The State Of Dog Food Today

3 Things You Should Consider When Buying Dog Food

by Wes Chang

This is the first part in our series on the state of dog food today. This article introduces why it’s so crucial that we find a solution to dog food today for the benefit of our dogs, the environment and animals on factory farms.

Houston, we’ve got a problem.

Actually, we’ve got a couple problems -- but before we dig into the gory details, rest assured that we also have a solution, one that (we hope!) will help save the planet, nourish your furry companion, and mitigate a brutal, inhumane part of our food supply chain.

In this series we’ll explore the state of dog food today -- and why we believe it’s crucial to change the conventional norms for the health of your dog, the environment and all animals.

Now, let’s start by conducting a thought experiment:

You meet someone on a dating app, and they fulfill a checklist of the bare minimum requirements. They bathe regularly, they can hold up their end of a conversation, and they seem, for all intents and purposes, like a functional human adult. (Listen, it’s rough out there.)

However, as you get to know them better, you also discover that they think climate change is a hoax, they hunt, but needlessly torture the animal in the process, and their diet consists solely of Spam, Twinkies, and any other food with ingredients that can be described as “mysterious.”

To summarize? Yikes, yikes, and triple yikes. Unfortunately, it’s an apt analogy for what’s going on with your pet’s dinner. Mass-market dog food technically meets basic requirements for a “nutritional and balanced diet.” It also comes with a slew of hidden environmental, ethical, and health costs -- costs that are unavoidable because they boil down to the food’s fundamental product and processes.

We’ve put this series together to highlight the state of dog food today - and how we believe it’s not too late to make it better.
