I know the James wellbeloved is a good one but for anyone more knowledgable, whats the best dry food- James Wellbeloved, Orijen or the new applaws dry food? Any advice would be gratefully appreciated!
Applaws seems pretty good, with 80% chicken and 20% vegetables. I can't see the ingredient list, which makes me skeptical. If you have it, can you please post it?
James well beloved: White rice (min 26%), turkey meat meal (min 26%), turkey fat, maize gluten, potato protein (min 9%), poultry gravy, tomato pomace, omega-3 oil supplement, chicory extract, carrot, cranberry extract (min 0.05%), DL methionine, lysine hydrochloride, taurine, threonine, zinc methionate, yucca extract, rosemary oil. - I wish the first ingredient wasn't rice, and that there was no maize gluten.
Deboned chicken, chicken meal, turkey meal, russet potato, lake whitefish, chicken fat, sweet potato, whole eggs,deboned turkey, salmon meal, salmon and anchovy oils, salmon, natural chicken flavour, sunflower oil, sun-cured alfalfa, dried brown kelp, carrots, spinach, peas, tomatoes, apples, psyllium, dulse, glucosamine Hcl, cranberries, black currants, rosemary extract, chondroitin sulfate, sea salt. Orijen is a very clean forluma, packed with human grade proteins, and grain free.
IMO the best is Origen, but the three of the are good in quality - again, assuming there are no by-products on the first one.
