Would You Feed This to Your Dog?

January 24, 2020

You want the best for your dog, so why would you feed them BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole) or BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)?  Yet some of these ingredients still make it into your commercial dog food today. And you can't trust the brands themselves, as pet food companies use tricks to make their food appear better than it actually is. The package and the commercials can be misleading, but the ingredient list offers a more truthful look at what's actually in your dog's food.

Bad dog food ingredients such as the following are some of the worst offenders:

        •    BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole)
        •    BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)
        •    Ethoxyquin
        •    Gluten
        •    PG (Propylene Glycol)
        •    White flour
        •    Food coloring
        •    Meat meal
        •    MSG
        •    Corn syrup
        •    While sugar alcohols (such as sorbitol, malitol, and xylitol, among others)
        •    Soy
        •    Nitrites and nitrates, commonly found in prepared meats
        •    Sodium tripolyphosphate
        •    Vegetable oil
        •    Cellulose

        •    Brewers rice

You wouldn't eat most of these ingredients yourself, so why would you feed them to your dog?  A better alternative is natural dog food.  Check your dog food ingredient label to make sure it's not harboring one of these common, but potentially harmful dog food ingredients. Instead look for high quality natural ingredients.  

There are many companies that make healthy, natural dog food. If you have doubts about the quality of these companies’ products, you should do your own research as even the ingredient list on the label will not always tell you the quality of the ingredients or where they came from. However, there are many websites that provide information about companies that produce good natural dog foods. You can also contact the dog food company directly to get more information about its product. A reputable company that has your pet’s interest at heart should be happy to answer your questions. The World Small Animal Veterinary Association has a helpful sheet with questions you can ask a company representative.

Regular consumption of natural dog foods will ensure that the skin and coat of your dog is bright and smooth. Your dog’s nose will be clean and moist, and its eyes will shine and sparkle. The smell of your dog will definitely improve — no more wet dog smell! These foods also act as a protective shield against many dog ​​diseases.

The formula for making natural dog foods is based on organic grains and free-range organic chickens.  While meat makes up the majority of their diet, domestic dogs also derive nutrients from grains, fruits, and vegetables. These non-meat foods are not simply fillers. They are a valuable source of essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber. A good dog food will contain meat, vegetables, grains, and fruits.  These fruits and vegetables promote healthy nutrients, phytochemicals, and antioxidants. Take note that all dog food products labeled 'Organic' must contain more than 95% certified organic ingredients.

Dogs that eat natural dog food are much more energetic, playful, and healthier. Check the labels at your local pet food store: natural dog foods are easily available in the market and you don’t have to break the bank to feed your best friend and companion food that is good for them.

Next time you shop for kibble for Molly, Rover, or Charlie, keep an eye out for high-quality, healthy, natural dog foods.
