How to Choose A Healthy Dog Food

Choose a Healthy Dog Food

Deciding which food to feed your dog is one of the most important decisions you can make to help your dog live a long, healthy life. But with so many options out there, how do you know what makes a healthy dog food?

First, you need to understand what makes a dog food “healthy.” Your dog’s food should be 100% complete and balanced by meeting or exceeding standards set by AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials). These guidelines let you know that your dog’s nutritional needs are being met at every meal. 

Next, talk with your veterinarian to make sure your dog doesn’t have unique nutritional needs that would require a specific food. It’s important to take your dog’s age and size into consideration when selecting a healthy dog food. 

Healthy dog foods come in several different forms. There are wet foods, dry foods and even some foods that are semi-moist. Which one you choose is up to you.
