As mentioned above, it is possible to buy pet food with very high meat content, the meat is a lean meat which cuts down the amount of fat in your dog's diet. In the example across you can see that there are very minimal ingredients, and chicken makes up 75% of the meal.
This is a high-quality brand, and you do pay more for a higher meat content - but you get what you pay for.
We cannot tell you what to buy for your dog; it is the owner's decision but we wanted to make owners aware of what they could be feeding their dogs.
If you have a food brand you are currently feeding your dog or wish to switch to, or you don't know what to choose there is a very helpful website that allows you to view the nutritional value of the food. It also takes into account your budget for dog food and shows you suggestions on the best food to buy within your budget.
Click on the following link and have a play with it - try putting in the most popular food brand you know, we can guarantee that you will be shocked by how little nutritional value they have: www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk
Personally, I try to buy my own dog food which hits at least 80% nutritional value. There are very afforable options despite the food being a higher quality.
