Packaged food vs home food

Thursday, September 08, 2011

We prefer giving Christie, my cat, home food as the same brand isn’t easily available in the market and it’s also more expensive. There’s a certain assurance with feeding pets home food, as the food is fresh and doesn’t contain preservatives, one is also aware of the ingredients as your pet could be allergic to, it could contain those very ingredients. That is harmful, as then your pet gets habituated to pet food and it becomes difficult to wean them off it. Our vet also recommended us to feed Christie home food.

I prefer giving my pet home food as it’s more tasty, how boring it must be to be given the same food daily! Hence, I prefer home food. As far as the nutritional value of packaged food
is concerned, dog food is supposed to be more nutritious and supposed to contain all the required ingredients, while when I feed my dog, I could be missing something out.

We opted to give my Cocker Spaniel, Taaz home food as we assumed it would be healthier. We didn’t know how healthy packaged food would be and never even tried feeding it to her.

There are several claims about packaged food containing the required nutrients, but one never really knows… as most of these could be marketing gimmicks. I prefer home food as I know for certain what my pet is eating, packaged
food according to me, is unreliable and contains preservatives. The way I see it, there’s no other alternative to freshly cooked tasty
home food!

I definitely prefer feeding him packaged food, as sometimes one tends to miss out certain ingredients while feeding their pets which packaged food could contain. In the process, the pets end up lacking those nutrients. Although it may seem boring, at least I know I’m feeding him what he requires and over time they get used to eating packaged food.

Prem Narayan

I work in a call centre and don’t return home until 2a.m. By the time I wake up its 11a.m., this hardly leaves me with any time to cook. Plus, I cannot give my pet
home cooked food for one meal and packaged food for next. Because, once they get used to fresh home food, they’ll never eat packaged food. Hence, I’m better off feeding them packaged food.
