    Actually, the Purina Dog Chow isn't necessarily cleared: it has a 'no result.' But some of the Purina One brand (their version of a premium line) has been found to contain the contaminant.

    And Mordy's right about the quality - as usual :)
     
  5. that is correct however purina may seem to be good to some but it really is horrible and has bad ingredients... CORN is not digestible... anyway good luck on getting good foods

    that's one of the numerous myths about dog food.

    dogs can digest it just like any other types of grain. the problem with poor quality foods is that they use corn as a major source of protein, and plant protein is harder for dogs to digest than animal-based protein.

    in a nutshell, if corn is combined with good quality meat in a kibble, the simple fact that it contains corn doesn't make it worse than one that has rice, oatmeal or whatever other grain.
     
  7. no dogs cant... i just talked to my vet who has many years research and experience especially with dobermans and corn cant get digested even with kibble... we as humans cant even properly digest... and also....there is no nutrional value with it...

    corn isnt digestible anyway you cut it in humans or dogs

    lol how weird! I LOVE corn and eat it all the time! :p
     
  9. Dogs need a balanced meal like humans. Humans are omnivores. We need a mixture of meats and vegetation. Dogs are carnivores. Their digestive tracts are designed to process meat. While they do need some vegetation to aid in digestion, the type and quality are very important. Fillers like brewer's rice and corn gluten (which are the shells of these grains) are primarily undigestible. Corn and soybeans are vegetative products used in many dog foods that are leading causes of allergies in dogs.

    this right here shows your statement is incorrect and false... corn isnt digestible at all
     
  10. baby blue so do i but it doesnt digest well.... it has no nutrional value... it is just food that goes in and comes out... if you eat corn without chewing and pass feces it will have whole corns in them

    lol, I think it just doesn't digest well, but only my opinion. Mordy is the one with the facts to back it up not me :p lol
     
  12. i just gave you the facts... and you dont see that... i know the facts... my dogs only eat what is best for them that is why i have never had a dog with any sort of problems none well with the exception of tasneem which she came withs ome issues... i gave you your proof... im in the medical field... and actually going to finish my PhD and then go back to school for my animal science major... so yes i also have the facts. because i gave the facts from a researcher should show you...

    lol don't get so mad, I didn't mean you didn't have your own "facts". The truth is a lot of people have "facts" supporting both sides of almost every story you hear. As dog owners we have to look at both sides of the "facts" and decide which we agree with and which side of the story we will follow through with our own dogs. I am just one of those that agree with Mordy's side of the story.
     
  14. oh im not mad.. i ate pizza and my stomach hurts... sorry if i sounded mad... i feel like iw was kicked in the stomach... and i hate eatting pizza for this very reason... i sound testy for about three or four hours after eating it... sorry... about the attitude and i agree there are arguements for both sides... but the majority says corn isnt digestible...

    As a professional researcher, I can vouch for Mordy. Her research is sound; not based on a manufacturer's propaganda.

    I just posted about Three Dog Bakery's new dog food on a new thread. Three Dog has a new oven-baked dog food that has no animal by-product. In fact, they have their whole ingredient listing on their website.

    I am just disgusted with how dog food manufacturers don't care about the nutrition in the dog food they produce and use all sorts of stuff to lower their cost!

    does anyone know anything about Medi-Cal? I feed the preventive because Jamie was diagnosed with crystals in his kidneys when he was a puppy.. he's been doing well on Medi-Cal but I sure don't want to feed it if it contains euthanized pets.. that is disgusting!!!
