Is Your Dog's Diet Safe? 5 Ingredients You Need to Eliminate from Your Dog's Food Now

At Pet Food Australia, we are dedicated to providing pet owners with the best possible information to make informed decisions about their furry companions’ health. Choosing the right dog food can be overwhelming, especially with so many options available in the market. However, there are five ingredients that you should avoid when selecting dog food for your furry friend.

Trying To Reach

Artificial Preservatives

Artificial preservatives like BHA, BHT, and ethoxyquin are often added to dog food to prolong its shelf life. However, these chemicals can harm dogs and have been linked to health issues like cancer. Instead, look for dog food that uses natural preservatives like vitamins C and E, or choose a fresh dog food that doesn’t require preservatives.

Meat By-Products

Meat by-products are leftovers from animal carcasses after the meat has been removed. These by-products can include organs, bones, and other parts unsuitable for human consumption. While they may provide some nutritional value, they can also contain harmful chemicals and toxins that can harm your dog’s health.

Corn and Wheat

Corn and wheat are commonly used as fillers in dog food, but they can be difficult for dogs to digest. Additionally, these grains are often contaminated with mold and other toxins, which can cause health issues in dogs. Let’s face it, we all know how the majority of corn has been grown in the last decade (GMO). So instead, look for dog food that uses high-quality, easily digestible grains, or better yet, ditch the grains altogether and go with alternatives like sweet potato or pumpkin.

Artificial Flavours and Colours

Artificial flavours and colours are often added to dog food to make it more appealing to humans. However, these additives have no nutritional value and can harm dogs. Look for dog food that uses natural flavourings and colours, like carrot and other plant extracts instead.

Added Sugars

Added sugars like corn syrup and molasses are often added to dog food to enhance its taste. However, these sugars can contribute to obesity, diabetes, and other health issues in dogs. Look for dog food without added sugars or using natural sweeteners like honey.

By avoiding these five harmful ingredients, you can ensure your furry friend gets the necessary nutrients without any unnecessary risks. When choosing dog food, it’s also essential to consider your dog’s breed, age, weight, and activity level.

That’s why we offer a range of natural, grain-free dog food options made with real meat, fruits, and vegetables. In addition, our dog food contains no artificial preservatives, flavours, or colours and is free from meat by-products and added sugars.
