Our store is pleased to offer a wide selection of life-stage nutrition options for your dog, including puppy, adult, senior, and all-life stages foods.
Settling on a compatible food brand for your dog can be quite the process. Your dog will likely have different dietary needs than other dogs, depending on their age, size, breed, activity level, and any illnesses or allergies they may have. Dog food near Miami Florida is often not a one-size-fits-all, so what works for one pet will not work for all! It is also a good idea to slowly rotate your dog’s brand of food on a regular schedule of every two to four months in order to ensure your dog stays interested in the food, and is receiving nutrients from one brand that it may not have gotten from the other.
The first step in choosing a dog food is to consult with your veterinarian or another professional who will be able to guide you in the right direction for your specific dog.
Choosing between canned food and dry food is the next step. While dry food is less expensive and more popular for its convenience, canned food can also be an excellent choice, though it is significantly more expensive. Picky eaters may do well with a little bit of canned food mixed into their dry food (called topping), as an alternative to feeding them lower quality, cheaper brands that some dogs find more appealing. Stewing your own bone broth to mix in with dry food is also an option to make your dog’s meal more interesting.
Once the type of food has been decided, the real research begins. Remember to always do your own research in addition to the input of your veterinarian, as some have limited background on animal nutrition. Two good resources are<a href="https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/">https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/ </a> or
<a href="http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com">http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com </a>/, which offer a comprehensive rating system consisting of over a hundred dog food brands. Examine any controversies or recalls the brand may have suffered, and evaluate whether or not the company has a regular pattern of inconsistencies.
While checking out the food itself, be sure to look at the labels and compare brands. While some by-products can be quality, such as cow hooves, the first few ingredients should not be a meal or unknown by-products, but whole meats, like beef, duck, or fish. The dog food brand should not be latent with controversial chemicals, anonymous by-products, or too main grains, which can provide good nutrients but should not be a main ingredient in the list. Corn and soy are popular filler ingredients in dog foods that make it cheaper but significantly lower its quality.
Don’t fall for the labels or advertisements of all brands, which are now following the trend of promoting holistic, balanced, wholesome dog foods to ensnare unassuming customers who may not know any better. The ingredient list will tell you the truth - not a label of ‘premium’ or ‘gourmet.’
Look instead for a statement from AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) on the bag, which is not mandatory but shows the company voluntarily met the qualifications to provide a balanced dog food of protein, fat, minerals, carbohydrates and vitamins.
