Science Diet, nutrients and quality ingredients?
I suspect a troll here but let's see.
On what basis would you define Innova or Canidae as having "better"
ingredients? Please define what that term means. Does it mean that the
ingredient "sounds better" to you from an emotional point of view, or
that the ingredient brings a higher level of digestibility, broader
spectrum of amino acids, lower levels of calcium and phosphorus, much
higher level of proven antioxidants? What measureable things would you
use to define "better".
Flax seed does not contain sufficient insoluble fiber to effect satiety
in obese dogs. The only place Hill's uses cellulose and penaut hulls is
in diets designed for obesity. Of course you know that, you're just
hoping readers on this NG will be ignorant enough to believe you when
you try to insinuate cellulose and peanut hulls are used in all Hill's
foods. Flax seed would contribute additional fats which would be
contraindicated in obese prone animals.
The first ingredient listed in Science Diet Canine adult is chicken,
not soy meal so I'm guessing you'll start singing the praises of
Science Diet now? . Please let us know just exactly why soy meal is
"bad" for dogs? Please be sure to cite your references for this claim.
Good grief your vet must have graduated from vet school well over 35
years ago. Hasn't he gotten to the point of retiring yet? Colgate
bought Hill's in 1976. What a silly thing to say without checking your
facts. You just end up looking kind of ignorant. Unless of course you
once again hoped that readers on this NG would be so ignorant they
would buy this nonsensical story as well.
