Quality dog foods

Our loyal loving companions deserve great dog foods

Give them quality food from a reliable source

With dogs being harmed in modern times from poor quality, cheap dog foods… we really need to invest a little time to find ones that are worthwhile for our loyal, loving companion! Many cheap pet foods are corn based. This is because of the affordability and availability of the corn.

Why corn causes problems in pet foods

I used to think the damage caused by cheap pet food was the corn’s fault, but no, it is more complicated than that. The corn when stored in bulk in the wrong conditions becomes unhealthy. When it is not dried out properly, or becomes/stays damp, will grow mold. These molds can be very dangerous and spread incredibly quickly. Brief exposure contaminates the bulk storage. But infestation can also spread rapidly and lead to issues.

These molds can be toxic and/or cause food sensitivities and allergies. The easiest way to avoid this risk is to avoid corn-based pet foods.

I will cover the dog foods, but first… some fun stuff!
