again. also hydrogen peroxide will remove the stain. just keep it out of the eye itself. soak a cloth or make up square. I use those for everything from ears to tail.
I am new to this site... I just was reading about food fed to bull dogs.... I have had my two bullies on Royal Canin from the start and have not had problems with either one. What would you recomment feeding a bulldog? Thank you, Mom2bullies
