When it comes to feeding your dog, there’s a lot to consider. Depending on the size, age and activity level, what you need to feed your dog will vary greatly. Adult dogs have different nutritional diet requirements to puppies. A diet for a small breed like a Cocker Spaniel or Pug would not be suitable for a large breed like a Great Dane or Labrador retriever. It’s essential that your pooch gets the nutrients it requires to stay happy and healthy. These include fibre, protein and vitamins.
By scheduling your feeding routine at the same time every day, your pup will be able to look forward to the meal and know when to expect his or her tasty dinner. As a dog owner or lover, it’s also vital that you’re aware of poisonous foods for dogs. If a dog ingests raw eggs and/or yeast dough, dogs’ stomachs become massively bloated and can lead to death. This is just one of many examples that are detailed in the infographic below – there are numerous common foods that are tremendously dangerous for our four legged friends. For all the details on how to keep your dog healthy and happy, let’s check out this infographic!
