    There isn't a massive meat content and the maize is quite high - maize is used as a filler as it's quite cheap.

    Have you seen www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk ?

    It is an independent dog food comparison website which scores all types of foods (dry, raw, wet) on a scale of 0 to 5. You can set filters for your dog's weight, age etc and choose to view only the foods scoring, say, 4 and above. Then you can show them listed according to daily feeding cost so you can see what gives you best value for money. It has its limitations but it's a decent place to start.

    i ended up asking a vet and he said the same, it’s not better than pedigree :/. i’ve tried that website but i’m not from the uk so most of the food that’s there isn’t available here unfortunately.

    Ah, that could be harder then. What I look for is a decent meat content, with it specifically named like beef or chicken, not just generic meat or meat meal. A lot of people avoid grains as they are hard for dogs to digest - basically they come back out the other end as enormous smelly poos and give little nutritional benefit (if any at all). I currently feed a food that has a small amount of grain because my dog does really well on this food. And that actually is the important thing - if your dog does well on it, it's fine. If you see other foods that you want us to comment on, feel free to put up more pictures.
