Beneful Healthy Radiance dog food Review

Beneful Healthy Radiance dog food is made and manufactured by Nestle Purina. Beneful Healthy Radiance is the most popular among dog owners who feed Beneful dog food. While some think Beneful Healthy Radiance is good for their dogs, the ingredients tell a different story.
[tab:First Five Ingredients:]

First five ingredients Analysis of Beneful dog food:

  1. Ground yellow corn
  2. chicken by-product meal
  3. corn gluten meal
  4. whole wheat flour
  5. animal fat

The first ingredient of Beneful Healthy Radiance dog food is Ground Yellow corn. Corn has been linked to many different problems within dogs including yeast infections to allergies. Corn is often difficult for dogs to digest and offers no nutritional value. We usually never recommend a dog food brand that contains corn.

The second ingredient Chicken By-Product meal is also one we try and stay away from. Its hard to determine the quality of this ingredient. Chicken By-Products are usually lower quality parts of the chicken that are rejected for human consumption.

Again Corn shows up as the third ingredient. It shows up in the form of a Gluten meal, which basically means after everything that may be nutritious has been removed from corn, they take whats left over and call it Gluten Meal.

Whole Wheat flour is the fourth ingredient. This ingredient is also one we don’t want to see in dog food. Whole Wheat flour is one ingredient that has been linked to numerous cases of dog allergies.

The fifth ingredient, Animal fat is an ingredient in which it is impossible to correctly identify the source. When you can’t identify the source usually this means that it is of lower quality.

With all these unwanted ingredients in the first five ingredients it would be hard to recommend this food to anyone. People are drawn to this food due to the cheaper price. One must think about the future. Ingredients in Beneful dog food have been linked to cases of allergies. Allergies = Vet Visits and Vet Visits = $$$. Your dogs food is an investment of your dogs health.

    Here we go again, JUST BECAUSE A DOG LIKES THE TASTE OF A DOG FOOD DOES NOT MAKE IT A GOOD FOOD!!.. KIDS LOVE THE TASTE OF CANDY, SO DO YOU FEEL KIDS SHOULD EAT JUST CANDY ?????? This food KILLED my dog… Who says? MY VET…And I did not tell him what I was feeding…If you don’t believe what this professional reviewer has to say, then check what this reviewer has to say about this crap.

    This food is disgusting!! It smells like Playdough when you open the bag and the smell of it coming out after eaten is absolutely horrible. I won’t even use up the rest of this bag – it is going in the trash!!

    I am another one who has a dog who has switched to Beneful Healthy Radiance with excellent results. We have struggled with our doberman for 2 1/2 yrs and never could find a food that would agree with him. He always had a sick stomach and he was loosing his hair and chewing himself raw. All the vet could tell us is its allergies and we struugled to make him comfortable. We swithed to Beneful andin 2 mths and we have had great results and its been 8 mths now and still going great. I know they say it is filled with bad stuff but who knows it sure works for our dog and we are not about to look else where. Thanks beneful..
