Dogs have a different nutritional need than humans and need to be fed a balanced diet. Dogs on a well-balanced diet live longer and feel better than those who don't. The best nutrition source for dogs is a quality commercial brand high in lean proteins like white meat and chicken breast, and of course, home-cooked food.

Let take a note on the essential aspects hidden amidst the concept of 'balanced diet' for your four-legged cuddle buddy.

  • Combine the nutrients

Dogs on a balanced diet are getting the nutrition they need without having to compromise their hard-earned sense of style. All dog owners need to provide their dogs with the best of everything. Commercial brand foods are loaded with chemicals, additives, preservatives, and other unhealthy ingredients that can do more harm than good to our four-legged friends. Don't wait another minute to give your dog the all-natural, balanced food that he deserves. Make today that you provide your best friend with the best food. Your dog will thank you for giving him the great dog food of his dreams.

  • Balance the diet

    The idea is to keep your dog's nutritional needs at a healthy level without creating an unbalanced diet. A balanced diet for dogs must contain proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids in proper order. The diet is designed to create foods that your dog will love and benefit from. These are carefully chosen to meet the specific nutritional needs of different breeds.

    These meals are made up of real food. Fresh ingredients so don't worry about what might not be in the dog food. The right ingredients making their balanced diet are chicken meal, beef heart, chicken by-products, vegetables, fruits and vegetables, corn, rice and other grains.

  • Human food is a strict 'NO"!

Never feed your dog the same foods humans eat. In the wild, dogs hunt and eat different foods from their prey, including fruits, vegetables, insects, worms. By doing this, we will ensure that our dogs have a much longer and healthier life.

Many people make the mistake of feeding their dogs too much human food. To get the most balanced diet for your dog, look for treats made with high-quality ingredients. With a balanced diet, you will also be making sure that your dog's intestines stay clean. This in itself, can keep many diseases from afflicting your dog.

For example, if you are giving your dog a "Kibble" every day, you should look for one that contains meat as the main ingredient. This way, your dog will get all the protein he needs, and you won't be providing him with any carbohydrates.

  • Feed your dog a 'dog's diet.'

The type of food you feed your dog will affect their health. Dogs need a balanced diet to build strong bones, muscles, and nerves.

Meat is a natural source of protein and should be included in any balanced diet for dogs. Avoid grains and potatoes together, focusing on lean meats and whole grains. Your dog will thank you!

Those who worry about the chemicals in commercial foods can opt for 100% raw or home-cooked meals. The key to a healthy, long, and happy life for a dog is providing them with an optimal diet.

  • Note dog's age and activities

Dogs fed on local-made and ordinary commercial brand dog food experience increased weight gain, a lack of energy, excessive hair loss, and decreased stamina and libido. The best food for dogs is dry food with low moisture content as it has less fat and less fat. Many dogs just need a little bit more variety in their daily meals.

In general, the rule is moderation - lean meat, mild-flavoured or vegetables and fibre should make up the main ingredients of any good diet. It is a good idea to talk to your dog's vet before you buy a new dog or adopt one. They will be able to give you advice about what kinds of foods your dog needs based on their size, breed and activity level.
