Saturday question of the week... #2

With all the current specialty dog food brands - IAMS, Eukanuba, etc. on the market - would ALPO still be considered a good/heathy dog food brand? Before chiming in -let us not forget that old, "Duke" lived to be something like 120 years old in human years eating only ALPO or so said Lorne Greene in the old commercials.


  1. Who knows? I think they're like people. Some of us can eat crap and live to 100.

    I do notice that when I give Bernie cheaper brands, she gets ear infections but the fanciest we go is Natural Choice. We're eating the Lite version now. Too much junk in our trunk.

    I remember Duke. :-)

  2. I would never buy IAMS. I've heard several reports that they do horrible things in their research labs to live dogs. I don't know if it's 100% true, but it disgusted me and I just won't buy their products.

    Pedigree is the best dog food for my dogs. They seem to thrive on it, and they like the taste. Yeah, I think Alpo is STILL a healthy food for dogs. It's been around for years. They must be doing something right. :)

  3. Do you want the truth? Because it ain't pretty.
