What is the best food for my pet?

What is the best food for my pet?

We get this question daily. There’s no easy answer, however here are some guidelines for improving your dog or cat’s diet.

The FACTS: Dogs are omnivores, but lean toward the carnivore (meat eaters). Cats are strict carnivores (meat eaters). For good health, they both need meat as the foundation of their diet. So, it makes sense that any diet you choose for your pet should be meaty. Many grocery store brand AND many prescription dog foods are NOT meaty. In fact, they are loaded with grains and other carbs, fillers, chemical preservatives and dyes. Don’t just look at the picture on the bag, actually look at the list of ingredients.
