Dog Food

A complete guide to dog food and treats: wet, dry, raw and cooked.

Dog food is a contentious topic among pet parents, and the subject of many a debate here on Dogster with good reason – we only want the best for our dogs. A healthy dog is a happy dog, and our dog food section is here to help you make informed decisions about the kibble you pick up at the store or the meals you prepare from scratch at home. Learn how to deal with a finicky eater, get advice on the steps to take if your dog weighs more than he should, and learn about common ingestible hazards and poisons.

How to Tell if a Dog is Overweight

Your dog definitely should be narrower at the waist than the hips and chest. You should be able to easily feel the ribs, but not see them. However, each dog is different. Standard recommendations are a good place to start, but each dog must have its food and exercise adjusted to its individual needs. You might have your vet confirm your judgment next visit.
