Dog Health: The Right Diet

Dog Health: The Right Diet

The right diet is an essential part of your dog's health. But what should an adult dog's diet actually consist of?

Adult dogs' nutritional needs vary, depending on the breed and their activity level. You wouldn't ever want to feed the same quantities for example to a pug as you would a lab. However, food is a great way to stimulate dogs and keep them nourished both mentally and physically.

Treats

We all like a treat now and then, but loading up on processed sugars and additives is never good whether you're pups or peoples.

While meat makes up the majority of their diet, domestic dogs can also derive nutrients from grains, fruits, and vegetables. These non-meat foods are not simply fillers, but can be a valuable source of essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Why not try adding in some of the following to your dog's bowl...

Blueberries

They're a great source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants for dogs.

Eggs

High in proteins as well as essential amino and fatty acids. It is best to serve eggs cooked to avoid any risk of salmonella poisoning. They're also great for settling upset canine tums.

Apples

Full of vitamins A&C they're packed full of dietary fibre. Remember to core before giving to your dog. As apple seeds are poisonous.

Carrots

This veg make sthe perfect nutritious alternative to a bone. Although generally safe to be consumed whole, we'd always suggest breaking them down into more manageable portions to avoid choking.

Kibble

Make sure that if you're feeding your dog dry food that you chose a high quality kibble.

PCSO-524

More potent in effect than any standard fish oil capsule. It contains over 90 functional fatty acids including many rare, powerful lipids that are not found in other supplements. Antinol supports the metabolism of joints in the case of osteoarthritis in dogs and cats. It's the No.1 product across several countries in the Asia Pacific region. However, here is nothing like it on the market in the UK.
