Just as crisps can be considered a “filler food” for humans, with few nutritional benefits and a high content of fats, additives, and preservatives, some commercial dog foods can be placed in the same category. If you have ever looked at the ingredient list of a bag of “generic” or “branded” dog food, you will see that they are highly processed and may contain by-products and many preservatives. Foods of this size do little to preserve your pet’s health and vitality.
Your biggest concern should be your dog’s health and happiness. Giving your dog good, high-quality food at the crate can even save you money on veterinarian bills in the long run. Many people say that dog food is dog food, but they overlook the fact that by choosing quality dog food, they can improve their dog’s health.
If you’re like me, you can challenge the dog food reviews you find on the Internet. Who are the people who actually review the food? Are they dog owners or representatives of the dog food manufacturer who are simply trying to sell their product? Is it a competing company trying to tell you that a portion of very high quality food is worthless? If you value your pet, you should look at the different dog food choices available to you. Make sure your dog is getting the best food you can afford. It may take extra time and effort to research the different foods available on the market, but isn’t your dog’s health worth it?
Although there are commercial quality dog foods on the market, many people think that homemade dog food is the best for their pets.

Before you buy a commercial dog food, you should check the label carefully. Most commercial dog foods are made from organic products and poor quality meat. They may even be made from highly processed meat and organs from diseased sources. Processors believe that by heating food to extremely high temperatures, all the bad things in the food are killed. This usually ensures that all the nutrients in the other ingredients are removed by boiling.
One of the best things to watch out for in a dog food is that it is made from “human grade” meat ingredients. In other words, the “human grade” meat used in dog food could have been served to someone in a restaurant. Most “cheaper” commercial foods and some of the more expensive ones do not use meat intended for human consumption. If you didn’t eat it, why give it to your best friend? Choosing among the many dog foods can seem like a difficult task. Advertising and publicity can make the food seem very beneficial to your pet. Often they claim to be of very good quality and show on television that a happy and healthy dog is eating their food. If the ingredients are not detailed on the package or are missing, do NOT buy the food for your dog. It is very likely that this type of dog food is made from inferior ingredients and may contain chemicals and by-products that can ha
