Rate Your Dog's Food

Hello all! LTNS!! I've been converting people from crappy dog food to awesome dog food but I need 2 things to help me in my quest..lol

1.) I need the "Rate Your Dog's Food" scale that you all gave me last year. I've searched my own threads for it and can't find it.

2.) I also need the list of horrible dog foods that are already rated where Bil Jac is last on the list and has the worst score of "69", I believe.

Someone is actually out there, with an albino Rottweiller, telling my co-worker that "Bil Jac is the best dog food and it's all natural." I have never laughed so hard in my life!! That is truly, one misinformed human being.
So, I've been printing my tail off for the past hour, of all the information I can find on this board about the best dog food to feed, what the ingredients REALY are, like animal digest, YUCK! And all kinds of other stuff to give this guy. I just need those 2 things I'm asking for. Can anyone pull up that info?

Thanks,
Mahealani

Here is a good link to educate this person on pet nutrition:

Not sure if this is similar to the one you're looking for, but it gives the general idea at least:

Also, here's another site with lots of helpful info on what ingredients mean (I'm guessing you might have already seen this site if you've been searching):

Bil Jac Select

Chicken By-Products (Organs Only including chicken liver), Chicken, Corn, Chicken By-Product Meal, Dried Beet Pulp, Brewers Dried Yeast, Cane Molasses, Egg Product, Salt, Sodium Propionate (a preservative), DL-Methionine, L-Lysine, Vitamin A Acetate, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin E Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Niacin, Biotin, Choline Chloride, Folic Acid, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B6), Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Menaione, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Manganous Oxide, Inositol, BHA (a preservative), Ferrous Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Cobalt Carbonate, Potassium Iodine, Sodium Selenite.

It's pretty gross. Rest of them are similar. I've heard people rave on the frozen stuff, but it leaves a lot to be desired too.

Bil Jac is the only food I know of that sticks sugar randomly in their food, and pretty high up the list. That alone often gets people thinking about new food.
