Why isn’t this food on the 5 star list.July 15, 2016 at 5:49 pm #88174 Report AbuseMike SagmanAdmin
Please keep in mind that currently, there are more than 340 dog foods rated 4 stars or higher on our website. Yet (by design) Editor’s Choice includes a much smaller selection. Currently, just 21 brands.
There are many reasons why a particular brand may not be included on our lists. And we are particularly cautious with small batch and raw dog foods (as testing and science based design are typically minimal or non-existent).
For example, in most cases, a company may not have met all our guidelines. Or more rarely, its agents may have been unwilling to reveal important manufacturing information.
Or we may be aware of unfavorable information about a company. Or we may have received tips from industry insiders that disqualify certain brands from inclusion on our lists.
In any case, you should be able to find a more detailed answer to your question and many others on our Editor’s Choice FAQ page as well as our How We Rate Dog Foods FAQ page, too.
Hope this helps.July 24, 2016 at 7:29 am #88420 Report AbuseMaria KMember
I think both the Chicken and the Whitefish formulas are great! Would definitely feed them over the Pork or the Venison.
