Category: Diet for dogs
The health of the beloved four-legged friend is one of the most important areas of responsibility of the dog owner. Just as humans pay attention to a balanced and healthy diet, so should the dog. But what vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, etc. does a dog need? How much food should you give? Which food is right for my dog? In our category “Nutrition for dogs” we have a suitable answer to these questions. It should be noted that especially puppies get the right mix of nutrients, trace elements, vitamins, fats, proteins and fiber. Your muscles and bones depend on these nutritional bases. If there are a few things in the daily diet, it can lead to long-term consequences. In addition to nutrition, we also give you important tips and tricks for handling puppies or dog training. Dry food, BARF or canned food? The well-known canned food is usually sufficient and covers all substances that the dog needs for his daily health and fitness. However, one must not forget that the size, age and energy requirements of each dog is a key criterion for the amount of feed and the type of feed. Since the dog was originally from the wolf, one might think that all dogs are pure carnivores. But to feed the dogs properly, it is not enough to put a juicy piece of fresh meat in the bowl once a day. Currently a new trend is developing: BARF. BARF is fresh meat food in the form of muscle meat, offal and bones. This raw feeding is intended to mimic the natural origin of the dog. In addition to the “Barfen” there is the classic wet and dry food. With dry food, it is important to always provide fresh water as the dog can otherwise digest the dry food poorly. Both feed options have their advantages and disadvantages. What are these and whether you better give wet food or dry food for your dog, we tell you on the following pages.
