So what exactly makes good quality dog food?

For the longest time I have read and read information about dog food quality, no corn, raw diets, read about the expensive brands you can't find in stores, etc. All this stuff about how the general vet recommended brands are shitty and outdated.

And yet since I've worked as a vet tech the last two years, the people who buy those higher quality dog foods always seem to have the most unhealthy dogs. Diarrhea, vomiting, skin troubles, rotten/falling out teeth whatever.

The healthiest dogs always seem to be on some middle range quality food. The cheap shit makes dogs fat but the expensive ones really seem to fuck with a lot of the dogs and I don't quite know why.

What's with this? It's confusing to hear both sides--our vet who recommends what the forum folks consider shit and the people I've spoken to on the forums who are giving their dogs what the vets consider shit... But then seeing proof from both sides.

I've always just been a reptile person myself. Not quite as confusing when it comes to diets if they just eat rats or insects right? I don't get the whole dog food thing.

What do you call high quality?

I've been working as a vet nurse for about 5 years and I've experienced the exact opposite of your situation. Maybe the dogs you know are just generally unhealthy and it has nothing to do with diet. Though the vets in my practice like to work with people on diets and help them to create something balanced or recommend a food that's actually appropriate for the dog, rather than just naming the brand of the day.

I know most vets won't get behind raw diets because they don't want lazy owners thinking it's OK to feed their dog nothing but ground beef forever. It's a common occurrence in my practice after hearing about the raw diet fad and they get shocked when they find out how harmful it can be. Then usually switch to decent kibble since appropriate raw diets can be complex and expensive if you don't know what you're doing.

Anything grain free basically. All the dogs eating things like wellness, raw, or other similar brands I always see advertised. Our vet claims they are all too rich for dogs or some shit like that, I don't know. Our vet ends up switching them over to iams or whatever and they magically get better. I don't get it.
