Purina Beneful vs. Taste of the Wild
Lately I’ve been trying to do more research on dog food because it seem that even though my puppies seem to be active and normal, they tend to scratch a lot. I know they don’t have fleas and they don’t have any form of worms because they recently went to the veterinarian for a checkup and they came back negative.
A few weeks back, I went to the farmers market in Lakewood, California and saw Yeti’s Pet Supplies. I wasn’t able to talk to them too much because by the time I got to their booth, it was already closing time. But Since they seem really friendly I was looking forward to checking them out.
On my way back from lunch with a friend, I happend to see Yeti’s Pet Supplies, so I was excited to see what they had at the shop. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for at first but then I talked to one of the workers and told her that I was looking to replace my current puppy food Purina Beneful for Healthy Puppies.
I honestly didn’t know how unhealthy it was until the girl at the store told me, but it was almost double the price for the same size of puppy food. But within the past few weeks going in and out of the vet, I would rather spend a large sum of money then settle for a cheap dog food that could hurt my puppy in the long run. She gave me two free samples of Taste of the Wild packages to take home and test it on my puppies.
When I got home I was a little hesitant about giving them the food right away so I went and researched Purina Beneful for Healthy Puppies and Taste of the Wild and thanks to dogfoodadvisor.com I was more aware of the ingredients in both and noticed that hands down Taste of the Wild was more healthy then what I was currently giving my puppies.
Beneful Dog Food
What an awful collection of agricultural waste and non-nutritious chemicals. Beneful Dog Food has the rather dubious distinction of being one of the lowest quality dog foods we’ve yet reviewed. Beneful Dog Food is primarily a grain-based kibble using a limited amount of chicken by-products meal as its main source of animal protein… thus earning the brand an unfavorable one star.
Taste of the Wild
Taste of the Wild dry dog food is a grain-free kibble supplying a significant amount of poultry, lamb or fish meals as its main sources of animal protein… thus earning the brand five stars.
So, for their dinner I introduced 1/3 of Taste of the Wild into their food.
Prior to the mix Coco (Shihpoo) was really bad at finishing the food that I would give her, she would only eat half, go play, then come finish it later. However Max (Maltipoo) has no trouble devouring anything that is edible. When I mixed it in, Coco liked the food so much she was actually coming back to me for seconds; and Max of course finished the whole bowl without even taking one breath.
Im excited to go back to the store this week and buy either a 15lb or a 30lb back for them.
