I chose it because it's the best quality that I can afford, and as long as he does well on it, that will continue to be my criteria. Their commercials had nothing to do with my choice, and I kinda resent the insinuation that those of us who made the choice to feed this brand, did so ONLY because somebody on the idiot box in the corner said we should.

Chill out. I was not bash BB, just the way it is "best for all" type thing. Plenty of other dog food brands say the same. Very confusing for a new dog owners to wonder what is right.

If perhaps I made some type of insinuation I apologize.

I don't dislike BB but both my dogs had problems wiith it, it was too rich for their systems. I switched them both to PPP SS, they are doing great on it.

If BB works for your dog(s), stick with it.

Nobody said people who feed BB only chose it because of the commercials. The point I see made about the commercials, is that the commercials are annoying.

There is no one food that works for all dogs. However, BB has had recalls and issues in the past that would have me looking elsewhere. Vitamin D toxicity associated with Blue Buffalo dog food, recall issued - Georgia Veterinary Medical Association

List of recalls for Pet Food Products from Blue Buffalo

I also like to know where the ingredients are sourced from, including the vitamin pak. There are many good foods out there so feed what works and with what you feel comfortable with. However, I would urge everyone to investigate whatever food you're feeding and make sure it does pass your comfort test.

I'm not sure how else to explain it. Lol. Perhaps its too many "heavy" ingredients.

I agree, it just is too rich for some dogs, not a bad food.

How about because it is an overpriced underperforming product.

This keeps getting repeated, "it's too rich for some dogs", but if it causes diarrhea in a good number of dogs, why is it not a bad food? I just don't think it can be called a good food if dogs routinely get sick from it.

I admit, I was the one who made the comment about it being too commercialized. I think it's annoying and a bit arrogant to say on TV that your product is better just because. I like the brands that are not commercialized and have quality assurance.

I'm happy with my home state making my food. My dog would always throw up at least once when we switched over to a new food, a few weeks after we did the switch. She has not once thrown up while on Fromm. I feel VERY safe feeding her a food that is from a family-owned company, that has never had a recall. She loves the food and is doing great on it, especially with her being 9 years old, I have to watch her.

If your dog does great on it, good for you. But, I'll be the idiot in the corner that has a very trustworthy company they can buy from.
