Dogs, just like everyone else, have specific nutritional needs and they need proper vitamins and minerals every day. Low quality ingredients, excessive chemical additives, and poor labelling standards all result in problems for your companion pet, from skin allergies to cancer. Commercial pet foods and some pet food ingredients have been implicated in a number of diseases in companion animals. One potential problem with commercial pet food is pesticide residues, antibiotics, and mould contained in pet food ingredients and manufacturers will not disclose very much information about the sources of ingredients, how they are processed, their quality control standards, or, in some cases, even where the food is made. Doesn't that make you have some doubt as to how trustworthy a company is if it cannot even tell you those things? It makes me very doubtful!
Before purchasing a commercial dog food, check the label carefully. Most commercial food is manufactured with bi-products and poor quality meats. They may even be made with highly processed meats and organs from diseased sources. Processors believe that by heating the foods to extremely high temperatures will kill all the bad things in the food. All this typically ensures is that any nutrients that may have been found in other ingredients is cooked out. One of the best things to look for in a dog food is that it is made from ”human grade” meat ingredients. Simply put, ”human grade” meat used in the dog food could have been served to someone in a restaurant. Most ”cheaper” commercial foods, and some of the more expensive ones, do not use meat that was meant for human consumption. If you wouldn't eat it, why feed it to your best friend?
So what is the best dog food? Dog food that is meat based rather than grain based. That is the secret to your dog's optimum health. Low quality dog foods will almost always be grain based and the healthier, higher quality dog foods will be meat, poultry or fish. You'll pay more for meat based dog foods, but the higher the price, the higher the quality; the higher the quality of the ingredients, the greater the nutritional value.
