Harry and Lola 1st ingredient should be a meat 'meal' like chicken meal or lamb meal rather than just chicken or lamb etc, as meal has most of the moisture removed and therefore has more protein and minerals.

CharlieB.Barkin On nearly every food they've been on both of my dogs have had these weird problems every now and then.

huntergreen the best food for any dog is the one that is tolerated and does well on.

CharlieB.Barkin Kind of a long video, but is this a good guide to be following?

how do you provide your dog with a bit of variety? Do you ever give them fruit?

sagelfn ^^ ditto.

I never really liked dogfoodadvisor I preferred dogfoodanalysis and dogfoodproject. The truthaboutpetfood is also a good site.

kr16 Take that site or whats its worth. The guy is a dentist that reviews food. Its a good basis than research on your own. He does not take a terrible company into effect on his reviews. He looks at ingredients not where come from or if the company has had mega recalls or deaths.

As far as best meats, its the one your dog does best on. Really hard for someone to say, best meats. For me, Lamb, Bison or Venison. For my dog, lol they eat anything.

I rotate Orijen & Honest Kitchen Preference. Preference is the one that you have to add meat to. I have used venison, rabbit, salmon & the usual beef and chicken. Nothing really exotic.
Orijen contained "pea fibre"
Orijen Dog Food | Review and Rating

Most of the dog foods had that ingredient. It probably makes absolutely no difference, but I kept it out to keep the list neat.

Best Meats to Look for in a Dog Food?

I went to the Dog Food Advisor website and went through all of their "overviews" of 5 star dogs foods and I made a list of the foods that didn't have any "questionable ingredients." This is that list:

Acana Regional’s Grain-Free
Canidae Grain Free Pure
DNA Dog Food (Dehydrated)
Dr. Harvey’s Oracle Dog Food
EVO Dog Food
Great Life Grain Free
Hi-Tek Naturals Grain Free
Holistic Blend Grain Free
Honest Kitchen Dog Food (Dehydrated)
Nature’s Logic
Nutram Grain Free Dog Food
Pioneer Naturals Grain Free
Primal Freeze-Dried Formula (Freeze-Dried)
Sammy Snacks Ancestry Dog Food
Timber Wolf Platinum
Tuscan Natural Carne Dog Food
Wysong Uncanny Dog Food (Dehydrated)
Ziwi Peak Daily Dog (Dehydrated)

Besides that fact that I've never heard of half of these, none of them have bison, deer or any other "exotic" meats high on the list. I had always wanted to see how my dogs react to those.
This brings me to my question. What meats are the best for your dog?
