Dog owners rightly wonder how to recognise good dog food. Here are some tips on what to look for when buying dog food.
There is an extremely wide selection of dog food on the market. Whether at specialist retailers or online – new dog owners are faced with an enormous choice of dog food and often do not know which one they should decide on. After all, people want to buy good dog food at a fair price. But how do you recognise a good dog food? And what type of food is actually the best? Wet food, dry food, a combination of both, or even BARF? Every dog owner, breeder and vet has their own opinion. Fortunately, the dog can be fed healthily with wet or dry food, or a combination of the two, as long as you have chosen a good complete dog food. When choosing the right food, dog owners should therefore take into account the type of dog food (complete dog food, supplementary dog food), the phase of life, and the individual needs of the dog. For example, young dogs need a different dog food to older dogs, agile dogs a different one to dogs with a calmer temperament, and healthy dogs different food to dogs that are ill. Fortunately, there is an extensive range of good dog food available that takes into account a dog’s individual needs.
