Cathryn, thanks for mentioning ProPlan. I mentioned one time on this site that I fed ProPlan and I got negative replies. I became concerned and started looking for another brand. I value the information I read on this site.
Then I started to think Breeze has been on ProPlan lite for about 9 years, right after puppyhood, which she ate ProPlan Puppy (chicken and rice). I also feed it to Scout and they thrive on it. Their coates are shiny, eyes bright and full of energy (well at least Scout is LOL). Even the Golden Retriever I owned before Breeze ate it. So I don't think it's a bad dog food. I would rather feed all natural or organic, but where I live there aren't any store within 20 miles that sell that type of food. I feel better about it now...thanks again.
One more thing the breeder that I purchased Breeze from gave lots of literature about not only Newfoundlands but other puppy and dog type information...how to groom, what types of treats and toys to give, food....etc. She did say, in bold type, feed Science Diet at your own risk. I'm not sure why, but I wouldn't...
Sharon, proud Mom of Scout (tri) and Breeze (Newfie)
