    I bought Cody Markus Mühle dry food, but unfortunately he isn't a huge fan of it. I'm not sure if it's because of the texture or if he just doesn't like the taste, so I decided to try a different brand this time. I'm thinking between Nutro Natural Choice Adult Chicken, Josera Optiness Corn-Free (Josera Festival), or Nutrivet Inne Nutritive Dry Dog Food. Josera is the cheapest option, but I'm not sure how good the quality is. Please rank the options I listed and let me know which one is better.

    Thanks, but I already did check there. But they don't have Nutro or Josera listed :(

    Antioxidants.

    At a very quick glance, Nutrivet Inne Nutritive Dry Dog Food is the standout winner. The first three have minimal meat, some of which is 'meat meal' - this doesn't always have the nutrition value of meat, as it can be lost in the processing method. And they have a lot of grain. The Nutrivet one has a lot of meat (highest % ingredients are listed first), then veg and various natural additives (like seaweed) and no grain.

    Wow thank you so much for the help! :) I'm still learning about dog food, so I wasn't sure. I didn't realize that meat meal was bad or that too many grains aren't good.

    Meat meal can be OK - the All About Dog Food site arealhuman mentioned has a run-down on all sorts of ingredients, including meal.

    Grains tend to be just cheap filler, and some dogs can be intolerant of them. The more grain, the more poo your dog is likely to produce. Grain-free, high-quality foods, although they may be more expensive, but often not as expensive as they seem at first glance as you don't need to feed so much. (Though for my dog this was a disadvantage as he refused to believe that the small bowlful was a decent meal - he's raw fed now, which is much more bulky due to its bone & water content.)
