SlimDoggy Dog Food Database
Today is another “Blog the Change for Animals” day, a special event sponsored by Be The Change 4 Animals. It’s a day when pet bloggers & pet lovers come together and blog about their favorite animal-related cause in an effort to raise awareness and understanding.
In the past we’ve written about two of our interests, pet obesity awareness and support for senior pets. Today I wanted to focus on our efforts to provide useful information to educate pet owners about the contents and quality of their pet’s food.
If you read SlimDoggy, you know that every Tuesday we write about pet food ingredients or something related to pet food. We are currently on our second trip through the alphabet identifying an ingredient commonly found in your pets food and examining why it’s there, is it needed, is it potentially harmful or truly beneficial? We examine ALL of the ingredients, not just the first few because it’s that stuff at the bottom of the list that you can’t read that is usually most harmful.
We’ve built a database of dog foods that covers over 3,000 pet foods and treats. You can search the database by brand, by name or by ingredient. This is really useful if your dog has some type of food allergy or sensitivity. You can ensure that the food you are going to buy doesn’t contain that ingredient. Here’s a screen shot of the food record for Spring Naturals Salmon dry food.
Why are we writing about this today? What does this have to do with Be the Change for Animals? Well, we’re passionate about the importance of feeding your pets a healthy diet and shocked at the lack of centralized information to educate consumers. We know that that there is a direct correlation between what and how much you put into your dog’s mouth and how long they will live and how healthy they will be. By providing pet owners with information and the data on their pet’s food, we believe that we can help all dogs live the longest and healthiest life possible. It’s that simple.
In the very near future, we will be publishing an updated data set with even more foods, along with a new and improved food evaluation and ranking system. We will also soon be publishing a similar tool for cat food on our sister site, SlimKitty.com.
