As you feed your dog whether it is dry or wet food, it is a good idea to gradually introduce some raw meaty bones. It is a natural way for the dog to get some tooth care and also provides some positive benefits. A raw bone meal once a week will be a good addition to your dog’s diet.
Another thing to consider when feeding your dog is the size of the dog. For example the amount of food an Alsatian gets and a bull dog get are different and you should pay close attention to that. How much food the dog eats should be closely tied in to exercise. You do not want an overweight dog, nor do you want a dog that will develop health issues from the diet they are on. Always make sure that your dog gets enough exercise to help boost their metabolism.
Dog food could be expensive in the long run. A good way to save and at the same time provide your dog a healthy balanced diet is to prepare the dog food yourself. You should also know everything there is concerning your breed of dog and the type of health issues and food allergies they could be prone to. Have more than a layman’s knowledge concerning canned food and dried food. Most of all, dogs cannot brush their teeth the way we do, so the food they eat could influence their dental hygiene.
