Rachel Ray's dog food? o.O

So until today I didn't even know that Rachel Ray HAD her own dog food brand, but now that I do, I'm kind of interested in it. It seems to be a pretty good quality dog food, and it's cheaper than Taste of the Wild, Blue, or Canidae. Anyone have any experience with it? I might switch Grem to it when I have some money of my own.

Here's the ingredients list:
Turkey, turkey meal, chicken meal, dried peas, tapioca starch, whole dry potatoes, poultry fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), dried plain beet pulp, flax seed, natural chicken flavor, salt, calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, zinc sulfate, choline chloride, zinc proteinate, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of vitamin C), manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, niacin supplement, calcium pantothenate, biotin, sodium selenite, vitamin A supplement, riboflavin supplement, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin B12 supplement, calcium iodate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid

Looks decent to me, but a few more opinions would certainly be helpful.

I would not feed it. It's only a very minor step above Beneful and other similar grocery brands. I like some of her recipes though- for humans!

Here's the link LiliRay was probably talking about; Rachael Ray Nutrish Dog Food | Review and Rating

It rates below average.

Why do you rate it just above Beneful? Beneful is full of artificial dyes and little to no meat... this isn't that bad and looks like a lot of "high end" brands of dog food. Is it because it is sold in Wal-mart?
May I ask what you feed your dog?

Because that is my opinion of it. Have you bothered to do any research on it before attempting to debate me on my opinion? Both Beneful and Rachel Ray are poor dog foods. One is just slightly above the other.


As far as my dog, I feed Blue Wilderness chicken formula and some homemade. It's not better because it costs more and because its not sold in walmart. It's better because it's better! Period.

It works for our dog. The OP asked for an opinion on it and I gave mine as did you.

First off the article you provided is dated back in Oct of 2010. Secondly, I was already aware of it and thirdly, no dogs died according to your article from the oh so creditable source by the name of "truthaboutpetfood.com".

Seriously? Find something else better to do with your time than to bash other opinions just because it doesn't agree with yours.

Sorry OP- obviously this went off topic.

Turkey, turkey meal, chicken meal, dried peas, tapioca starch, whole dry potatoes, poultry fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols),

I would not use it because of the poultry fat. A fat should be named on the label if not it can be old restaurant grease that has been re-processed.
