The Best Diet for a Healthy and Safe Dog

At Scoop Soldiers, we’re not only concerned with what comes out of your dog, we’re also concerned with what goes in. The two are absolutely related, and our team members have unfortunately witnessed some unhealthy-looking landmines over the years (which we of course flag for customers right away). Many factors contribute to the heath of a dog and his or her digestive system, but what goes into the belly is the most crucial! Follow our guide below for quick tips on what to look for in an excellent dog food, and what to avoid:

What to look for:

  • Whole Proteins:
    • Fish, chicken, beef, duck, liver and eggs
  • Whole Grains:
    • Oats and Quinoa
  • Bonus Healthy Nutrients:
    • Omega-3 fatty acids and glucosamine
  • Meaningful Labels:
    • Certified Organic
  • Natural Preservatives:
    • Vitamins C and E
  • Fruits and Veggies
    • Sweet potatoes, peas and carrots

What to avoid:
