Hi, My name is Chloe and I am a two year old Maltese. My parents say I have an eating problem, but I disagree. I see anything resembling food and I eat it, no problem! I eat Toby’s left overs because he always leaves some behind. I eat crumbs on the floor. We have a large yard with a radio fence so I can run around with lots of freedom and eat lots of lizards, leaves, and even an occasional dumb bird or squirrel. Yep I don’t see the problem. OK , there may be one slight problem. It seems with all this eating and even though I run around a lot I may be gaining a little weight. My doctor says besides having an over active personality my metabolism is over active as well. You see what happens is if I eat the good dog food my parent give to Toby and Tasha I burn it off quickly. So I need a good dog food that helps keep my sugar levels even and doesn’t contain as much fat as Tasha’s and Toby’s food. You see there is no one single best dog food that is right for all dogs. We are all different. Tasha and Toby have certain needs and so do I. A balanced good dog food diet all dogs need consists of six nutrient classes: Proteins, Fats, Carbohydrates, Vitamins, Minerals and Water. These nutrients are essential for dogs to meet their daily energy needs, growth needs and to maintain their bodies.

The optimum diet and routine for your dog mimic the way Mother Nature intended us to eat — keeping in mind that a domestic lifestyle means your dog requires fewer calories than that of their wild cousins.

Obesity and diabetes are becoming common threats to the health of  dogs and feeding a carbohydrate-limited and low glycemic good dog food can make an enormous and positive impact on your dog’s quality of life.
