I have ALWAYS fed my dogs Pedigree and Purinia until I learned about what is in that food! (In addition to organs (the nourishing part), this stuff can contain almost anything — feet, beaks, undeveloped eggs — anything except quality skeletal muscle (real meat). YUK!! I felt like such a terrible doggy mommy. My dogs now are fed Exclusive brand dog food which is a slight step down from Blue Buffalo (Blue Buffalo rated at 4 out of 5, Exlusive 3.5 out of 5) but costs about half as much. I get a 16 lb bag for around $22. My dogs seems to really enjoy it. I have also noticed we have not had any accidents in the house and they eat so much less since it is so much better for them and they are getting much better quality food.
