Every pet parent has found themselves in a predicament when it comes to feeding their pooch—is homemade food better and safer than dog food? While homemade food is economical and leaves you with more control of the ingredients going into your pet’s tummy, it might not be the most nutritious option. When cooking for your dog, it is very easy to mix up the carbohydrate, protein and fat ratios. Every dog’s nutritional need varies based on its age and level of activity. Besides that, many ingredients considered healthy for humans are not as beneficial for dogs.
But what about packaged dog food? Can it really be trusted and considered safe?
We understand that as a pet parent, you only want what’s best for your furry baby. At Pedigree, everything we do is for the love of dogs and we are proud of our products that are backed by passion, dedication, science and expertise. That’s why this World Food Safety Day, we’re elaborating on why you should put your trust in Pedigree dog food…
#1 Nutritionally-balanced meal
With over 80 years of experience, we have crafted products that align with canine dietary guidelines—be it our dry dog food, wet dog food or our dog treats. Pedigree dog food is made with the right balance of vitamins, fibre, calcium and protein thus ensuring it is nutritionally balanced as per international standards (AAFCO and NRC). We make sure to use high-quality, safe ingredients that are approved by Pet Food Regulation. To maintain safety, nutritional efficacy and palatability, we also put our products through advanced testing facilities.
#2 Supports 5 signs of good health
We only use dog-friendly ingredients that support the signs of good health. We use special vegetable oils that have proven to give dogs a healthy coat. We use digestible animal protein to strengthen your dog’s muscles. Pedigree dog food also has excellent digestibility with fibre from vegetables and cereals. This also results in smaller, firmer stools. We also make sure to maintain optimum calcium levels to promote bone and dental health. Lastly, we make sure our dog food includes antioxidants and Vitamin E to support your dog’s immune system.
