  1. Why Buy Better Dog and Cat Food? Your pet will see the immediate benefits such as: • Shiny Coat/Less Shedding • Bright Eyes/Clean Ears • No Itching/Sores/Red Skin • Healthy Muscle/Less Fat • More Energy and Stamina • Less Waste • Longer, Happier Quality of Life Source: The Whole-Dog Journal Top Dog Foods For Total Wellness Annual Report

  2. Read Your Package for Ingredients • Look for superior protein sources--whole, fresh, named meats (lamb, duck, venison, chicken, turkey, herring, salmon) or named meat meals as one of the first two ingredients. • Ex: Chicken meal includes flesh, bone and organ, dehydrated into concentrated form up to 10 times more potent than chicken alone, which can be up to 80% water that is cooked out during packaging.

  3. Read Your Package for Wholesome Grains and Veggies… • Whole, unprocessed grains, vegetables, and fruits have a better chance to survive packaging with nutrition intact. • Peas, apples, carrots, sweet potato, tomato, kelp, blueberry and cranberry make great additions to a meat-based diet. • Avoid multiple fragments of same ingredient following a single meat: • Chicken, whole ground corn, corn middlings, corn gluten, fructose (corn syrup) or • Lamb, whole ground wheat, wheat flour, wheat gluten, wheat meal Source: The Whole-Dog Journal Top Dog Foods For Total Wellness Annual Report

  4. Read Your Package to Avoid Bad Meats… • Avoid Meat and Bone Meal, Meat By-Products or Poultry By-Products • Larger manufacturers use rendering plants, which are called the 4-D meats • Dying • Dead • Diseased • Decayed • By-products can be beaks, feathers, hooves, poultry feet –- mostly indigestible and, by definition, not part of the human or animal food chain.

  5. Read Your Package to Avoid Bad Additives… • Avoid generic fats of unknown “animals” or poultry. • Good fats say beef fat, chicken fat, fish oil, etc. • Avoid artificial preservatives BHA, BHT and Ethoxyquin. • Look for good preservatives such as choline cloride, tocopherols, fish oils, canola or vegetable oils • Avoid artificial colors such as Red 40, Yellow 5 , Blue 2. • Avoid Propylene Glycol which is a chemical used to keep food chewy. • Avoid sweeteners like sucrose, sorbitol, sugar, and syrup which add to appeal.
