Whether you’re buying pet food or stocking up your fridge, the same principle often applies: Get more bang for your buck. Ideally, you want food that’s as nutritious as it is delicious, but at a price you can afford.
Nowadays, buying dog food can be an expensive exercise, but does that mean your dog is getting the very best ingredients to keep them healthy? Not necessarily.
Newly established dog brands tend to be a bit pricier than those who have been around for more than 10 years, for example. This could be because they’re investing more in their marketing efforts to ensure visibility, or because they only have one product available.
Older, more established brands, however, often include a range of foods from inexpensive options to high-cost specialist products. Pet owners can choose which one they prefer without compromising on the quality.
Irrespective of how much you’re looking to spend, when it comes to choosing the very best for your doggo, protein content is key. Some brands will use plant-based proteins to cut down on costs, the downside is that dogs cannot digest them as easily as meat proteins.
