When you buy foods for your children, looking at the back label has already been a standard procedure. However, when you go to a local pet store to buy food for your dogs, you rush into the bargain section and grab a 50-pounder bag of feeds for $10 or sometimes even less. You wouldn't even spare a moment to check for the dog food ingredients.


When you buy foods for your children, looking at the back label has already been a standard procedure. However, when you go to a local pet store to buy food for your dogs, you rush into the bargain section and grab a 50-pounder bag of feeds for $10 or sometimes even less. You wouldn't even spare a moment to check for the dog food ingredients.

Have you ever wondered what's inside that colorful package? Or perhaps what goes in to your dog's body after he eats that doggy treat you bought for him because of its catchy advertisement? Unfortunately, TV commercials and magazine advertisements would have pet owners believe that pet foods are the ultimate healthy balanced diet for our beloved dogs. Chicken, lamb, whole grains, beef, quality fats, and fresh vegetables are assumed to be the primary dog food ingredients that are built-in. Well, at least the advertisements got you thinking so.

In truth, this is not always the case. In fact, a growing quantity of canine deaths are due to the risky dog food ingredients that are included in their daily meal. Unfortunately, some commercially branded pet foods only divulge us half of the story. The other, darker half of the story is hidden behind the incomprehensible back labels. Due to the increasing total of animal deaths due to the not needed dog food ingredients that are intently incorporated, the Association of American Feed Control has established a list of official dog food ingredients.

However to make things easier you have to remember that the appropriate ratio in dog food ingredients is at least 30 percent meat. And each time try to remember that meats are way not the same from meat byproducts. The main one or the first two listed dog food ingredients should if possible be meats like chicken, lamb, or beef.

The first list on the label also accounts for the greater part of the ingredients incorporated. Chicken feet, duck beaks, are bones are examples of meat byproducts you should avoid. They do not contain any nutritional usefulness. Vegetables are also good dog food ingredients. They are packed with vitamins and minerals needed to achieve greatest likely growth. Carrots, corn, and barleys are usual dog food ingredients.

Pet foods are manufactured differently. This also goes true to every dog food ingredients that goes in. Each dog food company has their own ingredients to include. This is what sets them apart from other brands. However, not everything that goes in is safe. So, might as well do your own checking! Click for Dog Food Ingredients Free Report.
