Commercial dog food

Question:

Are grocery-store brand dog foods as nutritious as they claim to be?

Answer:

All wet and dry commercial foods ought to promote good health, as all are supposed to meet the same AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) nutrition standards. The big commercial companies test the products to make sure they have all the nutrients they need to support growth, reproduction, and good health, but as we learned from the recent pet food recall, mistakes do happen. If you’re concerned about your dog getting the right nutrients, ask your veterinarian for a recommendation.
