Here at Winding Creek Ranch, we realize that choosing the right dog food is one of the most important decisions we can make. Not only does it affect our dogs and their ability to produce healthy puppies but it will affect those puppies for years to come. How is that? Every new owner will ask us, "What food have you been feeding my puppy?" We know if we tell you we've been feeding Brand X, then you will go out and buy Brand X for your puppy. If Brand X has the nutritional value of cardboard, well then, your healthy puppy will not stay healthy. He will, in fact, develop many issues ranging from minor to serious but all expensive to treat and emotionally exhausting. Winding Creek Ranch knows they would be a major contributing factor to the poor health of your dog. It is our responsibilty to educate our puppy families and to make sure your puppy is started on the absolute best food available. We are proud to feed Life's Abundance Premium Health Food for Puppies and Adult Dogs. Through much research, we have not been able to find any food that tops this one. While there are other good dog foods, there are reasons for using Life's Abundance that just can't be beat. We are going to list those reasons and then please, keep reading so we can talk to you more about diet and nutrition.

We see a lot of dogs out there who are suffering complications due to nutritional deprivation and food allergies. Their immune systems are not working properly due to malnutrition, toxic, grain-filled foods and vaccinosis (see THIS LINKregarding vaccinosis). The general public knows very little about the canine diet and what is really in our commercial dog foods. Unfortunately, the average family veterinarian also has very little knowlege when it comes to canine nutrition. Where are you to turn? Well, there is a wealth of knowlege on the internet for sure. Also, you can certainly look at a dog food label and ask yourself, would I eat this? One thing I can tell you for sure, if you've heard about a dog food on TV, it is probably not good a high quality food. The most heavily marketed dog foods are sold at your local, superstores and groceries. Those are the ones you should avoid. I'm not going to openly condemn any brands on my website but I am thinking of a particularly popular food that vets commonly recommend and sell. It is not a good food at all. You think you can trust the vet to recommend the best and they might think they are. They probably don't know any better. Also, this certain brand sends them on some amazing trips or so I've been told. What my point is......you are in charge of your dog's health. Don't fall prey to the marketing giants out there. They sell cheap food for cheap prices and your dog's health will certainly pay the ultimate price.
Learning to Read Labels
1. Meat should be listed first. Chicken meal vs. chicken: chicken
"meal" has had the water removed so is concentrated.
2. Dog food should have absolutely NO wheat (#1 allergen), NO
corn (#2 allergen) and NO soy (exception - soy derived lecithin
which actually has health benefits). Grains such as these have no
place in a dog's diet so unless your dog is actually a cow in
disguise, stay away from these ingredients.
3. Animal by-products are not a desirable source of protein. They
include parts of an animal other than the meat so you can use
use your imagination.
Since ingredients are listed on the ingredients list in order of weight, it is important to read your label to know what is in your dog's food. If the first ingredient is a whole meat instead of a meal, then it would not be first on the list if the water were removed. You do not need to have the highest protein available. A dog's food should have several high quality sources of nutrition listed on the label. Again, when you look at the ingredient list on the back of your dog's bag of food, you should ask yourself, "Would I eat this?"
The bottom line is this...if you feed a high quality food such as Life's Abundance, your dog is going to have the best shot at a long and healthy life. You will have reduced vet bills and will have the confidence in knowing that you are doing everything you can for your dog to insure he has the best chance at life. If you like to compare prices when shopping for dog food, remember to compare the daily feed amount. When purchasing a 40 lb bag of food, one brand can cost a great deal more than the other but what if the more expensive food tells me to feed half as much as the other brand? Well, that's simple math. There is a lot to consider when judging one food against another and cost of feed is not cut and dry. We were pleasantly surprised when we did an in-depth cost comparison between our past brand of food and Life's Abundance. We feed at least 1/3 less of Life's Abundance. That means less waste for us too. Regardless of which food you decide is the best food for your dog, don't settle for less. You won't save money, in the long run, by skimping on your dog's food.
