Make sure you make extra copies of the 4$ Rachel ray coupons because you can only print twice from the same computer 😉 luckily the library helps with having more computers… Oh and this is is my first bag of the Pure Balance. We have a new Bugg puppy (half Boston half pug) and a rescue female breeder Boston we got a few months ago and is 5. We have been giving them pedigree while researching better dog foods so this is the 1st one we are trying and will be gradually mixing this in which their existing food. With our previous Boston which we lost over the summer, he was fed Blue Buffalo but was way too eexpensive!

As I mentioned, this food was created to fill a niche for affordable, simple food for dogs. Many owners were clearly moving in this direction, and Pure Balance attempts to balance the quality that should be in a grain-free or corn-free food with price, which can be a factor for many dog owners. And they do a pretty great job of it!The Pure Balance product line includes three canned dog foods, two claimed to meet for adult maintenance and one recipe for growth (Puppy formula).In the past few months, there have been a number of Pure Balance dog food reviews from long-term Pure Balance users that they are noticing a difference in their dogs and their dogs’ foods. There has not been any official ingredient change, and I cannot find any solid information, but this makes me a bit wary. Make sure to check manufacturing dates when buying this product.Pure Balance canned dog food is a meat-based product using a significant amount of beef or chicken as its main sources of animal protein, thus earning the brand 5 stars. “Our customers told us they wanted to be able to feed their dogs a dry food made with pure ingredients without having to make a special trip to the pet store,” said Jody Pinson, vice president of pets at Walmart. “We listened and are excited to offer Pure Balance...at a price our customers can afford.”There’s a good level of fiber in this product line with the stated amount in an average package to be close to 5.5%. You’re also looking at a fat level of 15% and around 24% protein. This is done through a guaranteed analysis so you can be comfortable of the levels being accurate. Pure Balance dog food does well here.

I have been researching the OL Roy Brand "Pure Balance" and came across this forum. I have a schnauzer with diabetes. Recently I switched to Pure Balance because the brand i normally feed was not available any longer in my small town. In desperation I looked at Wal Mart (small town, only place to shop) I searched for a dog food like the one I had been feeding until I could find/buy my normal Brand (Diamond Lite) I get blood panels done on my dog on a regular basis...and other than the diabetes all things were normal range. My dog became ill this week...I thought it might be pancreas issue so I took him to my vet yesterday. Everything came back normal EXCEPT his liver panel! The readings were in the red zone...his kidneys, pancreas and sugar levels were fine! So, wracking my brain to figure out why this happened..I searched the internet and lo and behold...there are posts about Ol Roy dog food containing MENADIONE SODIUM BISULFITE COMPLEX ..look at the ingredients posted by Brydean. This ingredient is toxic to cats and dogs. Apparently, pets are dying from liver toxicity from this ingredient! What I am finding out is that distributors (Wal Mart etc) repackage dog food (made in China or food products supplied by China) and do not always include ALL the ingredients or are not specific as to what the ingredient really is ie. "animal digest" . The labeling also leads you to believe that the food was made here in US, when in fact it is NOT. We should be able to buy a safe pet food based on honest labeling of a product. I immediately stopped feeding the Pure Balance and he is now on Blue Buffalo. I will be taking him back for xrays and ultrasound next week...and I will do another blood panel in about 10-14 days to see if there is a major change. Now, I cant prove that it IS the Pure Balance...but Im thinking it may be the reason because that is the only thing that has changed in my dog's diet...AND he had normal liver readings prior to this...and BTW..he has only been on this food for about 3 weeks...I just opened the second bag of Pure Balance (which is now in the garbage!). Just some information that might be helpful..again I cannot prove that this dry food is the culprit. and I am basing this opinion on information I have discovered about the MENADIONE SODIUM BISULFITE COMPLEX..but I should have a good answer soon. I will re-post when I know something more definitive.We feed our english bulldogs (who can have skin & stomach allergies to feet allergies the Pure Balance Buffalo dry dog food. Probably have for over a year and can tell you after going through all kinds of food at a local pet store….. this one has done the trick. We are very happy with it. I have also bought the little tubs of wet and have had no problem.
