When it comes to feeding their dog, most pet owners are not aware of what their pets are ingesting. Most of the commercially produced pet foods and pet treats are full of harmful preservatives and by-products that can cause serious health problems for your pet. Phosphoric Acid, Butylated Hydroxysanisole, Ethoxyquin, Sorbitol or Propylene Glycol; which is used in antifreeze, are just some of the harmful products found in many mass produced pet foods. The truth of the matter is that there have been over 5,000 pet food scares since 2006. This includes but is not limited to all of the pet foods and pet treats that were recalled. Many of these by-products have been linked to cancer, obesity, heart attack, kidney disease and death. In fact, there were over 3,600 pet deaths linked to tainted pet foods.
The best way to ensure that that your pet is consuming safe and healthy dog food and dog treats is by feeding them homemade dog treats. Homemade dog treats have become increasingly popular amongst concerned pet owners and they have taken the pet industry by storm. Homemade dog food and homemade dog treats are an excellent alternative to mass produced pet products, however most owners are not aware of the nutritional needs of their dogs. It’s not uncommon for many homemade diets to be lacking the key nutrients a dog needs to maintain optimal health. Some believe, that homemade dog diets are way to time consuming and a bit expensive.
Before you start feeding your pet a homemade diet you need to have the answers to the following questions.
- What does my dog need for his food? What doesn’t he need?
- How much should my new puppy eat?
- Are there specific vitamins and minerals that my puppy needs?
- How much food should an adult dog consume?
- Are there “breed specific” dog foods?
- Is my puppy or dog overweight? Underweight?
- Is my dog food safe?
- Are there certain foods that my dog needs?
- What foods can be harmful to my dog?
