Why Compare Dog Food Brands?
Over the years so called premium dog food has not changed much. Current dog food regulations still allow manufacturers to use ingredients that you would never knowingly give to your dog. We believe your dogs should get the best products science and nature has to offer so your dogs can live the longest and healthiest life possible.
Please consider basing your purchasing decision on the quality and effectiveness of the ingredients in the dog food. Compare the dog food brands you use with other dog foods to determine if it delivers the proper nutrition that your dog needs and deserves. Don’t be influenced by clever marketing techniques and attractive packages that will not benefit your dog. Learn how to compare what is in your dogs food.

Don’t see your brand of pet food listed?
Here’s how to compare your brand to Life’s Abundance Health Food for Cats and Dogs.
1. Get your bag of cat food. Look for the Ingredient Statement on the label.
2. Read the first 5 ingredients. They play a significant role in the nutritional make-up of a cat food.
What are the protein sources? We believe the primary source should come from quality animal protein, not vegetable protein or grain. Foods that list 2 or more grains in the first 5 ingredients may have more vegetable protein than animal protein.
Life’s Abundance primary protein is chicken meal. Why? Because chicken meat contains a certain amount of moisture; however, chicken meal is a concentrated source of chicken protein because most of the water has been removed. Therefore, it stands to reason that you get a greater “protein content” in 1 pound of chicken meal versus 1 pound of chicken.
What about grains? Two or more grains listed in the first 5 ingredients means your food may have more vegetable protein than animal protein. Grains such as soy, corn, corn gluten and wheat gluten can be difficult to digest, which means less nutrition and more clean up.
Life’s Abundance lists only 1 grain in the first five ingredients, ground brown rice.
Are there by-products? Some manufacturers consider by-products inferior sources of protein and, depending on the source, they can be difficult to digest.
Life’s Abundance does NOT contain by-products ingredients.
What are the fat sources? Some fats are better than others. We believe the primary fat source in catfood should be animal based because animal fats contain a profile of fatty acids that are easily metabolized and thus are generally more available to the body.
Life’s Abundance contains chicken fat.
3. Does your food contain other health-promoting ingredients, such as:
Vegetables, Beet fiber, Antioxidants, Proteinated Minerals, Bacteria cultures.
Your dog deserves the very best food. How does your food measure up?
