Dalmation Dog

Wellness dog food. How good of quality is it?

I always heard that iams,kibbles,purina,ekubma, and etc is garbage for your dog. I want my dog to live a long healthy life. I have a dalmatian and I know the are known to have kidney problems later on. I want to prevent this. Would feeding my dog all natural food like Wellness be good for his health?

    Wellness is good. Iams and all that you listed are crap. They are full of fillers and by-products that are not good for your dog and have no nutritional value.

    I prefer grain free foods. I feed taste of the wild.

    Good luck!

    ETA: Wellness core in there grain free version. You might try that.

    It’s good. The below website gives most of their products 5 stars out of 6. and there’s a breakdown as to why if you look it up.

    Incidentally, Iams, pro plan, eukanuba get one star.

    I really do like giving my dog Wellness brand dog food. It’s one of the best. He teats the Core – protein only formula because he has skin allergies. I have noticed a great improvement in his energy too. Wellness isn’t the only one that’s great. Natural Balance is too, so is Blue Buffalo. Look at the back of the label. If the first ingredients aren’t an actual meat… not by products… then you’re safe. But, I really do love Wellness.

    The other brands that you mentioned are mainly made of poorer ingredients and by products. It’s not the way you want to go.

    I would say Wellness is not the best, but not the worst. Iams and such are low quality, and actually end up costing you more than high quality brands. Where my dog would eat 1 cup of high quality food he would eat 4 cups of Iams, thus you must buy more of that food to get the same nutritional value. Oh yeah, and your dog goes number 2 more…

    It’s a great food, one of my favorites. A little pricey but worth every penny. I feed Natural Balance .

    Stay away from food that contains red meat like beef and liver – both contain purine that Dals cannot digest. They also need a food in the 20-25% protein range.

    I feed my Dals Eagle Pack Holistic Selects Chicken, Duck and Lamb formulas; my dogs are doing great on these foods.

    For a long time I fed my Dali Nutro Lamb and Rice but have recently switched to a geriatric formula.

    As long as he is on a low purine diet he should be fine. Also look into a diet high on omega-3 fatty acids this will help with his coat as dali’s are known to be prone to skin issues.

    A higher quality food could be expensive but well worth the costs in the long run.

    Not sure bout the Wellness brand…but the Nutro Brand has done good for me.

    Best of Luck!
