Rotation feeding involves introducing various types of food components, textures, and flavors into the dietary regimen of dogs based on philosophies of holistic nutrition.
While there are several advantages of rotation feeding in dogs, there are also some potential downsides to the practice. These include the following:
- Rotation feeding needs careful planning and proper management to avoid repercussions.
- Some dogs with food allergies or sensitivities can be too picky with their food and may not take well to rotation feeding.
- If you have the practice of buying large bags of food, you need to buy smaller ones because they may lose their freshness. Having several types of products to feed your dog can mean that it will take longer for a bag of pet food to be used up.
- If you choose to practice rotation feeding with your dog, make sure to consult your pet’s health care or pet nutritionist. There is a need to ensure that your pet will receive a nutritionally-balanced diet without compromising their health and wellbeing.
