Nutritional Advice For Your Dog

puppy restingGood nutrition forms the basis for good health. Today, more than ever, concerned pet owners want the best nutrition for there pets, but are bombarded with so much conflicting information. We have put this info together, trying to be unbiased, in the hopes that it will help you to make the best decisions for your dog(s).

In dogs, the most important health issues that are strongly influenced by diet are as follows:

  1. Obesity – by far the number one concern!
  2. Hip dysplasia and other growing dog diseases
  3. Dental disease
  4. Allergies
  5. Osteoarthritis
  6. Chronic Kidney disease

We’ll try to focus on the prevention of these diseases as we talk about nutrition.

Raw Food Diets - Are They "More Natural" or Dangerous?

Is a Raw Food Diet2Raw food diets are an attempt to mimic a ‘more natural’ diet for dogs, one that is supposedly similar to a wolf’s diet. Raw food diet is still somewhat controversial among veterinarians, breeders, dog owners and other authorities. While dogs may have been wild carnivores in the past, that was a long time ago and it does not necessarily follow that the diet of a modern dog should be identical or even similar to that of their ancestors.

Common sense would suggest that a diet close to what would be consumed in nature is healthier for any animal than the alternatives, and the experiences and reports of dog owners who have put their animals on raw food diets seems to verify this assumption.
