What do you look for in the food? A few questions to ask yourself when deciding on food such as California Natural or Innova, Evo, Canine Cavair, SOJOs. 

 Does your cat or dog require a special diet?

How old is your dog or cat?   Here at Funlovingpets.com our dog is young. Do you have a senior dog requiring a Senior dog food such as special diet for senior dogs of Canine Caviar.  Is your cat a kitten or a senior cat do you have many cats. Do they play or just hang out during the day. Innova Cat food has all the nutrition needed without the fillers.  Take a look at the ingredients in the cat food watch out for ash and other fillers. If you feed cat kibble they will need lots of water. If you feed them wet or canned food they will only drink a little water.

How active/ high energy is your dog or cat? Do you have a Greyhound or a Shepard, Golden Retriever, Terrier, Border Collie, Siberian Husky these all need a diet to accommodate their specific high energy needs.  Evo wild nutrition or Karma 98% organic dog food maybe just the right blend for your active dog. 

Does your dog (Golden Retriever, Chihuahua, Shitzu, Yorkies, Great Dane) need one or two ingredient food? As with babies when you are trying to decide if you pet has a food allergy or is sensitive to a certain food you start with one or two food items.  California Natural offers a lamb and rice mix that is very gentle on the dogs stomach. They also have a Herring and sweet potato mix good for the coat. Lots of Omega 3’s. The other option is to cook for your dog. The only problem is you need to have a balanced diet of the proper amount of protein and fat plus vegetables for your dog. http://funlovingpets.com/california-natural-lamb-meal-amp-rice-adult-large-bites-dry-dog-food.html.  If your dog gets lots of gas or upset stomach try a little pumpkin it works great. You only need a few tablespoons depending on the breed of dog or how big of a dog. 

Where do the ingredients come from of the dog food you decide on?  It is important to not only look at where a product is manufactured but where did the ingredients come from. Was the chicken raised in China. Is it wild salmon or farm raised. The sweet potatoes how were they dried? The beef bones or beef in the food where was the cow raised and butchered.  These are very important questions to be asking.  Think in terms of the pollution level in certain countries.

What will your dog or cat eat?  Do you have a finicky cat or dog? Try getting samples of the foods you are thinking of trying for your dog or cat. It is important to slowly change the food your dog or cat will be eating. They do have sensitive stomachs and will need to be gradually moved to a new food.  Many of the foods come in smaller sizes such as 6.6 pounds or 2 pounds to allow the gradual move to the new food.
