Since grain in dog food was mentioned, I am curious as to how they can make a dry kibble and make it stay together without any grains? Aren't the grains like rice a binder to hold it together? Are there truely completely grain free foods and if so how are they better?

Lol... I'm not trying to sound like a broken record buddy, but I don't think you believed me first time I told you. Most of the grain free foods actually contain some amounts of potatoes, and they all contain omega rich oils, so that is enough to hold the kibble in place. Potatoes ARE a form of carbs, but they are not a grain. The energy your dog needs will come from the meats, the starch in potatoes, and the fruits it has in it. That is all. Grains really do just fill your dogs stomach up with filler, and does NOTHING for our dogs.

The link that "shes got heart" posted entitled, "7 Food ingredients that could be hurting your dog" says, and I quote:

Quote:
When making an informed decision, you must know which ingredients are better than others. When you look at the dog food label, the following are the kinds of ingredients that you are looking for:

- Human Grade Ingredients Chicken meal

- Turkey meal

- Fish meal

- Rice

- Potatoes

- Lamb meal
Rice is listed before potatoes, why is that? It is a better starch nutritionally speaking I believe.

Not very good ingredients overall Corn gluten is horrible and only one of the first 6 ingredients is meat. Also, the list of ingredients is by volume so that food has more corn gluten than fish meal or salmon meal. Can you afford something better such as Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul or similar?

It's not bad since it is rated at 4 stars out of 6, if you are talking about the Nutro Ultra Holistic Puppy kibble?

corn gluten sparks a lot of allergies in our dogs and is something that can't even be processed. its primary use is to give your dog the sensation that it's full, pass the corn and be hungry again much sooner. Youll spend almost the same amount going out to buy more of the lower quality kibble then if you just stuck to a quality kibble. Try and pick something with at least a 4 star food..

I've read that when they do not identify the type of animal and just generalize it with phrases such as "animal fat" or "meat by-product" you may very possibly be feeding your pets downed (downed=sick/dying/diseased)horses, cattle, and even our beloved pets who've been euthanized and "disposed of" by the local vet.

Yeah, but if it aint broke dont fix it. They are doing awesome on it and have had absolutely no troubles at all. They where on a "high grade" diet before and didnt do so well on it.
I believe it all depends on the individual dog and what their individual bodies need. What works for one wont work for all.

Do what you want but I think you are wrong and no, it does not "depends on the individual dog and what their individual bodies need."
All dogs need pretty much the same diet because they are biologically the same, but yes they can survive on things that are bad for them regardless although I would rather they have a better quality of life. My sister-in-law has three purebred Australian Cattle Dogs and she feeds them that Ol' Roy crap and says they do fine as well. Using that logic, I know people that eat McDonald's everyday as well and they are doing great.
