The Science Behind Pedigree Dog Food

The nutritional requirements of a dog vary throughout its life and are governed by factors such as age, reproductive status, level of activity, state of health and environmental conditions. It is important to give your pet the required amount (and correct balance) of energy and essential nutrients that can only be found in good quality pet food as home food often lacks in vital nutrients.

Indeed, it is important to know what you're feeding your dog. But knowing what the ingredients are is not the same thing as knowing their nutritional value and how they help your dog. So let's take a look at some of the good stuff we use in our pet food -
