Is lamb & rice better than chicken & rice?
  • Someone told me it's more beneficial if you give Lamb & rice rather than Chicken because Lamb is graze fed whereas Chicken's are fed by products,hormones, and kept in unsanitary enclosed environments..... Is that true?
  • Most American lamb is confinement finished also (complete with hormones, grain feeding, and antibiotics).  Check to see whether it says all-natural, hormone free, or New Zealand. 

    American chicken does not contain hormones.  It's illegal.  Antibiotics, however, are present, as are high levels of salmonella and high acidity associated with grain feeding.

    Judge by the individual brand and MOST importantly what's better for your dog.  Chicken is often more easily digested but lamb has higher levels of lineolic acids and natural GAGs.  Lamb is also often better accepted by dogs with food sensitivities.
  • I personally feed my dog's a chicken diet and have had no problems with that.

    Lamb and Rice was originally made for dog's with food allergies to Chicken products.

    So if your dog is on a Lamb and Rice food and does develop allergies you are going to have to transfer over to other alternatives such as kangaroo or hypoallergenic and such foods.

    Really the choice in type of food is yours and what your most comfortable, as well as I am sure it varies by company as well.

    To that end, I keep in my mind Solid Gold Wolf King because  it uses bison, which is novel source of meat to anyone, except the family of Ted Nugent.
     
  • The live version of "Great White Buffalo" is one of his better efforts!
  • Ben has been allergic to bison from day one, and venison also.  Just to point out that sometimes severe allergies need no more than one exposure to be triggered.  I am the same way with eucalytus, and many people have this severe a problem with nuts and/or shellfish.
  • I'm allergic to work. I end up sweating and tired.
