Good dog food options
Bred and showed dogs for a number of years. Have 3 now.
Feed them either Merrick or Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul. When we lived on STX, we shipped it in and sometimes were able to acquire it at Superior Pet on NSR.
Would not think of feeding any of the commercial dog foods as they have little nutrition.
Sure, your dog will live on it but would you feed filler to your children? Likely not! That is what is in Purina, Science Diet, Iams, Pedigree, Beneful and most of the commercial brands contain. They all meet the MINIMUM FDA requirements.
These companies advertise a lot because they are owned by large food companies and the advertising sells the food. The other companies never advertise other than some small print ads in breeder magazines.
Science Diet says recommended by Vets. Total bullshit....Science Diet contributes to the Veterinarian Association huge sums of money for that endorsement.
I'm not a Veterinarian......but I'm married to one. She says Beneful is the worst.
We buy Loyall dog food from S&D feed near Caribbean Auto Mart on STX for our dogs.
I buy Merrick from Chewy.com and have multiple bags shipped in via Paradise Freight.
It's a miracle that dogs have survived for hundreds of years without these special diets...:@)
My standard Poodle outlived his average breed lifespan by 3 years. We got him at 2 as a rescue. We only fed him raw meat and bones. A Vet told me he'd be dead by 8 y/o if that's all he ever ate. He lived to be 16! He was one healthy, happy boy!

I have a white golden retriever who has a real sensitive tummy, so we get our dog food from the vet royal canan gastrointestinal dog food do they have that kind of food on stx. Tried other food but she gets bad diarrhea tia
everything you need to know about their food
My dog is an Austrailian Shepard 15 yrs old. I feed her Purina One dry with 1/2 can of Purina One ground on top from Kmart.
She has never had one single health issue.
I think she still has a couple years left.:D
I went with Taste of the Wild when one of my dogs developed allergies that affected her skin when she was around 10 years old.
It was amazingly effective tho expensive.
