The main ingredient is corn, an awful ingredient to make up the foundation of a dog food. A few studies in recent years have shown, in very few cases, corn can be a decent protein source if processed to a very high standard (at cost). Corn in pet food is more often used as a very cheap non-nutritious filler, which, with typical processing is difficult for our dogs to digest. It makes no sense to include corn in a pet food where a decent meat ingredient is a far better inclusion, and that’s fact. Beneful is largely made from corn for one reason alone, and that’s because cheap ingredients ensure significant profit margins. Good for them, not for your dog.

In addition to focusing on expanding international sales, Hi-Standard is releasing a new product line later this month that is expected to boost domestic sales. Typically, sporting dogs and pet or companion dogs eat the same food, usually high in carbohydrates and grains. The new product line does not include grains, resulting in a food less likely to cause hyperactivity in companion dogs, resulting in improved health for the animal. He said this is in keeping with a national trend in the pet food industry to have foods that meet the specific nutrition needs of animals based on their lifestyles.
Hi-Standard Dog Food - Hi-Standard Ultimate
My husband is a veterinarian. He (and all his colleagues) feed their dogs varying options from Purina. The larger companies are the ones that adhere best to food safety standards and do constant testing on their food. Smaller companies don’t have the ability to spend as much money on this. Don’t be caught up in the hype of clever marketing that makes you feel like not buying a highly specialized and expensive food means you’re not a caring pet owner. Also, human nutrition and pet nutrition are not one and the same. Moral of my story? Ask your vet about what is best for your specific dog, and never trust the advice of a store clerk, groomer, etc. on its own.
