Seven Secrets To Choosing A Safe, Healthy Pet Food

Pet food is more than mere nutrition for your pet. It’s also a source of nourishment for the whole family, who benefit

from spending time with their canine or feline companions. That’s why it’s important to choose a food that will not

only offer your pooch the right balance of nutrients, but also one that is safe and healthy.

That’s where I come in. In this article, I’ll share with you seven secrets to choosing a safe and healthy pet food. By

following the tips you find here, you’re bound to end up with a portion of pet food that will keep your dog or cat happy and

healthy for years to come.

But first, I’d like to tell you how I became involved in caring for pets. It all started about ten years ago when my wife

bought me a cute little puppy named Molly for my birthday. I’d always had larger dogs but found myself instantly

falling for this little Chihuahua.

At first, everything was great. Molly was an affectionate little dog. She loved to snuggle up on my lap when I sat in

front of the TV watching sports. And she was really smart, too—she learned how to bark on command!

Our relationship was great, until about six months after she came home with us. That’s when the problems started.

Within a couple of weeks, Molly started to miss her morning “walk.” It only happened one time, but that was enough

for my wife. She called me into the living room and said that Molly wanted out.

Equally alarmed, I said, “What do you mean she wants out? She’s a Chihuahua! They don’t go outside!”

“She told me to take her out,” my wife said. “Otherwise she wouldn’t be a good little dog any longer. It’s her way of

telling us that she doesn’t like the food we’re giving her.”

“Well, that doesn’t make any sense,” I replied. “She’s had the same food for almost six months now. If it wasn’t good, she’d have told us by now.”

“No way!” my wife said. “That’s not how it works. I’ve read the package and the ingredients and they all look fine.”

Needless to say, my wife did not choose to follow my advice and did not feel like arguing with me at the time. She just

took Molly back outside, where she promptly vomited. The whole incident didn’t last more than a few minutes, but

my wife was left with a sour taste in her mouth toward me—and my dog food.

That’s when I decided to take the initiative. I started reading about pet foods and researching nutrition for dogs and

cats. It didn’t take me long to discover that all was not well in the world of pet food. As a matter of fact, there were

thousands of stories on message boards all over the Internet where people described their pets’ problems with

different brands of pet food.

One thing was clear: no one had ever tested their own dog food before buying it or even feeding it to their pets. Still,

there must have been something wrong with these foods—my wife’s experience was just the tip of the iceberg.

Here are some of the problems pet owners were complaining about: their pets seemed to get sick after they fed their

pets these foods; they were paying too much for pet food; they didn’t like the smell; their pets kept getting sick; and

worst of all, their pets had lost weight.

All of this information sparked my interest. I knew that people would be better off if they could get their hands on safe and healthy pet food.

With this in mind, I began to investigate the pet food industry. What I discovered was shocking: beyond a few basics,

what appeared on dog food and cat food packages was not true.

I found out right away that manufacturers could say whatever they wanted on their labels—no matter how untrue it

might be. To find the true facts, I had to rely on independent researchers and publications.

Here’s what I learned: pet foods were not as nutritious as they should be; pet foods contained ingredients that could

harm pets; and there were very few organizations doing anything about this problem.

It didn’t seem right to me—people were content with whatever it was they were feeding their dogs and cats.

I came up with seven secrets to choosing a safe and healthy pet food. By following these tips, you’ll end up with the

right balance of nutrients for your dog or cat, along with one that is safe and healthy.

First, I’ll share with you the difference between a balanced diet and a portion of generic pet food. Then I’ll tell you what

After that, I’ll share with you six secrets to choosing a healthy and safe pet food (and why I think many commercial

Finally, I will tell you the seven secrets to choosing a safe and healthy pet food—which include things you should

never feed your dog or cat if it’s a commercial product.

The Difference Between a Balanced Diet and a Generic Pet Food

A balanced diet is the ratio of nutrients that your dog or cat needs to survive and be healthy. A portion of generic pet food

contains everything that dogs and cats need, but not in the right amounts.

For example: if dogs and cats ate foods with an equal amount of protein, fat, and carbohydrate, they would be eating

a balanced diet. They would get everything they needed to sustain their health.

But what you get from a generic food is not balanced. In fact, most pet foods contain less protein, fat, and

carbohydrate than what is recommended by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). The

reason for this is simple: the makers of generic foods want you to buy more than they need so they can charge more

for their products.

I know—it sounds like a lot of work to avoid generic pet food.
