Why Super Premium Food?

Posted on September 02 2020

Some dog owners are a bit skeptical when they consider purchasing super premium dog food. Dogs have been around forever, surviving off of whatever they could get their paws on...why introduce them to this higher quality food now? While we can understand that initial doubt, there are actually quite a few very important reasons to choose super premium dog food over standard options for your four-legged friend.

Treat Your Dog Like a (Human) Family Member

Let’s start by looking at it this way: what do we know about a healthy human diet? To be at our very best, we have to eat a well-balanced diet filled with the vitamins and minerals we need to not only survive, but thrive. If we stuff ourselves with low-quality food that isn’t nutritious, there is no way we’ll feel our best mentally or physically. Over time, the negative health impacts of eating poorly will only get worse.

The same exact thing can be said about our dogs. If we want our dogs to truly thrive, we will need to give them super premium, highly nutritious food. Yes, they’ll still technically survive off of lower quality food, but they won’t be functioning at their very best. If dogs continue to consume poor quality dog food, they’ll be deprived of the nutrients that they need to be at their healthiest. Over time, this can translate to negative effects on their energy levels, skin, weight, and body fat. It may also increase the risks of diabetes, cardiac disease, and other major health issues.

Super premium food – like what we offer at Top Shelf Dog – uses superior ingredients that are fortified with vitamins and minerals and crafted with your dog’s optimal health in mind. The high-quality ingredients you’ll find in Top Shelf Dog’s food are easier to digest and offer a wealth of benefits, including improved energy levels, a healthier coat, and stronger immunity.

Simply put, you (hopefully!) wouldn’t feed your child fast food and candy all the time. Why should it be any different for your dog?

What About Table Scraps?

Okay, we get why dogs need nutritious food. So why don’t we just feed them table scraps? If the food we eat is good for us, it should be good for our dogs, too...right?

While it may seem that way, this isn’t actually the case. In fact, studies have shown that feeding your dog human food is linked to obesity. Additionally, researchers have found that the table scraps we feed our dogs don’t meet the National Research Council’s micronutrient recommendations. This means the food we’re passing on to them likely isn’t actually doing much to improve their health.

If we want to give our dogs the best chance at a healthy and happy life, we’ll need to feed them super premium dog food that is specifically crafted with their unique needs in mind. We can give them wholesome, all-natural, and nutritious food. We just need to make sure we’re feeding them ingredients that are perfectly suited for their health – and that’s going to look a bit different than the food we feed ourselves!
