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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
