PetScoop -- Ten Tips To Help Pick the Best Dog Food

iamscommpfingred.jpg

What is the best dog food for your dog? That depends, as each animal is an individual. You have to pay attention to your dog's fur, skin and overall health and experiment with different foods and ingredients to find out what works best.

We like these tips from Dog Food Factoids: Ten You Need To Know! | The Millionaire Nurse Blog:

  • Dry dog food is the most economical.
  • Dogs have food allergies, pay attention and adjust as necessary.
  • The ingredient list on food bags matters-learn what to look for.< Click above graphic for common pet food ingredients. /li>
  • Not one commercial dog food on the local Wal-Mart shelves is on any 'best dry dog food list'.
  • Just because your dog will eat it, doesn't mean it's good for him.
  • There are more dog foods available than paparazzi following Prince William and the new bride.
  • Dogs are often over fed by their loving owners.
  • The FDA is responsible for dog food safety.
  • There are quite a few common people foods dogs should never eat.
  • Price does not always mean it's a better food.

PetScoop -- Annual and Monthly Costs of Pet Care

new_pet_adoption.jpg

It's probably gotten to be a cliche now to say that pets are part of our families. They are, at least for most of us, and along with the love comes the bills. ASPCA | Pet Care Costs has calculated that first year costs for pet food and supplies run between $1,300 and $1850 for a dog, depending upon size, and around $1,000 for a cat. Fish are by far the most economical, coming in at $35/year.

These figures include pet health insurance, an investment which relatively few pet owners actually make. Considering Pet Ownership? Here's How Much to Budget | MintLife Blog has taken their numbers and created a nifty graphic, breaking the annual and Mint-user monthly costs down by category. They don't include the initial capital investment such as cage, cage, carrier, leash, aquarium.

Risk of Salmonella Contamination from Dog and Cat Food and Treats

catdogfoodbowls.jpg

Canned and dried dog and cat food can become contaminated either during production or storage. Pig ears and similar treats that involve dried animal parts can cause salmonella infection in people. Salmonella Lurks in Pet Foods Too | NYTimes explains:

Dried pet food typically is heated to high temperatures that kill bacteria before it is shaped into different shapes of kibble. But dry food is not necessarily produced under sterile conditions, and contamination can occur at various stages in the production process, veterinarians say. Canned food, by contrast, is vacuum-sealed and sterilized but can be contaminated after it is opened if improperly stored or handled.

Pig ears, which are frozen, cleaned and flavored but not cooked, may become contaminated from the original animal carcass. One study in Canada found that 51 percent of pig ears purchased at stores contained salmonella; another study also found high rates of contamination, 41 percent, in pig ears sold in the United States.

Moral of the story -- everyone who lives or works with pets should thoroughly wash their hands before and after handling pet food.

Organic Diatomaceous Earth -- Natural Topical Pest Control Powder for Pets

diaearth.jpg

Diatomaceous earth is formed from soft, siliceous sedimentary rock crushed into a fine light-colored powder. It is derived from freshwater sources and does not pose a significant health risk to pets or humans. Due to its absorbency, it is used as a primary ingredient in a type of cat litter.

Because food-grade diatomaceous earth is harmless to all animals, fish, and birds, it makes an excellent natural insecticide. Use it as a topical dusting powder for your pets with fleas, ticks, lice and other external pests. The D.E. (Diatomaceous Earth) scratches the insect's waxy outer shell causing death by dehydration.

This is a refreshing change from toxic pesticides. Get your own Diatomaceous Earth.
