Thanks, Lynne....this is so helpful! I feed Orijen kibble with one meal a day of Honest Kitchen. It is always so hard to know what is a good food when there are so many on the market. I haven't made the move to cooking for my dogs yet like you do. I imagine the Honest Kitchen is the closest to that. I do supplement with apples, carrots, etc as treats and Three Dog Bakery cookies that they love (one a day, since Lola needs to lose weight).
I still free feed kibble. I like to keep up on all this because I do switch up my kibble with every bag. Don't forget, too, these companies could change hands or change formulas, so it's good to check every now and then. This list was compiled as of this month. I just subscribed to their list so I will keep an eye on these brands. But it's nice to have the list.
Can you explain to me what the red flag ingredients mean? What ingredients are not good in it?

Also the * before avg. rating dog?

Thanks again...
I put the star on those products that were not at least 4 paws. If you notice sometimes the kibble is 4 paws, but the can is less.

As far as the red flag ingredients, in some cases the company did not answer Petsumer Reports back in their inquiry. In some cases, it could not be determined where the ingredients came from.

My feelings are, if a company is not forthcoming and if there is not full disclosure, I won't use the product.
