I feed my dogs Abady dry and canned and as far as Im concerned it is the best dog food out there!I buy it from a store owned by a dog nutritionist who has researched all the brands she carries. She only buy and sell 5 star foods. It has never been recalled and has been around for 30 plus years. Do the research it is NOT a bad food !! My 5 dogs have always done GREAT on it!

Great website and very informative!!! Keep up the great work.
I must admitt that I was naive and uneducated about what is in my pets food. I started research after my 11 year old dog was diagnosed with liver cancer in late 2011. I switched to home made food (Birkdale Petmix from the K-9 Critical Care website) and was able to extend her life another 8 month (the vet gave her only 2 to 4 weeks after she was diagnosed). Sadly the cancer was too far advanced and also spread and we lost our baby on July 13, 2012.
I wish I would have found your website sooner, but now that I have found it I stop by frequently. And my 3 remaining pets (1 dog and 2 cats) are now on holistic food, however, we are still trying to find their favorites as all 3 are very selective (and why shouldn't they be, we humans also have our favorite foods).
Thank you again for a great job and I have told everyone who has a pet or considers getting one about your wonderful site.

The information on this site is so helpful. I have been looking for some way to compare and choose a good dog food for Jamiyah. Thanks
|Scott Winkelhausen, Denton, August 23, 2011|
This is a Great site, Thank you so very much for ALL the hard work you have done. The results that I have found are, well, expected and some are a jaw dropping surprise. I am glad I found this site. The only thing that I would ask from you is to tell me how Nutri-Source Pet food ranks on your top foods. I have tried the search but the name is not here. Can you please test this dog food and let me know how it ranks, I am presently feeding my dog this food. Thank you again for this amazing site.

Found your issue on Pet Food Containers and Oxidation, one of the most informative available online. Keep up the great work!
|Amanda F., Buford, GA, USA, August 8, 2011|
I recently began working at a GREAT natural pet food store and honeslty I feel so evil knowing what I now know about the food I was feeding my animals. I really love explaining to customers how bad grocery store pet foods and how harmfull those mainstream names really are.
|Donna Kanipe, Newton, NC, USA, July 25, 2011|
Thank you for taking the time to educate us and keep us advised on recalls!

You guys should do a review on Satori dog food. I haven't been able to find much on it. Overall love the site : )
|Paulette Hebert, Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada, June 17, 2001
Great information... We've been struggling for 3 years now to find the best possible food for our Westie. Recently have taken him off the Vet formula to see if he'd take well to Taste of the Wild... he loves his new food and no signs of him not taking well to it... we don't believe in feeding our baby grains so this seemed great... just nice to see that I've made a great choice... thanks for the wonderful information!
Bode, Ontario, Canada, June 16, 2011
I am an animal communicator, I speak with dogs and other animals every day. When I speak with them, I ask them how they like their food, some say salty, so they drink a lot of water, some say they have to eat their food, or there is nothing else to eat.
I relay this information, which sometimes is swept aside,with comments such as: "Well he has eaten it for the past 4/5/6 years and never turned up his nose"! So I ask the animals' owners to read the ingredients on the bag of food, invariably the first ingredient usually is corn, then a byproduct and on it goes, a dog owner went as far as to tell me her husband was a vet and proceeded to read me the ingredients from the bag, stopping herself midway through, realising what she was feeding her dog.
Thank you for taking the time to bring this to the attention of all dog owners.
On behalf of myself and the animals, Thank You!

So happy to have run across your website. I had put one up myself in 2005 with the Whole Dog Journal's list of recommended food but was just asked by them to take it down. I did some searching on the net for another quality website that I could share with others. I have found it here. Your ratings of the various foods coincides with my own beliefs.
|Kate R., Franklinton,
LA, USA, May 16, 2011
Thanks so much for compiling so much great info in one convenient place! The food we'd switched to after Eagle Pack recently changed formulas and all our dogs have become sick. That brought my husband & I to your site. Thank you again! Dogs are going back on Eagle Pack & we're having delivery from one of your recommended sites as well.

Love this site. There is so much useful information here. I didn't realize how bad the food we were feeding our dogs really was. Thank you so much for opening my eyes. I am very grateful for the way you have explained the way food labels actually work. Thanks for all the help, keep up the good work.

Thank you for the top 10 dog food articles. I have bad skin allergies and my owners just tried Natural Balance - your article gave them peace of mind that the people in the pet store were correct about this brand!

Thank you for the update on Evanger's dog food. I recently purchased Evanger's canned dog food and could not find any new information about their status.
Church, VA, USA, February 19, 2011
I can't believe I waited until my dog got sick to research the food she is eating. She has liver disease (cause still unknown, waiting for biopsy results) and I'm mortified to see that the food I've been feeding her (Hill's Science Diet) ranks poorly (zero scoops). I hope her food wasn't making her sick...I'll probably never know. What I do know is that I'll be switching her and my other dog to one of your "5-scoop" brands asap. Nothing is too good for my babies!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing all this useful information together. I'm looking to switch my puppy to adult food and was going to go with a brand that scored quite low. Now more informed I can make a much better choice for Scout's wellness for not much more money a pound. Thanks again!
|Lynette Kam, OR, USA, January 14,
Your website is great! Very informative and just what I was looking for. Switching from Innova since I heard about the buy out by P&G and was looking for suggestions for great dog food. Learned even more!
Boone, USA, December 31, 2010
Very informative. I have had our last 3 dogs on Solid Gold dry dog food and it is the best. Keep up the good work, and boycott p and g!

I think you guys are doing a great job. I like to know the good and bad things about dog food and recalls to protect my dogs and to pass the word to make sure that everyones dog is safe. Because I am a animal lover and I wish you guys the best of luck with your website and with everybodys dogs. Merry Christmas.

Great website, and your 5 scoops rating is pretty consistent with the FDA confidential report on the 8 never recalled dog food brands... Looking forward to your own top ten of best dog brands!

Great website! Definitely added to my favorites! I'm in the process of choosing new dog foods, especially after finding out what animal digest is. Yuck. Can never learn to much about what goes in, it really does make a difference. Thanks again! Deanna

Thank you for a terrific site with unbiased comparisons of many brands all in one spot. You've done all the work that I've often wondered about & my experiments with the dogs food brands I've tried, affirms your findings.
One finicky dog I'm dogsitting came to me eating only deli meat her owner would feed her since she refused "all dog foods." After two weeks, she is completely on Natural Balance canned mixed with Solid Gold dry food and enjoying it. My bitch in whelp has beautiful coat and a big belly, she's in such good condition on Solid Gold.
Once I stumbled onto your site, I immediately emailed it to all my doggie contacts & will give the link to all new contacts.
Thank you, thank you thank you!

I was wagged to sniff out your site. I showed it to my human pack mate and she felt sad that she didn't know this sooner and is excited about changing my food. I write a blog and included your site in one of my latest posts.
|Chrissy, Saint Marys, USA,

I only wanted to write to you and thank you so much for your website.
It is extremely hard to keep up with the unscrupulous ways some dog food manufacturers try to trick the consumer. I for one appreciate you doing the research and passing on the information you learn in the process.
I placed my most recent online dog food purchase after reading all of the information you gave on what foods were safe to feed. I love my dogs and want them to be as healthy and happy as possible.
Thanks again and keep up the excellent work. ;-)

|Kathy Devine-Bergeron, Palm

I was so pleased to have found your website with so much valuable information. My children and I recently adopted a dog from the SPCA, and wanted him to be a part of our family for many years to come. I thought that the food we have been giving him was healthy, but will now change brands immediately after becoming more imformed about the ingredients to look for.
Our beloved German Shorthair Pointer died at 11 years old from the Melamine food poisoning. He went from being a healthy, happy pet to dying in a very sad manner. I would not wish on any pet owner.
Thank goodness for people like you who do such valuable work to preserve the health of our canine companions. I will continue to check back for the latest updates and will be forever grateful for the knowledge I now have in raising a healthy dog.
|Luann, Freeport, NY, USA, August
Thrilled to find a site to help me make better choices for my "friends" and the article about keeping dry dog food from spoiling was an eye opener.
One problem though, I have never found an air tight container that I can put a 35 lb bag of food in, without eliminating the bag.
|Sue, Roslyn, NY, USA, August 6,
Wow! I have a Goldendoodle too! Greatest dog ever! Love your website. Very informative. Thanks!

Had no idea how much rubbish was in dog food before this site. Shocking, most of the brands advertised are pure rubbish, thank you for enlightening us. Have changed foods and can see the difference in energy levels.
|Cleve, Birmingham, AL, USA, May
I love this site! I have spent two very informative and interesting hours on here learning about what I have been feeding our baby.
I was shocked to read the brand that was SO recommended by our breeder was zero scoops out of five. I checked the ingrediants on the label to the what to look for suggestions and found a lot of bad stuff in the bag. I have found two five scoop brands that I will be buying tomorrow and seeing if "Barkley" likes it.
I have been looking for a site like this after getting so much misinformation by word of mounth. I will be talking this up at work tomorrow.
| Gail, Toronto, ON, Canada, May 29, 2010
This is a great site. I've been watching it evolve and it is incredible how it has developed into such an informative and interacative site. I look forward continue visiting your site; love the new dog park concept. Keep up the good work.

I showed your site to Gary (my life-partner) who perused it at great length. He then went out and bought some of the recommended dog food with no "animal byproducts." He is
determined to feed Phoebe the healthiest diet we can afford.
I'm so glad you used Phoebe's photos. (How did you find them?) I'd never have met you otherwise nor would we have known so much more about feeding the appropriate foods to
our dear dog, if I hadn't. She's a very special part of our little family.
Phoebe will be hugged on your account!
Cheryl, Gary, and Phoebe (and sweet Violet, the cat ;o)
