Tip of the Month - Don't Underestimate the Value of a High-Quality Dog Food

Often the most economical pet foods are the lowest in quality and nutritional value. It's important to choose your pet food carefully. Spending a little extra money on a higher quality pet food now can save you big at the vet down the road. Consider the following before selecting a food for your furry friend:

High Quality Protein Sources: High quality protein sources should include protein from meat sources. Plant based proteins are commonly used in many dog foods but are not good sources of protein.

Preservatives: Chemical preservatives such as BHA, BHT and ethoxyquin are often added in pet foods. Natural preservatives such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and oils of rosemary, clove, or other spices are a better alternative. Natural preservatives do not provide as long a shelf life but are generally safer. 
 
By-Products: By-products can vary from batch to batch. They can contain internal parts of animals such as necks, heads, feet, intestines, and other internal organs. Many manufactures use by-products because it’s less expensive, these may not be the best source of food for your pet. 
 
Antioxidants: Antioxidants are often added to dog food to supplement and help a dog’s immune system. Antioxidants can help deter many diseases including kidney disease, heart disease and cancer. 
 
Artificial Dyes: Artificial dyes are often used in pet foods for visual purposes, but it is not necessary and some have been linked to medical problems.
