just as humans have learned to avoid foods with long lists of unpronounceable ingredients, your dog’s food should feature only the good, pronounceable stuff too.
many brands contain things like dyes, sugar, too much salt, and a host of solvents and preservatives. some also contain generic “meat byproducts” that have untraceable sources and are made with a variety of different animals and questionable animal parts. but the good news is, the experts have figured out how to make the most delicious and nutritious food for your four-legged friend using human-grade ingredients. let’s dig into the good stuff to look for and the ruff stuff to avoid.
sorry, we meant, feed your dog peas and carrots. because what’s good for you is often good for your dog. like human food, the most important ingredients listed in your dog’s food are the first few, as ingredients are listed from highest content to lowest. you always want to look for a “named” protein as the first ingredient and this can include the word meal (a more highly concentrated source of protein than whole meat, which can be easier for your dog to digest). in other words: avoid animal meal, and byproduct, and look for identifiable ingredients like chicken and chicken meal.
you can find a variety of food types on the AU market in addition to dry kibble with grains, grain-free and raw dog food—other options include shelf-stable, freeze-dried, and dehydrated. some dogs thrive on one, the other, or a combo, but ultimately what sets good quality apart from the rest is simple: real ingredients.
like us, our dogs’ immune systems thrive best with a little support. real ingredients like lean protein for energy and omega-6 fatty acids + vitamin-packed veggies are key, but even the most well-balanced diet can use a boost. look for wet and dry dog food recipes that contain added supplements like vitamin e, d3, and b12 + minerals like iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants for good skin, heart, and eye health.
if you want the best possible food for your fave furry family-member, look for the following:
ingredients that are locally and sustainably sourced whenever possible
recipes that meet or exceed AAFCO’s minimum requirements outlined in their nutrient profiles
high-quality ingredients like 100% aussie beef, grass-fed lamb, RSPCA approved chicken and spinach
for some dogs, new food is love at first bite! but pickier pups might need some help with the transition. experts recommend transitioning picky dogs slowly over the first week, mixing the original food with increasing proportions of their new food. start with a quarter amount of the new food for the first two days and increase in quarter increments every two days.
