Remember your dog is primarily a carnivore so don’t build the foundation of his dog food around carbohydrates and vegetables. Many commercial dog foods are full of cheap grain fillers, artificial dies and flavors.
Food items to avoid feeding your dog
- Fake Dog Treats (Dog treats that look like bones, bacon or any number of tasty morsel but are made with grains and fillers are terrible)
- Pasta and bread (Both are high carbohydrate dense food sources)
- Hotdogs (These are highly processed and full of fillers and chemicals that are not good for your dog.
- Sweets (Candies, chocolates, doughnuts and other assort sweet snacks. All these will help feed yeast in your dog’s system and could lead to a yeast infection.)
Hot dogs a chuck full of cancer causing nitrite. Heres a list of some of the additives in an average hotdog “sodium lactate, corn syrup, dextrose, sodium phosphates, sodium diacetate, sodium ascorbate, sodium nitrite”, yum! And this is people food that is held to a higher standard.
The best thing to do for your dog and yourself is to become a label reader. If the label is full of chemicals, dies and other assorted ingredients you can’t pronounce, don’t feed it to your dog.
