Question by Pilot ~ canine son!: Can you tell me the difference between Canidae’s new formula and Nutro Natural Choice dry food??
I feed Pilot Nutro Natural Choice dry food, and I’d LOVE to get your input on Canidae! The comparison, the ingredients? Cost is no issue to me. Comments on the new Canidae ingredients as I’ve heard it has changed??
I forgot to mention if chicken is an ingredient: Pilot is allergic to “chicken”. :o(
Answer by Shanna
I wouldn’t feed my dogs Nutro. Nutro is a company that imports ingredients as well as uses chemicals in their formulations, which Canidae doesn’t do. Also, Nutro uses Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex which is a synthetic vitamin K known to cause liver problems in animals yet they continue to use it.
In my opinion, Canidae is hands down better than any Nutro product.
Edit: Here’s a good article about Menadione/Synthetic K and why you shouldn’t buy a food that uses it:
Edit: Peachy, Diamond also manufactures Solid Gold, so if Canidae is going down hill, so is Solid Gold along with many others including Chicken Soup brand, Natural balance and Wellness. It’s not the manufacturer that makes dog foods suck, it’s the ingredients.
