When you go to the supermarket and pick up a giant bag of kibble or cans of dog food you are probably not too concerned about what is in it. After all, it has never hurt your dog before, so there is no reason for it to start now, right? Wrong. The truth of the mater is that the pet food industry has such lax regulations on what ingredients go into dog food that they can hardly be said to have regulations at all. Safety is a factor that is not a high priority in the pet food industry.
Dog food is normally filled with by-products and leftovers of questionable quality to say the least. This is filler that offers no benefits for your dog on any level. In other words, the food your dog eats is designed to keep them from starving and nothing else. In other words, this is not an industry that appears to have a lot of care for your pet.
Do not despair, though. There are still plenty of options out there for your dog that are safe and nutritious. All you have to do is look closely at the ingredients list. By studying up on what goes into the food you will know exactly what your dog is eating and where it comes from at all times.
