IAMS pet food- animal testing!

If you want high quality food, go to your pet store (well, 95% will have high quality foods). Orijen, Innova, Evo, California Natural, etc. I actually have a list on all human grade, quality pet food with a review of their ingredients, etc. somewhere... and Science Diet isn't the greatest food either.

I'm not quite sure what they're called right now. I know that I'm wary of anything that you can find in a grocery store, especially after the whole horrific Menu Foods incident!

Jaq- the Authority brand is just petsmarts generic brand, so I am not sure if it is good or not.

I found this site in my research that was pretty helpful.
Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble
I also read how vets recommend certain foods because they get kickbacks from the company. A blogger that I follow..her dog was having issues and was eating IAMs, so her mom confided in a friend that is like a dog whisperer. He told her that: I would never feed my dog Iams because it is made with chicken by-products (of which there are no rules) and corn meal. Meat by-products are any parts of the chicken that is not consumed by people. This could include beaks, feathers, feet. Corn is not digestible for dogs or even humans. It's a filler and causes the dog to eat more and poop more. It's a waste of money. Vets even recommend Science Diet dog food because if they promote the food in vet offices, Science Diet will pay for part of their schooling. Science Diet is another dog food I would suggest my clients to avoid."
Of course this is just one persons opinion. But the more you research, the more you read that is all true.

I did alot of research on this when I first got my Maltese, miss daisy.. and I never had a clue how many of the bigger well known brands were just CRAP.
In the end.. I chose Merrick for Daisy and she has done well with it. The only thing I don't like is that it can be hard to find as it's not sold at any of the chain pet stores. Another one I do really like though is Natural Balance (Daisy eats the small bites particularly) and that is sold at Petco.
Not sure if either of these brands make cat foods but for doggies I've had good experiences.
