What Type of Food Is Best for Your Dog?

Veterinarians’ knowledge of canine nutrition has come a long way in the past few decades. Thirty years ago, experts believed that dogs were carnivores. They now understand that dogs are omnivores.

Still, many dog food manufacturers use sneaky tricks to lead consumers to believe they’re buying balanced and nutritious products for their pets. Some proteins are not easily digestible. For example, corn, a primary ingredient in many conventional dog foods, is one of the least digestible proteins, according to PetMD. Corn is much less digestible than muscle meats, organ meats and egg whites.

Many raw materials that are unfit for human consumption can be legally added to dog food. To add carbohydrates, some manufacturers use cheap grains, which deliver energy but not many other vitamins and minerals.

Plus, most dog foods that you find on grocery store shelves are formulated to meet the average dog’s minimum nutritional requirements. Your dog’s health and metabolism might be very different from those of the typical canine.

All of this might make you wonder if you’re better off cooking fresh dog food from scratch. There’s a convenience factor involved in feeding your pet, though. Many people would balk at the idea of spending time cooking separate meals for their dogs. Fortunately, there is a happy medium.

    Less Processing. The Farmer’s Dog foods are fresh, cooked at low temperatures, and minimally processed, especially compared to kibble. Over-processed foods historically haven’t been too great for humans, so it stands to reason that they aren’t ideal for your pooch either. Pre-Portioned.
