Is There Really Such a Thing as a ‘Best’ Pet Food?
I imagine vets get asked this question quite a bit, so it should have come as no surprise to us that his answer did not include a single pet food brand name.
Basically, this is what he said: In the wild, dogs eat strictly meat–so one school of thought is that feeding your dog a meat-only diet is the best, healthiest option. He also pointed out that dogs in the wild typically have short life spans (I don’t think he was saying the food was the sole reason for that, but still something to think about).
The fact that we’ve domesticated dogs has caused a lot of their dietary needs to change throughout the years. It makes sense that a dog who spends most of his time on the couch and not hunting for its own dinner might need to eat different things.
It sounds like we still have a lot to learn about dogs and their “domesticated diet.”
So what the heck do we feed our dogs then? For now, I guess we should all go with the brand that seems to make our dogs feel the happiest and most energetic, while also steering clear of chemicals and artificial junk.
What type of food do you feed your dog? Any reason why you picked a particular brand of food? Sound off below!
