i bought Purina dry food for my cat and her hair started falling out. My mom bought Purina dry dog food for her dog Max and all he does is fart and he hates it. Not sure whats up with that. There is way to much filler cap in our animal food. This list contains no Organics. I will not be purchasing any of them. Public's used to carry Newman's Organics but not anymore. My animals loved it. I guess I am going to have to order it as I am having a hard time finding any quality food that is affordable. I can't my cat to eat any canned food at all, only dry.


geez, calm down.


YOU DON'T KNOW THAT - that is absolutely HORRIBLE thing to say! To bad you don't give your acidic attitude and behavior as much attention, correction and maintenance as you do your DOGS FOOD. Way to lose *ALL* credibility on anything out of your awful mouth! And to think, your poor animals have to live around that... *sad.
Oh, well. As long as they eat well. Right?!?


I agree totally with Judy---NO ORGANIC DOG FOOD LISTED?? What a joke!!


What about now dog food. I need a food that lists the phosphorous and very few brands due. My dog needs a high quality food with low phosphorous due to kidney disease. The vet Royal Canine brand does not cut it. It 90 percent rice and does not fill him at all.


Organic doesn't mean vegetarian so before you try to be a keyboard badass, Google something and actually get your facts straight.


I am tired of this "organic" crap. How do you think dogs survived for 100's of years - yeah that's right, on MEAT. Oh no, they even hunted and killed it themselves.


I noticed there is no Acana nor Orijen on this list. They make all on this list look like rat food. All natural, best thing short of a raw diet plan.


why organic i have no problems what so ever i feed ceaser and never had a little problem at all??


In May 2014 my beautiful black lab almost died. She was vomiting blood and barely alive.Four days in the hospital and $900.00 with inconclusive results, I was told it was possibly G.I. issues and they said feed a certain brand of dog food that they sold that was about $3.00 a can. I did for 3 months. I switched back to Purina. I noticed she started having some weird issues again. I found this on the web.
711 complaints and many dog and cats deaths.
No more Purina for this house.


Not one of those is available in my area.
I'd like to see a review on common dog foods like Purina, Pedigree etc.....


There is not one organic dog food on this list. Which means the meat in all of the dog foods you recommend is CAFO meat! I don't THINK I'd want to feed any of them to my dog! Organic is a MUST no matter who makes it!
