Blue Buffalo Pet Food: A Healthy Choice
One of the best things you can do for your beloved pet to ensure a lifetime of good health is to select a high quality, nutritious pet food. With the variety of dog and cat food available, choosing the best food for your pet can seem like a daunting task. The simplest thing you can do is start by reading the label, which will list ingredients in order of weight. Focus on the first few ingredients, which make up the bulk of what is in the food, and make sure that the first ingredient listed is a specific, named real meat such as chicken, turkey, salmon, lamb or beef for example. Look for a form of healthy carbohydrates such as brown rice or sweet potatoes and a healthy source of animal fat such as poultry fat and fish oil. Ingredients to avoid in your pet’s food include preservatives, meat by-products, artificial colors and flavorings, and corn, wheat and soy which are fillers.
PetMeds now carries a line of healthy Blue Buffalo all-natural pet food manufactured in the United States. If you look at the label, you will see the first ingredient is real meat (de-boned chicken, lamb or fish), and there is never any chicken or poultry by-product, corn, wheat, soy or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Blue dog and cat food also has wholesome whole grains and fresh-cut vegetables and fruit. If you look closely at Blue Buffalo dry food formulas, you will see small dark pieces; these are “LifeSource” bits which contain a blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to ensure your dog or cat gets optimum nutrition.
Since our pets can’t select their own food, it is up to us to choose for them. If you wouldn’t eat it, should you feed it to your beloved pet? If you decide to switch your dog or cat to a more nutritious food like Blue Buffalo, just remember to make the switch gradually to avoid digestive upset.
