Picking out the best pet food for your furry friend

Picking out the best pet food for your furry friend

Picking out the best pet food for your furry friend is a lot tougher these days than it used to be. CBS12's Eric Roby shows us why that's a good thing in today's Consumer Alert.

"Our pets are like our children," said Lawrence Carito. "We eat healthy, we want to give them healthy food too."

But with so many options... it's not always easy to choose.

Lawrence Carito with K9 Caterers says while pet food has come along way, it's still important to read the label.

"Lot less filler in there..."

Keeping in mind that ingredients are listed by weight.

"First ingredient you should be looking for is chicken, beef..."

Many brands are now offering alternative grains.

"Oatmeal, barley, you could have a brown rice..."

When it comes to dry versus canned food, experts say it's a matter of preference but suggest canned for cats because it's more hydrating.

One last piece of advice.. Look for the seal of approval from the Association of American Feed Control Officials. It certifies the food is considered complete and balanced.
