Dog food comes in different shapes, colors, sizes, brands and tastes. Some dogs are picky and will only eat a certain brand, then you have dogs who are not picky and will eat whatever you put in front of them. Even if it is no good for them and does not contain many, if any nutrients. Some of it is dry, some of it is wet and some of it even comes with gravy and chunks! We always find it interesting just how much pet owners spend on their pets food each year. They do not realize that most of the food their pet is eating is not natural and can give the dog health problems.
Some of the food that we feed our dog is horrible. Why do our puppies eat it? Well, they will eat anything you put in front of them, wouldn’t they? They don’t really know any better. However, some of the companies out there actually add artificial flavors in order to make the dog want it even more. Why would you want to feed your dog that artificial food when you have the option to feed them an all natural variety? We believe the all natural version of food for the dog would be the best, because that is what they eat in the wild.
Do you know much about the digestive system of the dog? It is acidic. The raw mean will help stimulate the acidic system. Why is there so much acid? It is there in order to kill that harmful bacteria in the dog. As a warning, you should not feed your dog bones that have been cooked. When you do this, it could cause harm to your dog. It could splinter the inside of your dog and the ending result could be death. Therefore, it is important to make sure you give your pet a bone that has not been cooked.
In the natural food that you give your pet, it should have a mixture of vegetables. As a general rule, they say that you need to have twenty five percent vegetable in it. However, you should not go feeding your dog a carrot as Bugs Bunny would eat.
The wild dogs get the vegetables they need from the stomachs and intestines of the animals they eat. You can grate vegetables and put it them in your pets all natural food. You may choose to run them through a food processor or a blender.
The wild dog also gets the water they need from the prey, so the food you give should be a thick stew. The moisture content of the food you feed your pet will have an effect on keeping the bladder and kidneys in good health. When being fed this type of food, you may notice your dog cutting down on the amount of water he or she is drinking.
If you care about your pet, then you would take the advice from us. All natural, raw dog food is the best food to give them.
