Loyall life grain free all life stages salmon formula any input on it ?Susan RMember
I believe the company has had a recall. That can happen any time, but right now it probably keeps them off the preferred list.David LMember

What about Blue Grain Free Wilderness Large Breed Puppy food.Keith HMember
Please consider the “Zignature” Brand Dog Food (Dry) for your Editor’s Choice. Thanks.
Please recommend a 5 star single protein fish based canned dog food! No grains, brown rice would be ok.

Please let me know about Weruva Cirque de la Mer: Tuna and Veggies in Pumpkin soup. It looks like real food, seems ok on my doggies’ sensitive stomach. Also, Signature whitefish formula although higher fat content.
I feed my waterdog fish so would love to you look at more of these options.
Joelle: you said no grains, brown rice is ok. Rice is a grain.
Joelle V, check out Weruva Jammin Salmon and Marbella Paella. Also Tiki Dog has several fish and rice recipes. Wellness Core Ocean.
Thank you, yes rice is a grain although my dog tolerates it better than any other grain. I prefer no grains however.
I certainly will. Thank you. I like Weruva, and will try the others too.William WMember

Taste of The Wild (All Dry choices)
What about the Nutro Brand dog food?Charles ZMember
My Pointer does great on Canidae Pure Elements – glossy coat; firm hard, small stools; and he loves it. This is an outstanding kibble with quality,source disclosed ingredients.Mary AMember
Hello all, I am new here and I was wondering about,( Taste of the Wild Dog food? The ingredient seem to be really good. Any comments ?Linda HMember
I agree. My dog really likes it. I try to get two different brands and use half of one brand and then use a different brand. A the moment I have vita pure. The cost of Taste of the Wild is easier on the budget.carolyn sMember
I have used Natures Logic and thought it was excellent but it I s not grain free. It is on the list . Any comments on grain versus grain free.Stan FMember
I would like to know if “Fromm Heartland grain-free Large Breed Puppy” would carry the same recommendation as the “Fromm Classic Gold Large Breed Puppy” (4 stars).micah gMember
Purevita is this a great dry dog food? I have a Cavalier King Charles and a mix breed large dog, I am looking for a great food, price is really not an issue. My cavalier has a small murmur but she is 12 and un symptomatic and the other dog just joint stiffness. My holistic Pet store owner suggested Purevita or Fromm. I just want the best food for her cardiac support and his joint stiffness. Thank you.Karen SMember
Hi, I started using a new organic dog food called Fedwell. It’s grain free kibbles and is made in their home, but very expensive. I was just wondering if anyone has used this or if the editor could make a recommendation on this. My dog is only two, but is allergic to chicken, beef and of course, grain!!! So finding something that has no chicken in it is becoming a pain.
Thanks so much.
I would like to know if anyone uses Natures Logic and your comments.
That is what we use as our main kibble for the dogs and the show cats. We love it because it is not grain free and full of starch, but is very hypoallergenic. Closest thing to a raw diet in a kibble form. No MSG! No synthetic vitamins or minerals from China! Eight flavors to rotate through! Beautiful coats, no scratching, and winning show cats! Can’t find a better kibble out there.
I was referring to Nature’s Logic in my last post.
I know the thing today is “grain free” . Is it the millet that makes it not grain free? I spoke to the specialty dog food store and they referred to it as grain free. I have 7 puppy mill survivors and I thought the Maltese eyes looked better, no runnyness.
Yes it is the millet that makes it not a grain free food but also keeps the starch lower than grain free foods. Millet is gluten free and a great source of fiber.
We use Nature’s Logic regularly. Have never had an issue with it and like the small kibble size.
Thank you so much for your input.Kitty WMember
I would like to nominate Nulo, at least the puppy salmon and peas formula. The company is locally based (Austin), so I might be biased, but the ingredients are right up there with other premium brands. I rotate it with Orijen puppy formula, but Nico (15-week-old Sheltie mix) loves the Nulo, paws down!Barbara TMember
How about Earthborn tubs? They get a 4.5 on your Wet Food list. DrTelaine aMember

“Elite Grain and Potato Free Whitefish 30/14” made in the USA by Sport Dog Food.
I can NOT find any analyses by Dog Food Advisor…or anyone else! It is not sold by “Chewy,” so perhaps our host, Dog Food Advisor, doesn’t perform analysis on non-Chewy merchandised foods? Anyone have info on this Sport Dog Food and/or its “freeze dried” ingredients? It appears very high quality (safe), very nutritional and it is extremely well priced at $49 for 30 lbs. with free 1-2 day shipping by the manufacturer. Calcium-to-phosphorus ratio is a perfect 1 to 1 for my almost one-year-old Standard Poodle puppy.
As in it’s name, it’s Grain and (White) Potato Free, 30% protein and 14% fat. No Corn, Wheat, Soy, Gluten, Beef, Pork, Chicken, Rice, Peas, Beet or Egg, either. First ingredient is Whitefish Meal, which is almost the only animal protein (small amount of Green Lipped Sea Mussel) and the Whitefish Meal is 76% of all protein. Ingredients by order: Whitefish Meal, Yams, Freeze Dried Sweet Potato, Freeze Dried Green Lipped Sea Mussel, Freeze Dried Pumpkin, Freeze Dried Red Clover Sprouts, Freeze Dried Blueberries, Bok Choy, Zucchini, Squash, Kale, Freeze Dried Papaya, Inulin, Cranberries, Parsley, Probiotics, Kelp, Artichokes, Salmon Oil, Herring Oil, (plus vits, mins, etc).Cami DMember
Chicken Soup for the Soul for dog lovers- for both their wet canned food and dry food for adult dogs.
What would be the best canned and dry dog food for a toy Yorkie who has a proclivity to pancreatitis? Molly weighs 7 lbs.
Weruva Human Style canned and Nature’s Recipe cups are low in fat.
And this link below has a list of some low fat possibilities.
Edit: the link is not showing so go to the Home page and type in the search box “best low fat dog foods” and you will find the page that lists several low fat foods.

Cami I have a yorkie that weighs 7 lbs and I feed him weruva and I also think zeal by honest kitchen would be good. It’s low in fat. Simple nourish essentials from petsmart which is ranked a 5 is also low in fat.How old is ur yorkie? Good luck!Gail GMember
Blue Buffalo is my nomination. It’s sort of a new dog food, in our grocery store in several varieties, and I read all the ingredients, and I couldn’t find anything wrong that I’ve read about on the ingredient list. Now, I’m not anti-grain, don’t mind if corn is in it, chicken is the first ingredient and the only meal was chicken meal, and it has many vitamins other foods don’t, and ingredients for the dog’s coat. I guess one of the exceptions that you list must apply to this food and, if possible, I’d like to know just how negative that might be… if the company was simply uncooperative because they’re into making food and not filling an office to answer inquiries, that sort of thing. I REALLY want to get it, they have a Life Protection Formula that I like and also Puppy Formulas. We lost our dog two months ago and are ready now to adopt a new pup, anywhere from 4 months on up to a year… we’ve adopted a couple seniors and “Gone Too Soon” (Michael Jackson) SO applies, so this time it’s going to be a life dog, as we’ve had before. So, if you could give me ANY positive reaction to this food, or any WARNING about it, I want to hear back. Also, if it’s been recalled, I’d like to know why. Thanks for this website!

Blue Buffalo admitted the truth in court yesterday: A “substantial” and “material” portion of Blue Buffalo pet food sold over the past several years contained poultry by-product meal, despite pervasive advertising claims to the contrary. Blue Buffalo asked the Court for additional time to file an Amended Complaint in the litigation, naming its ingredient suppliers as Defendants.
The admission came almost one year to the day when Purina filed a lawsuit against Blue Buffalo for false advertising after testing revealed the presence of poultry by-product meal in some of Blue Buffalo’s top selling pet foods.
Gail having heard something negative lately I thought I would google and see what the latest on Blue Buffalo and came across this info. If I recall correctly they were also part of the melamine deaths of dogs sue to ingredients from China.Megan NMember
I keep hearing things about Victor dry dog food. Does anyone have information on this brand? What grade via the DGAdvusor has or would give it? TIAInkedMarieMember

What about Fromm Heartland Gold Large Puppy Food? It’s Grainfree, which I like. We’re getting another Flat-coated retriever puppy soon. My 2 yr old Flat-Coat loves Fromm’s Grainfree and he is very healthy.Dog Pack MomMember
I would like to be able to see the previous months’ editor’s list. I would also like to suggest that when foods are removed an explanation be given so that is it’s only removed to allow another brand the opportunity to be on the list I would know it is still just as good as the foods currently on the list. Just a suggestion.
Yes Dog Pack Mom, I have several puppy mill survivors and would like to know the reason for removing a particular food. Is it predicated on sales, not quality?Susan WMember
I’d like to Nominate VeRus Pet Foods – specifically their Cold Water Fish
