Choosing the Best Dog Food

These days choosing dog food for your pets is as hard as choosing the right bread. There are numerous of different options that can make your head spin. Instead of just choosing anything putting it in your cart and checking out, you need to consider your pets’ needs, likes, age, and health. While there are numerous of choices available for our pets, it also means that we have more options for our dog to enjoy. Some of these choices include:

  • Dry dog food
  • Wet dog food
  • Raw dog food
  • Hypoallergenic dog food
  • Large breed dog food
  • Weight loss dog food


When it comes to choosing wet, dry or raw food it all depends on you, your budget and your pet. Whether you choose wet, dry, raw dog food, or a mixture of two or three, it is up to you. Be sure to look at the ingredients and ensure that the first few items listed are sources of meat protein. If your pet has allergies or develops allergies such as constant itching, skin irritation, vomiting and diarrhea, you need to monitor his food and change it. It’s hard to identify what triggers a pet’s allergies but a lot of times it is chicken and products that use chicken protein or fat. Avoiding these chicken dog food products can help your pet’s allergies subdue.

All dogs are not the same, not just in size and breed, but in personalities as well. While you could be purchasing the best brand name dog food, your dog might not like the flavor. It might take them a while to get used to it or you will have to mix it with their current food. Do not change your pet’s food dramatically as this could also trigger stomach discomfort. Only time you will need to change your pet’s food is if the vet recommends it and prescribes a specific brand. Your pet will need to stay and consume only that food for as long as the vet prescribes or the symptoms improve. It is crucial that your pet stays on that specific food, and dog treats and other edibles are avoided.

When choosing the best dog food for your pet, make sure that you look at the intended age. All pet food will state whether it’s designed for a puppy, adult dog, a senior dog, or even a senior plus dog. There are also dog foods designed for smaller and larger breeds. This helps your pet consume the ideal amount of protein for their size so that they do not gain too much weight or have weight-related health concerns.

Choosing the best dog food does not have to be hard, as long as you read the ingredients. Make sure that you also read your dog treats and supplements and vitamins ingredients as well and choose products that are natural, healthy and beneficial to your pet.
