What is the Best Pet Food? by Dr. Andrew Jones DVM

I get bombarded by questions about pet food.

So what is the best one to feed?

Raw vs Dry vs Home Made ??????

Here is a common Pet Food Myth…The Pet Food is fine as long as it has an accredited label on the bag- It has been tested by an “authority”

You all know what I think about authorities.

My first rule is to question them and look into their claims.

AAFCO certifies Pet Food in the U.S.

This is what can be found on the label: “Our pet foods are made following AAFCO guidelines and must pass stringent testing.”

This sounds good, until we take a close look at the AAFCO test guidelines.

“The Testing Protocols For Providing An Unqualified Representation of Nutritional Adequacy For A Dog Or Cat Food” are..

* 8 dogs older than 1 yr. must start the test.
* At start all dogs must be normal weight & health.
* A blood test is to be taken from each dog at the start and finish of the test.
* For 6 months, the dogs used must only eat the food being tested.
* The dogs finishing the test must not lose more than 15% of their body weight.
* During the test, none of the dogs used are to die or be removed because of nutritional causes.
* 6 of the 8 dogs starting must finish the test.

That’s all there is to it.

Buyer beware . . . you may be buying a pet food advertised as being a nutritionally adequate diet for all dogs because it passed “stringent” AAFCO testing … when only six to eight dogs ate that food for 6 months and survived with no more than an “acceptable” 15% loss of body weight.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////

P.S. So what do I think about AAFCO certification?

To claim it is “nutritionally adequate” with only 6 dogs eating the food is clearly not much of a study- not scientifically valid, and NOT adequate in my opinion.

I doubt many of you are feeding your pet food based on AAFCO claims.

This has almost more to do with marketing.

Here is something that has been fed nearly 30,000 times- with now nearly 1000 positive testimonials.

And you can get a bottle for 50% OFF
