Science Diet is okay. It is much better than Pedigree or Purina! If your dog is fine eating it, don't worry. Just make sure you purchase it from a reputable store, in case there is ever a recall, you will be assured that the store will remove all the defective food.
I use Blue Buffalo dog food. It is holistic, has the nutrients cold pressed before adding to the baked kibble to preserve the potency of the nutrients, has limited suppliers for their ingredients, checks before, during and after the manufacturing process for safety and health of the product, and does not contain soy, wheat or corn (most common causes of allergies in dogs and cats), and does not contain by products or additives or preservatives.

Good for your vet! Wet food is much better for cats. It should say on the food how much to feed.
Examples of low quality foods to avoid: Anything you can find in a grocery store will be low end, Purina, Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Royal Canin, Whiskas, Fancy Feast, Friskies, Meow Mix.
Examples of high quality foods to look for: Innova, Wellness, Solid Gold, Felidae, Fromm, Merrick, GO Natural, Nature's Variety, Nature's Logic.
Canidae is a really good dog food that I think you should switch to. See when I look for a dog food, I look for the first ingrediant being meat or meat meal, no fillers, no sweeteners like sugar or corn syrup in it, and no artificial flavorings. Currently, I feed my dog the Costco brand, Kirkland.
Some really crappy foods are Royal Canin, Iams, Purina, Pedigree, Eukanuba, Science Diet, Nutro Max, Ceaser, Innova, and Puppy Chow. They all contain fillers and artificial flavors and all that bad stuff that you should try to avoid.

Don't go with the foods available at the grocery store, they are high in carbs and low in protein, when buying food check the ingredients the first ones listed should be meat products then the other stuff like wheat and grain.
I also notice when i was feeding my dogs the grocery brands
their teeth where turning brown and their numbers stunk!
Try NUTRIENCE avaliable at pet stores.

wow apparently everyone is anti-science diet here, lol!
I'm in thj emilitary, I work as a vet tech. one of our main priorities is veteriniray care of the military working dogs...
Almost all of the working dog agencies (Military, TSA, FPS... the list goes on) feed Science Diet and those dogs are in great health.
A few have food allergies (probably oly 4 out of the 50+ we see) and they are on a different type of food.
Also, a couple dogs don't like the science diet, so they are on Eukanuba.
I feed my dog Eukanuba and I am very happy with it. He's always hungry (even though I feed his cute chunky face enough!) so I complement it with green beans.
Anyway these dogs are worth more to the government than ME, and they are all the picture of health.
My vet also reccomends Royal Canin.

I do not just use kibble...once a month I make my own "mush", place it in freezer bags and take out as needed...i place the "mush" of my kibble...I kind of use the kibble as we would a starch...like potatoes or rice...I've been doing this for many years and so far it has worked great with all of my dogs...
I will use different types of kibble like:
Chicken Soup Puppy
to name a few...but as I said...i don't use just kibble...it works for us...maybe not others....

Raw, prey model.
I believe dogs are carnivores, and feed them accordingly.
I used to feed "premium" kibble and canned foods, but found that I was constantly looking for a "good" variety, and not able to find any that I thought met that bill.
