It is extremely high in protein, so I would not feed it to an adult giant breed dog. (Great dane, Mastiff, etc.) Although I am guessing it is a puppy food or small breed food.
Also, it has not corn or soy products in it. Which are really bad. You do have Chicken meal and Salmon meal, as well as dried whole egg. All of which are very good for dogs.
So, my answer would be: “Yes, I would feed this to my dogs.”
Is Garlic Good To Deworm A Dog ?
If You Feed Your Dog Garlic Does It Get Rid Of All worms My Uncle Would Always Feed His Dogs Garlic Nd He Sed It would Get Rid Of Them Even Up To The Fleas Nd Ticks Bhut I Just Want To Be Sure
Garlic repels fleas, ticks and other external parasites. As far as I know it does nothing for internal parasites.
Have you actually researched dog food?
I mean finding out what is actually in the food. Did you find out what by products are? What is animal digest? What garlic does to a dig? I don’t mean reading/listening to advertising. Who’s going to say,”feed our food, it’s made from crap”?
If you did research, what do you feed your dog?
I meant dog, not dig,sorry
Thanks for the response Julie D.

Thanks for the response Onyx
Pampered, I knew most of what you s,aid as I do research, a lot. I would love to check out your site. Can you provide a link? The links you posted here do not work.
Oracular Bells, thanks for responding
STBERNARDMAMA, Raven, Kelly, Thanks for your answers.
Thanks to all who answered. The TD’s were not from me, I do not do that to people who answer my questions. I have asked for your thoughts. opinions, findings and do NOT td you for answering, whether I agree or not. Several great answers, Thanks again.
Yes, I have. I was feeding Merrick ALS before I acquired a dog that couldn’t tolerate grains, then switched over to Natural Balance. After doing further research, I once again switched to Taste of the Wild, which IS a much better food than Natural Balance, and actually a little cheaper for me too. I pay $35.99 for a 30 lb. Bag and feed the Wetlands formula.
Add: I forgot to mention that I use to feed Nutro Natural Choice for almost 3 decades, until the quality of the food took a *dive* about 4 years ago.
Add #2: b.w., I just went to your profile and saw that you live not too far from me. Do you have a lot of dogs to feed? If so, you might want to check out K-9 Specialties on Mound Rd. Near 13 Mile Rd. In Warren. I PROMISE you they are the cheapest place to buy pet supplies in the state. They’re a family owned feed store and I’ve been shopping there for about 35 years. Just thought I’d let you know in case you’ve never heard of the place.
