Dog owners treat their dogs as one of the family members. They buy different dog supplies like dog clothes, dog houses and dog toys. Dog food is the top concern. Maybe you have changed your dog’s food many times. Maybe you are going to have a new dog. All of you are facing the same question–what is the right food for your dog?
If there is such dog food that is healthiest and safest, it could perfectly solve your problem. Unfortunately, it is not gonna happen. No one can tell you which food to buy without knowing nothing about your dog, because dogs are individuals like human. So to choose the right dog food, you have to get knowledge of dog food as well as your dog.
The reason why you can’t make a decision isn’t because you have no choices. Literally, it is because you have thousands of choices. As the industry developed rapidly, manufacturers have produced numerous food for dogs of different ages and physical condition.
As I mentioned before, get to know your dog first. Make a list about his health condition, one column for health problems and another for health assets. Observe your dog carefully and fill the list. If he got itchy ears, red skin, bad breath, put them down in the column of health problems. Conversely, clean teeth and fresh breath go to another column. Among the physical condition, the allergy problem should not be neglected, because it largely determines what dog food to choose.
No matter what kind of dog food you are going to choose, complete nutrition always comes the first. A species appropriateness diet contains high protein, high moisture and low starch. Canned food contains 70 to 80 percent of water, which can release organic distress. Corn, wheat, soy, rice are all carbohydrate that are not biologically necessary for dogs to consume.
Products that contain byproducts, cereal fillers, additives, artificial colors and preservatives are considered as low quality dog food. If you don’t have enough time, you can choose a balanced homemade diet with an automatic dog feeder. This diet is nutritionally balanced because you have the full control of the quality. Processed food means that the vitamins, minerals, nutrients are destroyed to some extent.
If you don’t have enough time, you can choose commercial available raw diet. There are countless products on sale. There is no such thing as the best dog food in the world. Again, it depends on your dog.
