How We Are Improving Our Dog’s Diet With The Best Dog Food

It can be overwhelming on where to start when searching for the best dog food and what to feed your pup, and more overwhelming to see what some healthier dog foods and products cost. Our dog, Daisy, is VERY picky, has very little teeth and has a very sensitive stomach, so we have been limited and going all raw is not of interest for us (personally). But I have researched great snacks, toppers, additives that you can incorporate into your dogs diet that are safe and healthy to improve their overall health. (We are not dog nutritionists, have not tried all of these and have collected this research from other sources. Please refer to a professional if you are pivoting your pets food for a balanced diet.)
