Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


What adult dog food brand is best?

Buddha is 8 months old and 30-35lbs. He's been eating Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels since we adopted him at 7 weeks old. It's what the shelter had him on, and I kept him on it to avoid any unnecessary stress. I wanna start researching and gradually switching him to adult food because he is losing interest in his puppy food. I want a brand with high protein and very little to no wheat/gluten. Any thoughts, tips, or advice?

    We have a Lhasa Apso and feed him Blue Buffalo and/or Orijen kibbles. Both are high in protein, but the Orijen contains more. I suggest surfin' the net and try some of the 5 star rated ones.

    Adult dog nutrient needs are different from puppies. Grown-up puppies require sufficient supplements to meet energy needs to maintain and repair body tissues. Following are the list of top dog food brands for the grown-up pooch that offers the best substance with most astounding nutritions.

    Best adult dog food brand. NONE! Feed it raw food and it will thrive. Took me a long time to find this out. Research what is in most dog foods dry or wet and you may be as shocked as I was.
