I guess that the main thing that bothers me is that they are giving such high marks to foods with excessively high protein levels. Save for extreme canine athletes, most dogs do not need to eat a food with 42% protein and I am worried what effects we will see when some of these dogs are fed such an unbalanced diet over their lifetime.
For instance... AAFCO guidlines require eggs to be called "egg product" regardless of whether or not it is whole egg, but the "editors" of this site don't state that in their reviews.

What is this of which you speak?

How can this be solved?
Simply by adding water. That is all.
