The following is a list of The Advisor’s best dry dog foods. To be included here, each must have earned at least 4 stars.
I am on here nearly every day trying to find something best for my lab, he is so picky one week he will eat merrick, the next he won’t. I have tried just about every dry food on the pet advisor top list, today it’s nutro natural choice ultra dry I am thinking of trying. He is a rescue dog and he had heart worms when we adopted him, he came thru the operation to kill the worm and he has been thru so much we don’t want to feed him a dog food that is not good for him. He is 4 yrs old now and weighs 75 lbs, we love him so much, the best dog in every way. I love this web site but getting to be overwhelming finding the right/safe foods…we only buy food made in the U.S.A. I learned that a barcode that starts with a 01 or 02 is USA made

The following is a list of The Dog Food Advisor’s best dry dog foods that contain at least one puppy food in their product line.I just inherited a 3 yr. old Male St. Bernard 215lbs. I currently food my other dog Grain free earthborn dry kibble “& occcasionally add some Stella chewys freeze dried raw. My St. has been on Royal Canin German Shepard breed dry kibble. But it contains grains. I like that it’s a larger size kibble for him. I want to do what is best for him. I’d welcome any advice especially if anyone out there with same breed? Tia. SandyI think that this list needs to be revisited and have the companies that are constantly having recalls removed. Doesn’t seem logical to have a list like this on Dog Food Advisor that emails recalls, but still lists those companies on their 5 star recommended lists. Kindof a false hope of a “Best of the Best” list…esp for those just starting their journey.My best advice is to see how your dog does with it and to keep track of the calories if you are combining different foods. My dog has done well eating many different food combinations, some dogs don’t. I started my guy on Orijen Regional Red about a month ago and his diarrhea,vomiting and weight loss issues are now a distant bad memory 😀 Today he just finished his last cup of the small bag I bought him and he GOBBLED IT UP just as much as he did the 1st! Tomorrow I will be buying it again,but a bigger bag…lol. Good news is that since it is so rich,I can feed him 1/2 as much as the other foods, but what he has gained since being on this food is BEYOND BELIEF!!! The BEST advice i can give anyone whose dog is struggling with issues….don’t give up (it took me 18 mnths to find what worked for my Kita). Just keep trying until you find what works for your dog b/c no matter what praises anyone gives any one food,it may not be right for your dog. Dogs are after all,just as individual as we are.Hello, I have a 4 year old “mutt” (half lab-half puggle) who suffers from idiopathic epilepsy and before putting her on any strong medications I have read that many dogs who suffer from this, it has to do with their diet. Gluten/grain free diets are best. I am all for making her food and have even found quite a few recipes but I am unsure of vitamins and other ingredients that she needs. Does anyone have a similar issue and would like to give me some advice on where to go from here. Her vet is currently not helping me and I am on the verge of finding a new one. Any advice would be great appreciated!
