Dog Food Comparison Chart – Compare Dog Food Brands by Ingredients

GOOD DOG FOOD VS. BAD DOG FOOD

Not only do the “grocery store kibble” have ingredients that don’t sound like something a carnivore should eat, they also contain these unhealthy ingredients more than once. (ie. ground yellow corn, and corn gluten meal)

Below are some of the best dog food brands and some of the worst dog food brands compared side by side for informational purposes.

I know which foods I don’t want to feed my dogs, that’s for sure.

  1. Is Rachel Rays food a healthy food? How about Costco dog food. I can’t afford blue buffalo. What’s is comparable? Thank you so much. !! Susan

  2. I have been feeding my dogs Nutro Chicken and Rice for years. The ones I can’t keep weight on get Petcurean Go! Chicken and Rice which seems to work for them (I also give a small spoonful of fresh minced chicken with their evening meal). This regime has worked. I like the Petcurean brand and in New Zealand am able to get hold of it and Acana/Orijen, however both brands are VERY expensive. Nutro is more affordable.

    Could you add Nutro to your list where ever it may fit so I can do a comparison and make a decision as to whether I stick with it. Originally I put the dogs on it because one of them was allergic to everything else and it worked for her… but she has gone now and have just never made the change.

    Thanks!
