These two Top BEST and WORST Dog Foods charts show the progression from a quality dog food to a cheap corn based dog food – SEE THE DIFFERENCE FOR YOURSELF

A side by side comparison for TOP Worst and Best Dog Foods, with the undesirable and/or harmful ingredients marked with a red check mark to indicate a non desirable ingredient.

It is amazing to see the ingredients in the “best dog foods” are all easily identifiable, edible products which most of us would be able to buy if making this food for our own pets.

You can actually see the progression illustrated as you get further down the list to the worst dog foods.

Notice in some of the cheaper foods that there are several instances on the same ingredient being used more than once, using different names. For instance the use of ground yellow corn and corn gluten meal.

This is only a very small sample for information purposes. It enables us to see the contrast between TOP Worst and Best Dog Foods.

Remember there are THOUSANDS of pet food products available. Learn to read you label and compare. A more expensive high quality dog food will definitely save you money in the long run as you will be raising a much healthier pet with less vet visits.

These best and worst dog foods are for informational purposes. They show the vast difference the pet food industry finds acceptable

BEST DOG FOODS by BRAND – NATURAL / HOLISTIC / ORGANIC / DRY / RAW / CANNED / DEHYDRATED / & FREEZE DRIED – ALPHABETICAL BY BRANDS

BEST AND WORST DOG FOODS SHOWING FIRST 10 INGREDIENTS - CHART # 2





This chart shows how comparison of foods is essential. Most of the dog food brands here have a wide variety of formulas, flavours and types of food. (ie. canned, dry, dehydrated)

Also I have listed by brand and formula rather than company.

For example, Acana, (the first food on this list) is manufactured by Champion Pet Foods and they have many different formulas. I am using the Ranchlands formula here as a base comparison. Although the ingredients may be different on other Acana first ten ingredients, the quality is the same.

Just look at the ingredient list and see if the ingredients are easily pronounced and something you would eat.

The ingredients highlighted in red are undesirable.
