When it comes to the food you feed your dog, sometimes cheaper is not always better. It is always best to feed your dog a dog food that has meat such as chicken, turkey, or fish as its first ingredient. Also make sure the brand you choose has the appropriate amount of protein in it. If your dog is a lazy dog and a low energy dog, you do not want to feed the dog extra protein. In the long run, you can save money by giving your dog a good quality dog food verses a low quality dog food.
