I get confused with canned dog food. I want to use it as an additive to dry kibble and want it to be all meat - no fillers. I have fed NB but I think it has rice in it. What do you look for on the can to make sure it is all meat? thanks.

Have you looked at Orijen or Acana? Not sure they, or any canned will be all real meat, but those would be the closest I would think. Im a raw feeder, so processed foods I don't really know a whole ton about. Been out of that loop for many years.

I really like Ziwipeak canned food. Pricey stuff but is 92% meat and organs. The only added ingredient is a small amount of chickpeas as a binder. Earthborn makes a good one called K95. It is 95% meat. It has a small amount of a few extra ingredients but I find you are not going to find canned food without some kind of add ins because they need something to give the food a uniform texture.

Just joining in as I am trying to figure what portion I would use for my 20 lb terrier mix. She’s not hiactive but goes everywhere with me, she gets commercial raw, for breakfast, and 1/4 cup dry for dinner. Recommendations are way to big for all foods for what she thrives on.

Merricks has 96% - 98% meat only can foods, and Simply Nourish has some as well. I think Nature’s Variety instinct has some.

I'm in Australia, so dont know about most of the wonderful pet foods you have over there. But Wellness 95% was the first thing that popped into my head, we have that one over here. Also, as mentioned ziwipeak is a good one, just for reference we pay the same price for ZP as you guys in the US/Canada!

I very rarely feed canned food, i just add an assortment of meats to my dogs kibble, cooked or raw. I would much prefer to add fresh food, than canned, plus it's a lot cheaper.
