A Comparison of the High-Quality Foods
There are many fine premium wet dog foods available at pet stores and high-end grocery stores. Selecting only 10 is a challenge. However, choosing a food for a medium-sized, adult dog narrowed the field a little, and www.dogfoodanalysis.com was extremely helpful.
It’s important for the dog to have a balanced diet, and these brands have not only balanced diets, but human-grade protein and vegetables. Some even have fruit. All of them have vitamin and mineral additives that complete the dog’s diet. So, in alphabetical order here are what some could call the best.
Blue Buffalo—This food contains no animal by-products, such as blood, corn, wheat, soy or gluten. It also has fruits and vegetables like whole carrots, sweet potatoes, blueberries and cranberries. Whole grains like brown rice and barley provide the complex carbohydrates a dog needs for energy.
Castor & Pollux—This food has no animal by-products, corn or wheat. It uses brown rice instead. It also balances the meat with veggies and a vitamin/mineral blend. The food is certified organic.
Evanger’s—Evanger’s offers premium, balanced food and supplemental cans of just meat. In its whole meal cans there are carrots, peas, apples and pasta in addition to human-grade meat and the required vitamin/mineral mix. This meal is for a special treat since it costs nearly $30 a can.
Halo—Halo is another all natural dog food with USDA-approved chicken and veggies, such as carrots, zucchini, squash, green beans and celery. There’s also no added salt, sugar or artificial preservatives, colors and flavors.
Innova—Innova offers cooked and raw food for the canine population. The cooked food includes herring and safflower oils for the omega fats. There’s pumpkin for fiber.
Merrick—Merrick throws in everything but the kitchen sink. There’s chicken, chicken liver, potatoes, carrots, peas, apples and olive and flaxseed oils for the omega fats. The chicken pot pie dinner is spiced with thyme, sage and rosemary.
Nature’s Logic—Besides the chicken, its liver and heart, Nature’s Logic adds lots of veggies like spinach, broccoli and carrots and fruits like blueberries (one of nature’s best sources of anti-oxidants), pumpkin (for fiber) and cranberries.
Nature’s Variety—Like so many others Nature’s Variety has no grains. It does have premium meat, vegetables, fruits and the required vitamin/mineral mixture. The company has the Instinct brand and the Prairie brand.
Old Mother Hubbard Cupboard Creations—Yes, that Old Mother Hubbard, the one that makes the big bag of treats. OHM uses potato for its starch and adds red pepper and celery to the peas and carrots. Old Mother Hubbard also produces the Wellness brand.
Solid Gold—Solid Gold has fish in its meals for the dog who likes seafood. Plus, there are carrots and sweet potatoes, and, of course, no grains.
So, for the discerning dog and owner these brands can provide nutritious, balanced meals.
They all provide human-grade food with the most available protein, vitamins and minerals that can sustain a dog for many years.
