Commercial dog foods typically use artificial colors, artificial flavoring, and preservatives. Several small dog food manufacturers produce natural dog food that does not contain these artificial ingredients.
If the dog food is described in this way, it does not guarantee that the dog food is the healthiest dog food. A dog food that consists largely of natural corn or grain products could be considered all natural, but not healthy for dogs. The healthiest dog food is a meat-based dog food.
But what about a dog who doesn’t have an upset stomach; why would he eat grass? No, it’s not because he’s a vegetarian, but he could be treating your lawn like a salad bar as part of a balanced diet. Seriously. Your dog mostly eats dry dog food, right? Just like humans need their fruits and veggies, especially greens, so too do dogs need greens for proper nutrition.
Let's begin with the more savory treats shall we? If you are having chicken for dinner then it will be a perfect time to prepare your doggie's little snack items as well. Cut the chicken you can spare in little strips and spread them over a baking sheet with plenty of cheese sprinkled on top of them. Bake them in a pre-heated oven of about 110°C until it becomes crisp. Let it cool and its ready to be served.
You can also put a beef heart or liver in boiling water and allow it to simmer for about two hours. By then it should be thoroughly cooked and ready. Remove from water and slice the organ meat into bite sized treats. Put these in an air tight container and freeze until you need it. Ensure that it is completely defrosted before serving to the eager puppy lest he suffers from indigestion and an iced jaw.
Some dog food manufacturers make holistic dog food that contains natural ingredients. The significant difference between holistic dog food and most commercial dog foods is the quality of the ingredients.
Though animal byproducts are often the animal protein source in commercial dog food, animal byproducts are not usually included in holistic dog food. Animal byproducts are meat pieces that are not suitable for human consumption. Some holistic dog foods use only human-grade ingredients. Holistic dog food may have vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants added.
1. Always consult your veterinarian about your dogs especially when it comes to diet. Your dog may be one with special nutritional requirements or be allergic to certain kinds of food groups. Find out your canine's present condition and make the necessary preparations in regard to their food plan.
