The Dangers of Cheap Pet Food

The Dangers Of Cheap Pet Food

We know you love your pet, but do you know just how dangerous cheap pet food can be for their health? 

Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell for humans and pets alike what foods are “low-quality.” You might notice that your dog or cat loves the cheap stuff regardless and will beg for it day after day, but that doesn’t mean it’s good for them.

Why Cheap Pet Food Can be Dangerous

There is a principle called “pay me now or pay me later,” introduced by an old TV commercial that was applied to car maintenance. For instance, you can go a long time without replacing air filters or oil in your vehicle, but eventually, those small things can cost you much more down the line. Eventually, bad oil or filters can damage important parts of your vehicle and repair can be costly or even cause your car to be totaled. 

Unfortunately, if you feed your pet low-quality foods, this can be the same story for them. You can unknowingly be shortening your pet’s lifespan and potentially cause serious complications down the line. An animal that isn’t receiving necessary nutrients will undoubtedly develop health issues. 

Unhealthy pet food can cause these complications and more:

  • Constipation due to unhealthy fiber levels
  • Organ failure
  • Laziness/lethargy/lack of energy
  • Depression
  • Unhealthy fur coat
  • Tooth decay and infections
  • Overfeeding
  • Increased medical costs

Cheap dog food is typically inflated and diluted by cheap ingredients such as cornmeal, wheat, or white rice, which provide no real nutrition for your beloved pet. 

This may not only lead to some of the complications listed above — but also overfeeding. This is because your pet’s body will still crave the nutrients they need, and they may not feel full and end up overeating, which can lead to obesity and increased feeding costs.
