Should My Dog Eat Canned Dog Food

Published on November 30, 2007 by in BARF

The Importance of the Analysis
 
My question for today – and it would challenge the intelligence of even a 5th grader!!!! Would you buy a canned dog food product with the following analysis?

  • Crude Protein……………..10.0%
  • Crude Fat………………….. 6.5%
  • Crude Fiber………………… 2.4%
  • Ash…………………………. 4.3%
  • N.F.E……………………….18.8%
  • Moisture……………………68.0%

Looks like a typical canned dog food label doesn’t it?
 
Let’s take a look at the ingredient label that produced this analysis:

  • 4 pairs of old work boots, leather
  • 1 gallon of crankcase oil, used
  • 1 pail of crushed coal
  • 68 lbs of water

Of course to mask the real perceived value of these ingredients the label would no doubt have a description showing a greater than average nutritional value:

  • 12 lbs of beef tanned outer coatings
  • 1 gallon of processed oils
  • 1 pail of crushed carbon based fuel supplement
  • 68 lbs of water

A most novice customer may be enticed, because of price, to buy such a product. It’s cheap! The analysis looks fine! But it won’t give any nourishment to a dog.

The lesson is – We need to study the analysis, understand the ingredient list and the quality of the ingredients in order to compare price and nutritional value. The most critical point is to determine which product will give you the most nutrient utilized diet  that is absorbed in the body in the shortest period of time.
