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.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Purina is claiming independent lab tests confirmed that blue buffalo products contain both chicken by-products and corn.

Wow. That is interesting. It makes you wonder how many other brands advertise the same thing but the ingredients tell another store. :/

That's exactly what I was thinking. And yeah, it'll be interesting to watch this one play out.

Yeah, I am too interested in seeing what comes from this.

It's hard to trust what anyone say's these days.  Mad

I wonder how unbiased the labs are though and how they would test for chicken by-products vs. chicken.

I don't like Purina. The only motivator they have to doing this would be to weaken the competition, and there are so many ways that they could skewer the results. I mean really since when did Purina of all companies ever actually care about what they put in their own dog food?

Now I'm not a huge fan of Blue Buffalo either, but many people swear by it and dogs seem to do quite decently on the food. So if there is any corn/chicken by-products in there (which there very well could be) then I would think that it would have to be in an almost negligible amount. Especially since so many people claim that it's a high quality brand. I mean it has 4-5 stars on DogFoodAdvisor, which is more than you can say for Purina.
