Top Five Dog Friendly Fruits

July 19, 2017

Summer Refreshment - Fruit SaladThe good folks at The Farmer’s Dog suggest adding fruit to your dog’s diet so Fido can reap the same health benefits you do while enjoying a fresh-from-the-garden (or orchard) snack! What’s safe to give them? Check out this top five list of fruits your dog can enjoy with you.

Apples – Packed with fiber and vitamins A and C, an occasional apple is a great way to add extra nutrients to your dog’s diet. In addition, their low protein and fat content makes them the perfect snack for senior dogs. Always remove the seeds and core before offering them up to your pup, as apple seeds contain cyanide and can have poisonous effects on your dog if consumed regularly over time. [Read more]

Tuesday Top Ten: Best Dry Dog Foods

April 4, 2017

Man’s best friend has become a member of the family—and the pet industry knows it. Pet product marketing is shifting to appeal to our responsibility as “pet parents” and making sure we give our pets the very best, with slogan’s like Honest Kitchen’s “Honest Difference” with “human-grade” ingredients. But how much do we really know about what we’re feeding our beloved dogs?

Clean Label Project™ had over 900 of the most popular pet food products tested for 130 industrial and environmental toxins including arsenic, once known as a primary ingredient in rat poison; cadmium, the active component in battery acid; as well as pesticides and additional contaminants linked to cancer and other fatal conditions in both humans and animals. The results were shocking.

Clean Label Project found lead in some pet food at 16 times the concentration of lead in Flint, Michigan’s tainted drinking water. And arsenic in concentrations of 555 times higher than the maximum contaminant level for human drinking water set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This is the food our pets eat twice a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It is cause for extreme concern.

If you’ve been a long time reader, you know I have toyed with making homemade dog food several times, but can never seem to find the time to stick with it for very long. I have the typical working parent guilt – I know it’s better for the dog if I make it myself, but I have a hard time juggling everything I “should” be doing. Earlier this week, I posted about how happy I am with Chewy.com, a budget conscious and convenient way to get high quality food for the dog even though it is commercially made. What about you?
