Dr. George Melillo in Reader’s Digest

Co-Founder and CVO Dr. George Melillo chats with Reader’s Digest on the best food for your dog.

“For adult dogs, you’ll need a diet that provides a balanced ratio of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. ‘Pay close attention to the labels on dog food and look for foods labeled ‘complete and balanced,’ which is the best indicator that a food has all the necessary nutrients,’ says George Melillo, DVM, Chief Veterinary Officer and cofounder of Heart + Paw. Beyond that, of course, you’ll want to take your dog’s special needs and preferences into consideration, as well as consult your vet. The expert-approved picks on this list will get you off to a good start and help your dog live a long, healthy life.” You can read more of Dr. Melillo’s tips below:
