Picking a dog food isn’t easy but I have found three simple rules that really work.
- Look at the first 5 foods on the label and if your dog has allergies look for another dog food if you see corn, corn meal, any meat by-product, animal fat, or any grains.
- If you see BHA or any food coloring look for another dog food.
- Check the label for the feeding rate for your dog. Calculate the cost per day and compare it to $1.59/day for a 22# dog on Orijen which I believe is one of the best dog foods you can buy.
Step three is really important because many dog foods contain a lot of fillers like corn meal which means you have to feed more per day. You will probably find out that feeding the best dog food that will give you a healthy dog only costs 10 to 15% more per day or less than a quarter. This is a really small price to pay to ensure that you have a happy healthy dog, just like me.
As you know another thing that makes me happy is a dog treat from One Lucky Dog Bakery. Time for me to do some counter surfing.
