Whatever happened to the days when you fed your dog Purina Dog Chow? Those days are definitely gone. Finding the correct dog food is as confusing as finding the correct food for us on this "healthy" journey. Apparently, dogs need healthy food too.
Summer seems more hungry than Sydney ever was. She has more energy than Syd and is constantly on the move so I guess it makes sense. I decided to look into other dog foods for her. I talked to my vet who said to read the label and the first 3 ingredients should be protein. UGH! That is not easy.
I looked at foods and there are some which are gluten free, wheat free, low fat, high protein etc. The list goes on and on. This isn't like researching a new vacuum cleaner and reading reviews. It all depends on the activity level, age and medical condition of the dog. Don't get too much sugar, too little fat, too much grain or too little protein.
I thought reading labels on human food was confusing.... it is nothing like this
