So, I just found this while looking for Lupine distributers near home:

pet supplies | quality pet food | dog food | cat food | home delivery | Reno Sparks NV

I think it's, like, the WORST dog food in terms of meat content I have ever seen in my life! The salmon and rice formula, I found TWO meat ingredients in the whole THING!!! And one of them is, like, ten items down the list!!!
id say nowhere near the worst grain inclusive foods ive seen (like the ones that put salmon first as the only meat source before any non meat ingredients)...at least they use a a named meat meal as the first ingredient, assuring that is the ingredient in the most quantity (even after cooking, most likely). i wouldnt put it at the level of grain inclusive foods like Innova, Wellness, Blue Buff, etc...but nowhere near the worst, either.

no, i wouldnt feed it. but, if i lived somewhere where my choice was iams/SD/Eukanuba or this, id choose this.

id rather see that than a food labeled: chicken, turkey, brown rice, potato, dried beet pulp, millet, salmon meal.....that is a food with likely little meat content and rice as the likely ingredient in greatest quantity.

INGREDIENT LIST:
Salmon Meal, Brown Rice, Milo, Canola Oil, Potato Product, Millet, Oat Groats, Dried Beet Pulp, Natural Flavor,
Lecithin, Chicken Cartilage, Salt, Carrots, Celery, Beets, Parsley, Lettuce, Watercress, Spinach, Calcium Carbonate, DL
Methionine, Potassium Chloride, L-Lysine, Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product Dehydrated, Cranberry,
Yucca Schidigera Extract, Oligofructose (prebiotic), Glucosamine HCL., Kelp Meal, Vitamin E Supplement, Ascorbic
Acid, Vegetable Oil, Biotin, Niacin Supplement, d-Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Acetate, Riboflavin Supplement,
Vitamin B12 Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Citric Acid, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic
Acid, Potassium Chloride, Ferrous Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Zinc Oxide, Copper Sulfate,
Manganese Sulfate, Manganese Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganous Oxide, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate.

I'd agree w/ Derek.

This food anywhere near the worst. Not even in the same ballpark.


I re-read the Old Roy label when I was in WalMart the other day. Almost made me want to cry for those Dogs who are forced to eat it. Seriously, it made me sad...then angry.

It's pretty awful, but I think there are still SO many foods worse than this. (Ol' Roy, anyone?) Kibbles N. Bits, Pedigree, Atta boy, things of that sort are all in a far worse category, with mostly grains, corn inclusive, AND little or NO named meat.

My mother-in-law feeds this, even thought I've GIVEN her Kirkland brand (okay, not perfect, but leaps and bounds better than this junk) and she still won't switch. Bleh.

Not that good, but in the salmon and rice formula, the first listed ingredient is salmon *meal*, not the wet stuff that loses most of its weight when put in kibble.

Compare to the first five ingredients of Ol' Roy:

Ground yellow corn, soybean meal, ground whole wheat, corn syrup, poultry fat

It's not even close. A food with a meat *meal* as the first ingredient versus something where the first animal product is the fifth ingredient -- and it's just *fat*. And corn syrup in dog food???

This line of foods generally has a meat meal as its first ingredient, which pretty much rules out any contending for "worst dog food" in terms of meat content (or otherwise). Too pricey for what you get inside the bag, but far from the worst food.

I don't even want to know. If you think about it, even fecal matter is a "meat derivative" when it's the end product from digested meat. Gross, I know, but you have to look at terms like these with a fair bit of cynicism.

I gotta stop coming into threads about horrible dog foods. My blood pressure can't take it, I just get so pissed. The first 5 ingredients for that Purina crap, and Ol' Roy sounds like someone is about to bake a loaf of bread or something.


Here's what gets me also, go onto their websites, and look at customer reviews, and how they gush about how good the food is, and how well their dogs are doing on it.:frown:

lol. Well, I know it's not the worst, guys. I was being sarcastic, considering they're a smaller company trying to appear as though they're selling healthy *cough* crap. People will actually buy that crap, that it's good food because it comes from a small, local company. Then again, people buy that Eukaneuba and Iams are the best dog foods. *GAG!*

Anyways, I just thought it was funny, so I thought I'd share.

Definitely not the worst. Our vet put one of our past dogs on SD R/D. His hair started falling out and he didn't lose any weight. I looked at the ingredients and didn't have to read any farther than this: Corn, peanut hulls (23%). Might as well just leave the lid off the garbage can and let him eat that.
