Your Dog Food Questions Answered

Wet food, dry food, large dog formula, puppy chow. Does it really matter what kind of food I buy my dog? Yes, it does, and we are here to help you navigate this ever expanding sea of dog food options.

Have you found yourself having more dog food questions lately? Over a few short years, the choices in the pet food isle at the grocery store have doubled, or maybe even tripled. Is that all just big manufacturers trying to confuse you into buying and spending more?

Well, no. The truth is that two things have contributed: recent trends in healthier eating for humans have led many a pet parent to wonder what they can do to treat their dog as one of the family. And advances in veterinary science have taught us all much more about what dogs should and can eat, and how to handle issues like dog food allergies.

Pet food manufacturers have responded with more options, so why not take advantage? Maybe you count yourself among those pet parents who want to know what goes into every scoop of dog food -- after all, your dog looks to you for care and protection. While we may not all have the time to decipher labels as we shop, it's always a good idea to be better informed.

Here are the top dog food questions -- and answers! -- to help you navigate all those options.
