    Hi – First time on the Forum, my name is Tom, and I’m in South Florida.

    I wonder if anyone has more information on BJ’s Berkley and Jensen Grain Free Duck and Vegetable dry food. I see that it’s lumped in with BJ’s other foods on the ratings pages, but there is a note that this particular variety is a 5 star food, while the chicken and rice that was tested came in at 4 stars. I can’t seem to find out how or why the duck and vegetable formula got 5 stars. As a grain-free product, this food seems like a great value, and I would consider buying it if i could get some more details.

    sorry if this has been asked before, but I don’t see a search option on this forum…

    Any ideas or info?

    Thanks, Tom

    I’m also interested in any information as we have been feeding the same based on the nutritional content and our dogs seem to be doing well on this food.

    Hi Tom and Nickie- This is only a guess based on what I know about how Dr. Mike and all the editors rate dog food, but I’m going to say it’s because the grain-free Duck has a high content of meat based protein. The first 3 main ingredients when I looked at the BJ’s website were: Deboned Duck, Turkey Meal, Chicken Meal. The first 2 ingredients in the Chicken and Rice were whole meats or meat meals followed by a grain (Rice). Dr. Mike states in the reviews that because of a canines carnivorus bias they favor foods with a higher meat content. I would 100% agree with that. Judging by the look of the ingredients by themselves I would have to choose the GF Duck over the Chicken, also because my boy has messy poo’s with grain inclusive foods.

    Hope this helped some!
