What Should I Feed My Dog

Feeding your dog or puppy is an essential part of their overall health and wellbeing. But with so many different types of dog food, treats, and dental care products on the market, it can be overwhelming to decide what to feed your furry friend. In this chapter, we’ll discuss the best way to feed your dog or puppy for optimal health benefits.

A complete and balanced diet is crucial for a dog’s overall health. Dogs gain the widest range of health benefits through a combination of dry food, wet food, dental care products, and treats.

We recommend feeding a mixture of 50% wet food and 50% dry food as a main meal diet to give your dog different health benefits, tastes, and textures – making mealtimes even more enjoyable. Additional treats, table scraps, and daily dental care products are not 100% complete; they should only make up around 10% of your dog’s daily calories to ensure healthy weight maintenance. Just as with human food, remember to count calories and adjust your dog’s main meal if/when treating.

Wet food in cans or pouches is a great option as it offers variety in taste and texture that dogs love while providing essential nutrients for their overall wellness. Dry food is the generally accepted staple of dogs’ diets today due to its convenience in storage without refrigeration.

Dental care is another vital aspect of a healthy diet for dogs since four out of five dogs over three years old suffer from some form of gum disease caused by plaque buildup around their gum line. This can be reduced by an effective oral care routine which includes brushing your dog’s teeth on a daily basis using proper toothbrushes designed for them.

Treats are an excellent way to bond with your furry friend while training them or looking after their emotional wellbeing. However tempting these treats may be, it is important not to overfeed your dog with treats. It’s best to limit them to 10% of their daily calorie intake.

In summary, a combination of wet and dry food, dental care products, and treats in moderation will provide your dog with a complete & balanced diet. Remember to count calories and adjust your dog’s main meal if/when treating. Don’t forget that dental care is essential for maintaining good oral health, so make sure to brush your dog’s teeth daily using proper toothbrushes designed for dogs.

As you can see, feeding your furry friend doesn’t have to be complicated or overwhelming. With the right balance of nutrients and treats in moderation, you can ensure that your pup leads a healthy life while enjoying tasty meals.
