If someone has done chemical analysis on each brand, please point me in the direction of THAT site! I kid but, if you know of other online resources (that don't take money from dogfood companies), please share.
And I certainly won't claim that any food is "the best." No food is perfect for every dog. I own a pet store and you'd be surprised how many people don't want to hear that. They just want to know what the "best" is. Both of my bullies did poorly on Wellness formulas (which rated very highly), and better on Merrick (which rated lower). I tried Eagle Pack Holistic Chicken Meal because of it's rating, and they didn't even want to eat it!
At this point I do a rotation of kibbles (TOTW, Innova, TW and Merrick BG), supplements, and add frozen/raw one day a week. TOTW has had no problems with myself or any customers so far, and sells well since it has the lowest price point of any quality grain-free diet I've found. I'm by no means saying it's "the best" just sayin I like it and had great results when it was my sole food.
Lab test no... but real time test yes. I've tasted all the foods I feed
I actually visted the factory for innova, and I've fed TOTW for a few years now. and Orijen is from Canada and everything from canada is good.
No I have really done a lot of trial time with dog foods that have good ingr. (that I could get in Hawaii.) I know what works for my dogs. You hit it on the head. What works for my dog. I feed raw too, but I also hunt so its a little easier for me to get meat then it might be for others. blah blah im rambeling
