How to Compare Dog Food Brands, Which is Better?

Dog Food Brands


It's hard to compare dog food brands when you might not know what to look for.
Here are a few tips on how to find the best dog food brand:


1. Look at the ingredient list and see what the first 5 ingredients are. They will be the indicator as to whether you have a good quality food or not. A good dog food should not have more than 2 grains listed in the first 5 ingredients. Protein should be the main ingredient.

2. Check the protein source. Is it animal or vegetable protein? Always go with an animal protein. Dogs metabolize animal protein much better. The best animal protein source is chicken meal. It has less water in it than chicken meat which means it will be more concentrated.

3. Don't buy a food that has corn gluten, wheat gluten, corn or soy in it. These can be very difficult for a dog to digest.

4. Find a food with NO by products. Have you ever wondered why they call it by products? It's probably because they don't even know what it is!

5. Look for health promoting ingredients like bacteria cultures, antioxidants, and probiotics. These will help to give your dog a healthy GI tract and in turn more nutrients will be absorbed.

6. Check your dog's bowel movements. Are they large or small? The larger the movement usually means the less nutrients are being absorbed into the body.

Did you know a dog fed a high quality dog food lives on average 5 years longer than a dog fed a low quality food?

Compare dog food brands and see how yours rates.
