We love our dogs indefinitely and they are just like our own family members and we name them as our furry babies aka furbabies. Agree? Well, majority do and as such, giving them the best is what most of us will do. From providing them a conducive place to stay, to their food and their very well being.
You are what you eat and this rings true for our furbabies as well. So, furry moms and pas, how do you choose your kibbles?
- Go straight to the brand that you have been feeding furbaby since day one? OR
- Go straight to the staff for recommendation? OR
- Go to the promotion and best-deal section and check out the prices?
|Do not be overwhelmed by the magnanimous displays of products on shelves of any pet retails shops. You just have to make some time in the shop and read the bags. Yes, READ the bags and not just reading those fancy fonts and creative tag lines but turn the bag around and READ the INGREDIENTS instead.You do not need to be an expert to know how to read the ingredients just remember the few important key words.
1 Search for AAFCO – Association of American Feed Control Officials which is a non-profit organization that sets standards for both animal feeds and pet foods in the United States.
Meat by-products are nothing more than slaughterhouse waste… waste that’s been banned for use in human food… and then sold to the pet food industry.
“Meat meal” can be legally made from… road kill, euthanize cats and dogs, dying/diseased/disabled farm animals, dead zoo animals.
3 THE FIRST 3 ingredients
All dog food manufacturers have to comply to the same listing regulation as human food manufacturers. So, always practice getting first 3 ingredients sort out. Grab a bag with high quality animal protein ranks near top of the list. Example, Chicken Meal, Fish Meal, Sweet Potato and so on.But be aware also to the below… They are deceitful… It is call Ingredient splitting.
So make sure you read properly… This kibble is obviously grain base but listed to make their way into our furkids stomach as high protein base dog food. READ! DO NOT be fooled.
Overall, have all these in mind before you read the bag. The ideal dog foods as by far are as such:
START reading folks and always keeps our furbabies safe and protect them from unscrupulous businessmen out there :>
