I have a dog named Zoey and a cat named Tango. Caring for my pets is important to me and that includes choosing the right food for them. Tango kitty is on a special diet so he’s all set. When we adopted Zoey, I had to find the right food that keeps her healthy and provides a balanced diet.
Ask a Friend With the Same Breed
I wanted to make sure we gave Zoey the right food for an active sporting dog. My friend works in animal care and has labrador retrievers like Zoey.
She recommended a dry food that only has a few main ingredients and provides the best nutrition for an active dog.
Always consider the quality of ingredients in your dog’s food because not all proteins are created equal.
Dogs are natural carnivores. For their nutritional needs, they need a high quality protein that is low in carbohydrates.
Dog food manufacturers are required to use ingredients that have been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in order to be considered safe for consumption.
Check With Chewy
The people at Chewy are pretty amazing and they care about your pets. They know their products.
Our vet was the one who told us to order our cat food and our dog food from Chewy. It’s more affordable and quite often the shipping to your door is free.
Tango kitty is on Science Diet for urinary issues.
The Chewy staff can make recommendations for the right food choice for your dog based on age, weight, activity level, and past health issues.
With so many different brands and food types to choose from, it can be hard to know what will work best for your dog. Dogs have different nutritional needs depending on their breed, size, age, lifestyle and health condition.
Another thing to be mindful of are the treats you give your dog. The best thing for a dog’s tummy is pumpkin. Zoey loves these!
