Default Is Blue Buffalo better than Authority??

Well, I do know there are better foods out there, but we are feeding Hershey Blue Buffalo, and Whisper Authority, and I am wondering which is better? I believe the Blue Buffalo is better, because it got rid of Hershey Siste on his eye!! Or helped, and the indoors helped that too! But which is better that we are feeding? I know Canidae is better, but I better not push the food thing! What do you guys think? Thank you for reading!

Authority Puppy Harvest Baked
Ingredients
Chicken,Whole Ground Wheat,Chicken Meal,Whole Ground Barley,Canola Oil,Carrots,Salmon Meal,Dried Egg Product,Spinach,Tomatoes

I couldn't find all the ingredients for Authority. For some reason, Petsmart doesn't find it necessary to post ingredients on their website.

I personally think Blue Buffalo is better, but it has menadione which is an ingredient I avoid and can be potentially toxic. I can't find enough info to see if Authority contains it or not.

These are the ingredients lists as posted on mordy's site, but it's from 2003 so it may not be correct anymore.

I would say the Authority is okay, but yeah, the Blue Buffalo is the better food. The only thing that really raises my eyebrow with the BB is "whole garlic cloves" since some people think garlic is bad for dogs.

I remember Mordy saying good things about Avoderm and the company that makes it. www.breederschoice.com
