Some quality dog foods you can google to find their websites. From there you can click on the locator tab to find stores that sell in your area;
You want to stay away foods sold in grocery stores...and that includes treats. When buying treats also look for grain and by product free. When buying toys and chewies look for products made in the USA. Items from Asia and other countries contain chemicals that can harm our pets.
To learn more about what is in dog food may I suggest a book called "food Pets Die For" By Ann N. Martin
FYI, Pro Plan definitely uses rendered mystery meat because there have been tests showing traces of sodium phentobarbital in some of their foods. What does that mean? It means they obtain meat from rendering plants which get their meat from shelters, vets (euthanized animals), farms, butcher shops, etc...probably even roadkill.
