Practices of Fur Moms

Dogs are considered the top when it comes to being pets or on the list of domesticated animals. It could be because they are friendly and they are intelligent. Dog lovers treat their pet dogs as their children. The following are some of the practices dog lovers do with and to their dogs:

  1. Regular visit to vet. Yes, just like a baby, dogs also have vaccines and vitamins. Some breed need to be groomed in a pet clinic with vet. Regular visit to a veterinary can prevent your pets from acquiring illness. Just like humans, dogs have lives that needs to be taken care of.
  2. Bark day. Bark day is a dog’s birthday. A day full of treats and a whole day or hours of meet and greet with your friends who are also into dogs. Cakes for dogs are available so yes, you can give your dog it’s own personalized or customized cake.
  3. Shopping. Who does not want to shop for their pets? Dogs have their own essentials too. Aside from food and vitamins, treats and some toys are also helpful for them. You can also shop for cute dresses or clothes but you can always search the Internet to know  what is the best sewing machine for quilting. Sewing your dog’s dresses can be enjoyable and fun.
  4. Play time/ Train time. Play time can also be set as your training for your dogs. Teaching them some tricks such as the usual like, handshake, sit, up, roll-over, and stay can already be your bonding with them. Do not forget to carry some treats with you as a prize or reward every time they learn something new or every time they follow.

Mentioned above are just some of the practices fur moms do. Remember that it is important to know and learn your responsibilities the moment you decide to become a fur mom.

Select The Appropriate Dog Food For Your Pet

Why is good nutrition important for your dog?

Good nutrition is very important for your dog’s health, to keep your dog on weight, and to ensure that your dog gets the right ingredients. This starts when your dog is a puppy; the correct food composition and amount ensure that your puppy grows well and at the right place. This can prevent many health problems later in life. Even at a later age, you can ensure that your dog remains healthy or becomes healthy again with the right food. It is therefore very important that you regularly check what your dog’s food needs are and how much food your dog needs. Some owner puts some apple cider such as ‘goli reviews‘ to prevent their dogs in some skin problems.

What should you consider when choosing the right food for your dog?

Correct weight
Almost 50% of all dogs in the Netherlands are overweight. Being overweight increases the risk of health problems and increases the chance that your dog will die sooner. Up to 2 years earlier. Make sure your dog is the correct weight. This is very important.

Nice coat
When your dog is healthy, the coat will be shiny and clean. Also in older dogs. Does your dog suffer from dull coat or coat problems? This can be solved with the right nutrition.

Good defecation
Your dog’s stool gives you a lot of information. The stool should be nice and firm and easy to excrete by your dog. It is not good if your dog regularly suffers from loose stools.

Move smoothly
Movement is important to a dog. Most dogs suffer from osteoarthritis symptoms at an older age; such as stiffness and less easy movement. With additional ingredients such as glucosamine and gelatin hydrolyzate, these complaints can be reduced or even remedied.

Itching
Dogs occasionally scratch themselves. If your dog scratches or licks himself often, your dog is likely to have an allergic reaction. This can be a food allergy, but also atopy (allergy to environmental influences). In most cases, this can be solved very well with nutrition.

Age
When your dog is young, your dog will need to be fed different food than at a later age. The older dog also needs special nutrition. This keeps your dog healthy.

Neutered/sterilized
Unfortunately, too many dogs become overweight after being neutered or spayed. This increases the risk of health problems or premature death. Adjust your dog’s diet after spaying or neutering so that your dog maintains its weight. It is not necessary for your dog to gain weight after neutering or spaying.

Variety of feed
When your dog gets good and complete food, it is not necessary for the health of your dog to vary the diet. In fact, (too) rapid change in food composition can cause your dog’s intestines to become upset.

Treats
Of course, you want to pamper and reward your dog every now and then. That is important for your relationship with your dog. Remember that this reward must fit into your dog’s diet. That is why it is wise to reward your dog with some chunks of regular food. Then you can be sure that your dog will not ingest the wrong things. And your dog is just as happy with some kibble as he is with special biscuits.

Dyes
Dogs can smell very well. The preference for food is determined by the smell. Your dog is not interested in the color of the food. So ask yourself whether those different colors in your dog’s food are smart. Are all those dyes good for your dog?
