Pet Food Recipe

Of all the animals present on earth, dogs are said to be the most loyal. Perhaps that is the reason why dogs are often known as "man's best friend". There are hundreds of species of dogs available today. No matter which breed you own, your pet dog will never fail to impress you with its loyalty and obedience. In ancient times, dogs were primarily used to escort men for hunting in dense jungles.

The popularity of dogs is evidenced by the fact that certain breeds of dogs are priced at over a thousand dollars. Chinese dogs, also known as play dogs, fetch huge money in the dog markets. Some of the popular breeds of dogs are 'Boxer', 'Bull Dog', 'Chow Chow', 'Beagle', 'Poodle', 'Rottweiler', 'Doberman', 'Cocker Spaniel', 'Afghan Hound', 'German Shepherd Dog' and 'Labrador Retriever'.

Before we discuss the importance of feeding your dog with the right kind of food, I would like to emphasize the fact that food meant for human beings is not necessarily good for the health of dogs. In fact, a few of the foods that we consume are injurious for your pet dog. Onions, for example, can destroy the digestive system of your dog. Similarly, grapes and chocolates can result in diarrhea, excessive urination and even cardiac arrest.

The best diets for both dogs and cats are natural ones, coming as close as possible to the diet they would eat in the wild. Cats are naturally carnivorous and have a high protein requirement, while dogs tend to be more scavenging and eat more of a variety of foods, requiring less protein than cats.

If you've checked the labels when purchasing dog food then you know that some of them contain chemical preservatives. Any pet food with chemical preservatives is a ticking time bomb, as they can can be very unhealthy and lead to various degenerative diseases which will incapacitate your pet or even lead to premature death. One way to get around this problem is only to feed organic dog food to your pet.

Olive oil is good for dogs. Eggs, fruits (except grapes), boiled pasta, fat-free yoghurt, boiled chicken and potatoes are good for your dog's health. Spicy foods and sweets, on the other hand, are toxic to dogs. You can opt for 'flint river ranch dog food' or 'innova dog food' as these brands of 'pet food' will never harm your dog's health.

Dogs, while they are "man's best friend", should not eat the same food as man. Different breeds should eat different kinds of pet food. Some brands, such as innova dog food, use the right ratio of meat and plant ingredients to make sure your dog is healthy. This grain / protein ratio mimics what dogs eat in nature. When choosing a dog food, you should also take into account the source of your ingredients. Natural and holistic ingredients, like those in flint river ranch dog food, are the best choice.
