Here at Kelton’s Pet Food Company we strive to offer you the best selection of premium dog food choices in Rutherford County. We have the very best brands to choose from and a knowledgeable staff to help you find what you’re looking for. So you may ask what is premium dog food? Premium dog food is how it sounds, high quality dog food. All dog foods vary in the quality of ingredients used as well as the nutritional value. When you’re looking at premium dog foods you’re typically looking at companies that have much higher standards in both the ingredients used and nutritional value.
It’s important to understand why premium is better for your dog. A dog’s nutritional needs are based on age, activity level, temperament, breed specifications, environment and physicality. If you’re unsure what your pet’s specific needs are in their food the best thing to do is contact your veterinarian. Premium dog foods typically have higher quality sources of protein, added antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and no artificial dyes.
Using these better ingredients generally means better contributions all around to your dog’s health and digestion.
Comparing premium brands to most economy brands, you’ll find that the nutritional value per kibble bite is much higher in premium dog foods. This means you’ll actually need to feed your dog less of the premium food than the economy brands. There is a lot less waste (and less poop) when using premium dog brands. Compare the back of the bags to see the recommended feeding guide for each brand, you may be pleasantly surprised to find that the premium foods may actually be less expensive and healthier for your dog!
