Proportions of a suitable diet for his dog
In order to preserve your dog's health through his diet, two factors must be taken into account: proportions and components
The proportions of a dog food
Attention! The following is suitable for pet dogs, not hunting or working dogs or pregnant dogs.
Classically 1/3 carbohydrates - 1/3 protein - 1/3 lipid complements , to qualify a little and to adapt according to the age
Thus, for the young dog until the adulthood (18 months), you will constitute this portion of food-house as follows: 2 parts of meat and 1 part of cereals and vegetables .
Au adult dog , you will give 1 part meat and 2 parts of cereals and vegetables .
Au aging dog (from age 7), you will offer 1 part of meat, 1 part of cereals and 2 parts of vegetables
No matter how old your pet is, you'll add lipid and supplements in small amounts. Lipids will be presented as virgin first cold pressed vegetable oil for essential fatty acids (1 teaspoon for a 5 kg dog, for example).
Complements will be Brewer's Yeast B Vitamins and Vitamin Supplements to provide adequate intake in addition to other foods. As your dog eats kibble, this intake of vitamin mineral supplements will not be systematic. You can give ten days a month
only or one month out of three, for example.
It is not necessary to weigh the different parts of food. Measuring them with a spoon is quite sufficient
The components of a dog food The meat : it must be good quality ; banish animal parts rich in tendons and fat. Also banish pork and mutton. It will be given cooked preferably. Be wary of the excess of
offal (heart, liver), which concentrates the toxins ingested by ruminants. There are boxes of beef or chicken of biological quality that you can also use from time to time. The fish: it is to be preferred, especially since it avoids many problems of nitrogen excess linked to too much meat consumption. It should be cooked well (with water or steam) and removed
bones. Squares of hake or cod and fillets of sole (for feast days!) Are quickly cooked and easily digestible. You can also give sardine fillets or tuna crumbs, both in olive oil, but be careful not to make it a habit given their high lipid content. You will not add fat to your ration that day, of course. Egg : it must be cooked well, and it can also replace meat or fish from time to time. It is possible to give raw <1999> yolk, but not the white that your dog would not tolerate.
Various cereals: white rice, semi-complete rice, wheat flour semolina, corn flakes, spelled flakes, kamut wheat flakes, semi-complete pasta are the most popular and most nutritious. Cook all the cereals that you will give to your companion because the starch they contain must be cooked to be digestible.
The most used vegetables : these are the carrots (raw or cooked), zucchini, extra-fine peas (to be tolerated) and green salad (minced). Beware, vegetables of the family of alliaceae : onions, garlic, leeks, etc. are toxic to carnivores, destroying their red blood cells
first cold pressed , you can vary between
sunflower and olive . There is nothing to stop you from occasionally choosing ready-to-use blends of oils rich in Omega 3 and 6.
Brewer's yeast : preferably with malt, you have the choice between yeast in flakes, yeast in tablets but also preparations such as Phyto Robe (Phyto Mate). Your dog will love that you give it to him in the palm of your hand or in his ration. In conclusion, if the mixed ration seems a satisfactory medium term, do not blame the days when you are in too much haste and must feed your kibble companion only! For those busy days, I personally opt for
Dog Food Dinner from Yarrah , a very digestible complete food that must be inflated with hot water before being served. It has the advantage of being ready quickly and to vary croquettes. Finally, but without doubt you already know,
the food is given preferably warm , in a calm place, to regular time. Always accompany it with clean, never-frozen water, which is available to your pet 24 hours a day. If you can not use tap water, choose
waters with low mineralization
not to tire your kidneys
