    Most all of the prescription diets are rated low mainly because they are made for specific ailments and are not good for long term use on a healthy dog. Their ingredients are not usually desirable. And yes, they are expensive here too.

    The ingredients from a one star to a 3-4 star are huge. Same from a 3-4 to a 5 or 6.

    Many of the best quality diets are not heard of because they rely on word of mouth advertising, they do not spend billions on tv advertisements. The money goes into high quality ingredients in the food.

    I just switch my dog over to Blue Wilderness- Duck flavor. My bully seems to really like it. Its pricey but i think its well worth it. my bully seems to be a lot more active since being put on Blue. Its great be cause its grain free also. I would recommend it to any body that owns an english bulldog.

    The reviews were initially done by myself with the help of other online food ratings sites, talking with top rated food reps, ingredient panel research, and member testimonials.

    As you are looking at the ratings of foods please understand a lot of the RC brand is prescription diets that are made specifically for certain ailments of pets in general. So be sure the rating you are looking at is the specific food you are feeding. RC also pays a lot for marketing and promoting their products which goes directly out of the food you are feeding.

    Eukanuba has improved I think but they are still a P&G brand and still not a great food.

    Years ago before they were bought out by p&g they were actually one of the better foods available for their day back in the1990's.

    I'm on my phone so I can't link you but reading the article of understanding dog food labels and finding bad ingredients can really help you choose a quality food.

    There are some good foods here. James Wellbeloved, Wainwrights, Wafcol are all good foods with good quality ingredients.
    ones to avoid are Purina Beta, Pedigree, Eukanuba and fish4dogs.

    I think JWB is actually cheaper than Royal Canin too x

    We should add these to our ratings. Do they have ingredients panels like in the USA? @cowsmom @Lucy-licious?

    Hi new to this site. I just rescued a little (38.3lbs) 2 y.o. female english bulldog and am trying to find a good dog food for her. The original owners had her on Alpo which I was not happy about no grocery store foods for her. I put her on RoyalCanine bulldog until I can find something that's best for her. I've been reading a lot about FROMMS. Any advice would be awesome and thank you for your time
