Nature's Logic anyone?

Has anyone used Nature's Logic?

http://www.natureslogic.com/products/dp.html

I am thinking of trying the raw for the boys as it doesn't contain bone so I am thinking there may not be danger to cooking it as I have been doing the NV medallions-- May lose some nutrition, that may be the only downside. But curious if anyone knows or has any experience with this product.

I noticed that the chicken ingredients contain lots of powders rather than the actual food. Not sure how good or bad that is but kinda makes me a bit concerned. I would prefer to actually have the fruits and vegetables mixed in rather than just a powder.

Some of the dry kibble gets a 4 star rating on dog food analysis.

INGREDIENTS: Chicken, Chicken Liver, Chicken Heart, Pumkin Seed, Montmorillonite Clay, Cottage Cheese, Egg Shell Meal, Whole Eggs, Cod Liver Oil, Parsley, Blueberry Powder, Suncured Alfalfa Meal, Cranberry Powder, Almond Powder, Tomato Powder , Apricot Powder, Artichoke Powder, Avocado Powder, Spinach Powder, Apple Powder, Broccoli Powder, Carrot Powder, Pumkin Powder, Kelp, Chicory Root, Rosemary

Yes I saw that too. and they can't even spell "pumkin" But once the fruits and veggies are pulverized and frozen is there that much difference between powdered and whole?

Hi, dogfoodanalysis.com gives the dry food a 4 star and 5 star rating depending on the variety. I didn't see the raw reviewed.

I have no idea if there's a difference. I guess it's sort of like having those powdered greens which I take once in awhile when I don't eat enough veggies. I'm just suprised to see some many powdered veggies. I've never seen that in a raw product.

Hi Missy,

Never heard of that brand as they do not sell it up here in Canada. (as far as i know anyhow)

I would contact these raw companies and ask them about cooking the food? I'm pretty sure it is not reccomended to be cooked.. without even taking the 'bones' issue into consideration..

They do add all sorts of stuff to the raw meat mix and perhaps alot of that good stuff is being 'cooked away'??

raw for humans vs. raw for dogs?

One gal I know that feeds her Havs raw feeds them regular human-grade meat (chicken parts, etc.) vs. raw food made specifically for dogs. She buys what is on sale and my impression is that it might be less costly than a raw-for-dog product. Does anyone have a feel for how the standards might differ? I can see how much more convenient the raw-for-dogs would be since they add vitamins/minerals, etc. but I wonder about food safety issues.

Ryan, did you consider feeding human-grade raw food when you switched Beamer?

Hi Jane,
Yes, I did think about just buying all the raw meats from the butcher instead of the high priced raw commercial dog food. But then I'd have to add all the supplements to the food.. That would be extra $$$, plus the convienence factor would go down the tube. I mean if your a breeder or have lots of dogs I'm sure buying fromt he butcher and preparing it yourself makes sence, as it would be much cheaper. But for little 'ol Beamer its perfect!

Don't forget the raw patties also contain organs which are a very important part. You would have to buy those separately which would obviously add to the cost.
