Best-rated dog food reviews

These are our current list of best-rated dog food reviews. This list will change over time, so check back whenever you’re stocking up. Feeding a variety of these dog foods is an excellent idea, and we encourage the feeding of fresh, raw, or raw meaty bones as part of your dog’s diet.

Alternative dog food reviews

Alternative dog food reviews include made to order, air-dried, freeze-dried, rolls, or other styles which can’t be classified as dry or wet commercial dog foods.

Dry dog food reviews

The amount of dry dog foods available in Australia will boggle your mind. In reality most come from the same handful of major manufacturers such as Mars, Nestle, Colgate-Palmolive, and our largest Australian pet food manufacturers Real Pet Food Co, Coprice, and Hypro.

Due to constant changes of brands and formulas in Australia it is possible for these dog food reviews to become out of date. If in doubt check the date of the review, or leave a comment if you find any to be out of date.

About these dog food reviews

Each review is written firstly on the ingredients list and guaranteed analysis, with an explanation on what the ingredients really are and what percentage likelihood they will be (i.e. chicken may be listed first, but if this follows 4 or 5 grains then there won’t be much chicken in the overall formula).

Many other factors are considered without being specifically noted. Consumer feedback will affect how the reviews are rated, especially if a dog food has numerous suspect reports of sickness or diarrhoea (which sadly happens all to often).

Many dog foods in Australia come from the same handful of manufacturers, with more being churned out every week to replace a tarnished brand. Some manufacturers have a worse track record than others, and some manufacturers have shown to have a very high standard of manufacture.

Marketing is always at play, and given the lax standards of pet food regulation in Australia it’s very common for a pet food manufacturer to bend the rules or use cunning tricks to deceive unsuspecting consumers.

All these factors, and others, are accounted for in these dog food reviews.
