Dog Food Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best dog food?
We carry many high-quality dog foods, but it's very difficult to quantify just one as the best. Every dog is different, which means the best dog food for one dog may not be for another. We can't pick just one as the best or healthiest dog food, but we carry many top dog foods, like Acana, Open Farm, Stella & Chewy's, Big Country Raw and many more.
How much food to feed my dog?
All dog foods offer recommendations and feeding guidelines on the package. This is a great place to start, but might not be right for every dog. For more precise feeding recommendations, check out our Dog Food Calorie Calculator.
When to switch a puppy to dog food?
Around one year old is the standard to switch a puppy to adult dog food, but dog breed and size should be factored in. Large and giant breeds can keep growing until 2-2.5 years old in some cases, and switching them to adult food too early can hinder their development. If you are not sure, talk to your vet or breeder before making the switch.
Can I feed my dog human food instead of dog food?
It is not recommended to feed your dog human food instead of healthy dog food as most human food does not provide the necessary nutrients that dogs need in their diet. Human food can also be harmful and toxic to dogs, causing serious health problems.
Should I switch my dog's food if they are experiencing digestive issues?
If your dog is experiencing digestive issues, such as vomiting or diarrhea, it may be necessary to switch their food. However, it's important to do so gradually by slowly introducing the new food over a period of several days. If the digestive issues persist, it's recommended to consult with a veterinarian to determine the underlying cause.
Are there any dog foods to avoid?
There are certain dog foods that should be avoided, such as those that contain fillers, artificial preservatives, and mystery by-products. It's important to read the ingredient label and ensure that the first few ingredients are high-quality protein sources.

You should also think about the age, size and breed of your dog. Different life stages will require different nutritional needs. Pick a dog food brand that offers balanced proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and fats. Always take the time to check the ingredients for quality, whole food ingredients.
The primary ingredient in all dog food should be real meat, followed by a blend of vegetables, grains, and fruits. Try to avoid feeding your doggo any foods that contain by-products, excessive fillers and artificial ingredients. The best dry dog food Canada brands will list a suitable protein choice first followed by additional ingredients.
Remember, canines are carnivores which means that meat is their number one source of food.
Dogs require protein for optimum growth and muscle development. Ideally, the dog food should have chicken, salmon, beef or some other meat as the main ingredient and not simply poultry or meat.
Every dog is unique, and the type of food that works for one dog might not be ideal for another. You’ll also want to regularly assess the changing needs of your dog as your furry friend ages. Every life stage will require different food choices. At Homes Alive Pets, you'll find a wide selection of puppy food, adult dog food and senior dog food to perfectly match your dog's nutritional needs.
