The 2018 List


Product Description

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

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, and is 100% consumer supported.
  • Quality pet food is not cheap. Don’t expect these pet foods to be in the grocery store price rangethey 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 10 cat foods and 19 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.

  1. Informative 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2018

    I am glad I bought this list, because it helped me decide on a food for my dogs. With so many options I didn't know what to pick. It is hard to tell what is safe to feed your pets these days.

  2. The List 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th May 2018

    Too many raw and dehydrated foods and not enough kibble. Not everyone has space to store these foods, and Yes, if I win the lottery, I could afford some of them!
    They also do not list the fat content on their individual websites. However, this will not stop me from getting the list as I totally trust Susan Thixton's opinions.

    What outstanding information and presentation! This is a must-have for every pet owner. It is page after illustrated page of the best foods you can feed your beloved pets. With it comes the peace of mind you get, knowing you can trust what Susan recommends. It is not expensive, but it is, priceless.

    Enjoyed reading the reviews; only wish there were more on here, but perhaps there will be in the future.

  5. Finally Safe Pet Food 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Apr 2018

    I'm so glad I bought your list. I was already using freeze dried food you recommended (Primal), and have now switched to Open Farm Kibbles. I also called the company whose canned food I use (Fromm's) & was able to ask the relevant questions based on your criteria. As for the layout of your list, I would like to see a list of (& hyperlinks for) all manufacturers & products at the top of your list, as my computer goes crazy when I try to scroll down the side of the list. Thank you for a great list, well worth the price.

    Every dog owner should have this information!

  7. Finally found a great pet food review!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Apr 2018

    This is the best review on pet food, I have ever found!
    I've been searching everywhere, for an honest review, for the best available food for my dog and cat. This is it.
    I already bought some of the foods Susan recommends, and they are terrific.
    All pet owners, who care about their pets should buy these foods. We feed them such junk and then worry about vet bills, when their health falters. I would rather pay a little more for their food, and have a healthy, happy , long-lived, loving pet.
    This list is terrific!!!
    My pets and I thank you!!!!

  8. different cat foods 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2018

    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.

  9. The List is an Xlnt guide 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2018

    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.
