Apologies, somehow quoted the wrong person's comment, you quoted the comment that referenced Unilever and when replying via mobile (for some reason the formatting is all squiffy) I've grabbed your comment but not the one it was in response to (which didn't seem to show up as a separate quote).
Had many a vet say to me that you never give your dog Dentastix unless it's a rare treat, they are so bad for them and fattening (despite the annoying advertising making it that it should some kind of 'daily health' product). I wouldn't eat a Mars Bar every day, why on earth would you expect your dog too!
I agree too ...I absolutely wouldn't feed my cats on the foods listed. However, they do get Dreamies as a treat & as a reward when playing with them. Dry foods crack off the dental plaques that can build up and cause decay and gum disease. Often the hidden sugars and ingredients in some less pro health foods, especially wet foods, are to blame for dental issues in cats and dogs. If you do convert to dry food feeding it is VITAL to ensure access to plenty of water. The first ingredient in most wet foods is actually water! I second the person who says people look at how expensive a sack of dry food so buy Whiskas etc not realising that it actually works out more expensive per day to feed their pet. I use the bottomless bowl program that petshop.co.uk operate but appreciate that it may be cheaper to source it elsewhere sometimes. At the end of the day it's about what you are happy to feed and prepared to give your pet. For me that is quality dry food. Hope that helps someone :3
I haven't a clue what you're talking about. I never even mentioned Unilever?
Thanks for the info. I don't own any dogs atm but I'm planning to get one soon
