HOW REGULARLY SHOULD YOU NOURISH A GROWNUP DOG?

28 Sep

2 times a day, once in the early morning following a walk and then in the afternoon close to your mealtime time. Precisely what do you give it? MEAT. Fresh meat from as many sources as feasible. If your dog doesn’t enjoy one type of meat, consider another. Introduce them slowly if your grownup dog has just been raised on grain previously.

Domestic Dogs like regimen and a slow shift in diets. You should also be aware that in the outdoors, dogs are scavengers and eat whatever they are able to, any time they can. It is banquet or famine for most canines in the wild. This means that if your own dog does not feel like a meal, do not fret, canines consume what they require. Well a few types consume till they are above full, but bypassing a meal is not uncommon for a dog.

JUST HOW MUCH TO GIVE YOUR DOG?

Your grownup dog’s diet will rely on age, breed, exercise level etc. You will find several guides on the net, but basically a little type dog can frequently have a higher metabolic rate and require to be fed 3 occasions a day. A working dog will likely be substantial energy dog and can need a bigger meal.

Old, low energy dogs call for significantly less food. It is advised (by vets) to you give your dog sweet potato if its stools are too soft. However an excessive amount can help to make your dog blocked. This is primarily the time that a dog should have any sizeable quantity of vegetable matter, purely as medicine.

How can dog treats actually be good for a dog?

27 Sep

Right now this first post is likely to fly in the face of the common viewpoint on dogs put out there by the media. But this viewpoint is really that of commercial dog food companies, needing to retain you on their revenue streams forever. It was actually never yours to begin with. But how tricky are they at making us believe them all of the time?!

Initially I considered taking it very easy on these commercial giants, however as your dog’s health and wellbeing is at stake, and the independent appraisal for dog’s wellness is seldom granted to be heard, I am prepared to take the heat on this one. Yes, I am taking a stand for all DOG owners, on the reality about giving their dogs genuine nutrition, not just whatever the large companies want to get rid of (grains and veggie matter).

If you really like your dog (and I assume you do as you are reading this article), and you want your dog to be healthy and balanced – FEED THEM MEAT.

Equally, you must FEED THEM MEAT BASED DOG TREATS. Even if you don’t believe in ‘treats’ that’s ok, as you will find that proper treats are nutritionally balanced and even better than most sources of food for your dog.

And now here is how the opposite viewpoint was established. Vets and vet health professionals are quite often paid off by dog food companies, sometimes they embark on pricey overseas seminars, occasionally they secure golf club membership. Whatever it calls for it is in THEIR most beneficial interests to give your own dog the lowest priced easily obtainable grains they can locate, and insert it in a vibrant shiny plastic container or sparkly jar and name it DOG food/ or dog treats. You can’t make a big profit by giving the good stuff away can you?

Indeed, dog food companies cannot generate money by offering meats, because that is a butcher’s profession and meats can be costly to get and to store. So by selling people completely improper NON meat food, these company’s make a large profit, and your dog scarcely lives as it should. I have published other reports on what puppies need in dog food and puppy treats, but canines are only young dogs for the very first yr of their existence, you have to be concerned about the other 90% plus of their time in this world.

REALITY CHECK. Dogs are meat eaters. Their forebears the grey wolf were carnivores. The grey wolf’s ancestors were meat eaters. Dogs only developed from wolves 15 thousand years ago. There was no rationale for wolves to eat grass, vegetables or any kind of green matter unless they were feeling unwell or as a side effect of eating their prey’s stomach.

But more on this in the next post …
