7 Nutritional Facts for Your Dog Worth Barking About
Every day, we hear from consumers - offering notes of love, sharing photos and asking questions. Some questions arise more often than others.
To share our love of dogs, nutrition and families, we've selected our seven most common questions to share with you. Curious about nutrition, training or lifestyle stage topics not covered here? We'd love to hear from you.
1. Why You Need a Super Premium Dog Food.
Compared to some less expensive brands of food you may feed your best friend up to a 1/3 less food by volume with a super premium dog food like Bil-Jac. Your dog will enjoy the better nutrition, outstanding health and unbeleiveable taste may not need to visit the vet as often!
2. All Protein is Not Created Equal.
Real chicken and chicken organ meat are among the most nutritious sources of protein for your dog. We start with real fresh chicken ingredients, sourced ourselves and made in our own facilities; we have the utmost confidence in the quality of our ingredients. We know of no other dry dog food that actually tells you how much real fresh meat is used to make their food.
3. What to Look For in a Puppy Formula.
During the first year of their life, most puppies grow to full size, so feeding them a high-quality food is key! Look for small kibble that's easy to chew and digest — and one that can be mixed with water to help wean puppies away from mother's milk.
4. What is Beet Pulp?
Beet pulp is an excellent source of fiber and a prebiotic that helps support healthy digestion. The pulp is white (not red) and contains no sugar. It’s more expensive than other fibers. For sensitive dogs we make a special Sensitive Solutions Formula.
5. Food Allergy or Food Processing?
True food allergies in dogs are very rare. It isn't necessarily an ingredient that causes sensitive reactions. How ingredients are processed is likely more important.
6. How to Select a Reduced Fat Formula.
Reduced Fat dog food formulas should taste good to successfully help your Best Friend achieve and maintain a healthy weight. It is important to select a formula that is lower in protein and fat, but still contains fresh protein sources, and high quality and digestible real chicken.
7. The Scoop on Gluten Meal.
Some dog food companies use gluten meals in their food to boost the protein level while they control costs. At Bil-Jac we use real fresh chicken protein because your dog evolved from carnivores and the amino acids in real meat are optimal proteins for your dog.
