    The research in 1999? What research? Prey model dog food did not start coming out until around 1999 - that's where a lot of veterinary research pointed to TODAY's dog having carnivorous bias... and that's when you started to see a big shift in dog food ingredients to lean towards more meat, high protein.

    Far removed, yes. But look at your dog. Look at its teeth. Look at its physiology. Study the biological make-up of your dog TODAY. And tell me - where in that dog you are staring at now do you see a vegetarian? What you see is a domesticated adaptable animal totally dependent on the whims of its human companion. If you feed him nothing but peas all day long, he'll eat it. Doesn't mean his physiology can support it, but he'll eat it.

    But don't take my word for it. Do your research. My only request is not to get tunnel vision and look up one veterinarian from Perdue's word for it. Read as many sources as you can get your hands on and apply your logical thinking to weed out the kooks. I can't put an ounce of merit to a veterinarian researcher who thinks it's okay for dogs to be vegetarians. You got the internet. Use it.

    Bruce, I know you're just kidding around and I shouldn't be too serious... I guess my mother has rubbed off too much on me, I suppose. I've always thought my mother is crazy for going all-out for the welfare of dogs. All I really do is study everything for the welfare of my own pets and not everyone else's - 2 dogs, 4 birds, 2 turtles, 7 snakes, 12 fish, a colony of rats.

    Unfortunately, I feel that it's not a win-or-loss for us. It's a win-or-loss for our dogs.

    Okay, I really need to lighten up... @JAKEISGREAT! I can always count on you to knock me off my high horse! You'll have to do it again, girl!

    And since I've totally hijacked this thread... I found this great shed/lint remover thing - it's some kind of prickly material shaped like a glove that you can put your palm in and use it to wipe down furniture/clothes/etc. You rub the surface with the glove in one direction, then you rub it the opposite direction to get rid of the shed (into a trashbin or some such) so you can use it again! Pretty nifty thing and so far, it's working.

    hey --all you folks out there--thinking I am favoring a vegetarian DIET!!!!NO NO
    not at ALL dogs need meat high percentage of meat!!!! and by adding th efruits and veggies--(if you are feeding anything BUT FROMM food)) you need to add the veggies and fruit because you are getting very little if any at all in other brands!!! BUT even Fromm,!!!!!!! for dogs WHO ARE PRONE TO STONES--AND MANY BULLDOGS ARE because they do not drink enough WATER .. and by adding veggies and fruit --you help DILUTE THE URINE--and that helps guard against STONES/CRYSTALS!!!!
    and do not think you need the whole bag of veggies.. 2 baby carrots,1/4 cup green beans-2 to 3 sprigs of asparagus!!!that much is a lot to a dog!!! the percentage of carbs to meat should be less than 25%

    in summery just feed a little extra produce to help ,the urine--and produce is a good treat--much better than milk bone,pigs ears, dog biscuits, and such. thats all.
    If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.
