What Kind of Food Should I Feed My Dog?
The food you feed your dog is extremely important. Making sure your dog receives all the proper nutrients she needs is part of each owner’s responsibilities. There are many different dog food brands all claiming to be the best for your pooch.
Making the right decision
A good rule of thumb is to ensure that the food you feed your dog is high in protein and does not contain any grains. Your dog’s food should also be extremely low in sugar and have as little preservatives as possible. Canned food, while very flavorful, can contain many harmful chemicals and preservatives.
It’s important to give your dog healthy treats as well. Make sure that you include natural, raw healthy treats sure as carrots or apples. If you give your dog meat, make sure it is lean cut and low in sodium.
It’s always a good idea to speak to your vet about the best food for your dog. Your vet can recommend a brand that both suits your dog’s dietary needs and is meant for both the age group your dog is in and her activity level.
Several foods to keep your dog away from are:
- Grapes and Raisins
- Stone Fruits
