(How can you tell that this is the best possible choice for your pet? Here are some tips to identify the important distinctions that set this food apart.

  • You must rely on your pet food to always be GMO free, meaning there are no growth hormones or modified ingredients that could lead to digestion problems in your pet.
  • You should also always watch out for Gluten, Grain, and Antibiotic Free Food. By avoiding these you can almost guarantee a happy and healthy pet, inside and out!

 Other simple ways to identify the finest possible food for your dog is to see the specific ingredients included within it. If it includes a colorful menu of organic and all-natural strawberries, cranberries, blackberries like our 5-Star Smack Dog Food, you’re getting closer to seeing clearly how important the elements of your pet’s food are. If you see synthetic supplements listed, or long-named unidentifiable products then you know it’s something you and your pet won’t like.

A final factor to consider when checking to ensure that the brand your choosing is right for your pet is the amount of protein, fat, and water or moisture percentages of each bag. You can find this located on the ingredients list. Moisture is especially important to note since fresh meat is very high in moisture and protein with less fat while lower quality, older meats are low in moisture. It can be overwhelming at times to mill through the hundreds of dog food brands all proclaiming natural or organic ingredients. Knowing a few additional measures can help you set the healthiest choice and best possible option apart from its contenders.
