Boost The Nutrients Your Dog Receives Daily
If you’re like most dog owners, you probably think of your pup as an important member of the family, and, just like with any other family member, you want to make sure they get the best possible nutrition. It can get overwhelming with so many different options on the market. However, one popular option is to add complementary food items to your dog’s diet.
Use the information in this blog about dog food and keep your furry friend happy and healthy!
A Good Dog Food Must Contain…
The most common kinds of dog food are dry kibble or canned wet food. These might seem unappealing to us, but they contain all the necessary nutrients for dogs to stay healthy. Quality commercial dog food has to undergo many tests before going out to the market, but what exactly is in these foods?
Dogs aren’t strict carnivores, so you can give them combinations of vegetables, fruits, grains, and meat. The best dog foods usually provide high-quality versions of these ingredients, perfect for your dog’s digestive system.
The ingredient list on the package does not always give information about the quality of the ingredients, but it does reveal what is included in the food. This is especially vital for dogs with specific nutritional requirements or allergies and their owners who want to feed them particular sources of fiber, protein, and carbohydrates.
Boost Up The Dry Kibble
Some of the best things you can add to your dog’s diet are:
- Eggs: These are a combination of high-quality protein and fat along with a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. Most dogs don’t have issues with bacteria in raw eggs, but it’s fine to feed them soft-cooked, hard-cooked, or scrambled eggs.
A large egg provides around 70 calories. This amount is perfect for medium-sized and larger dogs; however, petite dogs would do better with half an egg daily.
- Yogurt: Yogurt is another nutritious food that is inexpensive and simple to feed. Stick to low-fat or nonfat plain yogurt, as your dog doesn’t require the sugar in the flavored types. Yogurt has probiotics (beneficial bacteria) in it, which provide benefits for all dogs. They are particularly beneficial to dogs with digestive difficulties.
- Sardines: Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish like salmon are beneficial for the skin and coat. They also aid in maintaining a healthy immune system and inflammation reduction, making them useful for dogs with allergies, arthritis, and autoimmune disease.
DHA is also beneficial to brain health, which can benefit both puppies and older dogs. Make sure to use sardines packed in water, not oil, and feed as soon after opening, so the fatty acids are still fresh.
