Dog Food Rated and Reviewed
« on: June 28, 2008, 03:21:16 PM »
Came across this site that reviews and rates dog food and thought it might be of interest.
Their FAQ explains how they rate the food.  I found brands sold here in the UK given a 4, 3, 2 and 1 rating.

What  ??? . In UK not sold fresh froozen dogmeat? The brand Duck is available in UK too now. Fresh froozen raw food.
He is your friend, partner, defender, and your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

first link with their star ratings lost me a bit - wasn't entirely convinced by some of the ratings for some things - but the analysis in the seond link was quite good to follow.

though it has worried me that the james wellbeloved ocean white fish and rice they say 'the manufacturer does not claim to use ethoxyquin free sources'  :-\  ???

but they don't say that with the turkey and rice.

We can get frozen raw meat for dogs here Diesel ;)
The website seems to be American/Canada, and is just ratings on dry food ;)


Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away

The website does cover wet food too and I understand if a food is not rated you can request a review.

I thought so. Carnibest and other brands i not know but Duck is Belgian. Was while ago they promoting to be sold in UK too for the first time. Can't remember when, but not so long ago.

Ahyes, the wet food i saw too. But them rating Duck....  ::) hmmm, how can you judge something right only by paper. Doubt Amerika-Canada have any experience with Duck  :-\ . It sold Benelux since 70'. Since year or so in UK too, but not further away, i think.
