How to Choose the Right Dog Food
Most quality commercial dog foods are highly regulated and often go through rigorous testing by veterinary specialists. While meat makes up the majority of a canine diet, dogs also crave nutrients from vegetables, fruits and grains, which can provide a source of key nutrients, fiber and vitamins.
So, how can you tell if the food you're offering your pet is nutritious and healthy? Rather than just focusing on the primary source of protein such as chicken, beef, lamb or something else, check the back of the label to ensure that the dog food provides the complete nutritional balance your dog needs.
The nutritional label should indicate how much and how often you should feed your dog based on its age and weight. Keep in mind that if your pooch lives a more sedentary lifestyle, you should consider scaling back the portion size, as most label recommendations are typically meant for active canines.
What to Look for in Quality Cat Food
Dogs and cats are fundamentally different in many ways, including their dietary requirements and preferences. While dogs can benefit from a well-rounded, nutritionally diverse diet, cats crave more energy-producing pet foods that are rich in protein.
When selecting the best cat food for your feline, the most important ingredient to look for is a named protein rather than an animal food product that generically lists "meat" as the primary ingredient. Look for proteins like fish, chicken, turkey, lamb or other sources followed by a named fat source such as chicken fat or oil. Avoid cat food containing carbohydrates that may be difficult for felines to digest and could also trigger allergies. Remember, cats are primary carnivores that don't require fillers like corn, wheat or grains in their diets to thrive.
