This thread is for flowers members to request for brands/varieties of kibble to be graded, and any other questions they might have for kibble they're considering (to feed hungry their fluffs fluff).

"GRADES" of brands/varieties that has already been calculated, can be viewed book here in this thread.

I thought we had already graded Royal Canin Mini Adult, but I can't find it thinking

Maybe I just did it myself at home or something shrug

In any case, perhaps that would be a good candidate to get us going blush

Hi there

I was at the vet ( the bald one, not the  Love Eyes one   Mad) with Mitsy for a check up on Saturday and she is 8lbs in weight & 25 weeks old.

The vet asked me to start moving her from puppy  Pacifier to junior dog food. 

I feed her "James Wellbeloved" - http://www.wellbeloved.com 

It is made by one of the few companies in the UK that don't test on animals.

Royal Canin, Purina & Iams all do and it's a personal decision that I just won't give them my money no matter how good they claim to be  No

She likes all the flavours but the White Fish is her favourite hungry and it is the White Fish Junior Performance I have bought to start moving her to gradually.


Here we go...................

Ocean White Fish & Rice Kibble
Complete dog food

A hypo-allergenic dog food, beneficial for dogs with particular nutritional intolerances, and also a healthy tasty natural diet.

INGREDIENTS AND ANALYSIS

Junior/Performance

Ingredients: Rice, Ocean White Fish Meal, Barley, Potato Protein, Whole Linseed, Olive Oil, Vegetable Gravy, Peas, Fish Oil, Alfalfa, Natural Seaweed, Sodium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, D,L-methionine, Lysine Hydrochloride, Threonine, Zinc Methionate.

Ozzie  fluff has been thriving on Performatrin Ultra Adult, Hormon-free Lamb and Brown Rice Formula Dog Food for the past year. www.performatrinultra.com
Using the grading system here, I have scored it
101 points, which would be A  clapping
Is there somewhere that I can post the ingredients and scoring details?

wave Lainey, I've graded BURNS for you (Thanks for the reminder blush).

I found BURNS website, and saw that the ingredients list (on their website) has no chicken fat, whereas yours (ie. your post) has. Not that it matters original.  If chicken fat (is listed as an ingredient on your kibble packet and) is taken into account, the score will be 100 thumbsup.

And while theres's no dairy products, wheat, soya or beef in all their formulas (ingredients which may cause some food allergies according to their website), note that brown rice makes up three-fifths of the bag, while fish is only one-fifth (the only meat protein in there) .  Again, not that it's bad or matters a whole lot blush.... just know that Mitsy is consuming more rice than fish, with each mouthful/serving.  It's ideal when the 1st (& 2nd) ingredient(s) are meats... but then again, a lot of manufacturers have 2 or more grains in the formula (eg: brown rice, rice, oats) which in turn may add up to more than the 1st listed meat ingredient.  You get what I'm saying blush.

wave Carol, the place/thread where scores are kept is here. original

I looked at the Lamb & Brown Rice formula and must say the ingredients list see really looks impressive thumbsup.  I graded it and got a score of 109 thumbsup (different from yours... not that it matters blush).

Note: Everything after Brewers Dried Yeast are vitamins & minerals, and have no 'impact' (so to speak) on the score.  All manufacturers add these (usually same) vitamins & minerals because most (if not all) vitamins & minerals are "lost" during the extrusion process (ie. during the 'manufacture' of the kibble).

Thank you, Del!  thumbup You rock.
As I look over the list you used (from their website, I presume?), and compare it to the bag, they are identical. I think where I missed points is that on your list the probiotic ingredients are indicated, and on the bag there is no indication. (and I don't know what is probiotic and what isn't  Laughing) That's 3 points anyway.  thumbup In any case, Ozzie loves his kibble  hungry

Del, I actually asked my vet about this at the weekend and as I give Mitsy a steak or salmon twice a week he thought it was a good thing and balances out well. She had Venison for the first time on Sunday  hungry

 Thank You for helping us out. I think Burns is the best UK option but if anyone knows differently, please let me know.

I checked and it graded 105 which is good an A. Their web site says no artificial colors or flavors. It doesn't mention it being organic, or baked or having probiotics and it still rated well.
