What Should I Feed My Pet
Because many pet parents are not animal nutrition specialists, it can be confusing and stressful to determine what brand of dog food is the best. Dog food is now available in three categories: grocery store, premium, and healthy foods.

.

  • Grocery store foods
    Grocery store foods typically contain less-digestible, lower-quality, cheap ingredients. While they are a low-cost alternative, they don't support a healthy or nutrient-dense diet.

  • Premium foods
    Premium dog foods still have some components of grocery store food, including artificial flavors and colors, filler ingredients, and chemical preservatives. They are more expensive because their ingredients are higher in quality and more digestible than grocery store brands.

  • Healthy foods
    Holistic dog foods offer the highest quality, healthiest, and most nutrient-rich ingredients and are available for purchase online or direct from the manufacturer..
