The Best Source of Dog Food Reviews
One of the most important responsibilities that come with raising a puppy is providing the best dog food that will supply all the nutrients which are needed for your pet’s growth and maintenance.
Different ages of dogs have variable demands in terms of what essential nutrients should be present and at what levels in a particular dog food formula. Growing puppies require more protein while sporting dogs need larger amounts of energy which can be provided by the carbohydrate component of the dog food. Of course, small dog breeds would require lesser amounts of dog food per day compared to large dog breeds. Pregnant dogs have different nutritional demands as compared to geriatric dogs. There are also dogs that need special pet food formulas because of certain hypersensitivity reactions to common dog food ingredients such as poultry meat and soy.
For most first-time pet owners, picking out the best dog food for their dogs is often difficult. The wide array of commercial dog foods available coupled with rampant advertising can certainly influence an owner’s decision. However, there are a lot of resources which can help you select the best dog food for your new pet. Although price may be one of your prime considerations, the nutritional content and the ingredients are equally important factors as well. Your veterinarian can also be a rich source of information regarding pros and cons of commercially available dog foods.
Common denominators of the highest rated dog foods include a grain-free formula that contains only high-quality ingredients with no artificial ingredients added. Fillers, by-products and common allergenic ingredients such as corn, wheat, or soy have no place in a high quality dog food ration.
Although there will be dog owners who will first be convinced into buying brands because they can be quite inexpensive, a closer look at the ingredients will reveal that corn, meat by-products, and grains constitute the major ingredients. Dogs can hardly digest corn while meat-by products are inferior sources of protein.
In picking out the best dog food, the bottom line in selecting the best food for your dog is to know what really matters—not the price or the popularity but what your dog requires to remain healthy and happy!
