Default All About Dog Food

By definition, dog food is any plant or animal material intended for
consumption by dogs or other canines. Dog foods, like dogs, come in a
huge variety.
Some people make their own dog food or feed their dogs meals made from
ingredients purchased in grocery or health-food stores; many others
rely on commercially manufactured dog food. There are also vegetarian
dog foods for owners who do not want their dogs to consume meat
products. There are also dog foods specially formulated for dogs
allergic to common ingredients such as chicken, wheat, or corn.

following types: dry, semi-moist, and moist. Wet, or canned, dog food

extrusion and baking. Special dog foods given as a reward, and not as
a staple, are known as dog treats.
There are also varieties of dog food commonly labeled as "human-grade
