SADLY VERY FEW DOG FOODS CAN I RECOMMENDIn this article we take a look at the best dog food for Pitbulls and puppies. Every question I answer concerning the best dog food is directly from my mailbox. I have selected the best and have included them for your review.
Although I relate what I feed my Pitbulls, I am confident that the information is beneficial for most any breed.
A WORD OF CAUTIONOne word of caution: When seeking information pertaining the right dog food to feed your canine friend, you have to be very careful because many websites are written by people who own few if any pets, and are simply relaying information that they have read. So too, most pet owners have very little experience and have done very little research into complex dog food and diet requirements for their pets. In fact many of the most popular commercially prepared dog food is unfit for any animal and especially your beloved pet!
ADVICE BASED ON MY EXPERIENCEAll content on Mr Pitbull is based on my personal experience, providing a balanced diet for my Pitbulls and puppies alike. Just look at my dogs and it (I believe) will be evident that my advice is trustworthy. I would like to personally thank you for visiting Mr Pitbull and I hope that the tips and information provided will help you determine the best food for your Pitbull friend.
What kind of dog food do you feed your Pitbulls? I just rescued Caesar and I want to make sure that he is getting the best nutrition possible.
NOT EVERY DOG SHOULD BE FED RAW MEATIf you plan on feeding a RAW MEAT DIET I am confident that you to will find your Pitbull to be happier with the carte du jour. I do though recognize that for many, a raw diet is out of the question. Therefore we will give you some tips as to what to look for in picking out a good quality dog food.
Although I feed a raw meat diet, I have a lot of experience feeding kibble as well. I fed my dogs kibble for years before switching to the raw meat diet. So too, still, I do not feed my puppies and juvenile dogs raw meat. I feed them commercially prepared dog food along with a number of supplements. Additionally, dogs that I feel need to gain weight, I feed commercially prepared food (kibble) and of course supplements.
DONT FEED DOG FOOD UNTIL YOU'VE READ THISOwning a lot of dogs I have learned when it comes to the best commercial dog food; one size does not fit all.
Some love and do great on one brand, while the next dog won't touch that brand, or has loose stools, or a coat that looks terrible, because even the best dog food is not going to meet the nutritional needs of every given dog. Therefore, I always use a variety of supplements added to their meal.
Too, some pets may be allergy prone, so choosing the right product can make a tremendous difference in the quality of life.
WITH SO MANY CHOICES HOW DO YOU PICK THE BESTThere is no shortage of options when it comes to commercially prepared dog food today. I recently noted one large Online retailer is selling 109 different brands! And each of those brands are available in a variety of products. Choice is not a problem! Finding good quality food that works is!
Most experts agree that even the best dog foods are filled with useless fillers that have little or no nutritional value. A bag of average dog food will contain far more fillers such as corn, rice or potatoes then it does meat, which is essential for good health.
YOUR DOG DESERVES THE BEST DOG FOODI've tried a lot of different so called best dog food, and have researched them extensively. I have provided some links here to some of what I consider to be the best available. The list is not all inclusive, simply where I would look first.
The best dog foods will have a high meat content in comparison to filler. So while the price may seem high per pound, because of the greater meat content, you will feed less of it. So in the end, cost is generally not as high as what you might think comparative wise to lower quality dog food.
#1 CHOICE COMMERCIAL DOG FOODTaste of the Wild brand is what many kennels have switched to in recent years. It is perhaps the most competitively priced 5-star rated Kibble on the market. A 30# bag of Taste of the Wild is one of the best selling items on Amazon in the pet department. Oftentimes coming in at #1. That means that a lot of people are buying Taste of the Wild from Amazon. When feeding Kibble, this is what I generally use. I think that it is in most cases the best value for a quality "grain free" formula. TASTE OF THE WILD, Hi Prairie Canine Formula The #1 seller in the Pet supplies department at Amazon. Many people are surprised to find that buying dog food Online is not only more convenient, but is often cheaper. Too, if you sign up for "Amazon Prime" you will receive FREE SHIPPING on most dog food orders!
#2 CHOICE FOR GRAIN FREE FORMULABlue Buffalo Wilderness or simply put, Blue Wilderness is another excellent value for a quality kibble. I would try this and see how my dogs respond while on it compared to TOTW. If my dog did well on both, then I would buy whatever one was priced best at a given time. It too, is a 5-star rated product. BLUE Wilderness High Protein Grain Free Chicken
BEST BUDGET GRAIN FREE FORMULANature's Recipe Grain Free Salmon, Sweet Potato & Pumpkin Recipe is a nice choice if you are not going to pay for the top brands. For the price, you get a grain free formula at a price that is unmatched.
Of course, like other grain free formulas, other ingredients are substituted. In this case, sweet potato, and pumpkin; useless fillers. Their claim that Salmon is the number 1 ingredient is however misleading. Instead of potatoes being 60% (I have no idea as to the actual amount, simply stating a figure as a basis of illustration), if you cut that quantity in half and then use pumpkin (or any other filler) as the other 30%, then you can rightly claim that the meat product is the dominant ingredient. Deceptive if you ask me. Frankly however such claims is on par with the industry practice. Nature's Recipe Grain Free Salmon, Sweet Potato & Pumpkin
TRY SEVERAL GRAIN FREE FORMULAS AND SEE WHICH WORKS BESTI have listed above what I believe to be the best dog food. What I would do is decide on two or three of these dog foods and order each. Try each dog food for a month or so and see which dog food your dog does best on. Contrary to what some may say, my experience is; there is no need to introduce new dog food slowly. Whenever I change dog food, I feed all I have of one dog food and then start them on the next dog food all at once. Most dogs do perfectly fine.
ADD SOME TRIPE TO YOUR DOG'S DIETGreen Beef Tripe is another important dog food item. Tripe is part of the stomach of a cow or other animal. This is where essential nutrients are absorbed as an animals food is digested. Just as a balanced raw diet should include organ meat such as liver, heart and kidneys; so too, Green Tripe is a great source for essential nutrients that your dog may not get anywhere else.
The term "Green" has nothing to do with the color as the color is actually grayish brown. The term green simply refers to the fact that the tripe is unwashed or unbleached. Some people feed Tripe as their primary source of dog food.
