What is the Best Dog Food?

There are so many choices out there for nutritional dog food, but when it comes to choosing what is best for your dog, nutrition needs to be at the top of the list.  Your dog is part of the family, and like any family member you want to ensure she or he gets the best quality of food. 

When a pet gets the care needed, it leads to a happier and healthy life.  This includes an active lifestyle, lots of love and attention, and a carefully managed diet.  At Bloomfield Feed we have teamed up with Purina foods because we have trusted the quality of their feed for decades for our pets and livestock.

A complete and balanced nutrition dog food, made from all-natural ingredients is a key to a healthier and happier life for your dog.


Dog Nutrition:  What should you feed your dog?

Every breed of dog is different, and one kind of food is not always right for all dogs.  The nutritional needs of dogs are based on their age, weight, breed, level of activity and their preferences. 

If you have a very active dog, or a working dog such as those used for assistance for people with special needs or herding dogs, you will need to buy a dog food that has more protein and fat.  This ensures their muscles are well-maintained.

Larger dogs may also get joint pain, so picking a dog food that is designed for larger breeds and supports their joint health is a must.  If you have a small or toy dog, she or he will benefit food that is designed for their smaller mouths and healthy nutrient mixes. 

A healthy diet for dogs includes a balanced mix of proteins, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, and fats that are good for the skin and fur. 

We love our dogs and want what is best for them.  Buying a dog food that is balanced, filled with the right levels of nutrients and one that is made from natural ingredients is key.  Also check to see where the pet food is made.  Like anything else, if something is produced in Canada, it has to meet the strict guidelines of the government.  According to the Pet Food Association of Canada, there are several laws and government services to protect the health of your pet, such as the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.  Read more about how your pet food is protected here.

At Bloomfield Feed, the dog food we sell is made in Ontario, Canada.  We have given our dogs on the farm the same food as we sell and have done so for decades.  Our dogs are working dogs that help with herding and more, so we rely on them as much as we do on all our help.  Purina is the brand we trust.


Setting the Standards for Nutritional Value

Purina continues to set the standard for balanced nutrition for our pets.  They blend nutrients that provide the best support for your dog’s health.  Learn more about the purpose of their ingredients here.

What we love about Purina dog food is that they source the ingredients directly, rather than using a pre-manufactured ingredient that many other companies do. 

Since 1949, our family has trusted Purina products for our pets and livestock.  This is why we love to share the benefits of the wide range of dog foods we sell in our store.  So much research goes into the quality and mix of nutrients and ingredients and the results are proven over time.  Our animals thrive on the same food we sell in our store.


You love your dog – Find the best Dog Food

Your dog deserves the best.  Nutritional dog food is only good if she or he eats it, so consider your pet’s preferences.  There are many reasons to change your dog’s food, and this may be the week to do so! 

According to the experts, these reasons include a dog’s age, activity levels, weight, and overall health.  As a dog ages, so does her or his health needs.  Adapt the food to your pet’s needs and she or he will love you for it – plus be much healthier!
