Every dog owner wants their four-legged family member to be healthy and happy. Long-term wellness is built on a foundation of proper nutrition, and it starts with your dog’s food. With the endless selection of brands, formulas, and combinations out there, it can be hard to decide what is best for your pup. Even those companies that tout themselves as healthy dog food brands have contradicting information on the optimal diet for your dog. Take the guesswork out of picking a healthy dry or canned dog food, and choose Zignature Pet Food.
What to Look for In Healthy Dog Food?
Wandering through the dog food aisle at any pet store can be intimidating, especially for a new dog owner. How do you know what is actually healthy dog food and not just some gimmick? The key is to do a bit of research before you purchase. Before making a decision, ask yourself the following questions:
- Does the healthy dog food contain byproducts?
- Can I recognize the ingredients listed on the bag?
- What percentage of the protein listed is actually in the food?
- What is the source of the protein?
- Do I need healthy canned dog food? Or is dry food preferred?
- What are my dog’s taste preferences?
After you make the switch to a different brand, observe your dog’s skin, coat, energy level, and digestive health. Do they seem comfortable? Are they excited at mealtime? Does their coat appear shinier? It may take a few months to determine if the healthy dog food you chose is the right fit.
How to Switch to a Healthy Dog Food Brand
If you have decided to change your dog’s diet, you must do it gradually. Slowly incorporate the new food into your dog’s existing diet. Replace ¼ of their food with a new formulation for a few days. If tolerated, increase to ½ and repeat. After a week or two, you should be completely switched over. Changing your dog’s diet too fast can result in vomiting or loose stools. Even with a new diet, your dog may still have gastrointestinal symptoms. After ruling out medical problems with your vet, you may need to try a different healthy dog food formula.

Allergy-Free Dog Food
Many dogs suffer from dry coats, skin irritation, and gastrointestinal distress, all symptoms of food allergies and intolerances. The quickest and easiest way to eliminate or minimize the impact of allergies is a change in diet. Our limited ingredient philosophy eliminates the most common allergy-causing foods like chicken, corn, wheat gluten, soy, and potatoes. Before purchasing healthy dog food, check the ingredient label located on the side or back of the bag. Other healthy brands of dog food often contain at least one of these inflammatory ingredients. As evidenced by our customer testimonials, a switch to Zignature has resulted in happier and healthier dogs.
