“I eat only healthy, natural food with no preservatives.”
And, what about your dog?
“Erm.. I am not sure.”
Knowingly or unknowingly, we end up not paying very close attention to what our little doggos eat. And, that might have negative effects in the long term.
Most branded dog food is loaded with preservatives and artificial ingredients, which can cause skin issues, bone problems, liver concerns, and so on. You may not see these problems immediately but with time, they start becoming obvious.
The problem with preservatives
Preservatives are used in dog food to increase its shelf life. But some of these are quite harmful. While purchasing dog food, we urge you to look closely at the label for ingredients such as BHA, BHT, propyl gallate, potassium sorbate, and ethoxyquin. These are artificial or synthetic preservatives known to lead to allergies and behavioral problems.
We also recommend that you watch out for animal protein meals such as lamb and chicken meals. These contain a lot of fat and some amount of preservatives. On many labels, you won’t find these mentioned because they come under the “incidental additive” category. They can have adverse effects especially if your dog has sensitive skin or low immunity.
Dog food with no artificial colors and only natural preservatives such as tocopherol is a much better choice.
However, dog food without preservatives is the best!
Best dog food without preservatives
It is 100% possible to make dog food without preservatives. At Floof & Co, we take extra care to ensurethat your furry best friend only gets the best treats and chews. That is why our products don’t have any preservatives. They also have no added colors or other ingredients that can be harmful in any way.
The food is baked with a focus on immunity, joint health, and skin health. The ingredients we use include:
- Fresh meats
- Whole wheat
- Low-fat cheese
- Various superfoods
- Other safe ingredients
Since they do not contain any artificial preservatives, they have a shorter shelf life and must be consumed within the given time period. We advise that you order monthly and keep your doggo happy with the freshest of treats!
Identifying the best natural dog foods
Here are some pointers that will help you in this regard:
- The meat content should be the first ingredient (highest quantity) - at least 25%.
- Find the mention of the dog’s life stage and age – there are different foods for gestation, senior dogs, puppies, etc.
- There shouldn’t be any wheat gluten or corn.
- Rendered fat is also harmful.
- Dog food doesn’t need any food dyes. Dogs don’t care what color or shape their food is!
- Grain meals or any by-products are also just as bad as meat meals
