A. My personal favorite brands are Royal Canin and Science Diet. Both companies manufacture their foods to exacting standards in their own facilities, all diets are tested in food trials before being sold to ensure palatability and therapeutic benefits they claim are present. Both make various prescription and non-prescription foods that are formulated to meet your pet's specific needs. If you dog is active, Science Diet Prescription Diet makes a product called j/d, which is a fish based food, very high in omega 3 fatty acids, which are excellent for mental cognizance, keeping joints healthy and skin in excellent shape.
