I recently adopted two kittens, and everyone I've spoken with told me to buy only food that is grain free. I saw the 365 brand today at my local Whole Foods and did not see any grains listed in the ingredients. But I see in the responses here that there is rice and other grains. What is the case about grains in this food? The price is wonderful, if there is no grain.

In response to Seven Burke: Wrong, Seven. Some of us are enlightened enough to realize that by-products are not manufactured or artificial or wrong for animals to eat. They are in fact likely the best, most naturally desired part of the animal to be eaten "in the wild." When carnivorous animals begin to eat the first mouthfuls of chewy yummy flesh are usually... by products, like the intestines, or the organs of the abdomen. The enlightened of the mamel world (bears coem to mind) even reserve this portion for their cubs. So despite your wrong-headed position, this WFM customer is greatly pleased over the ingredient list of the 365 brand food he has bought his cats for years. The cats are healthy, mentally intact, despite my abusing them with actual carnivorous diets. Kudos to WFM for putting up with such ridiculous demands for pet food and providing us with an affordable very healthy product. Some of the damnds make me laugh out loud: it should mimic wild animal food (Uh our animals are domesticated, people... not wild), it should be vegan (LOL!), vegitarian, contain ONLY meat, contain only meat *I* would consider eating- not by products, blah blah blah...

I have purchased the 365 brand dry dog food for the last 2 years. Recently, my vet informed me that my pomeranian had a kidney stone that passed to her bladder (1 cm diameter!). He informed me that it was the dog food that caused these. He said I need to go to purina or science diet because these brands are frequently checked. Here I thought that I was buying a product that was a healthy option for my dog, when it almost killed her. The surgery cost $1200. That is some expensive food. DO NOT BUY this product!!!!

Hi, I would like to order some 365 puppy dry food. My local Whole Foods doesn't carry it and they don't seem to know if they can order it or not. Thank you, Debbie Zeman PS, my adult dog loves his 365 dog food and so does the puppy but it isn't the right food for her.

Can you tell me how many calories are in a cup of each flavor of the 365 Everyday Value canned dog foods? Also, can you tell me why this information isn't more easily accessed (either on the label or on your website)? Thanks for your time.

Why is it so hard to find dog food products on your website? I purchase dog food on a regular basis with my trips to your closes store (17 miles) and decided to try looking for brands on line, but that's impossible. Now I'm going to try to go more local.

Hello, I recently made my first trip to Whole Foods in Sarasota Florida. Wow what a great store. I am from Newark Ohio and the closet to me is in Columbus so not to far. But my question is my boxer is currently on Science Diet Perscription Z-D Dog Food and which is very expensive. Which is basically a glutten free food and no bi products and its easy for digestion. Do any of the whole foods brands consist of the same thing? Because I would love to switch to your brand. Please let me know. Thanks Trevor

You do not want to feed your pet anything that has by-products listed as one of the top five. What they are saying is that after the animal was approved for human consumption, and then stripped of meat for butcher counters, the ALL the rest was put in a grinder and out comes the by-product. It's gross. If you want REAL human grade dog food then check out 'Orijen'... Just don't feed it to a designer dog, they wont be able to handle it. I am no rep of them, I just did tons of research and this stuff came out on top, but its expensive. Bounce the ratings off www.dogfoodanalysis.com as they give it straight.

Since our product selection varies from store to store, our product section online is meant more as a food guide than a comprehensive list of items we carry. Also, we currently do not offer any online ordering of products. Please check in with your local store/s for any questions or requests about specific products. Thanks! http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/all/index.php

Is the holistic brand a special subset of the regular 365 Everyday Value pet food or are they the same thing?

Why don't you have food for CATS? Natural Balance brand both dry and canned is what I am looking for.

We do carry cat food, but selection varies between our stores. If you're looking for a particular product, your best bet is to check in with your local store to see if they can start carrying it or special order it for you from one of our distributors. Thanks!

I have 2 one year old female litter mate cats. One has recently is not only overweight but has been diagnosed with unirary tract infection. The vet told me to change to a food with a PH of 5-5.5. I also looked up this condition on line and found that canned food was the best for this condition. I cannot find any PH level listed on any feline food. Please help.
