Cesar Dog Food is not a high-quality product, but it could be worse. Cesar Canine Cuisine Pet Foods is owned by Mars Petcare and all of their foods are made in company owned facilities based in the U.S. Although a number of the formulas have an excellent protein to start off the ingredient list (e.g. chicken and beef), the foods actually contain a large portion of protein by-products. This usually means that they are the leftovers from slaughterhouses and are not fit for human consumption.
So, Cesar starts off really well on the ingredients and then quickly ruins it by including substandard ingredients. Many of the foods also have artificially added color, which just does not make any sense. Really, the dog does not care about the color of the food. So because of these reasons, we have given it the low rating of one bone.
Most customer dog food reviews about Cesar dog food are negative. The inclusion of allergens in many of Cesar’s dog food formulas was a commonly cited negative factor among many dog owners. Also, Mars has a reputation for producing low-quality pet food formulas, which made many consumers think twice about purchasing Cesar dog food.
Cesar brand dog food formulas are mostly marketed towards small dog breeds, or toy dog breeds. One of the commercial jingles for Cesar dog food is, “Now every dog wants to be a Cesar dog!”. Cesar dog food should not be confused with Cesar Millan dog food. Here is a bit more information about Cesar dog food.
