Dog Food Faq's
Author: G D Williams
Pet food never used to be a problem, as most people simply fed their pet table scraps. But now we know that feeding our dog table scraps is bad, this is because it can lead to health problems, because the food eaten by humans is not always right for dogs.
There is no one dog food that is suitable for every dog, so sometimes selecting the correct one can be difficult. The choice of dog food varies, depending on the age of your dog, breed and size. Convenience can also influence you in your decision on what you think is the right kind of dog food for your pet.
Preservatives and chemicals are not only bad for humans, they are just as bad for your dog. The recent case of contaminated dog has scared a lot of pet owners, as it has led to a lot of pet deaths. Because of this a lot of pet owners have entirely removed any commercial dog food from their home. Making your own dog food is one way for you to take control of the food your dog eats, but it is not always possible or convenient.
Choosing a holistic pet food that is chemical and additive free is one way to eliminate preservatives from your pets diet. Dog food that provides good nutrition without chemicals or additives is available to you through different brands. A example of this is wellness dog food, as it has all the goodness of nature without those nasty chemicals in it that can cause of your dog to be ill.
Dry Food Or Canned?
Do you give your pet dry dog food or canned pet food is another decision you might want to make. For some pet owners this is a matter of economics. Dry food is easier to store and frequently a lot cheaper. This will mean you will have to make fewer trips to the pet store and less money will be spent by you at the end of the day. While this may be more economical, you should still take care about the kind of dry food that you feed your dog.
A better choice may be canned food as it has less preservatives in it. But this choice can pose a storage problem and you can find it a lot more expensive than dry dog food. Another factor in selecting might be your dogs preference! Some dogs will only eat certain types of pet food while others will eat anything. Experiment a little and be sure to change your dogs diet slowly into eating the new dog food of your choice. You can always try various flavors to see what your dog likes.
