Waffles the Corgisaur
What To Feed Corgis
What’s the best food for corgis? Or the best brand? Should you make your own?

This is a hot topic.  The common consensus is that you should avoid foods with too many fillers such as soy, corn, wheat, etc.  ”They” also say that the first few ingredients should be meat products.  ”Better” foods will cost more, but you are paying for less filler, so the cost evens out.  There are certain brands to definitely stay away from (Ol’ Roy), but most are okay.  In any case, it’s at least good to inform yourself of the options.

Here’s a good tool to compare different types of foods: http://www.naturapet.com/pet-food-comparison

And a page to tell you what exactly all of these ingredients are http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=badingredients, in case you don’t know what “Poultry Byproduct Meal”, ”Peanut Hulls”, “Brewer’s Rice”, or “Animal Fat” actually are (none of them are good).

Advice from others:

I have some experience in figuring out what to feed animals, particularly dogs, so if you don’t mind I’d like to help that anon. Really, like was already said, most dogs will eat anything and be fine. And while you should definitely be willing to spend a bit more, you can still get decent stuff at the grocery store. If you’re unsure though, ask a vet. Things like your dog’s health, age, and even breed have an effect. Also, love Waffles. He’s so adorable!
