Brands of Dog Food

The first commercial dog food was made in England in the mid-19th century. It consisted of a sort of biscuit made of various grains, vegetables and meat. Thirty years later the product was introduced to the U.S. with other manufacturers following in short order with their own formulations of various biscuits and dry kibble food. Canned foods followed after WWI with the introduction of canned horsemeat for dogs, followed by the development of the expanded-type of dry dog food and then the newer soft-moist products. Today we have a much better understanding of dog’s nutritional needs, as well as far more choices of commercially prepared foods.
