Feeding An Adult Dog

feeding-an-adult-dogWhen choosing pet food for dogs, always remember not to exchange quality for quantity. Premium quality pet food generally costs more because they are made of high-quality ingredients; the more inexpensive ones are usually soybean or corn-based and contain fillers and other additives.

Kibble has greater caloric density, meaning the amount of water it contains is lesser compared to canned pet food. While this is not really an issue with smaller breeds of dogs, it can be difficult for large dogs to eat enough amounts of canned food to meet their caloric needs, especially that canned food contains more than 70% water. So it’s a good idea to feed kibble or semi-moist food to dogs that weigh more than 30 pounds.

A dog’s daily ration should contain proper amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats which are necessary to meet the animal’s daily energy requirement. The dietary requirement of dogs can vary depending on several factors including the animal’s activity level, medical history, and lifestage. Ask your Pets care tips, click on the link.
