Dog Food Ė help on feeding your dog.
Choosing which dog food to feed your dog with is not an easy choice. There are so many dog foods available, it can be bewildering. Youíd be wise to ask your vet for some suggestions and for a guide on how much your dog needs to eat and what type of diet he should have.
Most dogs will just need to be fed once a day, however some larger dogs may require more, again, check with your vet. If you have a puppy then they will require feeding 2-4 times a day, depending on their age.
Basically, when it comes to making a choice of which food to buy for your dog, itís fair to say that youíre going to get what you pay for. Quality dog meal that is more nutritional is always going to cost more.
Basically, there are two different foods available for your dog; dry food and canned food. Dry food is cheaper and more hygienic and used often by breeders. Canned food is probably the most palatable of the foods available because of its moisture.
Avoid using plastic bowls, as they are prone to germs. Look at using stainless steel bowls. Always keep your dogs bowls clean and be sure there is clean water always available.
Donít keep swapping and changing the food your dog eats. Keep him on the same brand; otherwise you could upset his stomach. If you do have to change his diet, then mix in the new food with his old and gradually change his diet by giving him slightly more of the new food in his old food every day. Do this over several days.
One thing you should never feed your dog is chocolate. Chocolate contains various chemicals that can lead to an increased heart rate and constriction of your dogís arteries. If your dog as eaten chocolate then make a note of what he as eaten and call your vet.
Be sure to feed your dog regularly and donít skip on any of his meals. Give him a good well balanced nutritional meal and check often to see he as fresh water available and you should have a healthy dog for many years to come.
