With so many dog food brands available, pet owners will surely have a hard time picking out the best one for their pets. But if you know the specific dietary needs of your dog, it will be easier for you to zero in on the right pet food. Here are some Pet Care tips to help you choose the best food for your dog:
- Choose pet food that is appropriate for your pet’s lifestage, breed, and/or activity level.
- Smaller breeds are better off with smaller kibble because they could choke on the larger ones.
- If your dog suffers from a health issue, such as allergies or kidney disease, your vet will prescribe a special diet for your pet.
- Make a habit of reading pet food labels. Check out the list of ingredients, making sure that the first five ingredients are made of high quality protein or named meat. Steer clear of pet food that contains fillers and animal by-products.
