I am considering trader joe's dog food or holistic? Cody has been eating nutro max and his stool doesn't look all that good. I heard that holistic is really good, but I'm interested in trader joe's dog food. Does anyone know if it is any good. I remember posting something similar about a few weeks ago, but I don't recall getting any feedback on my subject only a list of different brands.
I remember picking one of their dog foods or treats up adn it started with corn so I'd say no. I didn't look at any others though. Have you thought about diamond? Its a step up from nutro but there are a ton more better than that to.
can you find an ingredients list for the food you were thinking about?
Maybe they have changed it then. It seemed weird to me they would have such a crappy dog food so maybe they upgraded them. I'll look at mine next time I make my way out there. I like their fruit roll thingies.
has anyone tried holistic then? I rlly want to try trader joe's, but so far no good. Employee's at trader joe's feed their own dog the same food and they posted pictures of their dogs on a bulletin board. But I can't really say I can trust them 100 percent because they work there, lol.
Our dog will only eat TJ's dog food. Which is nice because my Girlfreind and I are students and it is inexpensive compared to other brands. When we first got our dog she wouldn't eat any type of food. The vet gave us close to 30 different sampples to tryout. We found TJ dog food one day and tried it out. SHe loves it. The biggest problem now is the nearest Tj's is a couple hours away. Hope this helps. You can always try it out and if they don;t like it donate the unused food. Someone would be happy to take it.
I dont know if this will help but my mom swares by trader joes she buys everything there and it has done her right as far as a person I dont see why it would be bad for your dog I never knew they made dog food but i am sure its good all naturel is the way to go I have heard alot about changing a dog over to veggie diet.. good luck let us know if ;you tried it and how its working...
Trader Joe's Holistic Dog Food is the only food we will buy for our Chihuahua anymore, she loves it. And the quality is great - free range chicken with no meat by-products and all kinds of fruits and vegetables listed as ingredients. Plus it has high fiber content and it is not too expensive for small to medium sized dogs. Previously I used Iams and Nutro which I will never buy again after discovering this food. Highly rec'd. I think the brand is made by Bench and Field and is 6.6 lbs for $8.99.

I am giving Cody kirkland lamb and rice and he loves it. I might try trader's joe, but here are some of the stuff in kirkland: lamb not frozen, brown rice, barley, carrots, peas, potatoes, white rice, flaxseed.
I've been using TJ's dog food for about a year now. My 7yr old Shiba became diabetic about 1 yr ago, so I was prescribed a special food that can only be purchased through the vet. It was very expensive, so I searched around for all types of dog foods that might be similar. Turns out that the Trader Joes Lean dog food was so close regarding the natural ingredients that I switched. So far its been great, in fact my dog has lost a good amount of weight, and actually loves his food. He used to wait a while before eating when it was served, now he runs to it. I sound like a commercial but its true.
I can only imagine that the regular food (non-lean) is just as good of a product.
By the way, it is very inexpensive.
Now here is the one downside,.. no biggie,.. I've only seen the food in small bite pieces, not the larger bite size.
My recommendation,,, go get it. Its all natural, and TJ's food is always health concious.
I have just started using their food for my two puppies and they love it (I was worried that you could use it for both puppies and adults). I originally tried it because I have had such an incredible experience with their personal product (I left Keils for TJ shaving cream $34 to $5 for a comparable product). Like others I also did a lot of searching into different foods and was using Royal Canine but found that TJ’s was comparable and they seem to really like it.
from what I remember the ingredients are quite similar to the kirkland one. I think kirkland lamb and rice is only like 16 bucks for a 40 pound bag and chicken is like 15 for a 40 pound bag. Lol with 15 bucks you can't even buy a 20 pound bag of nutro or a 35 pound bag of purina puppy chow. I saved a lot of money using kirkland. Would anyone happen to know how much does the trader joe's one cost? I didn't go there for awhile.
I was at Trader's Joe last night and was checking the ingredients on their dog food and cat food as I heard people are getting food their. To my surprise, the dog food and cat food are not really good. Both the dog and cat dry food do contain wheat, corn, gluten. The only dog food that TJ sells that doesn't contain those is the holistic grade package, however, the holistic grade still contains pomace which I wouldn't want to feed my dog.
Yeah, Nutro is not that good too. They don't make dogs poop firm and this will create the anal sacs fluid problem, like scooting
I feed my dog Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul and I am very happy with it. Really good ingredients with no wheat, no corn, no by-products, no pomace, no BHA/BHT.
