In todays world there are so many options to choose from when it comes to dog food, so it can be very confusing when making choice. Do you go with the most expensive bag in the store, or should you cook for your dog, or should they eat raw meat like wolves in the wild. In this post we will not cover a specific type of food but some additional supplements you can add to their food to enhance their nutrition and overall health.
Why Raw Food is Good For Dogs
To begin, it’s important to understand that this is a very debatable topic. Some people swear by a raw food diet fro dogs and others say it can be dangerous for their health.
Dogs are very different from humans, obviously. If you go back just 100 years, dog food as we know it (the dry stuff you can buy in bags) did not exist. So what did dogs eat before that? They ate a mixture of raw and cooked food (mainly left overs from their human masters).
If you do decide to start your dog on a raw diet, it is recommended to feed them a mixture of organ meats, muscle meats, ground bones, raw eggs and some raw yogurt.
The video below gives insight into how raw dog food is made. There are many different ways, this is just one example.
Resource for Raw Dog Food
There are so many options on the market today for dog food it could make your head spin. I recommend you make it yourself, but if you have a really busy life and don’t have the time, Darwin’s natural pet products has some great options.
In closing, it’s important to remember that this is a debatable topic that you will find many different opinions on. The only way to know what works best for your dog is to try them out.
