AN ANIMAL expert has shared how pet owners should be looking out for a hidden code on the packets of dog food.
The pro revealed that the specific phrase that is featured on the boxes of dog food indicates exactly what you’re feeding them – so should be paid attention to.
TikTok’s @allaboutdogfood specialises in “helping find the best food for your best friend.”
And in one of their most recent videos posted to the social media platform, one of the brand’s employee’s did exactly that.
Pointing to a box of dog food on the shelf, he explained: “Anywhere where you see the word ‘with’ – so here ‘with tasty chicken and country vegetables’ – this basically means it has to have a minimum of 4% of that ingredient in there.
“And they’ll have to indicate on the label the actual percentage whenever they use that.”

Continuing to use that specific box as an example, the man continued: “So, ‘with tasty chicken’… let’s see – composition, of which, 4% chicken.”
Lifting the lid further on the rule, he added: “So that’s what you tend to get.
“If it says ‘with’ you’re probably going to find the absolute minimum that they’re required to put in there of 4%.”
@allaboutdogfood then urged their 25k followers to “look out for the word ‘with’ when checking your dog’s food labels.”

And the advice was welcomed by many pet lovers, who said they wanted to make sure they were giving their pooch the best they could.
One of their TikTok followers wrote on the video, which has been liked over 30k times: “Been using your website for years now – lifesaver.”
Another said: “Thanks for this – I’ll be more cautious moving forward.”
While a third wrote: “This is great to know. Thank you.”
Meanwhile, countless others said they’d turned to raw food so they could know exactly what was in their dog’s bowl.
One person explained: “That’s why mine is on a raw diet.”
A second was in agreement, as they said: “Raw – or chicken fillets.”
And more pet owners were quick to share their brand recommendations with one another.
One said: “Pooch and mutt – 80% meat range is good. No added rubbish in there.”
