Dexter: What are some nutritious dog food?
Dr.Linh: Currently, there are many foods to compliment the well-developed dog. In particular, they are sub-divided into 2 types of food. That is:
Dry food for dogs: Dry food contains full of nutritional ingredients such as cereals, meat, vitamins, and other meat products (eggs, milk) ... This type of food is not highly commended for its quality and quantity. It also saves you time, no need to prepare your dog food. This food line is usually produced and processed according to the stage and age of the dog. Therefore, you absolutely can choose the right product.
Fresh dog food includes fresh foods such as pork, beef, chicken, fish, vegetables, fruits, etc., which are processed appropriately. These are all nutritious, fresh foods, so when properly prepared will be very good with the comprehensive development of dogs. Each type of food will have different advantages and disadvantages. E.g.:
Dog dishes made from fresh food will be diverse, nutritious, safe, easy to absorb and digest better. However, for each age and physical condition of each dog, you must have a diet suitable for them. And if you are a busy person, it will take time to prepare a meal for your pet. To adjust the diet appropriately, you should give the dog a try first for the first few weeks, then track the development, weight gain, body condition of your dog. From there, we can give a balanced diet for them.
For dry food, the most outstanding advantage is time-saving. Besides, a unique feature that many people prefer to use dry food because it helps the waste of the dogs to be moulded, very easy to clean. However, the use of dry food also has some unavoidable disadvantages. Firstly, because it is dry food, the nutrient content is relatively limited in fibre, making it difficult for the dog to have indigestion, affecting development. Therefore, you should supplement fibre by feeding dogs more vegetables, tubers, fruits, ... to ensure the best health for dogs. At the same time, the cost of some high-class foods is relatively high, to provide enough daily food for dogs, the money is relatively expensive.
Thus, if you can harmonize these two foods, taking care of your pet will be more comfortable and your dog will be happier.
