Dog food with NO chicken and NO grain? - Chronicle Forums
alexadry--I've been avoiding dog food with chicken byproducts for a while now. Thanks for the list of foods without it. Great hub!
Wow, after reading your post, I went and checked the cans of dog food in the cabinet, and thankfully, none of our dog food lists chickory, chickory root, or inulin in the ingredients.
Thanks for the information on chicken. Just when I thought I was making intelligent choices after doing research on dog foods. There’s so much information to absorb. Which grain free, chicken free hard foods for small breeds do you know to be of high quality? Thanks!
