Proper Toy Poodle nutrition can help your pet live longer
A Toy Poodle can be a loving and intelligent addition to your family, but before you adopt one, you should know a bit about Toy Poodle nutrition. Providing your new pet with the proper nutrition will help him build a strong immune system as well as keep him looking and feeling great.
Commercial dog foods may not be the best thing to feed your pet and you want to be sure to pay attention to the ingredients listed on the dog food label. Many commercial products do not have the nutrients required to keep your dog in the peak of condition, but are crammed with fillers and other worthless substances.
You'll be amazed that the "by-products" listed in your favorite dog food actually includes anything deemed unfit for human consumption such as feathers, fecal matter, animal hooves and spoiled meat, even fillers like hair and newspapers! Most likely, these by-products will expose your dog to a host of illnesses and diseases.
So, which food should you choose to be sure that your pet receives adequate Toy Poodle nutrition?
When you are shopping for dog food go with quality over price. There are many brand that you should consider such as Innova, Life's Abundance and Old Mother Hubbard. Good quality food will reduce the risk or health problems later in your pets life and increase your pets longevity and they will eat less of it so the added cost is balanced out.
It is important that you read the labels on commercial food. Meat should be the first or the second ingredient. Keep reading to see if there are any artificial preservatives, by-products or fillers. If you come across something that doesn't sound food related or even vaguely familiar, I suggest you find another food for your Poodle.
To get the best nutrional diet for your pet Toy Poodle, you would want to give him foods that you would also consume. Feed him poultry, vegetables, fruits and even dairy products such as eggs and cottage cheese. Some people encourage a raw diet, which constitutes giving your pet uncooked meats. However, I believe that would do more harm than good as many meats are more than likely to contain varying degrees of bacteria. You may want to consider preparing your pet's dinner using the same requirements as you would to prepare your own.
Your Poodle is a well loved member of the family, so why not feed him like one? Providing the proper Toy Poodle nutrition will help keep him feeling great and increase longevity as well as keep eyes sharp, her heart and body strong and his coat shiny.
