No - not surprised except for Iams Pro Active. I knew it had gone downhill since P & G purchased the company but to see it in the top 10 worst is very sad. Back in the 1980s it was considered a superior dog food.
I was surprised that the #1 worst (I won't give it away) is still being produced ! I haven't seen it in any store I shop at in decades.

Thanks for posting. I recommend anyone interested in this topic to get the Whole Dog Journal's annual review of dog foods. Good overview and includes the manufacturing process.

..... have a Golden day

Iams & Eukanuba (same company/different wrapper) Have you ever looked at the Peta web sight on this place... very disturbing.

Unfortunately we carry it at the store I work at. I'm at Tractor Supply. Fortunately we don't sell much of it, still sell a lot of Alpo though...

Take the review with a grain of salt as that's all they're worth.

The ratings and comments do not stand up to even simple scrutiny.

P&G has nothing to do with the product. They sold it off over two years ago. Mars owns it now.

Well, my Fenris lived on Pedigree adult and lived almost 11 years. That seems about average for a Golden. Even so, I'm going to switch to a higher-quality food with my upcoming puppy. I think its between these three:

Hills Science Diet

Blue Buffalo

Purina Pro Plan

Any recommendations are welcome.

I fed my first golden Eukenuba. She would get hot spots often. She passed at 11 and
was pretty sick. Got our second Golden and she would eat and start rubbing her
face on the wall. She scratched her whiskers off. I said something is not right
here. Corn in the Eukenuba. Switched to Solid Gold Holistique and she has
not had a hot spot since. Bad ear infection went away and never returned.
Who knew this?

My father-in-law feeds his now 16-year old sheltie Alpo. I really think it is 95% luck.


Blue buffalo was much too rich for my puppy(and our then senior). She hates Purina Pro, but lots and lots and lots rave about it here. So, from those choices, I would go with Purina Pro Plan. We switched her to grain free because she itches insane amounts so we do the salmon based Taste of the wild puppy.


Good luck!
