Making sure your dog gets the right food is important. You probably take into consideration the kinds of food your dog prefers, hopefully along with the idea of which foods are healthier. Unfortunately the big scare is the idea that something could be wrong with the dinner you serve your Golden every night and it won’t be obvious until the damage is done.
The problem with dog food is the fact that it is almost impossible to tell which brands can be reliable. Over the past few years there have been multiple dog food recalls. Dog care seems to be more important by the FDA rather than by brands like 4 Health Dog Food or Diamond Dog Food, a repeat offender in 2012. The most recent recalls have included products from Milo’s Kitchen, Waggin’ Train and Claudia’s Cuisine.
Make sure you have the most up to date information on recalls to ensure proper dog care. Look at websites like FDA and Dog Food Advisor to keep up to date with the recalls. The FDA even has an email sign up so you can get the information when its relevant rather than when you are driving your pet to the vet. The most important thing to take away from this article is- It is impossible to say which brand of dog food can have a problem so don’t pick a ‘safe’ product and remain ignorant to recalls because you think that your food choice could never negatively affect your dog. People who buy 4 Health Dog Food would have never expected such health problems and you should keep an eye out too.
