Common Grocery Store “Diet Food” For Your Dog
A customer and I were talking about diet foods for dogs.
There are a BUNCH of good ones. I decided to do a survey of the common “grocery store” or ‘non-boutique’ healthy weight foods out there for your dog.
I looked at Pedigree, and Purina (two kinds) offering.
Purina Proplan “Savor” Weight Management is 8% fat, contains a healthy probiotic and touts the presence of glucosamine, and the first ingredient in the diet is chicken. You get a 34lb bag for $45 Purina Proplan “Focus” Weight Management is 8% fat, but contains no probiotic, and its “glucosamine” (means, ground cartilage that you find in meat and bone meal from chickens and fish) and the primary ingredient is chicken. You get a 34lb bag for $45
Purina ONE Smartblend is 8% fat and includes ground of meat meals for the glucosamine, but the diet lacks microbes, and its first ingredient is turkey. You get 31lb for $35
PEDIGREE Healthy Weight Adult Dry Dog Food Roasted Chicken & Vegetable Flavor, 15 lb. Bag $13.50 (Means 30lbs costs $27) is 7% fat, contains ground up meat meals to be able to say there’s glucosamine in it, it does not have microbes and it’s primary ingredient shows corn first. It’s “just alright” in a pinch.
Purina Beneful Healthy Weight Dry Dog Food, Healthy Weight With Real Chicken – It’s 8% fat likie all the Purina offerings, contains no probiotics or microbes, and has no glucosamine. Chicken is the first ingredient. You get a 40 lb. Bag for $34. And The Winner:
