Canine Nutrition

Knowing the right way to approach feeding your dog can be confusing. These days, the grocery market shelves are packed full of dozens of brands and even more specialty dog foods. If you have been trying to research the best dog food, you have probably read plenty of conflicting information as different brands of kibble compete for your dollars. 

Our dog nutrition section covers everything you need to know about how to feed your dog the best, without falling for advertising gimmicks. 

Learn about what the different brands have to offer, what kinds of people food are safe for your dog (and which aren’t!), and even how to bake your own healthy dog treats in your own kitchen.

Dog Food

The dog food market has exploded over the last decade. New brands seem to pop up every month. The good news is you have plenty of options to choose from. The bad news is that it can be harder than ever to choose the best for your dog because it can be hard to tell the difference between science backed nutrition and clever marketing. 

Our dog food guides will help you make sense of the world of dog nutrition so that you can make sound decisions to make sure your pooch is getting the best out of her daily regimen. 

Find the answers to common questions in our Dog Food articles, including:

Food Safety

Some people foods such as sweet potatoes, green beans, and dark leafy greens such as kale can be a healthy addition to your dog’s diet. On the other hand, some foods such as chocolate, raisins, and onions are toxic to many dogs and should be avoided at all costs. 

Here at WileyPup, we don’t buy into the “Never feed your dog people food” myth. However, we do think it is important to do your research to be sure a food is safe for dogs before you accidentally make a fatal mistake. 

Interested to learn which people foods are safe and healthy additions to your dog’s meal routine…and which are potentially toxic? Our Food Safety section has you covered.
