Gag, it's worse than I thought.

Those sound more like reasons to avoid it.

can you recommend a quality dog food that has glucosamine? sorry i should do my own research but figure you could save me some hassle. going thru the site you linked had a zillion different dog foods.
I take glucosamine myself actually.



You could look into a hollistic food targeted for senior dogs, I don't think it's a common additive.

I'd probably buy some supplements. Drs. Foster and Smith is a great place to get dog vitamins and healthy treats.


Search Results for glucosamine

Dog Joint Support with Glucosamine: Joint Care Level 3 at Drs. Foster and Smith

They have other products for arthritic dogs too.

Found a quality food with Glucosamine and Chrondroitin added to it. I've heard good things about this brand:

Re: What Pet Food You Use?

I use Iams, but my dog farts a lot, so I tried Nutro because it was supposed to help, but it didn't. So, back to Iams. Anyone else have this problem?

Re: What Pet Food You Use?

There's also nothing wrong with (so I've read) feeding your dog a raw diet. (Raw/lightly seared meat). I've read about it in lots of holistic dog magazines.

Does anyone do/have any information on that?

Maybe you just have a smelly dog. Lol, what type of dog is it? I know some dogs are prone to farting more than others.

Yeah, my uncle's dogs probably ate 10,000 chicken bones in their lives, and never did a problem result from it. They were lab mutts.

He's a boxer, and yeah they are notorious for farting. I've had several in my life, and they all farted -- smelly farts that are loud and make you think a person did it.

I always get a kick out of it, because farts are not funny to dogs, but they are hilarious to me -- so, my dog will make a loud smelly fart, and his expression doesn't change a bit. It's almost like he doesn't notice it happened. So funny to me.

Some photos, if you're interested:

my dobie farts all the f-ing time, he will get off the sofa strech out with his ass in the air and cut one loose, some times when we are on a walk or run he will fart with each step it's f-ing hilairious, to me atleast. and yeah they are loud and could easily be mistaken for human farts, but his don't usually smell.

i didn't click on the photos til after i posted but he is a good lookin dog i've never seen an all white boxer before

Re: What Pet Food You Use?

OK I completely forgot I started this thread but damn you people took right to it. Lots of different foods out there that you guys use. Have you guys ever heard of Natural Balance? The only chain that it is sold in is Petco and its also sold in some of the mom and pop independent stores. Its one of the most natural and healthiest foods out there. Its right up there with Blue Buffalo and Wellness and is usually cheaper. Feel free to check out the ingredients. I also started this thread to see what I could do to make any of you switch to Natural Balance as I recently started working for them a few months back. We do tons of events on weekends where we hand out free samples, Ive recently done a NY Mets game and the Apple Blossom Festival in Winchester. If your in the Baltimore area feel free to stop by our tent at the Dogfest in Timonium MD on the 19th and Ill gladly give you some samples. Hit me up if I can help you make the switch!
I guess I should say that I am NOT paid on commission so don't think Im trying to make money off you guys!
