Dogs and their food – why are their tummies upset?

More and more of my dog clients have been having food issues – allergies and stomach concerns – even being “prescribed” or “recommended” foods only found at the vet’s office.  Dog food is big business and I believe fillers are being used to make more money, with less nutritional value for the dogs.  (I have not found the same issues with my cat clients – but if you are having a concern with allergies or stomach issues this message will apply.) Please understand I do believe in Western, Eastern and Holistic healing methods –when appropriate.  However, when I look at the first five ingredients in many of these “recommended” by the vet, “can only get at the vet’s office” products, I have a problem.  

Check out the first five ingredients on the labels as they are listed by volume content.  Do you know what they are?  Are they real and nutritious food (i.e. meat, vegetable or vitamin) or fillers with words that include wheat, whey, corn, grain, meal, flour?  If you don’t know what an ingredient is, look it up – I did this while with a client.  We discovered the definition of the item was “no nutritional value, added to pet food as filler.” 

I highly recommend checking out the Blue Buffalo brand.  I am not endorsed by them or paid by them.  I have just found my clients are very happy when they are fed products by this company.  I know there are other great brands out there – read the labels – that is my message to you.
