Is Expensive Pet Food The Best For my Pet?

 

Is expensive pet food better for my pet and how do I choose the right food?  At the first question the answer is no

There are plenty of pet foods and diets out there that are extremely expensive, that don’t have an AAFCO stamp, they are not regulated by the state or federal government and so they don’t meet the nutritional needs of your pet.  The AAFCO stamp is very important.  It stands for the American Association of Feed Control Officials. Sometimes the more you spend on the food that means higher quality ingredients but again that is certainly not the case across the board and you can’t just make a blanket statement that if I spend a lot of money on food I know I’m getting good quality ingredients.  Most important thing look for that AAFCO stamp and talk with your veterinarian.

How do I know that I’m giving my pet the best pet food possible and the answer is what’s your pet’s overall health and physical fitness level.

If you’re feeding as more senior dog then they’re not going to have the energy requirements required from a young active growing puppy. What about brands. Certain brands are better than others but that has nothing to do with costs. So the answer is there are many pet foods that would be good for your pet and it is all dependent upon the lifestyle of your pet.

  • The most important things to look for are that AAFCO stamp and make sure it’s done by a feed trial.
  • Second, look at the health and physical status of your pet. If they’re doing well you’re probably doing great by them as far as nutrition is concerned.
  • Third, talk with your veterinarian because they may have some recommendations that are specific to the lifestyle of your pet.

Don’t forget. Expensive pet food isn’t the best pet food!
