There are endless varieties of what’s billed as the best dry dog food, much of it crammed with exotic-sounding ingredients that are fancier than what most humans have for dinner. Dog owners have to choose among stacks of lyrically named sacks of dog food, which boast blends of ingredients like black Angus beef, wild boar, lamb, heritage pork, bison, and free-range turkeys. But reading dog food labels sucks, especially when it all sounds delicious, and it can be hard to tell whether premium, all-natural, limited-ingredient, grain-free, “healthy” dry dog food is actually better for your pup or just a bunch of marketing fluff.
So what, actually, should the best dry dog food contain? Please ask us, we would be happy to have that conversation.
