I notice the ones that have the highest advertising budgets are all on the "not aproved" list.

Maybe they could turn that around if they spent some of their ad money on improving their product.

AMEN!

I was going to say that I don't think anyone who knew enough to check ingredients ever believed Iam, Eukanuba or Science Diet were quality kibbles.

Well I think (my opinion only) the average Joe dog owner doesn't look at the ingredients, at one time I didn't. I bought the most expensive dog food at the grocery store and thought I was doing good. How horrified I was when I found out WHAT I was feeding my dogs. I did tons of research, printed everything out I could find and tried to educate anyone who would listen LOL Well I converted no one, go figure

Im suprised that a channel...animal planet or the discovery channel...doesnt play a special on like the truths of dog food....although animal planet might not be able to since they may be sponsered by alot of those brands.
I know I see Eukanuba commercials all the time when The Eukanuba tournament of chapions or something is on :(

Bruno's food is not on there at all lol. Guess that's because it's only supplied at the Vets?

I'm just gonna go a head and put it on the approved list lmao. Cuz I approve it 100% :)
