Feeding your dog a well balanced diet with recipes for homemade dog food may be easier than you think. The recent pet food recall has left many of us asking about the safety as well as the quality of our pets’ food. Can the suppliers and manufacturers of pet foods be trusted or has that trust been broken?
Dogs are traditionally not very finicky when it comes to eating, yet you could easily find your dog turning his nose up at a dish that has been laying around the floor. It could easily be that his food has gotten stale or damp from sitting around all day. The same food that made Fido's tail wag when you poured it from the bag can lose its flavor and appeal since they have become dry and wet.
All of us are devoted to our pets and ensuring that they are protected, healthful & content will be extremely vital. It is often actually difficult to appease them by offering the pet some poor food choices when they saddle up next to you watching us & praying for a little taste. Unfortunately, a good amount of of the treats we eat all the time might be potentially terribly bad to the dog's health.
Dog Food... Have you ever heard of a dog living into his late teens? I personally have never met such an age-defying dog but it does happen. Did you know, however, that many veterinarians and scientists today estimate that the life span of a dog should be into the late teens and even into the twenties? It is a wild idea, but many see it as attainable.
Over time, it has become increasingly apparent that we need to watch what we eat in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and reduce the effects of aging and diseases in the body. Our pets are in the same position as we are. By eating foods that are hard to digest, full of chemicals or contain little nutritional value, we are reducing the quality and the length of life of mans best friend.
