Top 5 Types of Commercial Dog Food You May Want to Consider Feeding Your Corgi

Welcome to Kraken Corgi! We offer dog care tips, dog training advice, and more!

Dog Food Raw Food DietA few years back, if you had a dog, you went to the store and bought a sack of dog food and fed it to your dog. These days there are many different dog food choices when it comes to feeding your Corgi. Commercially prepared dog food wasn’t available until the mid 1800’s and most people really couldn’t afford to buy dog food so their dog ate table scraps or hunted for food.

Picking out a commercial dog food these days can be an overwhelming task. There are so many brands of dog food on the market, each claiming to be the best. The following is a list of popular dog foods available for your Corgi:

Organic Dog Food

As you probably know, most commercial dog foods on the market contain chemicals and pesticides. By choosing to feed your Corgi organic dog food, you will be feeding your dog food which is chemical and pesticide free. You should be aware that many times the word “organic” may be misleading.  Be sure to read the list of ingredients in the organic dog food prior to buying the food.

Preservative Free or Natural Preservative Commercial Dog Foods

The vast majority of commercial dog foods contain preservatives, which are really chemicals like BHA, BHT, and ethoxyquin. These chemicals are added to dog food to help prevent the dog food from spoiling and to prolong the great taste that dogs love. There are some dog foods which use natural preservatives like Vitamin C and Vitamin E, which will be listed as ascorbic acid and tocopherols and the ingredients.

Prior to purchasing what seems like a natural or preservative free dog food, make sure you read the list of ingredients. Confirm the preservatives are natural and not artificially synthesized.

Another option is a dog food which doesn’t have any preservatives at all. Preservative free dog foods must be sealed properly in a dry, cool, pest free place and purchased in small amounts so the food keeps fresh.

Vegetarian Dog Foods

If you are a vegetarian, then you may want to pass on your dietary beliefs onto your Corgi. There are also health reasons why you many want to consider feeding your Corgi a vegetarian diet. Vegetarian dog foods are nutritionally balanced and contain all the nutrients and vitamins your Corgi needs to be healthy. There are several companies which manufacture veterinarian dog foods. These types of dog foods may contain pea protein, potatoes and oatmeal instead of meat for a source of protein.

Raw Food Diet

Some Corgi owners choose to feed their Corgis a raw food diet. Many people believe feeding a dog a raw food diet is the best way to feed a dog and the most natural way because this is the way wild dog and wolf specias eat. We haven’t been able to find any scientific facts to back this theory but it does make sense.  In 2006, the United States government reported 16% of chickens in the USA contain Salmonella. A recent study of 25 commercial available raw food diets found that 20% of raw food diets contained Salmonella, and 64% contained Escherichia coli. If you are thinking about feeding your dog a raw food diet, please do a little research and read this article:  Raw feeding
