Just as potato chips may be considered a ”filler food” for humans, with few nutritional benefits and being high in fats, additives and preservatives, some commercial dog food can be placed in the same category. If you have ever looked at the ingredient panel on a bag of ”generic” or ”store brand” dog food, you will see that they are highly processed and may contain bi-products and lots of preservatives. Foods of this caliber do little to keep your pet healthy and full of energy. ”Top Rated” or ”Name Brand” dog foods are usually healthier than their cheaper, mass produced counterparts. Your biggest concern should be the health and happiness of your dog. Giving your dog a food that is of good quality, while higher at the check-out stand, may actually save you money in the long run in vet bills. Many people say that dog food is dog food, but they are missing the facts that by choosing top rated dog food, they may actually improve their dog's health.
When treasured family pets get terminally ill and the family decides to euthanize them or when pet dogs die on the operating table, the bereft family often leaves the dead dog with the vet. However, most of these dogs do not get buried or honored in any special way. Just like the fate of the unwanted shelter dogs, euthanized pet dogs at the vet's office often get sent to rendering plants to be turned into dog food. That's right, beloved family pets get turned into dog food. Never leave your pet dog at the vet's office no matter what. Believe it or not, it gets even worse. The barbiturate that is used to euthanize dogs (and other animals included in dog food such as zoo animals), sodium pentobarbital, does not fully break down in the rendering process. In other words, high temperature does not break down sodium pentobarbital. So, when you feed your dog, there is a very high likelihood it is laced with a residue of the chemical used to euthanize dogs!
Just like the potato chip analogy, many commercially processed dog foods are made with fillers such as corn gluten, corn meal, and other such ingredients to help keep production costs down. These ingredients have virtually no nutritional value and will not benefit your dog in any way. Many quality conscious dog food producers will include vegetables, ”human grade” meats, meat proteins, oats or whole grains in their foods. These ingredients have great nutritional value, and will generally keep your dog healthy and active.
