How nutritious is your dog’s food?

Wednesday, February 15, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

When purchasing dog food, always check the bag. If it’s labeled “complete and balanced,” it meets the standards of the American Feed Control officials, or AFCO.  These dog foods either have an adequate nutrient profile based on laboratory testing or they passed a half year feeding trial. AFCO members includes both government agency and pet food company employees.  Dog foods that don’t meet AFCO standards could still be legally sold. They can’t display terms like “complete” or “balanced.”  Most veterinarians recommend AFCO approved premium brands. Feeding your dog a high quality diet is one of the most important decisions you can make for his well being.

Remember, your pets count!
