AFTER MY RECENT NIGHTMARE WITH BLUE BUFFALO MY DOG WAS SCARED TO TRY ANYTHING. AFTER 2 DIFFERENT ONES THE THIRD WAS THE CHARM. HE LOVES THE HALO SPOTS STEW AND LOOKS FORWARD TO EATING IT. BLUE BUFFALO SHOULD BE SHUT DOWN!! THEY NOW OUTSOURCE AND GOD KNOWS WHAT IS IN THE FOOD. CHECK CONSUMER AFFAIRS AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN. A LOT OF SICK ANIMALS AND SO FAR NO RECALL ON IT!! UN-BELIEVABLE.
Hi, i don’t see annamaet reviewed yet.I
I THOUGHT EVO WENT TO 1 STAR RATING WHEN IT WAS BOUGHT OUT BY GE(?). THEY CHANGED THE FORMULA FROM WHAT I READ.
Any reviews of Pioneer Naturals Grain & Potato Free? On paper it looks great.
I use the dry Acana Ranchlands (which my Daisy loves), but, after some research, also started feeding her the canned ‘Party Animal-Organic’. She’s not crazy about it, it looks like dog food, so I doctor it up with organic veggies…..LOL….she wants dog food that looks like people food. I had read that it was ‘Human-Grade’, so am hoping that’s true. I will probably go back to Weruva Steak-Frites, which she loves…made in a human food facility. I don’t see that one here, either. I also make home-made & freeze up food for her, all organic meat & veggies, when I have time. I always worry, though…we can read how great a food is & then BOOM-it’s recalled because of one reason or another! 🙁
I only use HONEST KITCHEN now. In the past I used Castor&pollux and Merrick. Then I found out they were bought out by Purina. I threw out what I had and bought HONEST KITCHEN. I do not trust Purina in any way, shape or form. It is my opinion they will tamper with castor&pollux and merrick and have the ingredients that they have in Purina, which is NOT good enough for my dog. I don’t think Purina cares about quality, only about making money the cheapest way they can.
The Honest Kitchen – Have you tried Dr. Harveys?
Alas, Evo is no longer produced. So I spent hours on the Net researching for the purest food I could find. I found that Solid Gold Leaping Waters salmon… and Merrick grain free Salmon… seemed to fit the bill. I am transitioning my two now and find that their poops are more solid with these foods. Plus one of them looks forward to breakfast now.
I feed my little dog solid gold…big boss..please tell me if it is a good dog good…thank you…
I don’t see Southern state nature dry dog food rate or review. Thanks
How about Paul Neman’s Own Organic canned dog food, turkey or beef? Other websites have rated it in the top 10 for canned. I feed this with Honest Kitchen dehydrated to mix it up at the same feeding every time. What do you think? Please advise, thank you!!
I just put my Boxer puppies on Famm. I heard it was very good food. What do you think?
Can you review for Vita Plus Lamb Recipe dog food?
What about simply nourish?
Local pet store suggested Grandma Maes dog food. Haven’t seen anything on it. My dog has been on it for over 3 months his breath smells better & he loves it. Anyone else ies or heard of this brand it’s made in USA with USA meats.
I used 4Health Optimal Nutrition, it sounds great no grains, soy, corn or wheat. It caused my dog to have serious digestive problems. After several stool test, medications, and trips to the Vet, it turns out it was the food I was feeding him. My Vet said don’t believe the hype about grains in the dog food. Dog’s need a balanced diet and that includes grains for digestion.
Purina weight management. Is it any good?
Nature’s Variety recently changed the recipe of their Instinct products. Is your review for the new recipe or the old one?
Hi-I would like to see a review on Life’s Abundance. This food has been recommended to us to help with itchy skin. I would like to see what you think.
Why is it you would give such good ratings to so many of these and not mention that one ingredient no matter what amount these brands use can cause illness and even death in extreme cases. It’s called COPPER SULFATE, a registered poison in this country since about 1955 so why include it, to extend the shelf life or the companies bottom line. If you truly check these out and what everyone to value your opinion you might make note of it.
How different or similar is copper sulfate to copper proteinate. Is copper proteinate safe?
Do you ever review Store brand Dog Food. I use Walmart’s brand called Pure Balance. I use the Grain Free Formula. Small Breed Chicken and Garden Vegetables Recipes. First ingredient is Chicken. Is there a way I can look up and see if it is rated???? I appreciate any information you can tell me
Trying to find a good dog food is not easy I’m thinking about giving my dog raw meat and vegetables instead of dry dog food do you think that’s a good idea please tell me.
I like to know about perfomatrin made in Canada the wet and dry dog food thank you
I have so many issues with my fur baby, allergies, yeast…so she needs a limited ingredient diet. I was using Instinct LID, but she reacted to the peas or the tapioca in it. She is also allergic to chicken. I have had better results with Canine Caviar , the lamb formula. Can you please research their brand!?!
I am very confused how Diamond dog food made 4 stars after several recalls. You speak as though they have quality product yet you mentioned the several recalls. If you remember correctly in these recalls there were several families that lost their their loved ones. I had a beautiful boxer who I fed Origen for years until the local store closed and was unable to purchase so I switch to Taste of the Wild and Kirkland. After a very short time my boxer had developed bladder stones. According to my vet his stones test results they developed from the food he was eating. At the time I had no clue they were related to The Diamond dog food. It upsets me to see that you have rated them so highly even knowing about the recalls. One recall I might can forgive but The Diamond co does not care how many of our loved ones they kill
I am in Australia. Do you have a review on Ivory Coat?
When you are naming these brands of dog food are you talking about the wet and dry or only dry?
Does anyone have any thoughts on Carnilove and Alpha Spirit?
My country doesn’t offer a big variety of dog foods, and Orijen is just way over what I can afford.
I’m not sure why Muenster is 4 star. It should be 5. Can you check into that.
what is a good dog food for my French bulldog? we have a problem with him leaving poo marks on carpet and furniture after he goes to the bathroom. He is a sweet dog but this poo problem is terrible and I will have to give him up if there is no solution (I am not willing to wipe his bottom daily) He is a year old and weighs 22 lbs. He is healthy and playful.
Hi, I appreciate all you are doing to inform dog parents about what dog foods are good and what isn’t. I wonder if you’re able to, could you review Dr Marty’s dry raw dog food? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
We are using Basics brand Limited Edition dry dog food, he is a bit over weight, we used to use Hills Science diet on our now deceased dog , our dog is a Bischon Friese 2 1/2 years old , any suggestions ?
