What Should I Feed my Pet?

Food Brands that we Recommend 

Bobzilla recommends feeding your dog food that most closely resembles food they would eat in the wild.  They have 42 teeth intended  to cut meat and bone, just like wolves.  They are genetically designed to survive and eat prey, not donuts, pizza or anything else highly processed, like kibble.

If you have no idea what to feed your dog, or what more info on the best diet available, read on! 

A raw food diet mimics an ancestral eating pattern, which is based on the dogs’ instinctive  and built-in desire to capture or find and eat another animal, meat, bones, organs and all (Source: DogFoodAdvisor).  Notice, this type of diet is high in protein, fat and low in carbohydrates, which will optimize health.  Conversely, the nutrient profile of kibble is just the opposite: high in carbs, and lower in protein and fat.  Here is a comparison:

Kibble is convenient, but that convenience does not optimize health, it hinders it. Home cooking and feeding raw are the best options available to us and our pets.
