What's in your pet's food?

We all know how important it is for people to eat healthily and a lot of pet owners take this into consideration when feeding their pets. Of course, there are many people who feed the cheapest food they can find but when it comes to cheap pet food, you get what you pay for. However, there are also some 'premium' brand pet foods which are not as healthy as you'd imagine for the price you pay!
It can be hard to know what is healthy with regards to a cat's or dog's diet though. TV adverts try to sell us one brand, family and colleagues 'in the know' often have strong opinions and your vet may recommend something completely different.
It's worth while spending a bit of time learning how to decode petfood labels and using your new-found knowledge to see what your precious dog or cat is being fed.
And if you generally feed dried food to your pet, then have a look and see if that food is listed here .
You may get a nasty surprise as to the contents- I know I did the first time I checked.
