The 5 Most Popular Choices For A Natural Dog Food Diet

A natural dog food diet is becoming a popular choice for dog owners. As a dog owner, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the vast array of dog food products on the market. While some dog owners feel that expensive price tags must mean higher quality, others think stylish, high-end ingredients are the way to go. Still others swear by organic and natural foods for their pet. But, much like human beings, the physiological makeup of every dog breed is different. That is why some dog foods work incredibly well for only specific breeds, while others work uniformly well for a greater variety of breeds.

Here are 5 of the most popular natural dog foods, according to critic and user ratings. Because they are comparable in quality and ratings, they are listed in random order.

Science Diet

One could consider Science Diet the pioneer when it comes to a natural dog food diet. It has been around for nearly half a century, and has remained strong as people have come to know more about the effect of organic and natural food on canine physiological and digestive functions. Some of the most popular Science Diet products are:

  • Canine Senior - selling at about $9 for 5 pounds
  • Large Breed Adult product - around $22 for 20 pounds
  • The Canine Puppy Diet, available either dry ($9 per 5 pound bag) or canned (12 cans for $20).

Nutro is slowly and steadily gaining popularity with people who want to provide their pet with a natural dog food diet, especially (but not exclusively) owners of larger breed dogs. Some of the most popular choices in Nutro are:
