Ultimately the use of common sense from all of us, the consumer is necessary. Learn about the company philosophies, policies and practices that produce the food for our pets. Questions you should ask yourself – Does the company use local food, are they a family owned company, is the food GMO free, antibiotic free, preservative free, additive free, corn and wheat free. Do they use chelated minerals, natural preservatives, human grade manufacturing facilities, use organic and free range farming etc.

Perfect choice for those who don’t have time to make their own dog food at home. All the benefits, but none of the work.
There are several excellent choices of commercial raw, many of which use certified organic and local ingredients only. (Nothing from China)
Perfect for dogs with allergies or fussy eaters.
ORGANIC DOG FOOD IS ANOTHER GOOD HEALTHY CHOICE
NATURAL DOG FOOD – CAUTION – “NATURAL DOES NOT ALWAYS = GOOD”
Remember to read and check the labels of any food labelled “all natural” as this term is used in a lot of dog food products that still contain chemicals, preservatives and other artificial ingredients.:
GROCERY STORE KIBBLE – NOT RECOMMENDED!!!
Try to avoid if possible: Grocery Store kibble, no name kibble, and the cheaper brands of dog food contain fillers and preservative. Any dog food with corn on the ingredient list should be avoided:
Finally, the worst of all would be plain old table scraps. Yes, I know a lot of people say this is how it was always done before the advent of commercial food, but scraps ARE NOT HEALTHY, and should be avoided.
NOTE: ***Just throwing together meat and some leftovers is not a healthy or nutritious diet, and could actually be extremely harmful.
There are many dog food recipe cookbooks available today with proper proportions, nutrients and feeding amounts for an extremely healthy dog food diet.
*ALSO NOTE: →TOXIC food that could kill your dog
Read, Review and Be Aware of what dog food ingredients should and should not be present in today’s commercial dog foods, and making an educated choice is imperative to giving your companion the best chance for a longer, healthier life.
Eliminate processed foods on a daily basis, as the chemicals, preservatives, additives, by-products, and junk from the rendering process are all known to be the cause of increased pet diseases and allergies.
Don’t fall for what the big commercial companies have brainwashed us into believing – that your companion animal must eat the same dry chemical filled meal day in and day out for their entire lives – NOT TRUE, NOT NECESSARY AND NOT HEALTHY! Rotation and variety are best!
I am not a vet or animal nutritionist, so always check with your own authority with any questions or problems. This is just a general starting guide for anyone interested in upgrading their pet’s diet.
