Feather meal is mentioned in the current AADF opinion poll. I don't know how many dog foods are out there that uses feather meal, Royal Canin have their ANALLERGENIC product which contains feather hydrolysate with low molecular weight (source of L amino acids and oligopeptides) which is available in the UK.
An article from Dr Becker http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2013/07/17/feather-meal.aspx

Dog food studies seem to be few and far between however recently a dog food study, Vegetarian versus Meat-Based Diets for Companion Animals was published.

Raw feeding / Long Living Pets Research Project

I thought this raw dog food, Long Living Pets Research Project (USA) was worth sharing. The goal is to follow dogs and cats over a duration of 30 years on a raw diet. This is private research by a non medical professional. A number of UK dogs have joined the project.
