There is no difference in The List, no matter what price you purchase at.
It is offered at various prices to allow for various levels of support to the pet food consumer advocacy work
of Susan Thixton and TruthaboutPetFood.com.
This is a digital product delivered via email after purchase. Please read the detailed information below about The List before purchase – no refunds for digital products.
For more information on The List, Click Here.
- The List is not an endorsement of any pet food. It is a 'list' of pet foods that I would trust to give to my pets. The pet foods were chosen after detailed information and verification to quality of ingredients was provided. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that any of these pet foods won't be recalled in the future.
- No pet food company pays to be on The List. I do not receive money from pet food companies – Susan Thixton, TruthaboutPetFood.com and AssociationforTruthinPetFood.com is 100% consumer supported.
- You won’t find any of these pet foods in Big Box pet food or Big Box retail stores. These pet foods can be purchased from quality independent pet foods stores and directly from the manufacturer.
- All pet foods on the 2019 List - excluding one - are available only in the US. One pet food is available exclusively in Canada with hopes to export to US in 2019.
The 2019 List includes 19 dog foods and 12 cat foods - a total of 21 different pet food companies. There are 14 cooked-style pet foods, 8 raw-style pet foods, 5 dehydrated or freeze dried-style pet foods, and 1 kibble pet food (some companies make multiple styles of pet food).

Wish I knew More
Posted by jamie on 14th Aug 2019
This is a great list and I am happy the food I use is on it (Answers) I occasionally use primal also. I think the list should include the companies that completed the questionnaire but did not make the list. We have no way of knowing if a company was even considered as it is impossible to send the questionnaire to everyone. Otherwise very informative. thank you

Best Purchase for my dogs I’ve ever made
Posted by Kristi on 2nd Aug 2019
I used Truth About Pet Food’s 2019 listing best dog and cat food to encourage my local pet food store to carry those brands. What a nice break for this busy dog mom who has been cooking the dog’s food herself! GREAT resource and a lifesaving resource for our beloved pets!
Best Resource for Choosing Pet Food

I was shocked when I found out the premium pet food i was using tested high for glyphosates. That is not OK with me. I went into immediate yikes!!! mode and went online to do research. Truth About Pet Foods is an invaluable website and the list was well work the money. I highly recommend it!
Unbiased research based truth

Although there are several best dog food lists out there, Susan's is the most researched and least biased. Us pet parents are so grateful for her
Super hero determination to dig up Truth. Thank you for all your valuable work.

Thanks to the 2019 List I purchased I have found a dog food I believe in. I am hoping it will be approved by my dogs.
Reliable and Always Current
Posted by Kathleen on 10th Jul 2019
After spending numerous hours on my own researching dog food ingredients and looking for the "best food in the market", I discovered this list. It's a list from an experienced and honest advocate for pets - no hidden agenda - just a genuine concern for healthy food for pets. Many people ask me "what is the best dog food" since they know I will do my research and I always point them to this list. Thank you for ALL you do and I appreciate the effort it takes to keep current in this ever changing crazy world of pet food.
Dogs' Lives Matter
Posted by Angela L Eberle on 4th Jul 2019
We have been feeding our Max either home-cooked meals or fresh food from The Farmer's Dog almost since their beginnings. I was very happy to see this food on Susan's list. Up until last December when he was diagnosed with diabetes, he was extremely healthy and very active. To be sure about what he was eating I shared the recipes from The Farmer's Dog with his vet. And the vet was impressed he was eating such good quality food. I did not need to make any changes to his diet. Max has lost some weight due to the diabetes but other than that he remains healthy and very active. I know it has everything to do with the food he eats and the rest he gets every day. Max doesn't know he's extremely spoiled, he thinks every dog lives and is treated just like him!

The information is invaluable! There are brands of pet foods here that I didn't know existed so I am glad to explore these options.
