dog food ratings
Here are dog food ratings for many of the most popular dog foods on the market today.
These ratings were reached using Sarah Iricks' method of grading dog food, which uses a very detailed points system to determine the overall value/quality of an individual dog food.In the uncertain world of dog food today, these kind of dog food ratings are hugely valuable.
The consistency of the dog food analysis method makes it easy to apply to any dog food of your choice, and gives all puppy and dog owners a way to evaluate the diet they're already feeding, or plan to use.
You can see the actual dog food rating system used here, on our Dog Food Comparisons page, where we show you EXACTLY how to analyze any dog food using the list of ingredients.
