Pet Food with Natural Ingredients -- Purina ONE® beyOnd™
Purina ONE® beyOnd™ is an adult dog food that claims to "offer positively good, healthy pet food with no corn or wheat." Dogs are natural carnivores. They will eat almost anything (omnivores), but they want to eat meat and thrive on the high protein. Trouble is, meat is expensive, and apparently most consumers won't pay a lot to feed their dog meat.
Many expensive commercial dry dog foods are grain-based, and often corn-based--in other words, high in carbs, not protein. Despite their health claims for dogs, the ingredients in the Purina ONE® beyOnd™ Chicken & Oat still include a lot of grains and vegetables, sounding more appropriate for the human diet than for dogs, but of course, we humans are the ones buying.
