    After updating the dry food Index (http://www.petforums.co.uk/dog-health-nutrition/255727-updated-dry-dog-food-index.html) some time ago, I've finally got round to updating this one too! The way I have done it this time enables me to add new foods to the first block of info, rather than adding them onto the end of the thread, which keeps everything in one place :thumbup:

    Like the dry food listings, I’ve based the below information on a 25kg adult dog, living in a home environment with moderate activity levels and all prices are approximate and based on purchasing the packets of food singularly, where possible. All the foods are complete diets, except those marked with a star (*). The foods marked with a star (*) should be fed alongside another complete food, either wet or dry.

    I have gathered the information from packet labels, websites and by contacting the manufacturers directly, and it’s as accurate as I can possibly make it – bare in mind that prices vary depending on where the food is purchased, and ingredients do change from time to time.

    I have loosely grouped the foods into three colour coded groups.

    Green – these are the wet foods that I consider to be of exceptional quality. They have a very high meat content and little or no grains.

    Orange - these are “middle of the road” foods. The quality varies immensely within this group, but I feel they all offer a good quality basic diet for normal healthy dogs, with a decent meat content and reasonable ingredients.

    Red – these foods are the ones that I feel are extremely poor, and that should be avoided. They tend to have either an inadequate meat content, too many cheap fillers, artificial additives, harmful chemicals, added sugar – or a mixture of all of those!

    I MUST STRESS THIS IS MERELY MY OPINION
    Of course, we won't all agree on what is a good food and what isn't.
    I am neither a vet nor a canine nutritionist.

    Thank you for the hard work you have put into producing these lists. Could you please say what the basis is for the choices you have made about classifying these various foods? Is it just the proportion of meat to other ingredients, or are there other things you have taken into consideration? Thank you.

    I take into consideration the meat content, amount of fillers and derivatives, and whether or not there is anything like artifical colourings, flavourings or preservatives, added sugar or cariogenic additives.

    Ingredients: Chicken (60%), brown rice (20%), garden vegetables (15%), minerals, sunflower oil, salmon oil, derivatives of vegetable origin, various sugars

    how come this is green? it's got sugar in it ?!?
    sorry i'm terrified of sugar in dog food. our first dog got diabetes from too much sugar intake and we never gave her human food. that was about 20 years ago, though. i assume regulations have changed

    It is naturally occurring sugar from the vegetables - not spoonfuls of added cane sugar! ;)

    Hello,

    Could you have a look at this food for me please? My pooch currently gets the odd Cesar tray (which he will no longer be getting after reading this!) and he loves the fish one, which is as crap as the beef one you listed...but this one has quite a high meat content so just wondered what you thought? Also, could I feed a Border Terrier pup this occasionally?

    Ingredient(s):
    Salmon (66%), Potato (8%), Potato meal (5% ), Sinflower Oil (0.5%), Seaweed (0.5%),Minerals

    Additives:
    Vitamins: Vitamin A 2,250 IU, Vitamin D3 328 IU, Vitamin E 26 mg. Trace Elements/Kg: Zinc sulphate monohydrate 67 mg, Iron sulphate monohydrate 42mg, Copper sulphate pentahydrate 9.6 mg, Manganese sulphate 6.3 mg, Calcium iodate anhydrous 0.71 mg, Sodium selenite 0.089 mg. Chondroitin 23.5mg


    Thanks in advance
    Jo x
