When I first brought home my dog Ape, I was sure premium dry food was the best of the best.
But in reality, the kibble I was giving him was actually filled with all sorts of harmful ingredients.
Thankfully, my friend is a certified ANIMAL nutritionist and has taught me tons about the right way to feed my dog, and her secret is Spot & Tango.
Since switching to Spot & Tango, I've actually seen the real difference healthier ingredients can make. Here's what you need to know:
Stick to high-quality ingredients.
Spot & Tango delivers food that uses 100% whole ingredients with all the benefits of fresh ingredients just gently dried using Spot & Tango's unique Fresh Dry™ process. This maximizes nutritional integrity, so your dog will have more energy and reap the benefits of a healthier diet.
Their fresh food recipes are cooked in small batches in a USDA kitchen and their UnKibble recipes are not extruded and contain no meat meals or powdered "mystery meats."
Buy human-grade only.
Many types of dog food are classified as "feed-grade" which means companies can legally use the meat from dead, dying, diseased and disabled animals to make the food. Yikes!
Spot & Tango uses only 100% fresh, human-grade ingredients and contains no artificial preservatives, fillers, or additives, and are GMO and hormone-free. No harmful ingredients like traces of euthanasia drugs or chemicals/food dyes appear in human-grade dog food.

Watch out for the ingredient listed as "meal" on the label.
"Meat meal", often called chicken meal or beef meal is just another way of saying "rendered" meat - the by-products or meat from fallen animals. Ingredients that show up in "rendered" meat might include materials like plastic, tumours, feathers, and even roadkill.
Beware of the hot-extrusion process
Most kibble is made with a process known as hot-extrusion. The process of extrusion uses high pressure, heat and a pre-mixed dough. Once it is cooled, the kibble is then sprayed with a coating of flavor and fat. This process strips the food of it's vitamins and nutrients. Spot & Tango do not use a hot-extrusion process to make their UnKibble, instead they gently dry it at a low temperature so the ingredients stay fresh and nutritious.
Understand the ideal portions for your breed and age.
It is well-known that health affects lifespan and a dog that is at a healthy weight is more likely to live a longer life than an overweight one. Many dog food brands give you a ballpark range for your dog or just classify dogs as adults or puppies. There are many more factors that constitute an ideal diet besides just weight range, and Spot & Tango understands that.
Take their quiz to tell them all about your dog from their health requirements. Traits - like age, activity level, health issues, and how much your dog eats are all considered. No matter what age your pup is, Spot & Tango takes everything into account when building your dog's personalized plan. And they can adjust your plan as your puppy grows
Beware of preservatives.
Kibble and traditional dog food are often filled with artificial preservatives and chemicals in order to stretch out its shelf life for months or even years ( real food should not last this long!). Some of these artificial preservatives are the same chemicals used in pesticides and even in the production of rubber. Spot & Tango delivers directly to consumers so there's no need for harmful chemicals that can pose a risk of toxicity to your dog. Plus, no more lugging a big sack of dog food home!
Know the foods that are safe to feed your dog.
Everyone knows you shouldn't give your dog chocolate, but do you know what foods are safe and actually healthy for your dog? Spot & Tango does!
The Beef & Barley UnKibble contains only Beef, Barley, Flax, Carrots, Green Beans, Beef Liver, Beef Heart, Beets, Cranberries, Rosemary, Kelp, Salt, Mixed Tocopherols (natural source of Vitamin E), Vitamins & Minerals.
