Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

http://www.wysongepigen.net/buyepigen.php

so i was looking up some dog food and this was the first link that popped up under my grain free dog food search and it claimed grain free is a hoax and starch free is the way to go. im really not sure what to think about it. it has over 60% protein in it, seems over kill! but does not list the cal per cup. the price is in line with TOTW. just thought i would throw this out there and see what you all thought if you look over the site.

I haven't read up on any of this yet, but starch-free sounds to me like they're assuming dogs to be primarily carnivores which from my understanding and research is just not true. A diet without starch means no potatoes on top of no grains and that just seems wrong to me. If you look at the ingredient list, it's a bunch of vegetable protein, but not the vegetable. So how do they propose that works? Dogs can't magically ingest the protein without ingesting the vegetable in the wild, so it seems to me like they're taking liberties that just don't make sense and are playing on the popular trends and hype.

I'd need to do more research, but at first glance, I wouldn't feed it.
