My guess is it's the ingredients and processing. Some poorer quality dog foods will actually add coloring to look appealing to the owners.

Veggies can change it to some degree, but I don't know how much if the food is processed, and some foods just pay lip service to that stuff in processed foods. When I add a salad mix to my dog's homemade food, it's pretty green in color, which is different than when I add beets or carrots.

thank you, for your help, I feed dr gary's best breed and it was dark now it is lighter, so cheaper dog food keeps the color consistent with coloring. I guess I am okay then I hope.
