    I absolutely LOVE Farmina.

  2. karen m on March 24, 2022 at 8:14 am

    New pet owner here! Can you please look at the panel of fresh pet food for small breed and also can you talk about different certifications such as WSAVA. I am so lost and just want the best for my new pup

  3. Bluecrazy200 ! on March 24, 2022 at 8:15 am

    Just found out I’ve been feeding my dogs shitty food for years ;-;

  4. TheJammerlee on March 24, 2022 at 8:16 am

    I’d love it if you would consider a video on Natural Balance specifically. Also as a video recommendation, maybe something on how to work with coaxing a picky dog into eating? .. Especially a dog who’s become picky and refuses to eat after a recent illness. Asking for a friend. That friend is my chihuahua

  5. Deborah Malandra on March 24, 2022 at 8:16 am

    Is it necessary to use same brand for dry and wet puppy/dog food? Also, you you have a specific recommendation for Cavalier King Charles Spaniels? I read they need some grains because of tendency to have heart issues. Thank you for your informative videos.

  6. Jesus Pantoja on March 24, 2022 at 8:17 am

    What about blue, I’ve been told that blue is a good brand, I been giving my dogs blue for years

  7. Jay Lew on March 24, 2022 at 8:18 am

    I just feed them the same canned chicken humans eat

  8. Love on March 24, 2022 at 8:19 am

    U are great

  9. Shannon Hunsberger on March 24, 2022 at 8:20 am

    Thank you for teaching how to read an ingredient label!!!!!❤️ And what it all means!!!!❤️

  10. Classic City Vapors on March 24, 2022 at 8:20 am

  12. Julia Mullins on March 24, 2022 at 8:21 am

    Please do a cat food review!!!!!!! Soon

  13. Ruth Esther on March 24, 2022 at 8:22 am

    Love your review on the canned dog food. Pedigree told me they don’t use 4 d meats but if they do they will never admit it. I like the cheers list. You can feed your dog a decent canned dog food and not go bankrupt. You and the dog will be happy. Dog food prices are really going up, but I hope people will stay away from pee pee poo poo and the yuckies. Thanks😬😬😬👌👍

  14. gusvortech on March 24, 2022 at 8:24 am

    I was looking at both wet dry dog food vids, I was hoping you could mention your thoughts on Nutro. I feed both the dry, I add wet, and a topping, plus I’ll add in mushrooms, and salmon oil. Both dry and wet are Nutro. I’m wondering how I’m doing.
    Like you say, I’d like to still buy food from a local store in case I need a bag quickly, but I really don’t know what bag is decent/better quality food for my girl Delta. She’s a German Shepherd.
    I do think ultimately I want to get her into a raw diet, but there are so many things out in the net. I’d like a book recommendation I could read on for when I get her onto the raw feed, I do a good job. 😊 thank you so much.

  15. CapriBBY on March 24, 2022 at 8:25 am

    thank you for posting this i used to buy my dogs food on veterinary recommendations but you’ve helped me understand it takes more than that.

  16. Richard Taitt on March 24, 2022 at 8:26 am

    Thank You……What about Acana???

  17. Sophie Moon on March 24, 2022 at 8:29 am

    Thanks a lot 🧡 My dog definitely loves farmina! “all flavours”! (I’ve tired to feed him like mostly every canned food that seemed pretty okay for me: terra canis, natural gretaness, lilys kitchen, ziwipeak, retorn, edgard cooper, natures menu, gosbi, alpha spirit, etc and he didn’t really like them) i would like to buy stella and orijen but cannot buy them in europe:(

  18. XKULLY on March 24, 2022 at 8:29 am

    Your goated fr 🙏❤️ thanks for the knowledge I was adjusting my diets and avoiding natural flavors and additives and preservatives and wanted to do the same for my dogs diet

  19. Daric Zamora on March 24, 2022 at 8:29 am

    Hi, your channel is so informative and extremely helpful, I was wondering what are your thoughts about single ingredient canned foods, such as against the grain or evangers? Thank you in advance

  20. Happy N Clermont on March 24, 2022 at 8:31 am

    What do you think of Wellness; I was advised by a professional dog breeder it’s one of the best.

  21. Familia Hernandez on March 24, 2022 at 8:32 am

    What you think or what would you rate Wholesomes sensitive skin and stomach dry dog food?

  22. Leo FromPortland on March 24, 2022 at 8:33 am

    Do I hear a cockatiel in the background? Very nice.

  23. cassien14 on March 24, 2022 at 8:34 am

    Please review kindful at target 🙏 thanks

  24. Jeannie Martinez on March 24, 2022 at 8:36 am

    What do you think of freshpet dog food? It’s a new wet-ish dog food they sell at costco

  25. deborah lariscy on March 24, 2022 at 8:36 am

    You are awesome ! You are very professional, and I appreciate it. I am using YOUR info to find a new can/wet food for my doggie. I’ve listened to a couple of your presentations, and now I’m here, ready to take you recommendations. Your knowledge is so evident, and I appreciate an independent review with analysis behind it. Your rules help us make a decision on almost any food out there – knowledge is power !! I would like info on whether "stew" or "ground/pate" is preferable. I’m thinking the stew has more broth or maybe a glue. Thank You !!

  26. Arlene Susana Rivera on March 24, 2022 at 8:37 am

    New sub. Love your content. What do you think of the brand Kindfull made by target? Please let me know I have 5 puppies that I plan on feeding them this brand for the rest of their lives. They eat everything the complete line of treats.

  27. Naomie Avila on March 24, 2022 at 8:37 am

    Hi I have a senior dog he is a yorkie/poodle mix, is there a food good for weight gain and joint health that anyone knows about my old man and I would appreciate it 😅

  28. Caleb Ellison on March 24, 2022 at 8:38 am

    Seems like everywhere I look they say zignature is just the top of the line

  29. Ingrid Reyes on March 24, 2022 at 8:39 am

    Is there a review on Natural Balance wet food?

  30. Brandon Reiber on March 24, 2022 at 8:39 am

    Is t true that zignature is shown to cause congestive heart failure?

  31. Loviekinz on March 24, 2022 at 8:40 am

    I’ve used First Mate both "Grain friendly" with the rice and "grain free" which uses potato over rice, and the biggest issue right now is that I can’t get the food. There’s an issue getting it from BC to Ontario and my girls are SO PICKY I am struggling to find an alternative that they will actually eat.

  32. Fia Sugimoto on March 24, 2022 at 8:40 am

    Thankyou so much it’s very helpful ☺️

  33. Alison Faulkner on March 24, 2022 at 8:43 am

    Very helpful. Thank you. Can you do one on senior dogs as well?

  35. Kate Brummitt on March 24, 2022 at 8:47 am

    where is your degree from? I’ve never met a veterinary nutritionist that didn’t rank RC in the top tier of dog foods

  36. R512 on March 24, 2022 at 8:47 am

    What’s your opinion on vegan dog food?

  37. Juan Yepez on March 24, 2022 at 8:48 am

    Yes Canada has a little higher restrictions on food but not on pet food. The USA has a better standards in pet food then in Canada and of course in Europe it’s much better then both.

  38. Logan Kraft on March 24, 2022 at 8:53 am

    Thanks for this, just got some of the canned food from Costco to add as a treat with kibble here and there.

  39. cassandra garcia on March 24, 2022 at 8:59 am

    is guar gum not bad??

  40. Katherine Hawkins on March 24, 2022 at 9:00 am

    This is so frustrating:((((( i cant find a good meal for my pups ones a yorkie and the other is a yorkiepoo 7months and 4months old. I’m so lost I’ve look up the food in the top category but they’re either really a cat food, larger breeds, or plain confusing. I want to see my pups the best foods. And it’s so annoying!!! I feel like no one wants to tell us what to actually feed them on a home diet because the only thing stupid vets know is commercial fooods and idk what nutritionist to trust i feel like everyone has a different opinion…. I’m so lost….

  41. Keith H on March 24, 2022 at 9:01 am

    I would like to see your opinion on the following (wet food) brands: K9 Natural, Tripette, and Evangers

  42. Andrea Hubert on March 24, 2022 at 9:01 am


  43. Michael Dillon on March 24, 2022 at 9:04 am

    My SHIH tzu had a bad experience with purina pro plan. I agree with you.

  44. Blake Burke on March 24, 2022 at 9:06 am

    I use Purina pro plan Sensitive skin and stomach salmon. Where do that stand?

  45. e la cross on March 24, 2022 at 9:06 am

    Are the “unnamed meats” or even the named meats checked for diseases before using in dog food?
    Thanks for your hard work!

  46. Max Garcia on March 24, 2022 at 9:08 am

    I’d love to hear your thoughts on Cat Person food! I recently figured out that my cat has a poultry allergy and finding something that doesn’t sneak poultry in is SO hard. The only one I found at the pet store was Applaws and I fed that for a week before reading the back more carefully and realizing its not fortified with any of the outside nutrients cats need its literally just fish, rice, and fish broth. I just ordered a starter pack of Cat Person because it’s the only limited ingredient food I’ve found that is actually balanced for a full time diet.

  47. Selina Fambro on March 24, 2022 at 9:09 am

    LOL at pee pee poo poo! Thanks girl!

  48. Nyansho on March 24, 2022 at 9:10 am

    I never see the brands I use in these lists :’( …. I do 75 raw and 25 kibble. I used Nutro kibble and looking to try out Whole Foods raw food called Whole Paws. Any opinions on these?

  49. Yissel Rodriguez on March 24, 2022 at 9:10 am

    Would you mind sharing what food do you prefer ( wet and dry and I use both ) to feed my Goldendoodle puppy ??? 🙏🏻♥️ please I’m so lost 😞 I don’t care if it’s more expensive I just want the best .
