Health: They are what they eat, right?

Should you feed kibble, wet, or raw? Is an expensive brand name promoted by your vet really necessary? Or will the Costco brand do just as well? Should you change your foods up or keep it steady eddy with one type of food that works well for your pets? And what the heck should a dog eat anyway?

There’s no doubt that we’ve all asked these questions at one time or another, especially if you’ve ever owned a dog with tricky digestion or thought about switching to a less expensive food option to keep costs in check.

By far the most comprehensive resource for information on dog food is Sabine Contreras’s site:

The Dog Food Project

Sabine shows you how to read dog food labels, translate marketing speak into plain language (For example, do you know the difference between “Lamb Formula,” “With Lamb” and “Lamb Flavored?” These are legally defined phrases.) and she even provide a nutrition primer for better understanding of all the components needed for a dog’s balanced and appropriate diet. She’s spent a lot of time analyzing dog food labels, so you can look up the brand you feed for a full breakdown.

And to top it off, dog food and treat recalls are posted on the main page in a timely fashion as well.
