Canidae produces wet and dry dog food with duck, bison, salmon or lamb protein sources. The company adds HealthPLUS Solutions to every kibble after cooking, which provides Omega 3, Omega 6, probiotics and antioxidants.

Natural Balance produces pet food using scientific and nutritional principles. The food has high quality meats for protein sources, complex carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. The company's limited ingredient diet foods contain limited protein and carbohydrate sources for dogs with health concerns. The Fat Dog formula helps overweight dogs reach a healthy weight. Natural Balance tests all of its dog foods for nine contaminants before distributing it to retailers.

Nutro makes dog food with real animal proteins, and the company traces all ingredients back to the suppliers. The food does not contain any preservatives, artificial flavors or artificial colors. The food is also free from chicken by-product meal, wheat, rice flour, soy protein and corn gluten meal.
