Note: There is no difference in The List, no matter what price you purchase at. It is offered at various prices to allow for various levels of support to the pet food consumer advocacy work of Susan Thixton and TruthaboutPetFood.com.
This is a digital product delivered via email after purchase. Please read the detailed information below about The List before purchase – no refunds for digital products.
- The List is not an endorsement of any pet food. It is a ‘list’ of pet foods that I personally would trust to feed my own pets based on my knowledge of and experience in the pet food industry. And there is no guarantee that any of these pet foods won't be recalled in the future.
- No pet food company pays to be on The List. I do not receive money from pet food companies – Susan Thixton, TruthaboutPetFood.com and AssociationforTruthinPetFood.com is 100% consumer supported.
- Quality pet food is not cheap. Don’t expect these pet foods to be in the grocery store price range – they are not.
- You won’t find any of these pet foods in Big Box pet food or Big Box retail stores. These pet foods can be purchased from quality independent pet foods stores and directly from the manufacturer.
- Some of the pet foods on the 2018 List are available in Canada, even fewer are available in Europe.
- The List is the same document no matter what price you purchase at.
The 2018 List includes 11 cat foods and 20 dog foods. There is only 1 kibble pet food option, 1 canned pet food option - the rest of the pet foods are raw, cooked, or freeze-dried/dehydrated.
All payments are processed by PayPal, but a PayPal account is not needed. To pay with credit or debit card, click on 'Proceed to Checkout' in the shopping cart and complete information requested.

Using 3 suggested Cat food products from the 2018 list and 1 from the 2017 list. My cats seem to be eating these products, and hopefully will benefit with a healthier diet.
The List is an Xlnt guide

The work has been done for us! Really narrows the field of what to purchase and feed to our pets with the greatest quality and confidence. I use the picks for 50% or more of my pets' diet.

I admire Susan for having the guts to take on the pet food manufacturing industry.
VERY helpful list!

I purchased the 2018 List to help me choose a super healthy dog and cat food. It is so detailed with all the vital information backed by a lot of research that went behind formulating this list. It helped me narrow it down to a company called "Answers."
Of great help...

This was my first time buying the list, as I’ve only just recently learned about it. I wish I had known more about the pet food industry years ago. My last cat, who I thought I was feeding well, ended up with thyroid disease and a horrible skin disease from which the complications of, eventually killed her. It was heartbreaking. I have some reason to believe that the “excellent” quality food I was feeding her may have been a factor in her suffering. I am grateful that someone has done so much work to advocate for our pets and to make a list such as this. I am doing a homemade diet for my new cat plus a bit of supplementing with the listed foods when I’m away. Wonderful information and thank-you so much!

I was hoping to find a comparison of the brands of pet food I can find at a specialized store for pet food or a good pet store. None of the brands recommended were ones I'd ever seen or heard of, and they were all very expensive.

We always want to know the healthiest food out there for our beloved Golden's. This list is the ONLY one we trust to be truthful. Thank you.

I love the 2018 List. It is a great resource, but I feel that it's missing one important component. The list should be limited to pet foods with low carb content. Many of the foods listed have a very high percentage of carbs, which can lead to health issues such as diabetes and cancer. Because of this missing component, I have to do much cross referencing with other resources in order to make an educated decision on the best food to feed my dogs.
