How can I feed my dog the healthiest food for them? - Haines Road Animal Hospital

It’s important to work with your veterinarian to figure out how many calories your dog should have. And then you should also choose a good diet. We need to make sure that we choose a complete diet for your dog since that is the only source of nutrition they get day in and day out. So some of the diets that I like the best would be Royal Canin, Purina, and Hill's.

How can I feed my dog the healthiest food for them? - Advanced Animal Care

The best place to start is to talk to your veterinarian. Some dogs have special dietary requirements that your veterinarian can help you determine. Other dogs do just fine on food that you can get from the pet store. Still, others need diets for their GI tract, kidneys, or things like that, so talking to your veterinarian first is always recommended. But if you have a happy, healthy dog at home, I know my personal favorite is the food you can get over the counter made by Purina, so their Purina One and Purina Pro Plan line, or even Hill's. Hill's Science Diet line and Royal Canin have over-the-counter lines that you can get at the store as well.

And, the reason why I like those brands so much is that they make the veterinary diets that we prescribe for your pet. So, if they have GI issues or kidney issues or liver issues, or things like that, I trust them to recommend them to you for your pets when they have those needs. I also trust their regular diets that are over-the-counter.
