I buy dog food at tractor supply. We had then on the high dollar stuff thinking it would be better for them and they stopped eating! They were losing fur and everything it was horrific. So i put them back on the crappy tractor supply brand and they're doing good! Go figure!

 ty I had to go look cause I knew we'd had it once...I don't think Pickles would eat it so we tossed it ...I know we've done that and it's the only one missing (we use 3 different kinds to give her a variety)...

Quoting CollinBayleeMom:

EVERYTHING Purina makes is JUNK, but Beneful is THE worst!  Just look at the ingredients!

I agree! I used to feed my other dog Purina products until my vet said the purina was causing kidney problems in him. As soon as I switched, he was fine. That was about 15 years ago. With Wolfie, I feed him Fromms. They are a small company that has been around since 1904, and they grow their own ingredients.

All you need to do is check out the first three ingredients to see if a dog food is a good one. The first ingredient should always be meat. As an example..

Beneful's first three ingredients..

Ground yellow corn,chicken by product meal, and corn gluten meal

Fromms first three ingredients..

Duck, Chicken meal, and chicken

YIKES! I feed my dogs IAMS. It's the only food that actually fills them up so they don't want to keep eating (and gaining too much weight) all day long. I bought store brand dog food just to get us by until I could get to Costco, and OMG it was like dog chips. They were constantly hungry - total junk food!

That explains why my dog Chewbacca stopped eating while he was on Beneful.I paid so much fot that thinking it was great for him and then my husband went and bought something much cheaper, he loves it.I am so picky about brand names and when we went to a cheaper dog food, he almost immediatetly started to get so much better.He is back to digging holeslaughingI am glad you shared this as I had already stopped buying it.He is such a wild man now
