When it comes to our furry friends, we want to make sure that they’re eating the best dog food possible. But with so many different brands and products on the market, it can be tough to know which food is best for your particular breed. That’s why we’ve put together a guide on how we review dog food products, so you can make an informed decision on what to feed your pup.
Our Product Review Standards
1. We Carefully Check The Ingredients
To begin, we take a close look at the ingredients list. We’re looking for high-quality proteins like chicken, beef, salmon or lamb, as well as healthy fats and oils. We also make sure that there are no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.
2. We Assess The Nutritional Value
Next, we assess the nutrient content of the food. This includes vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. We want to make sure that the food is complete and balanced, and that it meets the nutritional needs of your dog.
3. We Check Regulatory Authorities
We then look at government agencies like the FDA, AAFCO, USDA and FTC to see their stance on whether the safe is safe and healthy.
4. We Check For Product Recalls & Complaints
We check for any recent product recalls or complaints. This helps us to identify any potential safety concerns.
5. We Consider The Price
We take the price of the food into consideration. We want to make sure that you’re getting a good value for your money, so we compare thousands of prices every day from the top retailers, to bring you the cheapest deals.
6. We Scrutinize Brand Marketing Claims
We scrutinize any marketing claims made by the brand. We want to make sure that they’re backed up by scientific evidence.
7. We Talk To Pet Owners And Veterinarians
Finally, we talk to pet owners and Veterinarians to get their opinion on the food. We have an experienced team of Vets on our writing panel that you can read more about here.
We want to hear about their experiences, both good and bad. This helps us to get a well-rounded view of the product.
Remember, Always Consult Your Veterinarian First!
When it comes to choosing the right food for your dog, there are a lot of factors to consider. But by following our guide on how we review dog food products, you can be sure that you’re making the best decision for your furry friend.
We hope that this guide has been helpful in understanding how we review dog food products. Remember to do your own research before making a decision on what to feed your pup, and always consult with your veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns.
