It's a well known fact………………….not all puppy food is created equally. Trying to find the best dry puppy food can be an adventure in and of itself. So where do you start? Well, probably one of the first questions you need to ask is, "Is the puppy food that I am about to feed my new puppy human grade quality? Ah, so what exactly is that?
Well, let's just say that if you knew what was in some commercial dog foods you would probably be getting a little queasy right now. Let's put it this way………if your young toddler, for example, happened upon some dry puppy food on the floor and decided to eat it, you better hope and pray the brand you chose was human grade quality.
So, what is human grade dog food? Well, its basically a food that is fit for human consumption. People food that we buy in the grocery store has to pass guidelines set forth by the FDA and USDA before it can be sold in a store for customers to buy.
It's sad but true, dog food companies are allowed to put ALL kinds of stuff in dog and puppy food that would not be fit for a human consumption. Stuff like chicken heads and feet, intestines, blood……uh, getting a little queasy yet? Oh, but thats ok, it's all listed nicely under the term "by products" on the ingredient list. Who would ever know?
So how do you know if the food you are buying is a quality puppy food? Well that's where you come in. It's up to you to read the ingredient list, check out the company, and do your homework before you buy.
Look and see if there are any "by products". That's a clear sign that you don't want to buy that puppy food. If you know what to look for in a puppy food, it makes your job a whole lot easier. Bet you'll never look at puppy food the same way again,huh?
