I feed the dogs Costco brand. I always fed them standard Purina Dog Chow before, and they all lived long & healthy lives, but we shop a lot at Costco so we buy there now. But I've eaten MREs a bunch of times, so my standards of eating aren't very high.
The differance is we aren't just feeding our whatever we find on the side of the road. We feed chicken or rabbit, mainly chicken. Get whole chicken leg quarters. Or whole chickens. Same thing humans eat.
Also, contrary to popular belief, the bones don't splinter unless they are cooked. No problems there. None of our dogs have ever had a problem crunching them up.
