Several weeks back, I wrote about foods that were dangerous for dogs.
But, I’m an optimist, so of course I had to follow up with GOOD things to serve your pup!
BIOethics Premium All-Natural Pet Food is a Los Angeles based pet food company. They are on a mission to, “offer fresh, locally sourced, all natural pet food.”
Susan, the recipe creator at BIOethics Pet Food, was gracious enough to fill us in on the dog food skinny.
I feed my dog this food, so yes, it is GOOD stuff.

What is the philosophy behind BIOethics Pet Food?
BIOethics Pet Food’s philosophy is to change the way our pets are nourished.
Fresh, holistic, nutrient dense ingredients are used to make our food that is high in bio-availability to be absorbed into the body for optimal health.
Dollar for dollar in pet food cost, you simply get your money’s worth feeding our nutrient dense food.
We try to eat healthy, yet many of us do not apply the same thinking to our pets.
Most people have no idea what’s in their pet’s food. You know exactly what you are feeding with our food. Every ingredient is a known ingredient with a host of benefits. There are no mystery ingredients. Every ingredient used is there to do good, not harm.
This is food we developed to better feed our own pets for years now and continue to feed. We LOVE our pets. We know many who love their pets too. They need to feed their pets better in order for their fur kids to live longer and healthier (lives).
What is the one ingredient to avoid when choosing your dog’s food?
Corn in all its forms and various names.
Corn is a low nutrient food to the human body, so same to a dog’s. It is loaded with carbs and is known to slow metabolism. It is the main ingredient in kibbles and it’s a cheap ingredient to include.
Are there any health benefits to feeding your pup wet food over crunchy kibble?
Feeding kibble, while convenient and slightly less costly, offers poor nutritional value.
It’s a waste of money as there’s simply not enough natural ingredients to offer good nutrition.
The process of making kibble cooks away any inherent nutrients.
Vitamins need to be added in to deem it food. Flavors and fat are coated on each kibble to make it addicting. Simply put, kibbles are junk food.
Canned food for those more “fortunate” pets is only slightly better. However, how could a diet consisting of food that’s been packed in a can be good?
We try not to eat canned food ourselves due to the high sodium content, preservatives, low nutritional value and simply flavorless “dead” taste. Yet, many feed their pets every meal, every day out of a can.
Can you explain the benefit of including apple cider vinegar in the food you prepare for dogs?
When was the last time you saw a dog eat an orange?
There is not enough acidity in the foods that dogs do eat. A low acidity/high alkaline diet is prone to crystals/stones forming in the urinary tract.
Kidney disease is common in pets partly due to their low acidity diets combined with dry food (double whammy).
Apple cider vinegar offers many health benefits to the human body. These benefits also apply to dogs.
What advice would you give dog owners that have overweight dogs?
STOP feeding kibbles. Switch to a high quality wet food and over a short period of time, the weight will come down.
What Are You Feeding Your Pets?
There you have it!
Whether you have a puppy or a more mature dog, serving them quality dog food is the best for their health.
Serving your pooch a balanced, healthy diet is one way to prevent issues like:
*urinary tract issues
