Simple question - do you, SB. consider Bakers to be a good dog food with no risks to health or behaviour?
Do you consider it better to use a food where the makers provide detailed information about ingredients, as opposed to the vague wishy-washy information provided about Bakers?
Is your reference to my "uninformed opinion unsubstantiated by any scientific evidence." referring to my post you quote immediately above this, or to my longer post, earlier, saying why I would not feed Bakers? If to my earlier post, then this is hardly 'uninformed opinion' but rather a conscious decision based on the clear reasons stated!
As far as your criticism of views expressed regarding Bakers by veterinary nurses and/or vets, then perhaps their views derive from experience, even without qualifications in canine nutrition. I have no qualifications in canine nutrition but I defend absolutely my right to make decisions about dog food based on information provided by the makers: I assume you would not disagree with this (but who can say??)
Simple answer - a) I do not consider Bakers as any better than many dog foods or any worse than many.
Nothing in life is risk free.
Chappie is a similar product with non specified ingredients and is often used by those people whose dogs are ill. It is only "better" to use specified ingredients per se if you have a dog that is intolerant or allergic to a specific ingredient. It is uninformed opinion because it is based on non scientific evidence. You can make whatever decisions you like about how you feed your dogs, and it matters not to me what people feed their dogs. What I am against is rumour, gossip and self styled experts who try to educate others on the basis of rumour and gossip. As I have said many times before, you can ass-u-me anything you like, it is a free world.
