It is really very simple, everyone. If you put the right ingredients into your body, your body will last longer. Same applies to us dogs.
Since your dog's lifestpan is shorter than yours, don't you want to do everything possible to extend it?
By using natural, organic food your dog will have less health problems.
Please, carefully choose the ingredients in your dog's food. If you need to take a chemistry class to understand the ingredients in your dogs food, don't let them eat it! Rather, look for pure, clean ingredients without processing. Avoid food that requires chemical additives, spray on vitamins and man made ingredients. CHEMICALS ARE NOT GOOD FOR DOGS TO EAT.
Even some "premium" foods contain chicken or beef by-products, which usually consists of leftovers in meat processing plants that are considered unfit for human consumption such as organ scraps, lips and rendered bones and tissues.
It is a cheap, low quality source of protein.
Dogs are designed by nature to eat protein from meat sources. Most dry foods, even top of the line brands, derive far more protein from grain and grain by-products such as corn gluten meal and rice than from meat sources.
If animal meat is in the food, make sure it is listed before any grains. High grain content can lead to obesity and allergies since dogs do not do well on high carbohydrate food.
Consider the ingredients of your dog's food -- our lives depend on it.
Consider your pet's diet carefully. We like variety, too. By filling our bowls with the same dried kibble every day it is the same as you having a bowl of corn flakes without milk everyday! Just imagine how awful your life would be with 10 or 15 years of nothing but dry corn flakes to eat!
Remember: If you wish to change your dogs diet, it should be done gradually. Sometimes, when a dogs diet is radically changed all at once you will risk introducing stomach and digestive difficulties.
Replace only a small portion of your dogs food with their new improved organic food.
Start out slowly for the first 2 or 3 feedings and then add a little more the next 2 or 3 times you feed. Feeding is and should be subjective to your particular buddy.
