Pros & Cons


  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Easy to find
  • Made in the U.S.


  • Corn is sometimes first ingredient
  • Contains meat byproducts

Bottom Line

Pedigree Pet Food products are easy to find and competitively priced. Many of the formulas feature corn as the first ingredient and include meat by-products. It’s not the best, but it’s probably not the worst either.

We used the soft food packets to top off normal dry food. When there was a shortage of other brands. My Labrador (older but, fine) had sudden major issues. No one could figure it out after major vet bills. Unexplainable. She passed at home suddenly. Now my 2 year old lab is having issues. With the same packet of chicken flavor. That’s the only common denominator. Avoid!

People have always said Pedigree is the best, it must be because of the name, I'm keeping a strict eye on my dogs now because I am aware of some bad things, For several months feeding my dogs was taking longer than usual because when you open the cans and take the first spoonful it is nothing but gel, I think a little is probably ok but when you are ending up with a quarter can after taking it out the dogs are not getting enough food and I'm reading some bad nutrition facts about this jelly. I lost my beloved bulldog last year to cancer in his kidneys and now I'm worried that this may be tied in, I'm taking my dogs off of it, there's too many good food out there to chance it, I would love to post pics of this gel, but nowhere to put it and of course Pedigree said send them serial numbers etc but it's in every can I buy, they say it's where they cook the food in the can and the gel seals it. Very Nasty.

    I fed Pedigree dog food to my dog (an Australian Kelpie) from the time he was a puppy until he passed away at age 17. He remaind in good health. I think it was a very good product at reasonable price.

    I have a picky German Shepherd and she does not like kibble. It costs us approx $140 a month (based on 2 of the large cans) which is approx only $20 more than we were spending on Blue Buffalo kibble each month. I like that I can add rice or vegetables to it and it mixes well. She has never had any stomach issues with this food.

    Our dog adopted our family. We have fed her the Pedigree brand since we have had her. She is healthy and doesn't turn up her nose at her food and always finishes it. As soon as she hears one of us getting her food, she comes running. Pedigree is good for her and she is always satisfied and is not overweight so we will keep her on Pedigree. We did try Gravy Train early on and she doesn't like it.

    I would never ever recommend this dog food to anyone. I just found a fossilized mouse with dried dog food stuck all over it in the bag when I went to pour my dog’s food into the dish. The only reason I noticed it was because one of the pieces of food looked like it was moldy or something and I was just going to throw the whole bag away and chalk it up as another bad batch of dog food from them, but when I went to look closer the moldy piece was a freaking mouse face. I’ve never been so horrified in my life.

    No wonder my dog wasn’t interested in eating it unless I mixed it with something else like gravy or something. His stomach had been messed up since I started him on this food and he had weird poops, they were watery and black or red. DO NOT FEED THIS CRAP FOOD TO YOUR DOG. It will make them sick. Especially if they have dead mice in the mix. Who knows whether there’s mouse poop in the food along with whatever other ingredients are in it.

    I've been feeding my 8-yr old German Shepherd 2 spoonfuls of Choice Cuts in Gravy along with her Nutrish kibble and Dinovite. Over last 2 months she would refuse to eat about every 3rd day. She was listless, slept a lot and had terrible gas and stomach growling. Obviously in pain. Her stool frequently had an ugly pink and white slime. I stopped the Pedigree. The symptoms went away. She immediately regained her appetite, her energy and good humor. No more gas and stomach growling, normal regular stool, and no indications of pain or discomfort. The Pedigree was obviously making her sick. NO MORE PEDIGREE!

    We have been using the Pedigree brand for years. The cans have been OK...But the Pouches have been a problem lately. I have opened several of the Pouches in the Variety pack and they are rancid! I purchased 2 boxes at Pet Smart, opened them and they were like jelly, very strong foul smell. I opened each flavor, they were all the same. Then I purchased 4 - 18 pouch variety pack from Amazon. Took Forever to get here. In the meantime my wife bought a box at Albertsons and they were the same. Like a slimy grease coated the contents. So far one of the boxes was OK from Amazon. There is something seriously wrong here. What is going on!??

    I've been feeding my dog Pedigree, dry for a year and a half.. No issue. I've tried several cans of wet food as a topper... He started having explosive diarrhea for 3 days!!! I finally figured out today, it was the Chopped Ground Dinner and threw it away. I see several people having this issue.. Why isn't it recalled?? I think the media or something needs to be involved because if it's affecting more pups, something needs to be done.

    I feed this dog food to my dog for over the past 15 years and both of my babies have gotten sick off of this brand of dog food I just recently lost my male baby and after viewing all the other complaints I truly believe it was the dog food cause my girl dog has lost a lot of weight in the past two years and before my boy passed away he was in real good health and all of a sudden my baby lost all of his weight and you could see his ribs. Couldn’t hardly walk or nothing. This company needs to be shut down for good if it’s killing our babies. Let do something to get this company shut down.
