Thread: Waste of money?

  1. #1

    Waste of money?

    I occasionally pop a tin of wet dog food in with the dry diet. Is this stuff nutricious as they advertise it to be?

    Wouldn't know as I don't use it, but I do add a tin of sardines in vegetable oil once a week, certainly gives
    a good shine to they're coat.

    I do what mossypaw does. How ever I'm changing my dogs food. They are on canagan at present but becoming to expensive at 30 a month for 4kg. I prefer to feed them a cereal grain free etc food contain a high percentage level of meat. Most seem to be around the 25% meat content but with new variety like canagan being 80% there is roughly at additional 10 extra per kilo which equates to a lot more money. Pets at home are doing a good percentage of a salmon one for really good money in think at 72% salmon content but meat wise massive difference in price.

    If you want to add variety to the diet, fresh cooked, oily fish or fresh meat is the way I recommend you add the appitizer value. Tinned oily fish in oil is good too.
    There are so many vaiations & quality of raw materials in commercial wet & canned food to really make sense. - If you buy it fresh (or frozen) & prepare it yourself, you really know a bit more what you are giving.
    The factory stuff must pass some quality standards & may be nutritious, but never forget the cause of the BSE problems. - Bad materials, not properly sterilized in production of feed.
    I once went for an interview at Pedigree Petfoods factory for a job - after that experience , seeing the stinking, rubbish that they cooked up, I would not use their products! I'm far from squeamish but that really made me gyp!

    Personally I think you are wasting your money on canned wet dog food. People mistakingly think its meat in those tins.....just take a look at the label probably states about 4% meat so just what is the other 96% made up of in this tinned 'meat'?

    Yes. Essentially the same as your dry diet, but 70% water! I wouldn't bother, it's a nutritious sludge and sticks to the teeth more than the dried and anything that sticks to the teeth promotes dental disease.
    There is more difference of opinion and less fact on feeding a dog/cat than perhaps any other area of veterinary work. All of the commercial brands are nutritious and balanced and most are fine for most dogs. Pick one, and stick to it.
    All the stuff about "antioxidants" "immune strengthening" is nonsense

    Bakers advertise their tins as "mini fillets" is that not clear deception?
