Have you ever wondered if your feeding your bet the best food for him or her? Is the price I’m paying for my pets food worth it? That’s what we are going to go over today for dogs and birds!
The best thing to look for when evaluating your birds food is to look for insect damage. This is the first sign that the food you may be feeding your bird may not be the best. Next, check for any signs of mold. This may be hard to notice but it’s possible that your pets food may be molding. If either of these are evident do blame the food just yet! Examine the next bag of food you get and if the signs aren’t present throw your food in the freezer, it may be that the food is being exposed to something after you get it that is degrading its quality. The freezer will kill any insects and prevent mold from growing!
The first step for dog food is to take a look at the ingredients. Check the ‘Guaranteed Analysis’ this will tell you the exact protein, fat, fiber, and water content in your pets food. Next make sure that the food is for the correct type for your dog’s size, weight, and age. Next, check and make sure that one of the first ingredients is a high quality protein source. This will ensure that your pets food contains the protein your pet needs rather than just containing ‘beef flavoring’. Last, (and certainly not least) you may want to opt for brands thats food says all natural. This will ensure that what your feeding your dog doesn’t have chemical additives.
