So Many Choices

We see this Snowy Owl a lot!
What to feed your dog can be puzzling. Do you cook for them, feed them kibble or raw? I feed raw to one and am presently trying dehydrated raw for the other one.

It's up to you, of course, what you feed. Do your research. For kibble, it seems that if foods meet AAFCO standards then they should be considered a good choice kibble for your dog although some are still better than others.

Here is a list of the 'best dog foods' according to this website. It explains each of the ingredients and rates the food accordingly. Again, it will be whatever works best for your dog.

The USA does have regulation of pet food but Canada does not. Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

In Canada products that pass the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) Pet Food Certification Program, which involves a feeding trial, carries a CVMA label on their packaging. Participation in the program is voluntary. There are no government regulation of pet food in the Canadian marketplace.[19] The CVMA Program was discontinued at the end of 2007.[20]
