Dog food review websites/ Dog diets

I'm looking for a site that reviews different organic dog food brands. Does any have any opinions or recommendations? I've found a few different brands but I'm not sure what's better. Does anyone here feed there dog a raw diet?

yeah, i am thinking about the same thing... My dog just went from cancer, and now i keep hearing its more and more common... Raw poultry diet seems o be the way to go now, and also use organic fertilizer... My dog gets eukanuba, and we have used it for about 4 years. dry of course.

Back in the saddle again...

I know a number of people who feed their dogs the raw diet. It is not hard at all; however the folks I know DO spend about one Sunday a month preparing the month's food, and they have a separate freezer in the garage to hold everything. It's expensive, but if you have a show-quality dog and the money and time to spare I think it's worth it.

My dogs has always gotten Eukanuba (dry) from day 1. She's now into the senior-type food and she's 100% healthy. Healthy as a horse, that dog is

I feed Rusty Nature's Variety Prairie. You can even rotate the proteins with this food without any problems every time you get a new bag. I rotate flavors every time. He ate Venison this past bag. It is like $50.00 for a 30 some lb. bag, but it is great food. Tons of protein in it and all kinds of veges and stuff. I took him off Nutro and put him on this. He has the shiniest coat and great health. You only have to feed a little bit each day with this food, so the bag lasts forever. Rusty at 80lbs. eats 2 cups per day. You can only get it at certain places, and they have a whole selection of raw food made by the same people also. I have not tried any of that yet, but plan to. Here is the website: www.naturesvariety.com

Solid gold, wysong, and Innova Evo are the best holistic dogs foods IMO. They are a bit pricey, but completely worth it. Check out their websites...

I've been doing a lot of research on this. Eukanuba is supposed to be really bad and Innova Evo has a protein content that is way to high with no long term research. I'm at work now and don't have the links handy but I will post up supporting documents tomorrow evening when I get home.

A good website to check out is www.pitbullforum.com

One brand I've only heard good things about is, be aware that it really isn't organic though:

The whole food debate in the pet world is like the helmet debate in the motorcycling world. I personally feed Solid Gold, but I'm also a big fan of Wysong. I've heard a lot of good things about Innova Evo, and that is what I feed my ferret (the cat food), however ferrets need a lot of protein.

Eukanuba sucks the big one, along with Iams, Purina, Pedigree, Science Diet, etc....I'm too tired to think of anymore of them right now.
