Default Healthy Pet Food

When you walk into supermarkets or pet food stores, and you'll find shelves and shelves of different pet foods, finding healthy pet food for your cat or dog will become an exercise in frustration. Here I find some advices you may be interested.
First, your pet's food should be made with healthy, natural ingredients. Protein, for example, is an essential part of your dog or cat's diet. While some brands use corn or wheat to provide protein, these elements are more difficult to digest and harder to absorb than animal proteins. The inclusion of artificial additives, preservatives, and dyes can cause health problems for your pet, for example, sodium benzoate. Natural cat food and dog food keeps such unwanted products out of your pet's diet.
Second, vitamins are an essential addition to your pet's diet. Even healthy pet food cannot provide all of the vitamins and minerals your pet demands. You can ensure your pet receives the proper nutrients by adding a vitamin supplement to his or her routine. With just a few chewable tablets per day, your pet will gain all of the supplements needed for the healthiest possible life.
Third, organic healthy pet foods are better than generic. Organic healthy pet foods use organic ingredients: no emulsifiers, synthetic preservatives, anti-caking agents, or any of those other things on the pet food bag that you can't pronounce.
Last, Have some fun! Pets love to play with pet grass, and it's good for them, too. Now that you've started your research into healthy pet food, your fun comes in knowing that you're helping your pet embark on a long, happy, and very healthy journey.

I'm currently having an issue with my mini dachshund and allergies. This is a very timely post for me, because food allergies are the number one culprit in dogs scratching, scooting, and chewing their paws.

The main allergens in commercial dog food can be; beef, chicken, dairy, rice, wheat, corn, yeast, and fish. That's basically everything that is in dog food!

I've found wonderful prescription and non-prescription foods that are made with venison, rabbit, even kangaroo as the protein and sweet potato, oats or barley for the starch.

If your dog is scratching, scooting, biting, think about the cheap food you're feeding your best friend. It may be okay for you to eat fast food and other crap during the day, but don't subject your dog to crappy food. They don't have the choice. Buy the best dogfood you can, and you'll have a friend for much longer, and less Vet bills.

Thumbs up

I found this brand that I had never heard of before. It is called Natural Life Nutritional Pet Products and it is a dry cat food. I was wondering if anyone had heard of it and if it is good or bad. I'm kind of scared of anything I buy due to the recall and anyone have any idea.

If you talk about pet food then no pet food is better than Pedigree.
I have many pet foods but no food fulfills my satisfaction level except pedigree.
