This is all you need. This non biased site analyzes dry and wet food. My dog enjoys Pro Plan Selects canned food, which happens to use no harmful/controversial ingredients and received 4/5 stars

Like any other member of our family, pets also hold a special place in our lives, in our family. It is our responsibility to provide best care to them to ensure their overall well being. Caring for your pet is not hard if we follow some basic tips.

The most important aspect to keep your pets brimming with energy is to provide them with nutritious food and pure water. If you have pet dogs, feed them twice daily with quality dog food. Give them a mix of moist tinned food along with some dry biscuits.

Feed your pet cat twice daily with quality cat food along with one meal of dry food and another with tinned food. Give them pure drinking water and make sure you change the bowl of water every single day. Puppies and kittens should be fed with small quantities of soft food 3 to 5 times a day until the time their teeth grows strong for dry food.

Don't Feed Raw Fish to Your Dog!

Raw meat and raw fish, can contain bacteria that cause food poisoning. In addition, certain kinds of fish such as salmon, trout, shad, or sturgeon can contain a parasite that causes fish disease. If not treated, the disease can be fatal within 2 weeks. The first signs of illness are vomiting, fever, and big lymph nodes. Thoroughly cooking the fish will kill the parasite and protect your dog.

Few people feed fish to their dog, but dogs can find fish by rummaging through garbage can and fish boxes, by eating fish trimmings and carcasses along streams or beaches, or by digging up buried fish .Fish fed to dogs should be well cooked to destroy the cysts containing the disease causing organism. Other less common but possible means of infection may occur when dogs eat feces from other fluke infested dogs or fish-eating mammals. There are many other food substances that can be harmful to dogs such as garlic, raw or cook onions and onion powder, potatoes, rhubarb and tomato leaves. Sugary foods not only lead to obesity but can also cause dental problems and possibly diabetes mellitus. Raw eggs, raw fish and too much salt can also lead to canine health problems.

Raw meat is best, chicken necks are good, 1 - 6 at a time, sart off with 1-2, till their stomach gets used to eat. Raw bones, blade steak or bbq steak has the best bone, then you can cook up the meat and feed him/her the meat after they have had a chew on the bone. Beef marrow bones to chew on. I have a rule in our house, if I won't eat it why should the dog. I make up dishes of cooked meat, carrot, rice, that will last a few days. Onions are toxic to the dog. Cooked bones can splinter in their digestive system.

The question "What is the best food?" is always tough to answer with a simple brand name. There are a few things you can look for in a pet food that should help you narrow your search.
- First, the 95% rule can be helpful in canned food. Legally, any food which is branded as only the meat ingredient (ie. Turkey Dog Food) must be 95% that ingredient. This is not to be confused with something like "Turkey Dinner Dog Food" or "Turkey Feast Dog Food" which must only contain 25% turkey (or whatever ingredient is listed). "Dog Food with Turkey" needs only 3% turkey, and "Turkey Flavored Dog Food" has no restrictions.
- You should also avoid by-products (even if the source is listed), grains, artificial ingredients (preservatives, colors, flavors)
- It is also generally advisable to avoid well marketed brands; odds are, if you see commercials for it, it's not good. This is probably not true 100% of the time, but it's true enough to say it. Brands like Iams, Pro Plan, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Kibbles 'n' Bits, etc. are to be avoided,

My personal recommendations for the best pet foods on the market include, but are not limited to, Blue Buffalo, Orijen, Solid Gold, Innova, or Wellness. These are all solid, holistic foods which use almost exclusively domestic ingredients, no byproducts, no fillers, etc. and are not unreasonably priced for the most part (at least local to me).

Hope that helps!
