Are There Bad Preservatives in Dog Food?

Gone are the days when pet owners would simply pluck a bag of kibble off the shelf and pour it in their dog's bowl. Back in the day, you only had a few different choices to pick from—wet food? Dry food? Large or small breed? Puppy, middle-aged or senior?—but most brands offered approximately the same options to owners. Not anymore.

Yes, really! You might need to give it a few tries if your dog is new to produce. Any crunchy or chewy vegetable can also spark a cat’s interest.
