I get asked this question a lot, for a Nutritionist, it's like asking me what's better...Cocaine or Meth? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿคช What I'd like people to understand is that the answer would be completely subjective. The average pet parent will happily give you their recommendation however when I often see these recommendations and then look at ingredient labels it verifies that the average pet parent doesn't know how to evaluate "dog food" and this isn't their fault! Dog food companies use loop holes in language to trick consumers into thinking what they're feeding their dog is high high quality. The average pet parent doesn't realise there is NO regulation of the terms premium or ultra premium or even holistic. I could make a kibble out of sawdust and add synthetic & natural vitamins and minerals to it and call it Ultra Premium Holistic Complete & Balanced. ๐Ÿ˜” When you're a pet parent that's feeding your dog dry food, you would likely feel personally attacked by my comments, I get it!!!! I would have also felt the same way when I fed kibble. It makes me feel so frustrated and sad that the dry food industry has been so effective in their marketing that over time that they have created a population of over 90% of the pet food feeding population who believes that "dog food" is safe, has everything your dog needs and is actually healthy. โŒ ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ก๐—ข ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜€๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ "๐——๐—ผ๐—ด ๐—™๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ" ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ฎ ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—น๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—ด'๐˜€ ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—บ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜๐—ต & ๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น-๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด. โŒ ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ป๐—ผ ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ "๐——๐—ผ๐—ด ๐—™๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ". โŒ ๐——๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—ด ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐˜‚๐—น๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฎ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜€ ๐˜€๐˜†๐—ป๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ป๐˜‚๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐˜€ (๐˜‚๐—ป๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ) ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ก๐—ข๐—ง ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜๐—ต ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ. ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ป ๐——๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜„๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ ๐—ด๐—ถ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜€ ๐—ฒ๐˜†๐—ฒ ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—น๐—น ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐˜๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—บ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜'๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜๐—ต๐˜†! ๐Ÿพ Here's what we do know: โœ… Even kibbles labeled as "Premium" are not mostly meat, you are likely feeding more plant matter than meat. โœ… Cheap kibbles might have around 20% meat. โœ… Kibble unless otherwise specified is generally high in carbohydrates which is counter to what a dogs body is made to function on. Carbs aka sugar can be around 25-50% of the kibble formula! โœ… Kibble is not an anti-inflammatory healthy food, in-fact it, its high carbohydrate content will do the opposite and create inflammation in the body. โœ… We have accepted organ failure, cancers and the likes as "normal" in middle-older aged dogs. We are what we eat, take a moment to really take that in. โœ… Dry food fed dogs have a lack of diversity in their gut flora and given the gut is the body's 2nd brain and influences disease and behaviour that might be something that needs some serious addressing. โœ… That pretty picture of the cut of meat or nice veggies on the packaging is NOT what is in the pack. Any product with "by-products" is the literally rubbish off the floor - the waste product. Animal by-product can be and is (photographically proven) transported to rendering plants in UNrefrigerated trucks. โœ… The synthetic nutrients used to "balance" a dry food is known not be to absorbed and utlised in the same way as whole food nutrients from unprocessed foods. I could keep going but I think you get the drift. ๐Ÿ‘Ž ๐——๐—ฅ๐—ฌ ๐——๐—ข๐—š ๐—™๐—ข๐—ข๐—— ๐—œ๐—ฆ ๐—ก๐—ข๐—ง ๐—›๐—˜๐—”๐—Ÿ๐—ง๐—› ๐—™๐—ข๐—ข๐—— โ“ ๐—ฆ๐—ผ, ๐˜„๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„?! The great news is, you can start feeding HEALTH FOOD to your dog today! Meat, bones, fruit, veggies, nuts and seeds! ๐Ÿ‘‰ You can start by removing a hand full or around 20% of your dogs kibble and replacing it with health food! Over time you can add more and more. To learn more about the types of food you can feed and how to balance it, come and join us! https://www.facebook.com/groups/rawandfresh/ ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜… So hopefully you'll now see why I can't answer "What kibble should I feed my dog".
