There are many different options when it comes to feeding your best friend. It largely comes down to what’s right for you and of course, what’s right for your dog! But, before you start choosing the right dog food, here are some things you should know.
Dogs are omnivores, which means they eat meat and plants. But, they are strongly biased towards eating meat. That’s why all our dog food products start with meat at the core. Because dogs also need the right mix of calories as well as macro and micro nutrients, we add extra ingredients to create the right nutritional blend of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals with minimal to no processing.
At Paringa, all our dog food is created with two key aims in mind:
Happy dog – The food tastes great, is easily digested and helps your dog maintain great health.
Happy owner – If your dog’s happy then so are you, right? But we also make sure that our products are convenient and easy for you to use too.
Some pet foods are labelled as Complete Food or Complete and Balanced which means that the dog food will deliver the full nutritional requirements to the dog. This can be the only food they have.
Other pet foods are labelled Complementary Food which satisfy some but not all nutritional requirements. Good examples are treats.
It’s fine to feed your dog a combination of different foods as long as they’re getting the majority of their intake from complete and balanced sources.
