What are the good brands of commercial dog food? Wet and dry. Ones that don't have nasty animal derivatives in it. I know that I'll be urged to feed raw meet ripped fresh from the nearest stray bunny, but I just would like to know what's good that comes in a packet, from a shop (or vet). Thank you.
Hi, I won't persuade you to try raw, but you can get minced raw foods from reputable companies such as Natural Instinct, so there's no need to rip apart a bunny...
We use Millie's Wolfheart for kibble, which is high quality and grain free, order online for next day delivery. People will tend to recommend what they feed their dog tbh, but that might not be right for YOUR dog.
Here's a link to a really useful website, so you can select the right food for your breed of dog.
Currently feeding ours James Wellbeloved, which she was on at the rescue she came from. We have tried others, mainly because she went off the JB stuff. She ate them all, put on weight on Iams very quickly, the cheaper ones made for rather squishy poops (not good for clearing up!), so have gone back to JB, but bought different flavours to mix it up a bit! Interestingly Waitrose own brand seemed good - she enjoyed it, poops were firm and not unduly stinky, just pain to buy as we don't shop regularly at Waitrose.
We found that of tins readily available in supermarkets (kibble doesn't suit our old boy), Chappie and Butchers Tripe plain original are best. I've heard them mentioned by others on here too - they're not the complete crap that some makes are.
