How good bad is your pet food?

According to Researchgate, a study showed 79% of dogs and 90% of cats were fed conventional pet foods, namely dry biscuits (kibble) or tins of wet food.

Did you know Australian regulations for pet food are voluntary, and many of those pet foods may not be as healthy as you think?

We love our pets, and we want them to live a long, healthy life. Do you know if the food you’re feeding your adorable fuffball is healthy?

A quest for healthy pet food!

The purpose of these dog food reviews and cat food reviews is to give you a starting point in figuring out what’s best for your pet.

I want you to read the ingredients of your pet food, and ask yourself – does that sound healthy? Does that sound like the right diet for my dog from the Order Carnivora, or my obligate carnivore cat?

I bet, if you look at the pictures of succulent chicken on the front of the bag, then read grain after grain after grain on the ingredients list, you may be as confused as I was when I first read the ingredients of my cat food.

Why on Earth would you feed so many grains to an animal factually known to depend on a whole-prey diet.

I mean, seriously, it’s no wonder up to 50% of senior cats have some form of chronic kidney disease or 1 in 5 get diagnosed with cancer. Their little digestive systems aren’t designed to process so much grain.

You can argue the case with dogs too. Yes, they’re scavenging carnivores and will generally eat whatever you put in front of them, but it only takes one look at those teeth and jaws to know what they’re designed for.

To quote Australian vet Dr Tom Lonsdale, one of the most honest and knowledgeable vets I’ve had the pleasure to work with, our pets are not “furry toys”.

We need to feed them appropriately.

I’m a pet owner, and I want what’s best my pets. I also want what’s best for yours. I’m not a marketer or a salesman, like the folk who make and brand your pet food, I’m a consumer like you.

I’ve learned a few things from running Pet Food Reviews for nigh on 10 years, and hopefully I can pass on some of that knowledge in the reviews.

If you have any questions your best bet is through the Facebook page, or feel free to comment on the individual reviews.

Feedback, thoughts, and experiences are very welcome – they help me, and they help others!

Very Pet
