    The commenters are missing the point, which is that there’s no need to pay premium dollar for dog food. All dog food is produced to meet USDA guidelines. If you pay top dollar for one of the more expensive foods, all you’re doing is paying top dollar.

      Can you read an ingredient list? My dog food is mostly meat. Dogs look better, smell better, poop less on higher quality meat based dog foods. I got my boyfriend to stop feeding Iams to his dog. You know what happened? Dog stopped puking. His dog was puking almost daily and now it never happens. My dog died, but ate grain free food. He was stunning.

    Save yourself all the time, work, and money and just buy Blue Buffalo Wilderness, they do all that plus add probiotics and vitamins to there food its some of the best. Royal Canin is not really that good and IAMS is terrible, some of the worst, the fact that you do all that work is the only reason why your animals are very healthy but you dont need to do all of that if you buy the right food.

    i think royal canin is the very best food for dogs and also espensive


    we feed our dogs Iams and always have..We purchase hamburg in bulk packages and then divide it into small packages about 1/4 lb each. During the summer we take left over vegies from our garden, squash, carrots, beets, beans and sometimes a small amount of corn..we put them in the food processer and turn them into mush then freeze that mush into small zip lock bags. We then cook the hamburger when we need it and drain off all the fat. We then add the vegie puree (thawed in the fridge overnight) to the hamburger with a little warm water. we sometimes add rice or barley or oatmeal to it. You can also cook chicken and do that same thing..We add a small handfull of the Iams food to this “CHOW” mixture and all is well..My Yorkie lives to be 17 years old and never had any health problems or worms even once..I have two poms and 3 cats who eat the same thing………Store food has too much biproduct, preservatives and sodium for good health to our pets..Ours do fine wthout the expensive unhealthy foods..Im not saying its cheap to feed them this way but if you have a garden it sure supliments alot..and if you want to take the time its well worth it..We have healthy, full and happy pets..We have had absolutely no vet bills for sick animals in over 20 years feeding them this way.

    My dog loved his bully sticks! He loved playing with them, they helped make his teeth healthy, and they were nutritious. Plus there are so many different kinds!

Credit.com receives compensation for the financial products and services advertised on this site if our users apply for and sign up for any of them.

Hello, Reader!

Thanks for checking out Credit.com. We hope you find the site and the journalism we produce useful. We wanted to take some time to tell you a bit about ourselves.

Our People

The Credit.com editorial team is staffed by a team of editors and reporters, each with many years of financial reporting experience. We’ve worked for places like the New York Times, American Banker, Frontline, TheStreet.com, Business Insider, ABC News, NBC News, CNBC and many others. We also employ a few freelancers and more than 50 contributors (these are typically subject matter experts from the worlds of finance, academia, politics, business and elsewhere).

Our Reporting

We take great pains to ensure that the articles, video and graphics you see on Credit.com are thoroughly reported and fact-checked. Each story is read by two separate editors, and we adhere to the highest editorial standards. We’re not perfect, however, and if you see something that you think is wrong, please email us at editorial team [at] credit [dot] com,

The Credit.com editorial team is committed to providing our readers and viewers with sound, well-reported and understandable information designed to inform and empower. We won’t tell you what to do. We will, however, do our best to explain the consequences of various actions, thereby arming you with the information you need to make decisions that are in your best interests. We also write about things relating to money and finance we think are interesting and want to share.

In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.

Our Business Model

Credit.com’s journalism is largely supported by an e-commerce business model. Rather than rely on revenue from display ad impressions, Credit.com maintains a financial marketplace separate from its editorial pages. When someone navigates to those pages, and applies for a credit card, for example, Credit.com will get paid what is essentially a finder’s fee if that person ends up getting the card. That doesn’t mean, however, that our editorial decisions are informed by the products available in our marketplace. The editorial team chooses what to write about and how to write about it independently of the decisions and priorities of the business side of the company. In fact, we maintain a strict and important firewall between the editorial and business departments. Our mission as journalists is to serve the reader, not the advertiser. In that sense, we are no different from any other news organization that is supported by ad revenue.

Visitors to Credit.com are also able to register for a free Credit.com account, which gives them access to a tool called The Credit Report Card. This tool provides users with two free credit scores and a breakdown of the information in their Experian credit report, updated twice monthly. Again, this tool is entirely free, and we mention that frequently in our articles, because we think that it’s a good thing for users to have access to data like this. Separate from its educational value, there is also a business angle to the Credit Report Card. Registered users can be matched with products and services for which they are most likely to qualify. In other words, if you register and you find that your credit is less than stellar, Credit.com won’t recommend a high-end platinum credit card that requires an excellent credit score You’d likely get rejected, and that’s no good for you or Credit.com. You’d be no closer to getting a product you need, there’d be a wasted inquiry on your credit report, and Credit.com wouldn’t get paid. These are essentially what are commonly referred to as "targeted ads" in the world of the Internet. Despite all of this, however, even if you never apply for any product, the Credit Report Card will remain free, and none of this will impact how the editorial team reports on credit and credit scores.

Your Stories

Lastly, much of what we do is informed by our own experiences as well as the experiences of our readers. We want to tell your stories if you’re interested in sharing them. Please email us at story ideas [at] credit [dot] com with ideas or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
