How you feed your dog is important for optimum health and for allowing a longer life span. Many owners choose Authority Dog Food for its quality ingredients. Authority dry and canned formulas offer intense protein content with other important vitamins and minerals. Some of the ingredients in these formulas can not be found in other brands. Choosing a wholesome, well balanced formula is vital for your dogs.
While chicken and beef are first listed on product ingredient lists, keep in mind these ingredients when fresh contain mostly water. Once cooked, these meats cannot add the nutrient content like dried meat meal versions.
The ingredients in Authority however, is dried chicken meal which is actually higher levels of protein than the fresh ingredient. Brown rice and corn are ingredients added as fillers. However, brown rice does contain complex carbohydrates. The addition of corn gluten meal is most likely a strict filler due to its loss of nutrients during processing.
Authority Dog Food, the in-store brand of PetSmart, is a decent brand and reasonably priced. The brand has high quality proteins as the first ingredients, and a nice amount of whole grains and vegetables. What makes Authority really stand out though, is that it does not include any by-products at all. The use of quality ingredients, variety of foods for dogs with different needs, plus the reasonable price, make this a 4 star rating.
Owners have great things to say about both dry and canned varieties of Authority dog foods. Canned varieties are affordable and dogs love the flavor. The same is also true of dry formulas as well. Feeding dry diet is more convenient for many dog owners, so this is certainly great news. Many owners have reported positive improvements in their dog’s coat and energy levels after being on a diet of this brand food.
Beet pulp and protein sources in this brand are a couple of the ingredients that owners are pleased to see. While these are great, some people are glad to see rice in the ingredients. More rice in addition to corn ingredients is a lot better than feeding a brand with simply corn as a filler. For the price, Authority hits the mark for owners and their canine friends.
Other Reviews of Authority dog food by other dog owners are mostly positive. They are impressed with the quality for such a reasonable price. Many of them seem to have switched from the higher-priced food because of the cost, and are very pleased with the formula. We have not heard many complaints.

h1 Authority Allergies
Since Authority’s dog food formulas contain both corn and corn gluten meal, they may contribute to allergic reactions in some dogs. Also, many formulas contain eggs, which can occasionally cause gastrointestinal upset in some dogs. If your dog has an allergy that is protein-specific, it’s important that you read the ingredients of a formula before feeding it to your dog.
