Foods To Avoid

At Fantastic Fur, we stress the importance of feeding your dog the right foods. Corn and wheat are two main aggressors which create problems in dogs of all sizes. As well as most supermarket brands, corn also features in expensive brands available from your vet, such as Hills Science Diet and Iams. We have noticed clients that have switched their food to either a grain-free or simply removed the corn and wheat, all ear infections and other chewing on feet etc went away in a matter of 10 days.

Feeding dogs doesn't have to be expensive, just keep it natural. Your dog will feel and look better! You will notice the remarkable difference in your pet, by the simple act of providing the pet with a good quality, meat-based diet.
