Hey there! When looking for a dry diet, you should look at the ingredient list and nutritional analysis. Depending on where you live, you may have access to various bands of food, so I generally discourage offering specific brands and limiting you. Look for foods with the first three to five listed as specific real meat ingredients: “chicken” “salmon” “turkey” “meals” etc. ingredients are listed by volume, so the higher up on the list, the more you’ll get of that ingredients. When you are looking at diets, the front of each bag should say if it’s grain free or not. Start with those that are; if you can’t find one to your satisfaction, go to ones with grain. Protein content should be about 30-35% and fat no more than 15-20%. Also look for added fiber!
Hope this helps 🙂
