|I'm sort of new here...I had an account back in 2010 but my pup had developed bone cancer and had passed away so I deleted my account.
Anyways, when I was here the food snobs were just horrible. I can't even count the times I got my tail chewed out for not feeding raw, or not feeding a quality kibble, because honestly I just couldn't afford it right away for one, and two...this is the internet, and I'm not going to jump when I'm told without doing my own research first. I did end up feeding raw for a few years, in fact we just recently decided to make the switch from raw back to kibble because it was cheaper when it came to feeding a 200+ pound dog.
I now feed TOTW Sierra Mountain Canine, it has no poultry or poultry products in it as Zane my Saint is highly allergic to Chicken and Turkey(per elimination diet). My personal opinion is that IF you are in the position to feed a better than average dog food, it should be done, just like if you can afford steak over ramen noodles...eat the steak. But all that truly matters is that they eat..whether it is home cooked, raw, Purina, or Wellness Core...as long as your not starving them, beating them etc...then it really should not matter.
If someone asks me what I feed my dogs I tell them, but I don't elaborate on why I feed it to them, or the quality of what they are feeding unless I am specifically asked. The food snobs were honestly the reason why I closed my once paid dogster account. I actually got HATE mail because I couldn't feed my dog anything but Purina at one point. It was stupid, and I hope to wagging tails it has changed.
