Pet health depends on the care that lies on the shoulders of its owner. Nutrition is one of the main links of this strong chain. Therefore, if you want to see your pet strong and active, you need to properly make up its diet.
The easiest way is to buy specialized food, where absolutely everything has already been taken into account: energy value, BJU, vitamins, microelements. It remains only to make a choice among the abundance of bright packages. We invite you to familiarize yourself with a super premium dog food rating. The list is based on feedback from consumers and dog handlers.
The list opens with an American brand that develops not just high quality food, but useful, or, as it is called professionals, holistic. The manufacturer is leading both through the methods of natural preservation, and through the use of fatty acids necessary for each organism, including an animal, and in the frequent inclusion of substances that are required for joints and cartilage. This is especially true for beagles, sledding and sports dogs. Meat, which is the central component, is not frozen until processed. At the same time, there is an important nuance: Nutra Gold feeds have high energy value, therefore, the pet serving volume should be less than with other feeds. Thanks to these moments, the brand is loved by consumers and dog handlers.
- Inna: We breed dogs and husbands for more than 10 years, for the last 4 years we have been buying holistic and super-premium food for them. In the latter category, I like Nutra Gold Pro Breeder. Unlike Bosch, which caused severe diarrhea in pets, Nutra Gold turned out to be perfect in everything: the size of the pieces-elements, the cost, the composition, the reaction of the dogs.
Silver is held by the German brand, which produces both dry food and canned food. All products are tested by the EU, there is a special line of hypoallergenic feed, targeting animals with a sensitive digestive system. The protein component in them is based on lamb and / or fish meat. It is very easy to choose the ideal variant: it is enough to choose between groups for adult dogs, puppies and juniors, a sensitive organism, or canned food. Also present are feeds for pregnant and lactating bitches, grainless, separated by pet's age, its activity, degree of fastidiousness to food.
- Maxim: He translated the dog from natural food to dry food, although he resisted this thought for a long time. But at some point it became impossible to spend a few hours on cooking. On the advice of a specialist, I chose Belcando for dogs with moderate activity. Surprisingly, the dog's food came up better than natural food: the wool became thicker, the dog's activity increased, and the chair improved.
Another manufacturer from Germany, but in his address vague reviews are more common than in the address of Belcando. Nevertheless, Bosch is in high demand among ordinary consumers and professionals, possesses EU certificates confirming its quality, does not have any “empty” additives, dyes, preservatives and flavor enhancers. It is possible to select individual nutrition by weight, age and breed of dog, as well as for nursing females, puppies. There are lines aimed at animals that are prone to rapid weight gain, allergies, sports and service dogs. It is noteworthy that Bosch produces small delicacies that can be used during training. According to dog handlers, negative reviews on brand products are usually due to improper selection of food.
- Valentina: At first they fed their dog Bosch Junior Maxi, when the veterinarian advised to pay attention to the strengthening of his musculoskeletal tissue due to his fragile bones. They switched from natural food very easily, the dog took the "chemistry" well, and there were no problems with digestion either. As he grew older, they changed food to Adult Menue, also from Bosch. The joints are fine, health and activity too. Recommended!
The Canadian manufacturer offers high-quality cat and dog food, allowing you to choose food according to individual criteria, up to and including pet sterilization. The same manufacturer can pay attention to the brand Pronature Holistic, made in accordance with the requirements of a healthy natural food. In the feed from 1st Choice there is no soy, wheat, offal and corn, no preservatives. Specially developed type of granules allows you to maintain the strength of teeth and clean them in the process of eating food. The quality of the product is confirmed by the American Association for Quality Control.
- Regina: For her baby chihuahua, she bought 1st Choice Puppy Toy, targeting small breed dogs. I immediately take a large package of 7 kg, it comes out quite a budget, only 2600-2700 rubles. The composition is rich in vitamins, the meat component is a chicken. The dog really likes it, although before that they took Artemis - refused to eat at all.
The only English brand in this rating that has been praised by dog handlers. Initially, its products were distributed only to veterinary clinics. The feeds are not low cost, even in comparison with the rest of the representatives of the super premium segment, but this is explained by the composition and high quality of the products. The main meat ingredient is chicken meat, lamb may be present, some types of fish - for example, salmon, white oceanic. From cereal products-pic. The assortment includes dry and canned food, nutritional options for elderly pets and those prone to weight gain, adults and puppies, crunchy - incentive delicacy. It is noteworthy that consumers more often leave feedback on cat food.
- Victor: The Arden Grange dog especially liked the Crunchy bites - large bones with chicken, which I used in the process of training. I note that the product has a convenient package that you can take with you: a zip-package, you can open and close it indefinitely. From conventional feeds I buy a seedless Sensitive: an allergic dog went perfectly.
Another American manufacturer that offers 2 lines - Holistic natural feed and super premium. The products are based on natural meat, without substitutes, in the Holistic block there is food for allergic dogs with duck meat. The range, in comparison with what other companies offer, is scarce, but positive feedback from dog handlers and consumers makes it clear that even so, animals take food well. Let advanced selection on the large list of criteria impossible.
- Karina: The cats of the Eagle Pack are very fond of my cats, so when a puppy appeared in the house, they also decided to try this particular brand for him. First took Large&Giant Puppy, for the smallest, up to 4 months, but the puppy's eyes began to water and we thought about allergies. Changed to Puppy Health with anchovies and sardines - it went better. We have been feeding for 3 weeks, until the adverse reactions have been noticed.
The last place in the ranking, but not signifying poor quality, went to the Italian manufacturer. The brand is quite young, there is only 16 years on the market (in comparison with the age of other companies, it is completely young), but it diverges well in the European market. Checking the quality of the goods is carried out at all stages of its manufacture, as with the British, the feed does not pass tests on animals. For dogs, you can choose dry food from the lines of Holistic and Alternative, or purchase one of the many canned options - there are as many as 6 subcategories. There are also delicacies. Food allows you to take into account all the individual characteristics of the animal.
- Tatyana: Finally I found an excellent feed without a chicken for an adult dog! Tired of being shoved everywhere by a bird, to which my pet has a strong allergy. Of all the expensive brands, only Almo Nature was found in the city. Bought an option for an adult animal, although my only six months. Adjusted the diet, slightly deviating from the recommendations on age (due to age) - no negative symptoms. Dog cheerful, cheerful.
In conclusion, we note that the super-premium class feed, as expected, has a high cost, but it is due to the fact that their composition is based on natural ingredients and additional macro- and microelements. Meat in such feeds is at least 40%. In addition, the product can be selected on the basis of the individual characteristics of the dog, reducing the likelihood of situations when he did not fit the animal.
