Choosing Food for Your Dog
A dog’s nutritional needs are not the same as the nutritional needs of their humans, and dogs should not be fed “people food” as a steady diet.
The breeder that you bought your puppy from probably recommended a specific brand of dog food.
It will be the brand that the puppy has been eating, and if it is a good brand that meets the puppy’s nutritional needs, it’s a good idea to stick with it.
If you’re a responsible dog owner
The first thing you’re likely to do is to take your new puppy to meet his new veterinarian to begin his puppy shots.
Tell the veterinarian what puppy food the breeder recommended and ask him if he thinks it’s a nutritionally sound choice.
If he doesn’t think it’s a good choice, go with the brand the vet recommends.
Meat should be the first ingredient listed on the label of the dog food you buy.
If it isn’t, change to a brand that does list meat as the first ingredient.
The best blend of healthy dog food is about 40% meat, 50% veggies, and only about 10% grain or other carbohydrates.
Dogs are carnivores by nature
Sometimes low-quality dog food brands will list meat first, but then there will be a list of fillers (carbohydrates) that add up to a larger percentage of the total ingredients than the meat.
So you must read the labels and understand what it is that you are seeing.
