hey, I'm not defending SD or Iams...I just wouldn't think they were as bad as Old Roy.

Doesn't really matter because if it doesn't say Evo, Acana or Orijen...it doesn't enter my house :biggrin:

Possibly no difference Sara....as I said, I don't really care(which beats the other in terms of "awfulness") and wouldn't tell anyone to feed either food. My instinct tells me that Iams/SD are probably a bit better...but I could be wrong.

I agree that SD/Iams/Eukanuba/RC RX diets are not as bad as things like Ol Roy, Ol Yeller, K&B, etc but only marginally better. I don't recommend them to anyone anyways.

Another funny thing is that Hill's makes RX diets for every ailment out there. They tell their customers to buy their maintenance diets and feed those until their dogs/cats get something like kidney or liver disease or IBD. Its like Hill's knows exactly how to set up these poor animals to get the diseases that their magical RX diets can make better. Seems pretty darn fishy to me or at best a PROFITABLE business and nothing more. Granted every case of kidney and liver disease and IBD is NOT food related (ie genetics) but a large percentage of those cases are from inadequate nutrition for so long.

My list of foods that I think are the worst?

Any of these take the cake (I like that Abady is the first food on the list :wink: )

Next in line, not as bad as the above:

These are decent, if someone is on a super tight budget:

I picture Old Roy and companies like that....sitting in a room, conjuring up ways to make their food the absolute cheapest way possible while still being able to legally meet the requirements to put it on the shelf...their theme would be "how low can we go"...in terms of quality and price. Top off their Wal Mart affiliation and you have the perfect storm of garbage.

Again, I'm not defending Iams or SD or whatever....but its just my instinct that they are marginally better...but again, I could be wrong. Hell, they might be the exact same crap for all I know.

You're the first to ever tell me that LOL Even my buddy who is a DIE HARD Steelers fan never made the connection :eek:
JDat, make sure he sees the picture you used with your wife/girlfriend out here....seriously dude, its pretty close. :wink:

You should head over to Broncos training camp...they already have about 25 QB's in their mix. One more won't hurt :wink:
