Hi Kerry

<br/>What you describe is the standard analysis that dog food industry must undertake and are required by law to display on food bags. I would strongly advise that you purchase premium-branded dog food as they are continually conducting nutritional research and subsequently improving their products. If you are not convinced with commercial diets, then why not check the internet for home made diets - more time-consuming and costly, but at least you know what's in the food.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition.

Does anyone know if they test these ''premium dog foods'' on animals? I have heard that Eukanuba does terrible testing on animals for their food...
