Every dog owner wants their dog to have a happy and healthy life. However, supermarket dog food can be terrible. But there are some who would go so far as to say that the food in kibble bags and cans is actually bad for your dog. This is due to the outright lack of rules and regulation within that industry. It is more important now than ever before that people pay closer attention to what their dogs eat.
One of the biggest reasons why you need to watch what your dog eats is because dog food today is nutritionally void garbage. It is composed of a lot of by-products and filler. It is not designed to be able to help your dog grow and develop a healthy body. It only fills thier stomach. This is a relatively sad thought when you get down to it. Dog food should be nourishing. It should promote positive growth. It should help your dog put on muscle when paired with the right exercises.
Another reason why you need to be careful with your dog's food is because some brands will go so far as to use euthanized animals in order to make their food cheap. They will even use dogs. This is a horrendous practice that goes unchecked and unpunished because the pet food industry's only requirement is that the food come from a mammal. Unless you do your own research, you can never be sure just what your dog is eating at any given time. I was reading this piece about an all natural dog treat that seems to be going in the direction the rest of the dog food industry needs to be.
