Beneful is marketed and manufactured by Nestle Purina PetCare. Before deciding whether or not Beneful is a good dog food for your pet, there are some factors you need to take into account, especially the ingredients used. All Beneful dry dog food formulas contain ground yellow corn as their first ingredient, as well as corn gluten meal which counts in its first five ingredients. Despite being marketed as a healthy dog food formula, Beneful has been found to contain artificial chemical colors, wheat, sugar, soy and meat mainly from chicken by-products. It is for this reason that Beneful formulas are not recommended for use by dogs suffering from food-based allergies.

Most of the customer reviews you find online about Beneful dog food products have been negative, seeing as many dogs have experienced problems in digesting these formulas because they contain sugar. Another negative thing about Beneful dog food formulas that many pet owners have complained about is the fact that these foods are corn based. As a result of consuming Beneful dog food formulas, some dogs have experienced stomach upsets, low energy levels, as well as hair loss, with another dog owner even claiming that their pet died as a result of eating Beneful dog food. Other symptoms that have been displayed by dogs fed on Beneful dog food include bloody stool, incontinence, lethargy, as well as glossy eyes. Some dogs have also been reported as developing a lack of appetite and refusing to eat Beneful dog food, while others have developed skin rashes and experienced seizures.

Iams
One good thing about Iams dog food is the fact that Iams offers its dog food formulas in the mid range price levels, which means that you can buy most of your Iams dog food at various pet retail chains. Another thing that makes Iams dog food good for your dog is the fact that the company recently introduced its Iams Healthy Natural line which heralded its move towards more natural, protein-rich ingredients in its dog food products. In addition, all the brands and formulas offered by Iams are of a far better quality than the type of dog food you would typically get in a supermarket.

As one of the largest dog food producers, there are certain sacrifices that Iams has had to make, which has seen the quality of ingredients used reduce in comparison to the boutique dog food producers that offer albeit more expensive but all natural dog food products. Evidence of this can be seen in most of the Iams canned dog food products which are known to sometimes contain large chunks of bone and fat. It is for this reason that the general public has gotten the impression that Iams dog food products may not be as healthy as previously thought. What’s more, animal lovers are averse to the fact that Iams dog food products are tested on animals and this may influence some dog owner’s decisions when it comes to buying this particular brand of dog food.
