A person's first priority should be finding the right dog food to maintain or even better, improve your pet's health. Don't just go by the name of the food. Your dog won't get much nutrition from a pretty picture. For the sake of your pet (and you) learn what the percentages of the ingredients mean to your best friend's health and well being. Don't get the false impression that a person saves money by buying the cheapest food. In the long run, Vets and animal hospitals are too expensive not to mention the pain and suffering your pet could contract because of the lack of nutrients and vitamins they need to stay healthy. Always look for the date code to make sure it is a fresh product.
Each dog has individual needs because each one leads a different lifestyle. Just like the person that takes care of them. Pay attention to the major ingredients that make up their food. If your best friend is on the overweight side, pick a product with less fat. If they are on the thin side, pick one with more fat.
The Guaranteed Analysis (GA) section of a pet food label, by federal law, must contain these four things: aim to get well above the minimum amounts of crude fat (7.65%) and crude protein (20.25% ) & the maximum amounts of crude fiber (2.5% to 4.5%) and moisture (10 to 12%) in the food. Too much fiber can interfere with the absorption of other nutrients in the food. Too little fiber can contribute to the development of diarrhea, constipation and may be problems with their anal glands. These four macronutrients are considered important indicators of the food's total value. Protein and fat are the most important and also expensive macronutrients for dogs.
