I know some of you probably still feed Diamond but it is one of the worse foods you can feed. anyway when they have the afltoxin problems they purchased Solid Gold and changed the formula

Please look into the product before purchasing.

well her waste has never been completley solid and the smell is enough to make you pass out. she will eat the nutro but you almost get the feeling shes looking at you like "cmon dad is this the best you got?" shes never really hyper about food time but she gets jelious when bella gets hers. I dont like the low protien percentage or the amount of other ingredients. and last it seems like nutro was keeping her at the bare minimum for growth.

well i dont know if this was a ploy by dick van patton's corp. but i went out this morning to a petstore to get dvp. an employee told me to get solid gold, but after the neg. response on that, i got dvp. the only reason i went there was to get dvp anyways. now its just a feeding and waiting game.

i also purchased the dvp lamb log, holy cow did they go crazy over that. i had complete and utter attention.

Looks like excellent ingredients, however, I'm not sure if they were involved in the recall. I did a google search and found this:

You might want to check your bag of food, if it matches the article.

Nature’s Variety Releases Statement About Instinct Chicken Meal Formula
Posted on Monday, March 10th, 2008 at 4:17 pm in National Dog, Cat & Pet Info, Dogs, Pet Food Recalls & Safety.
By Emily Huh


On February 27, Nature’s Variety released this statement about their Instinct Chicken Meal Formula due to customer complaints about dogs having loose stools and occasional vomiting:

Recently, some of our customers who are feeding Instinct™ Chicken Meal Formula grain-free kibble for dogs have experienced loose stools and occasional vomiting. If your dog has experienced this and your bag of Instinct Chicken Meal Formula displays a “best if used by” date of 1/3/09 or 1/10/09, you may return it to your retail store for a replacement or refund. The “best if used by” dates are located on the back of the package.

Please be assured, Nature’s Variety has not changed the formulation of Instinct Chicken Meal Formula grain-free kibble for dogs. However, recent changes in production facilities caused these two code dates of product to differ enough from our previous product to cause some digestive upset in some dogs.


At Nature’s Variety, we make all of our products with integrity and care for the health of your companion animals, and we deeply regret this situation. We will continue to take any and all necessary steps to assure the quality of our products. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks again for choosing Nature’s Variety.

Nature’s Variety stated that the digestive trouble was happening because:

In essence, the two affected production batches of food are more nutrient-dense relative to our regular production batches. In other words, the Instinct chicken kibble produced on January 3rd and 10th is a richer food than your dog is accustomed to, which may cause some digestive upset, similar to transitioning diets.

good posting...

I am happy to see Science Diet, Pedigree, Eukanuba and many more in the one star section, too bad there is not a "no star" or "negative star" section

Didn't expect to see Canidae in the 4 star section...

as for the top rated food Artemis Mix I could be wrong but isn't 42% protein a bit strong...maybe that's strictly an adult food I was just browsing

I still don't understand the dog food "AVODERM" aren't Avocados toxic to dogs...

I wonder what the ratings are based of in this...

So much great information here, thank you guys. I'm planning on changing Kasha's food this weekend too, a mix of raw and kibble. I'm leaning towards Innova Dog brand, and mixing in some raw chicken maybe, kibble in the AM, and Chicken in the PM? Would I have to feed anything w/the Chicken or is it enough by itself?

I agree with the protein portion... I was feeding my dog Solid Gold Cub food but he was getting diarrhea from it. I read about it a little furthur and it was too strong in protein... so I downgraded back to Natural Choice... I have also fed my dog Evanger's dog food as well... Great stuff...

I asked for the post sometime back to become a STICKY about what foods are TOXIC TO DOGS but NO ONE seem to care to make it a sticky

Anyway, NO avocados are NOT TOXIC to dogs it is ONLY the seed inside.

I feed avocado to my dogs when I am eating it.

Has anyone heard of a dog food brand named: "go natural?" when I went into the pet store to p/u up Kasha and Cocoa's new food, (I went w/Canidae ALS btw not Innova) the lady also gave me a sample of the "go natural" I'll list the ingredients in order:

I'm not planning on feeding it to them b/c I want them to start the cannidae, it was nice she gave me four (4) sample bags of the ALS to ween them off the crappy Beneful brand they were eating. Just to tell you, yesterday when I mixed in the 1/2 cup of cannidae w/their normal feed, it was gone in maybe 1 1/2 mins-wow
