Default In light of the dog food recall,...RE: brand name dog food versus non-brand name

In light of the MenuFoods cat/dog food recall, would you still pay more for a "brand name" such as Nutro...when the food is essentially coming off the same belt/assembly line?

I'm curious. I'm sure the formulation CAN be different for a few brands, such as they add a few more vitamins. But the base product is still the same.

What are your thoughts?

(And for those of you who are concerned about the food recall, here is the list of recalled products. http://www.menufoods.com/recall/index.html)

I am not sure if I want to pay for kibbles at all now since feeding mine with home cooked food although I still mix some Canidae kibbles. One, he voluntarily eats his food now and loves it. I used to have to literally force him to eat. Two, I don't have to worry so much about the quality, or some kind of situation that can cause poisoning to my dog. It just gets dissapointing when you are spending money thinking you are buying the best for your dog and then suddenly you realize it isn't so. With what I prepare myself, I know what he is getting and it is human grade for sure.

As much of a pain as homecooking can be, I am SO glad we do after all the recalls. We're very careful about what we buy and how we prepare it, so barring some kind of grocery taint, we know exactly what they're getting!

What a relief ...

When you look at the situation I am not sure about you but it pisses me off. They charge from a-z price wise for baisically the same food just packaged under another name. I have been feeding Merrick's which is made from organic stuff and I only feed dry food but I am a bit wary of the what if's.

Default food

When my brother-in-law was a teen, he worked at a well known brand name pickle factory...a certain amount of the same pickles were sold with a generic store label... some were expensive and some were cheap, but they were all the same pickle.

My dogs do not canned food..they eat dry with human food as a suppliment..I may stop all dog food and make the recipe on DR. Foxe's web site...

if you were feeding the dry then you don't have to worry about it. Its only certain types of food that are being recalled.

also if hasnt been stated yet exactly what has caused the problem. That will be an interesting piece of information to learn. Also DomLee brings up a good point. I'm curious to know if the foods are packaged at this place or made at this place. Most of hte foods on that list sound like crappy store brands but i haven't heard of all of them so i can't be sure. I wonder how nutro can be on that same list if its supposed to be much better for our pets. I've always doubted nutro for some reason and never gave it to morgan, now i'm glad i did, even tho i would be feeding her the dry version.
