Q. I have a 7 yo mixed breed. I feed her Fresh Pet rolls with chicken, brown rice and vegetables. Does this food supply her with all she needs.
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. It looks like FreshPet is made and sold in the U.S., and laws here require that all commercially available dog foods be formulated to meet minimum nutritional levels. There is an organization called AAFCO that determines what commercial dog food must have in it in terms of macronutrients and acceptable ingredients. You can read more about them at aafco.org.
Some people also like to add an omega 3 supplement (a product formulated for dogs like 3-V caps) to their pet's regimen for skin and coat health.
