How to choose dog food ?
Deciding the Best Food for Your Dog to Thrive
Choosing your dog’s food can be a crucial decision you make for your dog’s overall well being. All the AAFCO-approved meals constitute enough nutrients required for the dog’s overall health; however, there are other things to consider besides what the dog needs to
live. The AAFCO guidelines do not cover moisture, high-quality proteins, and several additional bonuses, and this guide helps the dog thrive while preventing them from several health problems.
The other way to improve the overall nutrition of your dog is by practicing rotational feeding. For healthy dogs, altering the protein source, they consume daily can help them avoid getting food sensitivity. Practically, rotational feeding is relatively easy as substituting between a beef-based kibble and a chicken-based kibble from the same company. At Collar and Leash Palisades, we are confident of combining different food types to create other dogs’ meals. Swapping a minimum of 10% kibble with the raw diet is an excellent way to benefit raw if you cannot get all the all-raw food. Adding a topper of any food type to kibble offers the dog access to least-processed protein, whereas the price point is low. It is also an excellent way to add variety that the dogs enjoy.
Different Food Form for Your Dog You Should Know
How We Choose Dog Food?
While deciding to stock the dog food, several months of work happened behind the scenes between the leadership of a food partner and our category managers. We have a list of queries covering several concerns, including production oversight, quality control, and sourcing. Collar and Leash Palisades also want to know about the experience behind the meals: Does a veterinarian nutritionist or other professional formulate the food? And who is making the decisions for the company?
We carefully analyze every food and look beyond the analysis to answer the queries about
ingredients and sourcing. While AAFCO can have least protein standards, Collar and Leash Palisades has high minimums to reproduce the fact that the dogs need meat to live. Lastly, Collar and Leash Palisades look at all of our food makers to ensure that we offer a diversity of price points, proteins, and food forms to meet each owner’s requirements who visit our online stores
