Pedigree is a very low grade food, full of fillers and ingredients that will do your dog far more harm than good.
High quality foods are not likely to be found at your grocery or big-box store.
Feed your dogs a food that:
-Lists an identified meat source as the first ingredient.
-Contains at least 2 meat sources in the first 3 ingredients.
-Has no unidentified meat ingredients, such as “animal by products”. These can be anything, including road kill and cat/dog meat. Yuck.
-Is free of wheat, soy, and corn.
-No artificial anything.
-Made in the USA.
One of the best and commonly available foods out there is Wellness, with their EVO varieties being of the highest quality.
There’s dozens of brands much better than Pedigree. Read the labels. You want a food that has meat as the first ingredient at the very least; not meat meal or by-products, meat. And no corn, wheat, beet pulp or sorghum which are cheap fillers that dogs can’t digest well and often a cause of food allergies.
A few of the good brands are Innova, Orijen, Timberwolf Organics, Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold. Select one and if your dog does well on it, that’s the best one for your dog. Just remember to make any change in food very gradual (10 – 14 days), starting with only about 10% of the new food. The good brands cost more but it pays off in your dog’s health, plus you feed less because they get the nutrition they need from less food.
**I answered this question a few days ago, so here’s the answer**
I don’t feed it, but here’s what I think of it:
PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition for Dogs
Ingredients (first 4-5)
**Ground Whole Corn**
Terrible first ingredient. Corn is one of the most common foods a dog is allergic to. Has barely any nutritional value- just a filler.
**Meat And Bone Meal**
Does not specify what type of meat which means it could be another dog, cat, or whatever is considered meat. It doesn’t tell what percentage. Even if it’s 2nd on the list, the first ingredient could be 50%. It also doesn’t specify whether it is meat meal and bone meal, or meat and bone meal together to make it second on the list.
**Corn Gluten Meal**
It’s corn. Refer to ingredient 1.
**Animal Fat (preserved with BHA/BHT)**
BHA and BHT are preservatives that some vets say can cause cancer. This also doesn’t specify the type of animal- once again, it could be even a dog or cat.
Overall, these ingredients surprise me. It doesn’t even tell you what meat they’re using, meaning they can get away with feeding your dog other dogs. The others are corn, which is one of the most common foods that dogs are allergic to. BHA and BHT have been known to cause cancer. This is a very low quality food that should be avoided.
If you would like to know some high quality dog foods, look into Wellness brands, Innova brands, and Wysong brands.
