As a caring pet owner, you want your dog to have a balanced and healthy diet. In the newest installment of a column on dog food, we dig into guidelines set up by the Association of American Feed Control Officials.
The long-term goal of this column is to teach interested dog owners how to formulate safe and wholesome complete and balanced home-prepared diets for their dogs. We will eventually cover raw and cooked diets, diets that use raw bone as a calcium source, and diets that use other sources of calcium, as well as diets that contain grain and diets that are grain-free. The one thing that all of these diets will have in common is that they will all be complete and balanced as defined by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).
