Home-cooked meals, unless prepared by veterinary nutritionists, are deficient or unbalanced in nutrients required for a pet’s overall well-being. Some pet parents feel homemade dog food is fresh and less processed, but they miss out on the fact that this does not constitute complete food for dogs. It is best to feed your pet prepared pet food for it offers guaranteed nutrition, palatability, digestibility, safety, and convenience. In addition, it also offers diversity without loss of consistency and caters to the specific needs of the dog. Furthermore, it is more cost-effective in the long run.
