Are we feeding our pets the wrong food?

We feed our pets all kinds of food, for all kinds of reasons, but is what you're feeding them doing more harm than good?

Veterinarians say brands are not as important as knowing whether or not your pet food manufacturer scrapped by the required ingredients.

Every pet food should have an Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) statement clarifying formulation versus feeding trial.

Next make sure you're following the serving size. Vets says use an actual measuring cup to prevent weight gain.

Bad fats and mega calories are what we often share from the table and veterinarians say that is a big no.

To get your pets back to a healthy weight go for regular walks and look for lower calories foods if the scales doesn't budge.
