We all love our pups and want them to be happy and healthy. As someone who lost a dog to tainted rawhides made in China, I want to share an important resource with you - http://www.reviews.com/
You don't want to feed your dog unsafe ingredients. Knowledge is vital for this. Recently in a study conducted by Reviews.com, they surveyed pet owners where 70 percent admitted that they didn’t know all of the ingredients in their dog’s food—including the very ingredients at the heart of a recent Purina lawsuit. All dog foods claim to be “premium” and “all natural,” but with very few regulations on what it takes to meet these qualifications.
Just verifying all the ingredients in your food are “safe” doesn’t mean they are optimal or even healthy for your best friend. Dogs need the right combination of protein, fat, moisture, fiber, and nutrients to live healthy, happy lives. The wrong ingredients in the wrong combinations can lead to a host of health problems, both physical and mental.
Because ingredients matter most, Reviews.com started by eliminating formulas with ingredients they determined to be unhealthy, unsafe, or unfavorable. It was important that each formula have a meat protein listed first. Then they looked at formulas containing beet pulp or sugar, by-products and sauces, and product recalls.
After a very rigid and specific review methodology, they brought their list from 2,200-plus dog food formulas down to 134 formulas across 29 approved brands. You can see their full article here to see if your dog food made the cut: http://www.reviews.com/
Buddy and Herbie want to stress the importance of feeding your pup the right food with the right ingredients. Here's to a long and healthy life for our best friends.
