    That's very helpful and interesting to see the feeding costs. Thanks for doing that - sure it'll help a lot of people. Claire

    Very well done,a lot of time and effort involved!

    I like the colour ratings for foods,and agree with you on most"if not all"of the foods involved,there are others,but the list is endless!

    This will benefit some that are unsure of what foods to choose for their dog,regarding cereals,feeding costs etc!

    I think this is what the forum needs!

    A good rating system,based on types of foods,including nutritional value,prices and experiences on feeding!

    Well done for putting all this data together - but do you not think that the "Suggested daily amount" is meaningless - why not simply quote price per Kilo ?

    That and the percentage of the main ingredients allows you compare the brands.

    If you seek a 35% meat content food for £1 /Kg buy supermarket value sausages. (A third of the price of many of the biscuits.)

    Looking at that list, many contain the lovely phrase meat meal and animal by-products and by-product derivatives.

    A link to one of the many EU laws that define Animal By-Products.

    Hmmmmmmmm tasty Category Three by-products :eek:hmy:
