the section about protein is very misleading. Wet food often has dramatically more protein per dry matter basis then 'dry' food. If you either remove the water from 'wet food' or add water to 'dry food' you can better compare the actual levels your pet consumes... because if your pet doesn't take in their hydration in their food they are drinking water after eating.

True story: Our previous dog was fed a high quality food (none of those listed on the chart) and never smelled bad, shiny coat etc. Then one day a rep brought free 10 lb.bags of a leading brand, but their supposedly "high end " food to the clinic where my daughter works. Having no dog, she passed it on to us. Not wishing to be wasteful, we began using it. Within 2 days our dog smelled terrible - a doggie, rank odor, kind of the canine equivalent of B.O. Needless to say we needed no further evidence of the benefits of good dog food, and went ahead and "wasted" the cheaper stuff.

The raw food information is also misleading. Many folks (myself included) have fed raw, modified raw and also given raw meaty bones to our dogs. Bones of the appropriate size should NOT be cooked. When they are cooked they can cause the damage mentioned above. As for homemade or raw diets being lacking in proper vitamins and minerals, this is where canine supplements are used. People who choose to feed this way often spend countless hours painstakingly researching what goes into their dogs. While the above certainly seeks to educate pet owners, you must take into account the WHOLE of pet owners, which includes those who feed raw/modified raw with great results. Unfortunately even vets nowadays are not educated extensively on canine nutrition and certainly not the pet food industry. There is a lot more information to be put out there in a way that doesn't appear to contradict and confuse the average consumer...

It is too bad that the largest global brands are also some of the junkiest foods for your dog :(
