What really counts is does a food have plenty of each nutrient needed in a digestible form without having too much of the ones that can be harmful in excess. There is no way to tell that from a list of ingredients. Dogfoodanalysis is a joke. They don't do any analysis, just biased opinions based on speculation about ingredients with no studies to relate the ingredients they call good to dogs' health. More urban legend than science. If your dog is doing well on either or something else, I would stick to it.

Adriana Originally Answered: I just cooked Indian rice, Basmati Brown Rice, &I don't know if it came out right! And is this rice healthy?
I just made Basmati rice for dinner and NO it should have the same texture as a long grain rice. You did not cook it long enough. I don't even measure my rice and water. Here is how my mother, grandmother taught me. fill your pan halfway with water then put the rice halfway up the water. that way you have about twice as much water as rice. Always use cold water and put it on the stove on high with no lid. Bring it to a rapid boil and then turn it down to low and put a lid on it. Cook it on low for about 10/15 minutes until it looks dry but not burning on the bottom. Rice is a good food. If you think about it some of the healthiest people on earth are Asians they diet is primarily seafood and rice. Remember though rice is starchy and therefor does have carbs.

There are several good foods out there. Look for something that doesn't have corn, wheat, or soy in it. Why lamb and rice? "Taste of the Wild" has a couple of good ones - Bison/Venison and Wild Fowl. These have NO grain products. Diamond Natural has a lamb/rice. You will pay more for a good food but you will feed less because the dog's body will use more of the food and they will poop less, so you end up feeding less than you would a food with corn.

Hello I'll put a link below for you for the ingredients section of a great website dog food aid and you will see why you do not want a lot of those ingredients you have listed in your dog food. You will find plenty of other options at that website which does not just look at kibble but different styles of dog food some of which are very interesting. Hope this helps and good luck.

First, I would suggest something different - as they are both about the same. Get a food without corn, wheat, or soy products to start. If you want to really compare the good breeds, here's a website that will help. www.dogfoodanalysis.com

That's like asking which turtle will win the race. Both of them are sub-par. I don't like "chicken by-products," which both have, and I don't like corn gluten. So I have to give the edge to Exceed. What other brands are available to you?

Jehu Originally Answered: is raw food like beef and lamb good for my 1 year old rottweiler?
I've been feeding a raw diet to my dogs for about 10 months now, and they're doing great on it. Cleaner teeth, fresher breath, less gas, smaller stools, no "doggy" odor, and a healthier coat. Not to mention meal time is always exciting! A proper raw diet consists of about 80% meat, 10% meaty bones, and 10% organs. Variation between red meats, poultry, and fish make for the best nutritive balance over time. Here's some good links to get you started on making an appropriate raw diet for your dog: http://www.rawmeatybones.com/petowners/w... http://www.rawmeatybones.com/diet/exp-di... http://www.ukrmb.co.uk/images/ww.pdf http://www.rawfed.com/myths/ http://preymodelraw.com/how-to-get-started/ http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/rawfeeding/ Hope that helps, good luck!
