I use canned mackerel. I have no qualms about it because it is a highly anti-inflammatory fish, the omegas are excellent and it is so good for the animal. One of our responsibilities on earth is to take care of God's creation and even if you don't believe in God, if you own an animal who is basically 'captive' to you then you have to give it what is best for him/her and the body's needs. Animals are not vegetarians, so it's OK!

You are right to be mindful of their vitamin needs. I use Canine Whole Body Support (a powder made by Standard Process Co., all natural). Comes with a small scoop. I give one scoop in the morning meal, one at supper. They also get glucosamine/MSM for their joints.

Home cooked food also keeps the teeth cleaner.

I am NOT surprised. I will never feed it again. My dog lost at least half his coat on Blue Buffalo.

He is doing exceptionally well on this new brand, and one thing I like about it is, the food is as close to food for human consumption as one could get.
I am talking about their canned food.
The beef stew brand looks every bit as tasteful as beef stew for humans.
Another thing, all ingredients are from here in the USA, so I don't worry about those inferior foods from China.
I am happy that I found this product.
As a side note, the dog food advisor gives it a five star rating, which is the best.

Bob.
Four stars....not five

I'm not a fan of either company, they are both full of it, but keep in mind that article is written and owned by Purina, so is not objective and could be as full of lies as most of what Purina sells.
