Dog Food That Is Worth It

Whenever I used to look at the expensive brands of dog food in the past I had no real motive to buy it. There would be advertisements that stated that this was premium dog food, but there was nothing behind the marketing that made me believe it. When I compared the active ingredients on the labels I couldn’t see much of a difference between this and the other dog food on the market. Recently, there has been a surge in premium dog food that is really worth the price that is paid. This is why more people are willing to spend the money. They can finally see the ingredients and better health that is associated with these dog foods. Canines need quality foods, but the owners have to be in charge of making sure this happens. The Beneful brand helps people out because this company provides the dog food that is fundamental and in the puppy stage, and it also provides food that is important for adult dogs as well. The wide range of variety covers everything in between the puppy and adult dog stage. Beneful has performed well on petco because it caters to different brands. Purina has made sure that customers are pleased with the ingredients that go into the mix. This is a big deal because their are so many customers in the past that just didn’t know what the ingredients were. Today I can proudly say that I know my dogs eat vegetables and I know that are having real beef and chicken. I couldn’t really say that before I started using high quality dog food, but now I know. It is a pleasure to see on wikipedia how these brands have transition over the years. Purina, for example, has grown after buying Merrick Pet Care. The Beneful brand – that is also under the Purina umbrella – is growing with more than 40 different varieties as well. This is the indication of real growth in the dog food industry. Dog owners have to stay mindful of this. The prices will go up, but this increase is totally worth it.
