70s bag

Also, this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine: I personally feel that the whole raw/grain-free/all-natural premium whatever food trend goes hand in hand with food trends seen in human diets (paleo, gluten-free, organic). In and of itself, not a bad thing - it certainly allows for a bigger market variety for dogs who truly have food intolerances, skin issues, EPI, allergies, the whole shebang.

HOWEVER - and this is where I get angry - it’s rooted in elitism. Many of these supposed “higher end” foods are not financially accessible to a large swathe of the population. I’m sorry, I can’t justify spending $70 on one bag of food when I have two dogs, one of which requires 4-6 cups of food a day depending on the calorie content of the food just in order to maintain a healthy body weight. There is little to no scientific backing to the claims of how much better these premium foods are and they use a lot of coercive, fear-mongering language and that then gets transferred onto humans who are made to feel like shit for not feeding Acana or Orijen or all organic homemade raw by a personal chef for the dog.

I’d rather see a dog fed on “lower quality” food than have one go hungry. Feed what you can afford and what makes you and your dog happy. Think critically, know your pet, know when it’s at its healthiest and when it’s doing poorly. Every dog is different. Don’t be a fucking dick about it.
