Local pet stores that carry quality dog foods:

Look for a food where the first ingredient is a recognizable meat or
meat meal (Chicken, Lamb meal etc) and avoid foods with corn, any
byproducts, and artificial colors and flavors. Remember that ingredients
are listed in order by weight, so if there are blueberries listed after
salt, they really don't count!
