What you feed your dog is crucial to its health and so a high-quality, varied diet is key. Dry food generally keeps for longer and is better for their teeth. Wet food usually has a higher meat content and is therefore often preferred by dogs. The two can usually be combined effectively. Snacks and treats are also a very popular way to reward your dog. As all dog food tastes differ, you won't know which food your dog prefers until they've tried a few. Not all dogs tolerate the same food.
Many factors must be considered when choosing the perfect food for your dog. Many dogs prefer a certain brand or taste. It is also important to select food according to your dog's age. Puppies have very different needs than more senior dogs. If your dog has health issues or special needs, there are often special nutritional supplements, such as weight control or dental care food, that should also be considered. Again, you should consider your dog's specific needs. In order to help you with your choice, our site is equiped with a search function with special filters by brand, flavor, stage of life and special food. You'll certainly find the perfect food for your dog.
You can tell whether or not a certain type of food agrees with your dog by the sheen of its coat and its general state of health. The food or brand should not be changed at random so as not to upset your dog's stomach.
It is also important not to overfeed your dog. Giving them frequent treats will cause them to gain weight and become sluggish. If your dog is overweight, it helps to feed them a little less and incorporate plenty of exercise into their daily routine, just like with humans. If you can no longer feel your dog’s ribs and have to "rummage around" for them, then this is a sign that your dog has piled on a few too many pounds. Ideally you should feed your dog two or three times a day and offer treats only sparingly.
