We linked to an article earlier regarding why wet food is important to cats. We received complaints of unfairness from itchmoâ€™s Official Dog. And when he threatened to hump every leg in the house, we gave in. Thatâ€™ll teach him.
The opinions seem to differ on what is a good diet for your dog. Most people recommend a quality protein diet followed by fiber, then carbs (sorry, Dr. Atkins). Weâ€™ve compiled a summary and list of diets for your consumption. (Get it? Y R U NOT LOL?)
â€¢ High-quality dry foods
Details after the jump.
Biologically Appropriate Raw Food or The Bone and Raw Food diet. Either the creator of this diet is a marketing genius or an idiot. Somewhat controversial, many people swear by this method. Even in our comments, many parents have indicated that they would switch their dog to BARF.
High-quality dry foods
Meet should be the leading ingredient (not according to just the ingredients list which can mislead, but as a fact). How you come about this data can be tricky, but dry foods are good for dogs, as unlike cats, they can drink water to compensate.
If your dog knew, theyâ€™d throw you in their kennel. But hey, they still donâ€™t know itâ€™s not bacon. According to this diet, it actually doesnâ€™t matter where the high-quality protein comes from. And it doesnâ€™t have to come from meat. The Official Dog of itchmo morally objects to this diet, even though the Official Mom of itchmo is one.
