All pet owners want the best for their pets, especially those they have adopted through shelters. Pets provide companionship, a source of unquestionable love, and even help when service animals are needed. One of the ways to keep our pets healthy and increase their life span is by providing them the best diet.
1. Select “cat” or “dog” and the type of food you want to compare. Choices are “all”, “dry”, “canned”, and “raw”.
2. Select up to three items from the drop down list of pet foods. Highlight your selection.
3. Click “add”. A photo of the product will appear in the box on the right and the product details will automatically fill in to the chart below. You can click “remove” under a product photo to eliminate it.
4. In the chart below, categories for comparison include “meat or fish as primary ingredient”, source of ingredient (US/ Canada or certified ingredients), whether the food contains products from China (some of these have been poisonous), details about other specific ingredients (byproducts, grains, fruits/vegetables, fillers), and a complete list of all the ingredients.
You can deselect and reselect previous items, too, as you compare foods available for your pet. The hart can be particularly helpful if your cat or dog has some specific dietary needs due to a medical condition. There is also a “Shop Now” button under products sold by 1800petmeds so you can see sizes of products and prices the company offers.
If you decide to buy, you can easily add a product to your cart. Products selected can be further investigated with product photos, descriptions, and details on the individual product page.
Right now, they are offering a code for a $5 discount on orders through October 31, and shipping is free on any orders over $39. This is a great way to compare pet foods to help select the right one for your pet.
