Feeding your dog a healthy nutritional diet is so important. When I ask clients about their dog’s weight and what they feed them, I’m amazed. A lot of the supermarket mass marketed food is crap! It lacks nutritional value, is bulked out with maize and wheat and the meat content is a bare minimum of meal. The fat that is separated becomes ‘animal fat’ and that goes into pet food. The remaining dried protein solids become ‘meal’ or meat ‘by-product meal’ for addition to pet food. According to European law, ‘meat and animal derivatives’ is defined as “All the fleshy parts of slaughtered warm-blooded land animals, fresh or preserved by appropriate treatment, and all products and derivatives of the processing of the carcass or parts of the carcass of warm-blooded land animals.” Would you eat this?
Not only is the quality of food importantly but the quantity is to. When you read the recommend daily feeding quantities on the packet you need to think about many factors. It is only a recommendation, some dogs gain weight easily like humans, we may also exercise our dogs more so they need more. The easiest way to work out your dog’s feeding requirements is to watch your dog’s weight. Don’t feed poor quality food and certainly don’t over feed.
Think, would we buy poor grade food for other members of our family? My dogs are fed on Bob and Lush, which is full of fresh meat and vegetables with no wheat or dairy. I’ve never had a dog that doesn’t thrive on it and it’s also suitable for dog’s with allergies.
