In The Know: Your Dog's Food.

Jul 4, 2008
This day and age, people are very skeptical as to what they may be feeding their pets as recent health scares regarding what is in the food and what is and isn't being done to ensure the safety of the food. Many consumers are very leery of buying off branded foods or manufactured dry kibble, opting instead to buy natural organic dog food that is made fresh on a daily basis, or make their own from a homemade dog food recipe.

To ensure the safety of their products, and verify the nutritional quality of their foods, many manufacturers (and many countries' laws require) place a nutritional facts label on their packaging that puts the general nutritional content of their food in a conspicuous place in order to ensure that comparisons can be made between brands and that foods are healthy and hearty for a dog.

An issue with this however, is that there is no way for a Dog Food Report to be given for a producer. Also, with many manufacturers making no quality checks on their food, the resulting lack of oversight should there be an issue with ingredients or the manufacturing process might not be found until the product is in the hands of the consumer.

With this kind of limited oversight in the wake of the most recent dog food poisonings many governments have begun seeking ways to regulate dog food manufacturing. Many have decided upon coming up with a report that would list the quality of the ingredients of the food allowing the consumer to see what was in their pet's food along with some verification that the ingredients are fresh. In this case the cost of peace of mind would be welcomed.

Providing a Dog Food Report would allow the average consumer to have a look at what exactly is being fed to their pet. The report would contain a quality report of the ingredients of the kibble, bringing peace of mind to the consumer and guarantee the freshness and safety of the food they are purchasing.

The Dog Food Report would also give a nutritional value check of the food by an outside testing facility or government lab. The facility would verify the claims for nutrition, and would update a package with the newest report information. This would give a great deal of power to the consumer when buying thier dog food.

Another great benefit is the ability for the consumer to comparison shop, putting all food makers in a line up for all to see. This kind of comparison shoping could drive the dog food manufacturers to create better quality food.

A Dog Food Report is critical for quality assurance to remain high among dog food manufacturers and such a report would provide the measures needed to improve the quality of foods sold around the world. This report would bring the kind of peace of mind that dog owners deserve when buying food for thier pets.
