It makes no sense buying expensive dog food that doesn't do jack for your dog’s health. People love to spend on brand products and sometimes that is just all there is to it, "Brand." A good value dog food must not be too costly yet have all or most of the benefits of providing a good nutrition for your dog.
Less Grain = More Meat
Let's get one thing straight right now. Dogs are carnivores and by nature’s law are meat eaters. Their digestive system was designed to break down meat much more efficiently than grains. I am sure if you let you pet dog out to go wild he would be picking off a few chickens and goats instead of twigs and grass. Part of getting the best dog food for your money includes purchasing a dog food with at least 75% meat content to grains.
Size Matters - Count Every Penny
Yes, size does matter, who says otherwise has never purchased dog food. It makes no sense purchasing two tinny bags of dog food for let's say $6.99 that only contains 900 grams of food, when you can purchase a 1 Kg bag for $5.99. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish. Pick up large bags and save on dog food cost and get the best dog food for your money.
What is in the dog food that is on the shelve matters. Read the package ingredients carefully and try to avoid the following below:
- Corn and wheat gluten.

- BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene)
- Food Dyes (Blue 2, Red 40, Yellow 5 and 6, 4-MIE)
- PG (Propylene Glycol)

All that is in the bullet list is not good for your dog and if you love your pet, don't slow poison them. Look for dog foods with natural preservatives, vitamin C/E or no preservatives.
