12 Dec Yummmmmmm Dogs and Food
So what should you feed your beloved dog? How often? Raw or dry, packaged or homemade? The choices are ENDLESS. What I can suggest is do YOUR HOMEWORK!! READ labels!! There are so many choices out there, but feed what works best for your dog. It is ok to change foods, just do it gradually, adding a bit of the new to the old, little by little. Puppies need to be fed more often than adult dogs. 3-4 Times a day to 1-2 Times a day as an adult. Most foods state feeding requirements based on dogs age and size. People food is good for dogs but there are toxic people foods that can hurt or even kill your dog. Onions, garlic, chocolate, dairy, grapes just to names few!! Check with your veterinarian for a list of healthy foods that are good for your dog. Remember too, ALWAYS have plenty of fresh water out and NEVER give alcohol or coffee to your dog !! When feeding your dog a new food, check for reactions, itching, scratching, paw chewing, seizers or diarrhea or vomiting. If any of these exist call the Dr and bring the food!! Dogs CAN have food allergies . If all goes well, you got a winner!! Don’t over feed, and give occasional treats and your dog will thrive!!
