Dog owners and reviewers praised Orijen dry dog food as being grain free and full of meats. The top five ingredients of the food are boneless chicken, chicken meal, chicken liver, whole herring and boneless turkey, all of which are delivered fresh to the factory every day. Orijen also receives high marks in nutrition. Similarly, both Evo and Wellness brand dry dog foods score almost as high. However, critics note that, while grain-free, neither dog food has as much meat as Orijen, and both have been involved in some way with safety recalls due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.

As for canned dog food, dog owners and experts praised Fromm Family as the highest quality canned dog food. The food is high in meat, low in fillers and in many cases, contains meat that is USDA approved, meaning it's the same quality of meat humans eat. Brands such as Newman's Own, Halo Spot's and Weruva score almost as high, but didn't make the top of the list due to having slightly less meat and slightly more water.
