Commercial Dog Food Ratings to Homemade Dog Food


Visitors: 234

There are many more people in today's world that would probably rate commercial dog food higher than homemade dog food simply because of the convenience factor. Believe it or not, making homemade dog food is much healthier for your dog than going out and buying commercial dog food. Even if your dog is a fussy eater, homemade dog food is sure to be loved by your canine. However, there are some organic commercial dog foods that are nutritious and easy to handle. Really, what it comes down to is personal preference. It may even come down to the simple factor of cost for some. It all depends on the situation and on the canine.

When it comes to commercial dog food, there are two kinds: the kind that is alright to feed your canine and the kind that is not alright to your canine. It is also a simple process to differentiate between the two of these choices: turn the can around and read the nutrition label. If you start looking at the nutritional labels on the back of your canine's foods for a couple of minutes in the store, you will begin to realize that eighty five to ninety percent of commercial dog foods are terrible for your pet. Dry food is especially terrible for your canine, even if it is organic. It is better if the dry food is organic with high protein and other nutritional quality, but it is still not alright to give this dry food to your dog if it is all that your dog's diet consists of. Your canine needs a food that has naturally occurring moisture in it and dry foods cannot provide for this need. Dry foods are also high in carbohydrates and low in protein and other nutritional value. The key to keeping your pet healthy is to keep their diet balanced. If you do choose to keep giving your canine commercial dog foods, go for a science diet or other healthy choice. Look for dried vegetables and grains along with high protein in a commercial dog food. This type of commercial dog food will more than likely be quite expensive.

When it comes to homemade dog food, you have the control you need. If you are making your canine's food, it will be much easier to make sure they are getting all the vitamins and nutrients that they need in one day. If you decide to try making your own homemade dog food, you will more than likely be saving yourself a whole lot of money. Making homemade dog food is like buying the top high grade commercial dog food for half of the price. You can add all the ingredients that you need to balance your canine's diet out while saving yourself some money. It is true that this is hardly the most convenient way to go about feeding your animal, but it is certainly the most healthy and price efficient way. You can also choose to make more than one helping at a time and save back containers that are pre-made so that feeding can be quick when you are in a hurry.

Commercial dog food can shorten your pets life. Some commercial brands can actually be harmful to your pet. Ingredients that have been banned in human food are still in many brands of dog food. You should know the facts to help your pet live a long and healthy life. Take a look at Dog Food Ratings
