Caring For Your Dog

July 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 217

If you accept the notion that a dog is man's best friend (and who indeed could refuse that), then you have to accept the need to provide your pet with the very best in care and nutrition. Dog food is an important part of keeping your dog fit and healthy, with many conditions and illnesses resulting from a poor diet. Indeed, it's not just a case of what you feed your dog, but how much and when. Dog food comes in a range of types, sizes and flavours, from the low end market of brands that cost little more than a few pence, to trays of freshly prepared food that's no different to what you might serve your family. A dog is likely to eat anything you put in front of it, but if you want to stave off the onset of conditions like heart disease, kidney failure and arthritis, it is important to make sure that you're giving the best dog food you can afford.

Indeed, the crux of the matter does often come down to cost and many owners think they can only afford to pay for inexpensive tins. However, when you consider that many of these tins have less than 5% meat content, the value you're getting is minimal. In fact, it works out considerably cheaper to buy and cook your own dog food ingredients and is certainly better for your animal. Using off cuts of meat from the butcher is a great way of saving money whilst ensuring your dog gets a good nutrient rich diet. Cheap cuts of meat that couldn't be served to humans are often available from a supermarket or local butchers for only a few pence and anything that you cannot use can simply be frozen until you need to cook it.

Although this method takes up a little more time, you will be amazed at the transformation in your animal. Good food has a direct bearing on their energy levels and a healthy dog is undoubtedly a happy dog - with many owners reporting that a change in the diet has helped solve behavioural problems, especially at night. And because you are feeding your dog in a natural and organic way, you're much less likely to need trips to the vet or have to spend out on expensive medications. A dog fed good dog food is much less likely to suffer chronic illnesses and these can cost thousands of pounds in vet's fees and medication over the lifetime of your pooch. Supplementing a diet with fresh vegetables is also important and lightly boiled veggies are a great way of suing up anything that might be past its best.
