Dog Food: Go For Chicken
Chicken is a great ingredient to feed your dog but don’t be misled.
Commercial manufacturers will list chicken as both chicken and chicken meal. What are the
differences of the two? The chicken meal is best because it is baked to remove the bacteria and
toxins. The ingredient chicken contains some 60% water so you are not getting your monies
worth or a meat that is most nutritious.
Next to continue is moisture level in dog foods. The moist dog foods are best because they
contain more protein and less water when converted to dry matter.

Dog Food: Buy Premium
Premium dog foods are the best foods for your dog. They do cost more because they are of
high value and so pay off in the end both for your dog and for your pocketbook.
Premium dog foods do not contain harmful fillers and inferior ingredients. They are both sound
and nutritious. There are no colors or preservatives so your dog will be fed nature’s finest.
Learn how to calculate to convert to dry matter when reading labels. This is the best value for
your dollar and the best nutrition for your dog.
Taurine is an excellent ingredient in some dog foods. It is an amino acid and works to benefit
the dog’s heart, kidneys and blood. It works to carry essential ingredients to and from cells.
You should read labels carefully to see if Taurine is included in your dog’s food. Not all dog
foods will. When so many dog food manufacturers are just in business for the buck, keep this in
mind when you select your choice of dog food.
Some foods are poisonous to your dog. Every day table foods that you and your family enjoy,
for example, can cause permanent damage to your beloved pet.
The only food that you should be feeding your dog is approved foods by your Veterinarian.
These come complete with sound nutrition.
Don’t think that you are doing your pet any favors by offering him a wee morsel of your own
food. Doing this only now and then is forbidden and should never be entertained. After all, why
would you want to feed your beloved pet something you know will harm him?
Feed your dog on a good schedule and limit the amounts. This is the best you can do for your
dog and this is a responsible dog owner’s job.
In order for your dog to be at his best health it is important to keep your dog’s weight down. All
of that extra weight is not healthy.
How To Take Care Of Your Dog’s Health

Choose dog foods according to your dog’s size, daily activity level and health conditions. When
you are doing this you are doing the best you can to take proper care of your dog.
Avoid the cheaper brand dog foods as these are inferior choices for your dog’s best interest and
help.
Your dog is an individual and so his needs won’t be exactly the same as your neighbor’s dog.
Take all of these factors into consideration and you will be proud to be a dog owner.

Dog Food: Food Requirements
Understand the proper food requirements of your pet! The better dog foods are called Premium
for they contain the best of everything nutritious and healthy. You can find these types of dog
foods at your Vet or specialty stores. Some grocery stores will carry some of these brands, too,
but read those labels. Cheaper brands of dog food are called Commercial and are found
commonly in your corner store and grocery food store where you shop for the family food.
If you feel you must buy cheaply, keep in mind that you will purchase cheap ingredients. This
includes cheap sources of protein, which you really should not be skimping on. They will include
cheap by-products and fillers, which provide little to no nutrition for your dog.
Take your dog’s health into consideration. When you feed him cheaper dog food he will not be
able to maintain his good health so be careful when you select your brand of dog food.
Feeding your puppy takes special consideration. Your dog will grow significantly during the first
15 months so feeding him the optimal diet that they need is very important.
Protein is concern number one. Your puppy will require larger amounts of protein during this
time. The balance of foods must be met too. Balanced ingredients are very important to a
healthy puppy!
Different breeds of dogs have different requirements. Consult with your Veterinarian to find out
which choice is best for your puppy according to breed.
Find out the suggested feeding guidelines, as well. Feeding your puppy right will mean a happy
and healthy puppy and you will enjoy your time...
