How to Find a Quality Dog Food That is Nutritious And Safe

You love your dog and want to know you are feeding a quality dog food - a food that is good for him. Holistic veterinarian and respected pet food formulator, Dr. Jane Bicks, says the 'whole health' of the canine needs to be considered in dog food ingredients because the food we feed is his primary source for healthy nutrition.

A glimpse into canine ancestry will help illustrate what your dog needs to eat:

Your pet companion's ancestor, the wolf, consumes his kill and rests until he needs to hunt again. He doesn't graze on grass for grain or strip corn for indigestible filler. The wolf will avoid eating a diseased or rotting carcass. His feast is fresh, uncontaminated meat. He will consume the stomach and internal organs of the kill. These vital nutrients enable the animal to digest his meal and fuel his body. Complete nutrition as nature intends.

So, this ancestor wolf has since evolved into our domesticated canine - your pet companion. And, who is making his food choices? You are! Your dog doesn't hunt for his food and doesn't have freedom to choose what he eats. It is your responsibility. He counts on you to choose best dog food for him.

Your dog would not want to choose a food that includes chicken feathers, feet, and beaks - the ‘by products’ of animals churned into an indigestible powder? Shocking as it sounds, these really are ingredients in many of the leading dog food brands on your store's shelves today.

This is your pet companion and he lives under your roof, shares your home, a member of the family, and he trusts you to care for him. You have an important job as his Alpha to do his hunting for him and find a dog food with good stuff.

Here’s how to be a smart hunter and find a dog food that is nutritious and safe:

You will want to find a dog food produced by a company that has strict production guidelines and a quality assurance program that is rigidly enforced to ensure the integrity of their pet food products.You will want to choose a quality dog food for complete nutrition.

Look for chicken or chicken meal on the dog food ingredient list. Your dog needs this quality protein and it should be at least 25%, by volume. Next on the list should be vegetables, fruits, and healthy, digestible grains. If you stumble on one you can't pronounce, its probably not a good thing to feed your dog. If you read corn or wheat in the ingredient label – run far, far away. These are poisons to the canine system and can cause stomach upset, dull and itchy skin, tooth decay, and lethargy.

A smart hunter will choose the right food. Yeah, that is you. So, proceed with the hunt for a nutritionally superior dog food that has never been recalled. Look for one that has a content list that is natural and wholesome. You know your dog is counting on you to choose carefully. You can find a nutritious dog food that tastes great and is good for him!
