As a concerned dog owner, you are doing your research to find out what is the best dog food for your pet. We have been in the pet care industry for three generations, and are also breeders of field champion Pointers, so we have a little inside knowledge concerning the best natural dog foods that are available. We ONLY use natural dog food!
One of the most asked questions we get from our customers is, "What are the best healthy dog food brands?" Most of these dog owners are worried about their dog's coat, not the actual health benefits of each commercial brand of food. Perhaps that is what brought you to this article, or you are doing your research before you switch a young dog from puppy food to adult. I will tell you that I don't believe ANY of the commercial brands are suitable, or even healthy, for your dog.
If you watch the ads for "natural dog food" on TV, you would probably get the idea that you can buy this brand or that brand of dog food, and you would be doing your dog a favor by providing him or her with the best dog food that's available for a long and healthy life. Unfortunately, this couldn't be further from the truth.
One of the dirty little secrets of the Pet Care Industry is this: all the manufacturers are including chemical,additives, and fillers that affect the health of your dog, and can actually decrease your dog's lifespan. The terrifying truth is, many people believe that commercial dog food is linked to thousands of doggie deaths across the U.S. each year. Many vets and dog care experts agree that any dog that consumes commercial food on a daily basis is at a higher risk to suffer a premature death. The worst part of it is, once you can see the symptoms, it is usually too late to do anything about it, other than having the dog put to sleep.
There are many sources out there that can recommend a strict diet for your dog. They can give you the least expensive and least time consuming ways to meet your pet's dietary needs without sacrificing their health and longevity. By following one of these diets of all natural dog food, you will benefit your dog in the following ways:
*Your dog lives up to 8.3-years longer (it's been documented!). You get many more happy years of love and enjoyment with your dog.
*If you follow the calorie recommendations I make, your dog is a perfect, slim and attractive weight. High fat and sugar levels in commercial food are a leading cause for obesity in dogs --- and obesity is the #1 health disorder seen by vets across the US.
*Your dog is much less likely to get to ear and skin infections, worms and fleas. Your dog is much more comfortable and you save a fortune on vet bills
*Your dog's teeth are much cleaner and breath smells much better, so you enjoy being around them more.
*You save money, it's actually much cheaper than buying well-known brands of dog food. Save as much as $1000/year, that's well over $10,000 over the lifetime of a dog that eats healthy home-cooked food!
And so much more...
Your dog loves you unconditionally, and you can give that love back by doing your research to find out what is the best food for your dog.
