WORST and BEST DOG FOOD BRANDSList of BEST and WORST dog foods

What’s REALLY in Your Dog’s Food?

Most people are blissfully unaware as to what goes into commercially prepared dog food.  (It’ll shock you).  But your dog’s health is not unaware – your dog’s health WILL suffer if you feed your dog most commercially prepared dog foods.  Dogs fed on commercially prepared dog food tend to suffer from a higher incidence of degenerative-type diseases, and, on the whole, to not live as long as those fed a dog’s natural diet.

Don’t believe me?

An eye-opening article has been prepared by the Animal Protection Institute called “What’s Really in Pet Food”.  If you’ve never read it before, I can guarantee it will put you off feeding your dog supermarket brands of commercial dog food again.

This is a list complied by the Whole Dog Journal.

It then comes down to which food off of the good list works well for your particular dog.
