Here is a list of some of the worst dog foods on the market. There are more I would add to this list. Basically – if a dog food is sold in a normal grocery store or big box store please read the ingredients carefully. Most of these stores do not carry the best dogs foods.
If the first few ingredients are corn, gluten, soy or chicken meal – buyer beware!

I also feel that the Blue Buffalo brand is not the best choice. It has been recalled many times and I have treated several dogs who have experienced intestinal difficulties because of this food.
