    Depends on the dog food. Many commercial dry dog food brands use a mixture of meat-and-bone meals, grain by-products, horse meat. Also less expensive dog foods generally include less meat,and more animal by-products and grain fillers.

    Some people make their own dog food, feed their dogs meals made from ingredients purchased in grocery or health-food stores or give their dogs a raw food diet. Many others rely on commercially manufactured dog food.

    Many commercial dog foods are made from materials considered by some authorities and dog owners to be unusable or undesirable[7]. These may include:

    Meat-and-bone meals
    Grain by-products
    Horse meat[8]
    Less expensive dog foods generally include less meat,and more animal by-products and grain fillers. Proponents of a natural diet criticize the use of such ingredients, and point out that regulations allow for packaging that might lead a consumer to believe that they are buying a natural food, when, in reality, the food might be comprised mostly of ingredients such as those listed above

    There are many types of dog foods and as many philosophies that regard them. There are many people who believe that the dog food available commercially uses poor meats and argue that feeding table scraps is just fine. Still, others believe that commercial dog food features nutrition that is more accurate for dogs. Dry doggie kibble is made either by baking or extrusion. In extrusion, dough or raw materials is fed into an expander, where steam or hot water is added. It puffs up to the size of popcorn then is dried and other vitamins, fats, and oils are then added. Other less common alternative dog foods include frozen, dehydrated, refrigerated and people even make their own dog food.
