If you try to notice to the pet food you will definitely see two words which are Choice and Premium. These two words are very much common as far pet food is concerned. But how truthful every brand is using ingredients we don’t know. Because as per the rule no pet food can claim the ingredients. If you found the word Premium that does not mean this pet food is made with premium ingredients. This word ‘Premium’ is nothing but a marketing word.


Pet food does not need to pass FDA (Food and Drug Administration) that is why it is easy to use leftover human food as ingredients. It is not at all good for the health of a pet. If it is written as “Meat and Bones Meal” on the label then it may contain cow head, intestine or stomach of a cow. Some pet food may contain the drug like pentobarbital for euthanizing animals.


You should check the chemical preservatives too before you purchase one for your pet. You might get the word BHA/BHT anywhere, it is a preservative that is used to preserve fat. You should use a pet food where common natural preservatives are used with Vitamin E.


The best food for your pet is where human grade ingredients are used. You must want to know how you will find the one as you know manufacturers don’t label everything. So all you can do this to call them and ask to provide detail or you can ask them whether they are APHIS European certified. That will be enough to know their authentication.


Minerals are a very important component which must present in pet food. Iron, Zinc and Copper are common minerals which should have in the pet food. You can search “Chelated Copper” or “Copper Proteinate”. Presence of this is enough to know the quality of the pet food.

These all are the aspects you should take care before you select a food for your pet. Read reviews too.
