Editor's Notes

July 26, 2019:

Like human children, dogs need plenty of attention as well as a balanced diet to grow up big and strong. Similar to human-grade foods, dog foods are not all created equal, so it takes time and thought to find the right nutritional balance for your pooch, regardless of his breed, size, age, or weight. Also, it's important to realize that no two dogs are going to have the exact same reaction to the same ingredients. Some dogs may have allergies or even require an entirely vegan diet due to medical conditions. The focus here is on organic foods that make use of naturally-sourced and humanely-raised ingredients to ensure a balanced diet for your furry friend.

Dr. Harvey's Canine Health Miracle, for example, gives you a base of holistic grains and dehydrated veggies, which can be combined with a protein of your choice, so it's easy to maintain control over Fido's diet. This is helpful if your pet needs to lose a bit of weight. I also included Health Extension Little Bites for its dedication to teacup and miniature breeds as well as the omega-3 and 6 fatty acids that work to keep a pet's coat shiny and healthy. While there's nothing wrong with traditional grain-free dog foods consisting of dry kibble, I see plenty of value in using dehydrated formulas, such as the Honest Kitchen Whole Grain, and raw foods, like the Smack Raw, to maintain as many nutrients and vitamins as possible during mealtimes. This is not to say that dry foods are inferior, but considering your pooch might have a sensitive stomach, just know that these options are available to you. I also included the Primal Nuggets due to its availability in several flavors and for its inclusion of ground bone for a source of extra calcium. I added Lily's Kitchen Proper for its low-fat formula, glucosamine and chondroitin for supporting strong bones and joints, and prebiotics for improved digestion. Finally, the protein-to-fat ratio in Newman's Own Adult is an ideal choice for maintaining a pet's weight, while its crunchy consistency helps keep your pet's teeth pearly white. All profits from sales are also donated to charity.
