When it comes time to select the right dog food for your pet, there are several options that could be considered to be the best. While there is no overall winner, a high quality dog food that is free of meat meal, bone meal and byproducts is ideal. You may want to select a food that is specially formulated for a breed size, activity level or stage in life. Also, making home made dog food is another excellent option. By using high quality, human grade ingredients, you can be sure your dog is receiving the best nutrition possible.
