Choosing the right pet food

Talking to pet owners has made me notice how passionate they are about their pet’s diet. I have heard them talk about the various choices they have made, including raw or homecooked meals, supplements and treats, as well as the many other trends and practices that pet owners have adopted over the years. No surprise that pet owners love their pets and spend a lot of money on them. In 2019, there will be more than $75 billion in spending on pet food, with $31.68 million on the horizon. Even the most well-intentioned pet owners have found it difficult to make informed decisions due to pervasive marketing claims about nutrition, diets and ingredients. One study found that dog owners said choosing the right food for their pet was the hardest part of pet ownership. Pet food is now marketed with all the latest buzzwords: “ancient grains,” “grass-fed,” “holistic,”” “superfoods,”,”free-range,” and “no legumes or peas” – which can lead to pet owners making poor decisions that could be detrimental to their pets and stressful for them!

Common mistakes in selecting pet food

Are you able to base your decision on one of these?

The ingredient list. Pet owners often choose diets based upon the ingredients on the ingredient list. This is more important than choosing the most nutritious diets. Remember that pets require nutrients and not ingredients.

These are the most persuasive labels. The most persuasive labels are those that include marketing information, not factual information. Not just because some diets include superfoods or ancient grains, it doesn’t mean they are the best for your pet.

Rating websites.

Recommendations from your veterinarian: Your veterinarian will help you choose the right food for your pet. Employees at pet supply stores may promote the most profitable food, the store’s private brand or the best marketing rather than the best food for your pet.

These myths and misinformation could be part of your decision-making process. You might end up choosing the wrong diet.

Make Good Decisions for Your Best Friend

You care about your pet and are passionate about giving her the best nutrition. What can you do for your pet to get the best food?

Talk to your vet. Talk to your veterinarian.

Ask questions about your pet’s food. While most of the information is not listed on the label (e.g., whether the manufacturer employs qualified nutritionists and uses rigorous quality control procedures), this information should be provided by the manufacturer.

You can be skeptical about the internet’s nutrition. Although the internet can be a great resource, it can also be unreliable and full of misinformation or completely false information.

We know how much you love your pets and feel your passion. We want you to give your pets the best and healthiest food. We want you to be able to make informed decisions about the health and nutrition of your pet. It is important that you base your decisions on facts and not emotions.
