Hey Everyone! Welcome to the Theory of Pets Podcast.

I am your co-host, Connor Knight, and the President of Top Dog Tips.

Today we are going to brush up on some controversial topics and questions.

Commercial Dog Food Recently, commercial dog food has been intensely scrutinized for its process of providing cheap and affordable dog food at scale.

To do this at their level, many believe the dog food companies cut corners and lack quality control.

We will go through some tough questions, and you'll hear direct answers from a veterinarian, so stay tuned!

Here are some of the questions we tackle:

How did homemade dog food come about?

What is the difference between raw dog food and homemade dog and cat food?

What is considered healthier between the two?

What are your thoughts on carbohydrates being included in their diet?

What are the important vitamins and minerals that need to be included in those diets that commercial dog foods claim to have?

What is the issue with commercial dog foods?

Is the controversy valid that commercial dog foods lack qc and cut corners on protein sources?

What are your thoughts on the past decade of controversy that commercial dog food has come under?

What exactly do dogs and cats need nutrition on a general rule of thumb?

What are extreme home recipes?

What are middle-of-the-road home recipes?

Does a dog need carbohydrates?

How much more expensive is it for owners to switch to homemade dog food or raw food compared to kibble?

What are your thoughts on some of the higher-end kibble dog food?

Do they hit all the nutrients that a dog needs?

What are your thoughts on the synthetic vitamins and amino acids added to commercial dog foods?

Me: I am not a vet but I took a course that was designed by a veterinarian that taught me how to read dog food labels and talked about how these synthetic vitamins and minerals work and how they act differently than the real vitamins and minerals dogs and cats get in food.

What are the health benefits of homemade dog and cat food?

The best advice, work with a nutritionist. https://acvn.org/

What are the potential health downsides of homemade dog and cat food?

I learned that salmonella already exists in the gut of some healthy dogs, so would you say outside of that is there really any risk to the dog?
