You would assume that those greedy, four legged munchkins who don’t miss the opportunity to beg at the table would be able to eat anything. You are half-right - while they probably won’t say ‘no’ to anything, they really shouldn’t be eating many human foods. Some of these can cause digestive distress and toxicity. What a balanced diet looks like for dogs and for people are very different. Dogs require three main food groups – protein, fats and carbohydrates. Proteins help them grow and strengthen muscles while fats and carbohydrates are a source of energy. Other supplements like Omega 3, 6 etc. also help by maintain their coat and skin. Depending on the breed of dog you have, their level of activity and their age, the proportions of these may vary. To pin point the right diet for your dog, take him or her to your vet.
Lay out A Feast for Fido
Several international brands have put together a balanced diet for dogs depending on their age and breed size. While each brand has their own merits, you should check with your vet on which is the most appropriate and your dog will make it quite clear when he or she doesn’t like a particular brand. There are both dry dog foods and wet dog foods available so you can give your dog a choice of either or mix the two together.
