Default No more Beneful!

When Omari came to stay with us about a month ago, he had been on Beneful for many years. Amazingly, he had healthy skin and coat, no tear stains, pretty healthy for 10 years old except for sore legs. Well, since there'll be no Beneful at my house, I immediately started him on good quality foods. Just this week he started to act like a new dog. He plays which he didn't do before. He prances around. This has been consistent for several days now. I'm thinking it's the improved nutrition and getting rid of the harmful crap. Now I'm watching to see if the joint supplements improve his pain/mobility.

Oh lordy...I am SO happy the little guy came to stay with you for a while and you could get him on some good stuff! Sounds like it is certainly making a huge difference. Hopefully he'll be able to stay on it and not go back to that other junk

That's awesome! Beneful sure is a bad quality food that unfortunately many owners still feed even after all the links that say not to are out there

Great news about Omari. He's a lucky guy to have new experiences and a better quality of life with you, even if only for a short time.

Oh, I'm pretty sure his mom will buy him better kibble from here on out. For now, he's enjoying some other goodies mixed with his kibble (THK, S&C, and home cooked). Mine are so picky I have to change it up frequently. We just started using Verus for canned food. They LOVE it! Same price range as the Merrick. I suspect Purina may have already messed with that formula as Omari and Piper each had an unexplainable bout of diarrhea.

It makes sense to use better quality dog food, not like chis eat a lot any way but worth it in healthier dogs.
Even when we had a rottie and a lab mix we still fed Wellness or we also used a dental formula from our vet, saved on teeth cleanings..
A chap bag is $25, a better brand is $55. sounds like a lot until you factor vet visits on a lower quality food..
I tell people all the time, you're only going from $1 to $2 ,it's really not that big of a deal.. and it's so worth it..
I'm so glad your baby is off Beneful, hard to get people to ignore that food with their cute commercials. Beneful has actually made dogs really sick, many have died.
