The only Thing That Alpo Is Missing, Is The Kitchen Sink.

When you have animals in your household then if you are like me I like to make sure that they are eating healthy and have a variety of different types of food available to them. Each week I usually try a different brand of food so that my pets do not get bored with what I am feeding them. I have tried IAMS, Pedigree, Dog Chow and just about any kind that they have on the shelf at the grocery store. I also usually purchase the largest size bag of food that I can find, and that is usually a forty pound bag. This particular time I purchased a forty pound bag of Purina Alpo "Come'n Get It". I found this at Meijer's for only twenty dollars. The only problem is that the more you feed your pets the more that comes out, in this case forty pounds in means forty pounds out. Unless you have dogs like ours, that like to go grazing and start eating the dog treats (dog feces')that they find in the yard, you will have to clean it up yourself.

Ingredients
What you will find in this dog food is: ground yellow corn, corn germ meal, meat and bone meal, soybean meal, beef tallow preserved with mixed-tocopherols this is a form of vitamin E. There is also corn gluten meal, animal digest, which is a source of chicken flavor. Also included with this is salt, liver meal, dried cheese powder, L-lysine monohydrochloride, potassium chloride, zinc sulfate, ferrous sulfate, added colors (red 40, yellow 6, yellow 5, and blue 2), with vitamin A supplement, calcium carbonate, copper sulfate, calcium pantothenate, garlic oil, pyridoxine supplement, riboflavin supplement, calcium iodate, menadione sodium bisulfite complex a source of vitamin K activity, folic acid, biotin, sodium selenite.

The guaranteed analysis of this dog food is; 21% crude protein, 9% of crude fat, 5.5% of crude fiber, 12% moisture,1% linoleic acid, 1% calcium, 0.8% of phosphorus, and 80mg. of iron. The serving sizes will vary with the size of your dog and these include; 3 to 12 pound dogs should be given 1/2 to 1 ¼ cups of food. 13 to 20 pound dogs should be given 1 ¼ to 1 ¾ cups of food. 21 to 35 pound dogs should be given 1 ¾ to 2 2/3 cups of food. 36 to 50 pound dogs should receive 2 2/3 to 3 ½ cups of food. 51 to 75 pound dogs should be given 3 ½ to 4 ¾ cups of food. 76 to 100 pound dogs should be given 4 ¾ to 5 ¾ cups of food. Any dog 100 pounds and over should be given 5 ¾ cups plus 2/5 cup for every ten pounds over that. This is just a daily guide that can be adjusted for each dog.

Description and Experience
This dog food has four different kinds shapes and flavors mixed inside of it. The first one is in the shape of a red dog bone and a beef flavoring to it. The second one is yellow and comes in the shape of a chicken and has a chicken flavor to it. The third one is kind of a dark orange color and has a cheese flavor to it. The forth and last one is in the shape of a fruit loop and has a liver flavor to it. We have given this to our dogs either dry or as a treat we have mixed a bowl of this with some water to make a gravy like flavor.

When my dogs see me bring this bag through the front door, the tail wagging starts and does not stop until I fill their bowl up with this food. It seems like they can never get enough of this kind of food. This dog food is at all of your local grocery markets and about the least as expensive as I can find. They really like taking this out of their bowl and eating it. For some unbeknownst reason our largest dog loves to knock the food out of the bowl and eat it off of the floor. The smallest dog seems to think that it has to steal a mouthful and run into the other room and eat it. The last and the boss of the bunch just plain lifts her jowls at the other two and says to that the whole bowl is hers.

Conclusion
If you want your pets to stay healthy then give them the best that you can afford. This dog food has a money back guarantee, that if you do not like it then you go to www.alpo.com and get the number and they will refund your money. But I have one question, and that will you know if your dog does not like it?
