What’s Really In Your Pet’s Food?

Your dog is like a member of your family, but do you really know what foods are best for him to eat? The truth is that most dog owners don’t really understand what a healthy canine diet consists of. You could be feeding your dog the wrong sorts of foods without even realizing it. Did you know that the dog’s basic physiology hasn’t changed in hundreds of years? It only makes sense to base a dog’s diet on what canine ancestors ate–a balance of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Yet, modern pet foods have substantially changed what our dogs eat.

To learn more about optimum canine health (and other dog food facts), take a look at the infographic below.

  1. I am surprised that this does not indicate WHERE the protein comes from..most of it is byproduct and nasty!!

    Great infographic. People are only just starting to read the labels on dog food. We have all been checking the labels for our own food for years but now people are finally taking an interest in what is in their dogs food. Considering the fact that most people treat their pets like part of the family, most do want to offer them a better food that best matches their nutritional needs.

  3. I have to check labels on everything my dogs eat. they have sensitive stomachs. Every time I have given them “cheap” dog food or even some of the ‘popular’ treats, I have had to rush them to the vet. Protein is very important and should be natural NOT artificial!!

  4. Nice graphic. I think this can help many understand basic nutrition for a dog.
