4. What are byproducts in my dog’s food and should I avoid them?
Meat byproducts in your dog’s food could include blood, bone, brains, udders, intestine, and a few other parts and organs. Hairs, horns, teeth, and hooves are excluded as byproducts.
Veterinarians leave it up to pet parents if they want to serve up meat byproducts. Liver, which is common byproduct in dog food, is rich in vitamin A. It is more valuable for dog mom and dads to talk to their veterinarian if they believe a particular byproduct does not sit well with their pup.
