Ok, I need to take a survey of what people feed their pets for a school project (required for my Vet Tech program). If you could all answer a few basic questions for me, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
Info I need:
Species (cats/dogs only):
What food brand do you feed most often:
Form (dry, canned, both, other):
Where do you purchase it most often: (I don't need to know the name of the store, just the type, i.e. grocery store, vet, pet food store, feed store, etc.)
I will... it still amazes me how they really go out of their way to promote their own food (and I don't mean Purina). I'm actually pretty discouraged by this to be honest. I could go on and on, but I'm actually afraid to speak out (even on this forum) for fear that my comments will come back to haunt me. I really don't know what to do. I feel like they are trying to brainwash me and it really irritates me.

Beagle dog 2yrs old Innova Evo - dry food only (I supplement fresh food) Purchase at local feed store High quality ingredients and high source of protein
Basset- dog 7 months Wellness puppy - dry only (supplement with fresh food) Purchase at local feed store High quality ingredients. Innova Evo upset her stomach
2- Cats 7 & 8 yrs old Innova Evo - dry food and sometimes wet food too Purchase at local feed store High quality ingredients and high source of protein. Cats eat much less food and look great!
1-Cat 9 yrs old Natural Balance dry food and sometimes wet food Purchase at local feed store High quality ingredients. Both Innova and Innova Evo caused significant stomach upset. This brand is proving to be much better for her.
All pets in house are spayed females. The only illness we have in the house is Beagle with seasonal allergies (pollen and grass).
I want to get off topic on this thread so bad RE: the pet food reps but i wont

Chinese Crested Hairless 8 yr old female (spayed) Nature's Variety Prairie patties (she's blind, deaf & has very few teeth left and despises kibble so WTH why not. get it at a doggy daycare next to my job

What food brand do you feed most often: Chicken Soup for the Cat (Dog) Lover's Soul, Diamond
Form (dry, canned, both, other): Dry
Where do you purchase it most often: (I don't need to know the name of the store, just the type, i.e. grocery store, vet, pet food store, feed store, etc.) non-chain pet food store
Why did you choose this food? Terrific Pets had some good articles on the types of additives and ingredients for pet foods and this was the best and most affordable. Also my vet had recommended I change my dog food after my older dog had a ruptured anal gland.
