Do you go to the big box pet store or local grocery store and see the stunning marketing and the beautiful packaging only to be scared by the ingredient panel on the back of the bag? Today, so much money is spent on marketing to YOU that your pet may suffer from toxic ingredients found in the bag.
Top Chefs don't necessarily make great pet foods. Reading the ingredients and understanding some of these mysterious labels is imperative to your pets' health. If you see ingredients like corn (hard to digest), high fructose corn syrup, propylene glycol, (a derivative of anti-freeze), unidentifiable ingredients (meat meal-what meat??)
Don't be fooled by some grain free products either. Grain free does not mean carbohydrate free. If switching to a grain free food and the 2nd ingredient is potatoes what have you really done to help your pet?
Another really absurd recommendation I often hear is that you should keep your pet on the same food all of it's life. When you got your new puppy did the breeder say "feed this food and nothing else" that's about as absurd as you eating oatmeal and nothing else the rest of your life. Nutritional diversity is imperative to good health. Good health=quality life. Don't let your pet become addicted to unhealthy ingredients as it can be difficult to change your dogs over to nourishing foods.
Thinking about treats? Try single protein sourced treats like dehydrated salmon, venison, chicken, lamb or turkey. Your dogs don't need sugars, toxic chemical preservatives and food coloring. They need real food and real treats. I can't say enough about USA products, SOURCED and packaged.
