    You're right. I shouldn't have taken the bait and jumped into another dog food debate. Truth be told my dumbass could survive on milk bones and cheese.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    If 75% of the field is on Pro Plan, then if Pro Plan is really as bad as its detractors claim, the remaining 25% ought to be winning the national championship every year.

    The fact is, all these dogs are fed quality foods. The difference between those quality foods is negligible, and it isn't a factor in who wins.

    I have seen that as well Andrew with many dog foods where the cheaper high grain had higher kcal/kg. The fact is the Red Paw first three main ingredients are meat and dogs do much better on a meat base diet than plant base. Meat base compared to a grain base kibble also digest at different rates that produce energy for short or long periods of time. A meat base diet provides energy for longer periods of time along with a high fat content. The difference in amount of stool/waste on a high meat base diet compared to a high grain diet is incredible.
    As I said I know many people that use to feed not just Purina but other high grain kibble diets that had to switch to a meat base diet because dogs do better on meat.

Well if that's the case then they really don't know if their dogs would actually do better with something else if it hasn't been tried. Allegiance to Purina because of marketing support in the trial world is understandable but if Loyall all of a sudden outspent Purina for 5 years straight I think you would see the same support.

    My dog does great on Acana but the next one may not. Couldn't get a solid dump out of him with PPP. I'm not going to assume Acana is going to be the best for the next one.
    I had both my dogs on TLC at one point. They both did better on Pro Plan.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    A lot of Hunting retriever clubs, and field triallers use Pro-plan Sport, as well, many vets have zero issues with the food.

    A little light reading for you:

    I've read this before even posting. I'll probably catch h*ll for saying this but most vets will suggest Royal Canin and well, the first ingredient in their medium breed dog food is brewers rice.

    Ingredients lists do not tell you about the quality of a dog food. They do not tell you the proportions of the ingredients, nor how the food is prepared. They don't tell you about bioavailable nutrition.

    What tells you the quality of a food is the health and performance of dogs fed that food. Pro Plan is doing just fine in that regard.

    At the moment, my own dogs are on Loyall.
    It's possible that I'm wrong, but I thought ingredients listed on the bag were in order of quantity in the food, similar to human food labels?
