Which Diet Dog Food Provides Results?

Making sure that your dog is at a healthy weight is important to your dog's health. Dogs that are obese tend to have complex medical problems, but these problems can be avoided with a proper diet. There are so many different diet dog food brands on the market, it's nearly impossible to select the right one for your dog. Below, you will find some ways of selecting best food for your dog, along with some top-rated diet dog food brands.

Diet Dog Food Ingredients to Watch Out For
Many commercial diet dog food brands contain ingredients that are not good for your dog's health. Read each label carefully before choosing the right food for your dog (this includes diet dog treats). The following things should not be included in your dog's food:

  • Vague Fat or Protein ("animal fat" is not specific enough)
  • By-Products
  • Artificial Colors
  • Artificial Sugars (sugar should be kept to a minimum)
  • BHA and BHT (chemical preservatives)

You'll find that most supermarket brands of dog food will include some of these ingredients. If possible, consider investing in your dog's health by purchasing a high-grade dog food as opposed to a grocery store brand.

Top Diet Dog Food Brands
It is possible to feed your dog a diet dog food that doesn't contain harmful ingredients. The following brands are some of the best on the market.

  • Healthwise
  • Evo
  • Innova
  • California Natural
  • Wellness

All of these top brands manufacture weight loss or weight control varieties. In order to make sure that your dog loses the right amount of weight, follow the feeding instructions listed on the back of the dog food bag carefully. It is easy to over-feed your dog, but this should be avoided at all costs.

Which Diet Dog Food Works Best?
This question cannot be answered indefinitely. Since all dogs are different, your dog might respond better to one food than another. The best way to find out what diet dog food will work for your dog is to try a few different kinds.

Most specialty dog food shops will gladly give out samples of diet dog food. If you can obtain a few samples, then you can experiment. Start by mixing a bit of the new diet food in with your dog's old food (this will prevent a drastic change from occurring too quickly). Within days, you should be able to determine what food your dog prefers the most.
