Healthy Dry Dogs Foods Here is input and advice from dog-loving FAQ Farmers: . Look for dog foods without corn meal or chicken/beef by-products. Both are hard to digest and result in less nutrition, and more pooping. Also, a lot of dogs tend to have allergies to dyes, so preferably buy foods tha…t have little or no dyes. . Blue Buffalo,Wellness ( only problem with Wellness is that a low-grade dog food manufacturer is buying the company so you can't neccessarlly trust them anymore) and Solid Gold . Too much corn or any dyes are not good. It's best to mix your pets food with part dry and tinned dog food. I find dry dog food concentrated and the dog will become more thirsty than usual. I buy good food for my pets (2 dogs and a cat) because fed right there are less vet bills. Just like humans; we are what we eat. Don't forget that water! Your dog should have at least 3 - 4 changes of water per day (and keep an eye on that water dish during the hot months of the season) and for small dogs at least 2 times a day. Some good brands of dry food (also in the tinned wet food) is: IAMS, BENEFIL, SCIENCE DIET. When buying wet food in tins avoid any filtering organs such as liver and kidney. When you see the word "by-product" on any tin this is a generalization of what is in that food and it's best to check on the internet as to the proper ingredients in that product. If in doubt all you have to do is call your vet for more options and there is no charge for this information. . From a dog trainer: Iams, Beneful, Science Diet are all examples of low quality options. Read labels and learn the warning signs associated with poor quality foods. Some good options are things like Wellness, California Natural, and Innova. I've got an entire article posted on how to read and understand pet food labels at my website (see the Nose Lick link to the right). Typically. If you can find it at a grocery store, stay far away from it. Another answer I agree. Absolutely stay away from Science Diet and other commercial brands. Try Wellness, CA Natural, Innova, Nature's Variety, Blue Buffalo. Stay away from all dog foods that have by-products. Also, I highly recommend giving filtered water instead of tap water and do NOT use any topical flea & tick meds. They are highly prone to cause seizures and have recently been thought to be causing all kinds of cancers in dogs and cats. Answer Stay away from corn, by-products, wheat, soy, gluten, dye's, and sometimes chicken. Look for foods with lamb, venison, and if you don't want to go grain free look for whole grains like oatmeal, brown rice, and barley. I agree that Wellness, CA natural, and Innova are good foods. Some other good ones would be Natural Balance, Canidae, Taste of the Wild, Solid Gold, and Fromm. Answer I believe that Blue Buffalo is definitely the best dog food there is along with Solid Gold. Science Diet is NOT good for your pets because it contains by-broducts and everything stated above. Pedigree, Iams and all the primary foods are horrible. Nutro is okay but i would definatley use Bue Buffalo. ANSWER Good food and bad food. A few Bad dog foods: Iams Science Diet Euckenuba Purina Beneful Proplan Sportsmix and Meowmix (cat food) Some Good dog foods: Nature's Variety Evo California Natural (and other Nutura pet foods) Innova Healthwise Verus Holistic Select Merrick Before Grain Whole Earth's Farms Nature's Logic (no synthetic vitamins/minerals) Nutro Ultra Wysong Nature's Recipe (Vegetarian) Natural Balance (Vegetarian) All good dog foods have a type of "meal Dogs are not carnivorous and should never be feed meat. Another answer Dogs are carnivorous because they do have canine teeth, otherwise dogs would have teeth like us humans. Please read the related links below to back me up. ( Full Answer )
Natural (unprocessed) proteins (preferably organic), fresh leafy green vegetables (preferably organic), fresh low sugar/carbohydrate fruits such as berries (preferably organic), and beneficial fats and oils (preferably organic) are the healthiest foods. Answer 2 There is no single healthiest foo…d, though whole-wheat bread is a good contender. Rather, the "healthiest food" is a balanced diet of healthy foods, plural, including whole grains and legumes, fish, vegetables, and some fruits, nuts, lean meats, and dairy. ( Full Answer )
Answer . I always fed my Addisons dog a homemade diet of rice, vegetables, and meat. Roxanna weighed about 70 lbs and I fed her 3-4 cups of food per day. She did great and I think fresh healthy food played a big part in her continued health. Something like, 1 cup rice 2 cups water veget…ables (1 carrot, a couple leaves of kale, onion scraps, other veggie scraps) 1/2 lb venison or other game including and especially cartilage, organs, tendons, etc. Bring all ingredients to a boil. Cover and cook on low for 30 min. Feed When cool. ( Full Answer )
vegetables i hate it but it's good for your body and it's full of vitamins and minerals. it also has no fats. :) Spinach actually is the most edible TYPE of food in the world.
There is no "healthiest" dog breed. Long ago, prior to the mainstream popularization of dog shows, certain "working" breeds were among the healthiest, but in modern times this no longer holds true. Almost all dog breeds have had their health compromised for show or other aesthetic reasons to some …degree. The most obvious examples of this are the English Bulldog and the Americanized German Shepherd. The few exceptions that remain are generally found in poorer countries that cannot afford dog shows and because they also cannot afford specialized veterinary care for many health problems that arise, thus the dogs bred in these countries tend to be heartier by necessity or simple natural selection. For example, German Shepherds of East German descent tend to have fewer health problems than those with an American heritage due to the impoverished conditions in which they were bred. In general though, size is the one trait that has a rather linear correlation with lifespan. The larger the dog, the shorter the lifespan and vice versa. ( Full Answer )

From my experience i find that Greek food is very healthy because it is very begetable-based, and the meat is usually cooked rather than fried. Also, Lebanese food is extremely healthy.

The healthiest food ever must be brown rice. The healthiest beverages are obviously milk and water.
Brands like Blue Buffalo, Innova/EVO, Wellness, Applaws, Orijen, Burns amongst others are some of the highest quality dry food you could feed your cat. The healthiest dry cat foods are the ones completely free of grain, corn and other cereals and have named meat content (labelled as Chicken, Turke…y, Rabbit, Lamb, Tuna, etc.) as the FIRST ingredient, or even better, the first three. Many higher quality brands use small amounts of rice or potatoes in place of the cereals, while still not wholly ideal (cats get very little, if any, nutrition from carbohydrates and cannot easily digest them), it is much better and easier on a cat's digestive system. Cats are strict carnivores, so get all their energy from Protein and Fat which is abundant in meat. Moisture is also a very important factor as cats are designed to get their moisture from their food (a trait that has been passed down from their wild ancestors), and therefore have a low "thirst drive" and will not often seek out water on their own. A cat fed solely on dry food can get less than half of its daily intake of moisture. A cat that is dehydrated for a period of time can contract Urinary Tract Infections, Cystitis and other problems. However, owners can combat this by feeding more wet food and purchasing a water fountain or leaving a tap on to entice the cat to drink. ( Full Answer )

I would say just vegies and fruit-do not eat anything greesy or anything that has alot of calories.

Probably the seared chicken wraps. The tandoori chicken is a personal favourite. CHips and ,ost burgers are full of fat and calories. In mcdonalds there should be a tick approved brochure and the meals in that are pretty healthy!
Beans are considered one of the world's healthiest foods. Limabeans are very nutritious full of fiber, protein and iron.
No. Popcorn is made of corn. Corn has a very bad amino acid profile and low micronutrient content.

The term "yummiest" can only be defined by you. But if you want something really healthy, try real oatmeal, not processed or anything. Not the instant oatmeal ones either.
Depends on what you consider fast food. But there are always healthy options. Say you go to "Triple O's" They have either a original or a chicken supreme that would be good choices. At McDonald's either a grilled chicken or just a big Mac. True burgers aren't healthy, but you can ask for no mayo to …reduce calories hugely! Never go with more then 1 patty, nobody needs it. If you want to go very healthy, go with a chicken burger (just make sure it's grilled and not fried). You could also have a veggie burger those are really healthy. Do your homework, research the sites that have done the scientific testing. The healthiest fast food burger are the ones you only eat only occasionally, not every day or every week. (even veggie burgers and chicken products can have high calorie, fat, and sodium content, you have to compare nutrition labeling), fast food is designed to get you to choose them over the one next door and they do that by adding the things that make the food taste better, fat, salt, and sugar. It's the only way they can beat the competition. See the links below for examples of sites that can be helpful. Keep in mind that the burger at the burger joint may not be your worst enemy. For example, McDonald's Triple Thick Chocolate Shake has the sugar equivalent of 13 McDonald's Baked Hot Apple Pies; and do you know if your burger joint butters their buns before adding the high calorie contents.

REAL FOOD! I suggest giving homecooked food to your dogs! Enough with the junk meat in gravy trash or brown dog biscuits that's called DOG FOOD! Try mixing boiled rice with some chicken and broccoli or carrots and make a balanced amount of however much your dog eats and see if your dog eats happier.… I read in a dog behavior book that said: "Before hiring a dog trainer, try changing your dog's diet. Why not give it some fresh rice, meat and veggies for one month and see if its behavior is more spirited?" Well, come on! MY dog is the pickiest eater, and SHE KNOWS the difference between fresh meat and fake! WE once bought some canned beef and she didn't touch it. She now continues to live happy and joyful eating real food, enjoying her meals and eager for the next one to come. So please even try it for a week and see for yourself! Dogs in the wild never ate smelly dry kibble or canned lamb in 75% water! Why is your dog getting cancer? MAybe it's all the preservatives in its food! So please, I'm not trying to shove guilt into dog owner's faces that feed their dogs dry dog food or canned food, but simply trying to make a point! Homecooked food is surely 100% guaranteed the most healthy life-preserving dog food under the sun! ( Full Answer )
Probably Fish. With the protein and the limited fat content with a ton of nutrients and vitamins like omega fish oils, it's hard to find something else that's balanced and super healthy for you.. Too bad I can't stand fish.

Cats are obligate carnivores, so the best cat foods are the ones with a very high, named-meat content. They should be labelled by source, such as: Chicken, Turkey, Rabbit, Lamb, Tuna, etc., as the first, or first two ingredients. Reject brands with ingredients such as Grain, Corn, Wheat Gluten, Cere…als and Various Sugars as these ingredients have very little or no nutritional value for cats. Wet foods are often much easier to find than dry foods with these specifications. The amount of moisture in cat food is one of the most important part of a cat's diet. Dry food contains no moisture, so is quite dehydrating. Cats are notoriously bad drinkers, even when they are thirsty. This is because they have evolved to get all their needed moisture from their prey (their ancestors were cats that lived in very dry and arid environments where water was hard to come by), so therefore have a low "thirst drive" and will not often seek out water on their own. This is a trait that has been passed down over the thousands of years. Canned or pouched food has anywhere between 60 to 80% water. Seeing as in the wild a cat's prey is around 65%-75% water, wet food provides a cat with more than enough water each day. Many brands of dry food, regardless of price, contain high concentrations of carbohydrates, or fillers; such as corns, grains, and cereals. Cats can't digest these, and often gets stored as fat or expelled. These fillers are used instead of meat because, compared to meat, it is less costly, and helps to hold the kibble together. However, some high quality dry food brands such as Orijen, Innova and Applaws are free of grains and cereals. Cats need meat-based protein, not plant-based protein. Cats will often overeat on lower quality foods because they are not getting all the nutrients they need, which can result in obesity and other health problems which can drastically shorten a cat's lifespan and overall quality of life. Lastly, the notion that dry food cleans a cat's teeth has not been proven. Kibble is hard and brittle, so it shatters at the tips of the teeth - providing little or no cleaning friction. Dental issues usually start at or under the gum line, so kibble is usually ineffective. Some cats don't even chew; they will just swallow the kibble whole. However, some cats will have perfect teeth while the dental health in others will deteriorate, no matter what food they eat. If a cat's teeth are to last through its lifetime, it requires regular dental care. Some owners brush their cat's teeth, while others give their cat a raw meaty bone (often in the form of a chicken wing or neck) once a week to keep their cat's teeth as clean as possible. For high-quality Cat food there is: Blue Buffalo, Felidae, Weruva, California Natural, Instinct, Prairie, Natural Balance, Eagle Pack, Wellness, EVO, Grau, Animonda Carny, Bozita, HiLife, Feline Fayre, to name a few..

Rats are omnivorous, meaning they eat both plants and meat. Although it is not recommended, small amounts of meat can be given to rats. It may make your rats aggressive towards other rats and their owner. There is not really a most healthiest food for a rat, but you should feed your rat lots of fres…h vegetables and fruits such as: Lettuce (Lettuce should be in your rats daily diet), carrots, apples, and raisins. You can also feed your rat small bits of bread, but don't give your rats too much. Small bits of cereal too is also good for rats. Giving the rats a few rice crispies (not the bars), is fine but make sure the ingredients are healthy in them and preferably for the rats, organic. In the feed you give them, make sure there is dehydrated corn and other vegetables in it, and a variety of seeds. Hope this helped! ( Full Answer )
