An introduction to pet food and supplies. What do I feed my pet?

Pets are more than just animals. They’re family members and friends. That’s why it’s important to provide the best pet food for them that we can afford, right? We’ll also give you an overview of the different pet food brands as well as some of the basic pet supplies you should own!

We all know how expensive pets can be in general – from vets to grooming costs, toys, crates and so on. But when you add in pet food prices too, many of us have a hard time keeping up with everything our furry family members need!

We’ve researched some of the most popular brands on the market today to see which one is a good buy without breaking your budget or making your pup sick!


Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.

Dog food

There are so many different dog food brands on the market, it can be hard to decide which one is best for your furry friend. Some of the most popular dog food brands include Royal Canin, Blue Buffalo, Taste of the Wild and Purina. All of these brands have different formulas, so it’s important to do your own research.

Cat food

Just like with dog food brands, there are a plethora of cat food brands to choose from. Some of the more popular ones include Royal Canin, Friskies, Iams and Hills Science Diet. Again, it’s important to do your research before making a purchase to make sure your kitty is getting the best possible food.

Bird food

The best kind of bird diet is one that has been made specifically for your type of bird. There are also pellets specifically designed to address certain conditions or deficiencies in a regular commercial diet. Commercial bird food is available in many forms, including seed mixes, pellets, nuggets, and crumbles. Some birds also enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables. Common bird vegetables include broccoli, corn, green beans, and peas.

Small pets food

Many people believe that rodents are the ideal pet because they don’t require much space, time or money. They can be taught to use a litter box and some like to snuggle next to their owners on the couch! When choosing a small pet food, it’s important to consider the animal’s age, weight and activity level. Rodents that are inactive or overweight may require a food that is lower in fat, while active and older pets may need a food that is higher in protein.

Fish food

Fish food is a cost-effective way to provide nutrition for your fish. It can be used as an alternative or supplement to live foods such as worms and shrimp, which may not always be available. Fish food comes in many forms: flakes, pellets, tablets (with added vitamins), and frozen cubes. The type of food you choose depends on the size of the aquarium and whether you have a variety of different types of fish.

Different types of pet food

There are a few different types of pet food on the market: wet, dry and freeze-dried. Wet food is usually in cans or pouches, dry food is found as kibble or biscuits and freeze-dried food is dried but can be rehydrated by adding water.

Freeze-dried food is obviously the most expensive of the three due to the fact that it has already been dehydrated. But some are okay with the price because it’s also super convenient – simply add water and let sit before feeding!

Wet food is not always as easy to find, but you might be able to find this great kind of pet food in some stores or online. Dry food is the most common type of pet food and can be found in most stores, while freeze-dried food is slowly becoming more popular.

What pet food should you buy?

That depends on your pet! Pets have different nutritional needs and some might do better on wet or dry food than others. You could always try all three and see which one your dog likes the best. Many pets will eat any of the types of pet food, but some could be picky when it comes to certain brands.
