Alright, Good-o, let’s see what’s so good-o about this food…

I’ll give it credit for being colourful. The packaging’s colourful, and the food’s colourful too given they use colourings. Sadly your pooch doesn’t get any nutritional benefit from eating food colourings, so it’s a moot point.

Good-o Dog Food Review

The packaging states quality meat proteins and wholegrain cereals for healthy digestion, but the ingredients show these to be in reverse. Wheat is the main ingredient in this food, being better known as a cheap allergenic filler more than an ingredient for healthy digestion. The meat proteins aren’t screaming quality to me either, being by-products of poultry.

What really screams out to me is the overall analysis – 16% protein is very low, as is a mere 7.5% fat! How will your dog maintain muscle mass? How will your dog find energy? If you find your dog to be lethargic on this food, then I’m really not surprised.

Humectants are used to retain moisture, and it’s likely the real ingredient is glycerin. It prevents nutrient absorption, which is drastic in a food that contains so little nutrition as it is. I wonder what they mean by palatant. What are they using to make the food palatable? Why aren’t they telling you what it is? It should be the meat that makes it palatable for crying out loud. By palatant they mean digest, a nasty broth created from processing 4D animals in a meat rendering plant. 4D stands for Dead, Dying, Diseased, or Down.

They don’t list the amount of salt in the food, but it’s horrible seeing it in the top 5 ingredients.

You may save money buying this food, but you’ll fork out much more on vets bills later when you’re nursing a seriously sick dog.

The Mars company needs to stick to making Mars Bars, they’re healthier.

Wouldn’t believe the reviews left for moist and meaty on Amazon doesn’t make it a good food.
Drinking a lot or smoking and dying old doesn’t mean it was healthy, same difference.

I have been buying “good os” as a breakfast snack for my dogs for a few years now. The packaging has changed and so has the recipe, my dogs will not eat them at all!, I now find myself with a large bag of mini ones that will not be eaten! Thanks Mars

Funny thing is on the very occasional times this dog food has made it into my house my too little dogs get so excited and wolf down the Goodo like a couple of kids being given Mars bars for the first time.

I actually fed this food with our first chihuahua its probably why he died so young and we were also super dumb and fed cooked bones.

Thing is though there’s always plenty of comments saying “can’t people read?” But if you would of asked my kid self if this dog food was ok to feed I’d have told you “yes” because until I was around 21 and started learning stuff about dog food I actually looked at plenty of dog food ingredient labels and I didn’t see anything wrong with any of them.
