Dog nutrition is an important part of canine dog health. There is a saying about being what you eat, and it’s true for animals as well as humans. The better their diet, the more likely they are to maintain their health and happiness. This may not be as easy as it sounds though. Most of us have been convinced that commercial dog foods are in the best interest of canine dog health. Now we find out that this might not be entirely true.
Some commercial foods are not made according to what is needed for complete dog nutrition. Some of the meats used for these types of foods are not even up to human consumption levels. I do not know about you, but if I will not eat it, why would I feed it to my best friend? I know a lot of other pet owners that are just as concerned about that as I am, and feel the same way about what we are feeding our dogs.
For this reason, many pet owners are looking at making their own dog food. By doing this we can take back control over the level of nutrition our pet is getting, and are better able to ensure that it is up to our standards. There are countless recipes available all over for great dog food. The best part about it is that you can still change the recipe to suit your particular pet. You can also add in supplements to boost your pet’s health, but the most important part is actually knowing that what your dog is eating is good for them.
