RAW FEEDING FOR PUPPIES

We all want the best for our pets and we want our pets to be healthy and happy. You can improve your dog’s health by choosing the best diet. If you’ve heard about raw food for dogs you might be wondering if it will suit your own dog. There are a few things to consider before you decide on whether a raw rood diet is right for your dog.



Raw food for dogs has to be good, right? It sounds like clean eating for humans. Surely, anything natural is better for us. This is mostly true but it depends on what the raw food is that you’re giving your dog and it also depends on what age and stage your dog is at.

There are lots of different diets suggested for dogs and one of those is the raw food diet.

Deciding whether it’s a good choice for your pet or not will depend on specific factors such as the dog’s age, his health and whether or not he currently has any conditions that must rely on a particular nutritional balance.



What do I feed my dog on a raw food diet?



When feeding your dog a raw food diet, it means that you’re going to focus on foods like fruits and vegetables, lean raw meats and some types of dairy. Certain types of dogs do well on raw food diets, but others don’t. If you decide that you want to do this, then you need to understand the right balance for your dog.



There are many benefits for your dog from a raw food diet. You’ll notice that she has more energy, that her coat looks better and that she seems healthier. But this is only true if you feed your dog the raw food that is best for her.



The closer dogs can eat to the way of their ancestors is good for them which is why some dog foods are so bad. They contain far too much grain and dogs are carnivores. If you choose the raw food diet for your dog, you’ll need to buy meats like beef or liver, chicken and bones. But always remember that the bones must be raw, not cooked for your dog. If you want to feed your dog pork you’ll need to do your research first. It is not safe to feed dogs raw pork due to the parasite content in pork. However, pork is rich in a type of fat that is difficult for dogs to digest. This can lead to inflammation of the pancreas in your dog. It can also produce digestion problems. This is why you’ll need to check with your veterinarian about how much cooked pork is suitable for your specific size and breed of dog.



Bones can be included in a diet of raw food for dogs. You have to be careful with bones because dogs can get them lodged in their intestines or injure their mouths. Bones must be large enough so that a puppy or dog cannot fit the whole bone in its mouth and they shouldn’t be able to swallow the bone whole.


Dogs can have certain types of food like raw eggs or yogurt on a raw food diet. The diet, when done correctly can help your dog live a long and happy life.



Is raw food ideal for puppies?


If you’re considering raw food for dogs, it might be because you have a new puppy. It’s not a good idea if you have a puppy to put them on a raw food diet. Because puppies are in a stage of constant growing, you can unintentionally rob them of the nutrients they need. This is important to grow healthy muscles, strong joints and bones. If you’re feeding them too much raw meat they may not get enough of the nutrients they need. This also applies with too much of another food in their diet without balance.


If you feed a puppy a raw food diet, you have to be sure that they’re getting the right amount of calcium too. Generally, it’s better not to give a puppy a raw food diet. There are good puppy foods that are natural and healthy for your dog and this is a good alternative. You may want to switch to raw food for dogs as your puppy gets older.
