What you feed your pet has a huge effect on your pet’s behavior, health, and overall well-being. However, it’s difficult for consumers to know what’s really in their pet’s food. The pet food industry is not regulated very well, labels are misleading or hard to understand, and companies often have slick marketing campaigns that can make it seem like a food is “all-natural” or “premium” when, in fact, it is highly processed, contains cheap fillers or animal by-products, and is deficient in many essential nutrients. Even more expensive commercial food may include added ingredients that are unhealthy. The result is that pet owners are often unknowingly feeding their pets inferior food with synthetic ingredients and then are left wondering why their pet has allergies, diabetes, or intestinal problems.

Feeding an all-natural diet is the cornerstone of your pet’s health and can help prevent expensive vet bills related to poor nutrition. The best thing to feed your dog is raw food. If that is not possible, freeze dried raw, canned, and/or a whole food kibble that keeps the nutrients intact with no added synthetic vitamins and minerals can give your pet the complete nutrition they need. 

A high-quality diet improves your pet’s energy levels, the quality of their skin and coat, the digestive tract and teeth, and enhances the immune system, which helps your pet deal with stress and everyday activities. In addition, a better diet may reduce or eliminate allergies, inflammation of the joints, infections, and shedding. To top it all off, healthy dogs don’t poop as much!
