We love our pets. Sometimes we spoil them rotten. Other times we have to be the responsible one (No you can’t have the whole bag of treats, you will throw up). It may not be fun to be a responsible parent at times but it certainly is best. Here’s another tip for becoming a responsible pet parent for your dog.

3. Feed your dog the appropriate food.
All foods are not created equal. If you have not heard of most of the ingredients in your dog’s food, you may want to look into buying a new brand. Turner Bell says the first few ingredients should be a meat or protein, as well as plant-based foods such as carrots, peas, and other vegetables.

Another incentive? “The higher the quality of the food, the less comes out the other end,” said Turner Bell. “It works for you and the dog.”
