We want to make sure
that our pets are receiving high quality, fresh food.  However, the pet food market can be confusing
and misleading.  With more than 3,000
different pet food brands, how do you know which option is best for your pet?  Here are a few tips to help you better identify healthy pet food.

Marketing Buzzwords:
  • Natural
  • Premium
  • Gourmet
  • Holistic
  • Human-Grade

These marketing buzzwords don’t
have a legal definition.  This means that
there is no standard that products need to meet to say that their products meet
any of these qualities.  However,
marketers use them because they know they attract pet owners.  While pet foods that use these terms can be
healthy, they do not necessarily guarantee that the pet food is healthy.  We remind pet owners to always read labels!  You can also look for foods that
have undergone feeding trials as recommended by the American Feed Control
Officials (AAFCO).  This will help ensure
that the food is nutritious for your pet.

If you still aren’t sure what pet
food is best for your pet, contact our office! 
We can help you decide on a healthy and economical diet for your pet
without all of the marketing hype.
