I was reading all the ingredients of the foods in Pet Stop last night. All of the big brands had corn, wheat, rice, brewer's rice, corn meal....as primary ingredients. It amazes me that people still buy those foods. Thanks for the barf info, I had no idea that they were selling it in Taiwan now.

One thing I was completely surprised by with the Costco food is it actually lists the percentage of the major ingredients on the package. In the US, nothing has percentages, and all the companies play games by splitting ingredients up ie: 10% meat, 9% corn, 9% other corn, 9% corny corn. I don't know if this is some kind of regulation that is specific to Taiwan because of stricter food laws or what.
The Costco kirkland Adult Chicken ingredients are roughly as such; Chicken 18.5%, Chicken meal 18.5%, Whole grain brown rice 18.5%, cracked pearl barley 16.5%, Chicken fat 6.5%, Egg product 6.5%, Beet pulp, 4%, potatoes 2.5%, fish meal 2%, flaxseed 2%. The other two kirkland foods lamb and senior didn't seem to have as high a ratio of meat to grain as the plain chicken formula. It's still about a third brown rice, which I'm not a huge fan of but I'm thinking maybe supplementing her diet with more meat/eggs. I am happy that it has no corn it it though. Unfortunately I'm vegetarian so I don't have any random meat around the house to give her.
