Tip #4: Chew on Organics
Last year's massive pet food recall stunned pet owners, but the dirt on dog food doesn't end there. Even if it's not contaminated with melamine, conventional pet food is often made from low-grade animal byproducts, including meat from diseased livestock. Choose certified organic pet foods, which contain no pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or artificial ingredients. The Humane Society has tips for deciphering ingredients labels. If you're nutritionally inclined, you can make your own dog food. Always consult your veterinarian first to determine your pet's specific dietary needs.
