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.

I know it’s getting really close to the big day, but I can’t close out October without showing you some of the really cute costumes available for your dog this Halloween. With rush shipping, you may be able to still get these in time for Trick-or-Treat. For each costume, I’ve given you a link to the website with the lowest price I found, and the name of the costume. There will undoubtedly be price differences for different sizes.

Tuesday Top Ten: Breeds Used to Create Designer Dogs

From the Boredom Therapy website: an adorable Golden Husky

If you’re not familiar, designer dogs are those cross-breeds that are specifically bred – primarily to be cute as a button! As opposed to typical dogs whose ancestral tree hasn’t been purebred in a long time, these dogs made by always crossing the same purebred breed to another (consistent) purebred breed. For example, a Puggle is made by crossing a Pug and a Beagle. You can’t cross a Puggle to a Puggle and expect to get a baby Puggle.
