Which are the Best Dog Foods to Buy?

If you have never had a pet dog before, then it is important to know the very best way of feeding him/her.  After all, one of your basic duties as a responsible owner is to make sure that your new pooch stays in as healthy a condition as possible.  You may think that it is a simple case of buying any old tin of dog food, but there is a little more to it than that…

One of the first things to bear in mind when choosing your pet supplies is to buy good quality foods.  There are plenty of cheap and cheerful dog foods on the market, but are they really going to be the best choice for your woofer?  If you want your pet to stay in good health then it is always advisable to buy him/her the very best.  Stick to well known types such as; Eukanuba, Beta Dog Food, Pro Plan Dog Food, Burns Puppy Food, Purina Pro Plan and Autarky.  These are all respected brands and they will contain all of the necessary nutrients for your pet.

Of course, some animals are fussier than others (just like people!) and you may need to switch between several different products.  This is not a problem, and as long as you are buying good quality products from your dog food supplier, then you are making sure that your pet gets all the goodness that he/she needs.

The old saying of ‘you are what you eat’ is very true and the same logic can be applied to a canine diet.  If you just buy cheap, tinned food that is lacking in proper nutrients then your pet is not going to feel particularly healthy.  He/she will feel much the same as a human being would if all they ate was greasy food which lacked any real goodness.  A dog’s diet needs to be varied and balanced, just like ours and it will play a major role in the health and happiness of your pet.

No dog should only be fed on a diet of tinned food because of its high water content (usually between 60 and 90 percent!).  There is nothing wrong with giving tinned food to your dog, but it needs to be balanced out with a dry food (this will normally only have around 6-10 percent of moisture by volume).

Those are the first and most important considerations when you are choosing the right foods for your dog.  However, a proper dog food supplier will soon be able to advice on exactly which brands are the best for your particular breed.

It is often worth looking for a supplier of pet accessories and foods online.  They can be a lot cheaper than offline suppliers and they will normally have a far better choice of products.  But wherever it is that you decide to get your dog food, put a little thought into what you buy.  After all, your pet is special to you and they deserve the very best!
