When I went to a rangers baseball game last saturday with my friend, it was doggy day, so alot of people were bringing their dogs so they could sit in the sun and roast :(, it was 90 degrees out and dogs were sitting in an area right where the sun was shining, anyways back to the topic, Since it was doggy day they were passing out bags of dog treats and sample foods, so I grabbed a bag and their were two good sized bags of avoderm dog food, My dog has already tried it, it has omega 3 &4 in it, and proetin, and no by products. I was just curious if it was healthy, I have never heard of it, but I let my dog try it since it had all the healthy stuff in it. Angel liked it! Does anybody feed it to their dogs?
I have heard of it but never tried it. I could never find any in my area and it seems like it had something in it that I didn't like but I can't remember what...it's been awhile since I was looking into it. I do know it is ALOT better than Walmart and petstore brands!!
I have never heard of it either. I did a search and came up with their website. http://www.breeders-choice.com/avoderm.htm Looks like you can buy it at Petco and Petsmart. Curious to see if anyone has used this brand before and what results they got.
I have never tried that food either bit as I recall it uses avacado as the protein or fat content. It is one of the foods that Petco used to recamend to people if there dogs had skin and coat issues or food allergies when I worked there like 12 years ago, LOL. Wow that was a trip back to the old dog food slinging days. Now my living room looks like Petco!
I prefur to have my Bordeaux with fur instead of a cork and bottle ;)
I haven't rated yet but it looks like around the mid to lower 90's. I will print it out and rate it for you this afternoon sometime to see where it really rates at.
In my food choices I really look at the first five ingred. I like to see more then one meat meal. Canidea has chicken meal, turkey meal, brown rice, white rice and lamb meal in that order as the first 5 ing.
Avoderm has chicken meal, ground whole brown rice, ground whole rice, oatmeal and rice bran.
Thanks for all the advice, I think I am going buy avoderm, just to try it out, and I'll start out with a small bag like riley said! I already know Angel likes avoderm, Angel is not picky, but we had the sample dog food packets by avoderm, lamb and brown rice dinner i think it was called. If that doesn't work out i'll try to get chicken soup or canidae :)
I think it is very healthy for dogs it doesn't contain corn I ude to use Prina dog foods for mine but they had no energy and got diarreha from time to time, since I put them on Avoderm they have lots of engery no allergies and their coat and skin improved greatly.
Although I only looked at the beef kibble ingredients, the first (and main) ingredient is flour. A grain (dogs don't need grain, IMO) which makes it a filler (as far as I'm concerned)--the #1/main ingredient is a filler--not good. Maybe some of the other flavors concentrate on meat?
When looking for a kibble (in my OPINION only), look for something without any grain (no wheat, corn, rice, etc.). Dogs are carnivores, they don't need grain and, based on my research, grain products are a frequent allergen to a lot of dogs.
