Healthy dog food for your pet
Sometimes you feel that your pet might feel a bit bored of the same biscuits all the time. Dog food should not only entice your pet but also promote a great dog health. The necessary nutrients for a proper canine diet are usually included in the bags you buy at the store.
However, sometimes we want to vary the menu a little. Yes, it is true that dogs do not have as many taste buds as we do. But, have you seen him how he wags his tail when you serve him food that is not the traditional dog food?
What do they prefer as dog food?
From your experience, you have probably noticed that dogs will eat whatever is placed in front of them. While this is a general trend, there are some dogs that prefer certain types of food.
If a puppy is presented with a variety of flavors, they will probably develop a taste for a variety of foods. Canned foods usually release a strong aroma and will always lure a dog with a bit of a more demanding taste.
Dogs prefer fresh food so it is important to keep it that way. Aging food loses its aroma and flavor due to oxidation and formation of peroxides. Dry food is palatable if the bag remains sealed after being opened. Unopened canned food will usually last for about two years, time after which it will become stale.
What nutrients promote dog health
Dog health is the most important factor to consider when feeding our pets. These are the nutrients that achieve this:
- Water, just like in humans. Always have it fresh and available.
- Fats from chicken, lamb, and sunflower.
- Carbohydrates from potatoes, rice, corn, barley, and whole grains.
- Vitamins from dairy products, fish, bread, fruits, and vegetables.
A balanced diet keeps your canine healthy. If by any chance you notice symptoms of anemia or malnutrition on your pet, consult your veterinarian. You can use Dogalize's directory to find the one closest to you. Connect with us to learn how to better promote your dog´s health through proper food.
