How To Decode Pet Food Label

Dog Food Label consists of different terms that
are really significant to understand. In our
previous blog, 5 Top Things to Decode a Dog Food
Label (Part I), we have discussed about different
things that need to be studied before purchasing
dog food for your pet. You can check the previous
blog here Let us continue further with other
important things, which according to an expert
vet are requisite to consider in a dog food label
3
  • Find out the Recommended Dosage of Food that
    Needs to be Provided to a Pet on a Daily Basis
  • You will see daily recommended dosage for your
    pet on the dog food label.
  • This recommended dosage depends on whether your
    pet is an active puppy or a geriatric dog.
  • According to expert vets, the daily dosage
    recommendations should not be taken as a pinch of
    salt.
  • These guidelines are based on average dogs. If
    your pet exercises a lot than average pet, then
    the recommended dosage will not work for them.
  • In this scenario, you will have to contact your
    vet and then provide the correct dosage of food
    to your pet.

  • Look For Natural Dog Foods
  • You will find the dog food labeled as natural
    that means all the ingredients have not had any
    chemical alternations according to FDA
    guidelines.
  • Although natural food can be very helpful, be
    careful about holistic label.
  • If the label says organic it should consist of
    at least 95 organic ingredients excluding added
    water or salt.
  • If it says Made with Organic Ingredients it
    should consist of at least 70 organic
    ingredients excluding added water or salt.
  • If a manufacturer showcases the product as
    possessing some organic ingredients but do not
    make up to 70 of the total then they are
    connoted as organic in the ingredient list but
    there is no seal on it.

5
  • Ascertain AAFCO Nutrient Profile
  • According to vets, dog food is generally marked
    with one of the two AAFCO labels, All Life
    Stages or Adult Maintenance.
  • If it is marked All Life Stages then it has
    been prepared to meet the needs of a growing
    puppy or a lactating dog.
  • This type of food is higher in calcium,
    phosphorus and calories.
  • On the other hand, adult pets that are healthy
    should eat adult maintenance food.

6
  • Locate the Nutritional Adequacy Statement
  • When you look at the pet food label the one
    thing that you need to locate is the nutritional
    adequacy statement.
  • The statement would look like this Name of
    the diet is formulated to meet the nutritional
    levels established by the AAFCO Dog (or Cat) Food
    Nutrient Profiles for life stage(s).
  • If you are unable to locate it try to find out
    food that meets the minimal nutritional needs of
    pet as per AAFCO (Association of American Feed
    Control Officials).
  • If you find any of these two it means that the
    food has all the requisite nutrients as per AAFCO
    feeding trials.
  • Costly brands like Nestle and Hills will have
    this on the dog food package.

  • Show Prudence While using Supplementary Food
    Sources
  • According to expert vets, dog food that is
    labeled as supplementary is not a comprehensive,
    well-balanced diet.
  • Hence, unless your vet approves it, you should
    not feed the supplementary food sources for an
    extended period to your dog.
  • If you have any doubt, consult your vet
    immediately.
  • A very basic thumb rule while going through pet
    food labels is that the first few items of any
    dog food will reflect the most significant
    ingredients.
  • Read them carefully so that your dog has a long
    and healthy life!!
