Whatever you are going to feed your pet, you should always make sure to do your research. My dog eats Dogswel as of right now, but there are better foods out there. Evo, Innova, and California Natural which are all made by the company Natura were just bought by Procter and Gamble which do animal testing and own Iams and Purina. Most foods sold at grocery stores are complete and utter crap. Read the label. Dogs should not be eating SOY, WHEAT, OR CORN! Besides those fillers you might see things like cellulose, aka, sawdust. You might see BHT or BHC which are chemical preservatives that cause cancer and are banned from human substances. Many pet food companies just throw in whatever meat they get cheapest. This mean buying protein from rendering factories that just grind up dead animals. This means your dog is eating euthanized horses, dogs, cats, road kill and so on. It doesn’t stop at the grocery store though. Prescription foods are just as bad if not worse. They contain little to no meat sometimes and can cause even worse health. Vet’s are not always trained in nutrition and are provided texts books via Purina! Therefore all they know is to put a dog on prescription food when sick.
Not all pet food companies are evil. Many are affordable and offer a complete nutrition for you loved one. Premium Edge, Taste of the Wild, Halo, Solid Gold, Nature’s Variety and many more are great companies with great tasting food!
