    Default Company Researches 2,200 Dog Food Formulas And Finds ONLY 119 To Be Satisfactory

    This just came up on my Facebook page so I thought I would share. I have always checked out Dog Food Advisor or Whole Dog Journal but I suppose another opinion on a food can't hurt.

    The link to the full list didn't work at first but after a few tries, it did.

    Hi, I looked at the list
    . While I think there are many good dogs food companies, what has to be further considered, is if the brand is good for BULLDOGS ?

    Good Day~

    Good info and it looked like they did very thorough research. I also liked how they were up front with their methodology and had good explanations for selections. I had no idea that some of those brands had been bought by the larger corporations with shady practices and had undergone ingredient changes.

    Very interesting! We're currently feeding Merrick Puppy Recipe. We've been debating transitioning her to Earthborn Meadow Feast, because the Merrick puppy recipe has chicken in it, and Effie has such runny eyes and itchiness. I really like that Earthborn Meadow Feast has lamb as it's only protein, and it has no potato! This research definitely makes me feel more confident in switching.

    Excellent article. I am glad to know Earthborn Holistic made it on the list. I have had my girls on it for several months now and neither of them has gas anymore. Thanks for sharing this valuable information.

    I've been wanting to switch to Earthborn Holistics myself but this brand isn't readily available in the feed store I go to. Right now the boys are on Merrick limited ingredient Salmon and I need to read up on why Merrick didn't make the cut.

    @cali baker, We feed Merrick Puppy Recipe right now. The reason they were cut is because they've had recalls. The researchers explained in the article that they cut any brand whose had any recall, even if it was a voluntary recall made by the company themselves. We were actually thinking of transitioning Effie over to Merrick Lamb & Sweet Potato when she's close to running out of her current bag. But, I've read so many wonderful things about Earthborn Holistic, and they've never had any recalls. I think we've decided to transition over to Earthborn Holistic Meadow Feast (Lamb) instead.

    Great information & very useful information to think about.

    Eye opening for many, to be sure and nice to see Fromm's
    on the list.

    As a disabled widow, living alone w/ no family to help, I'm
    feeding the best I can & easiest to buy (for me). I buy at
    Tractor Supply & TOTW Bison, and supplement with home
    cooking. I'm looking for potato free tho as Cami seems to
    be licking her front feet a bit. TOTW has had no recalls but
    Diamond (owner co.) has had some in the past. We all must
    do & feed the best quality we can especially for sensitive bullys.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
