It’s so hard to say no when your pet whines for a drumstick and stuffing. But before you sneak them forbidden bites of grandma’s turkey, take a look at how you could be feeding them better. With the right bowl of food, they’ll not be less interested in your dinner, but also more nourished overall.
Most pet parents are used to giving their pet one kind of pet food at every meal, every single day. But imagine if we did that as humans. Not healthy or fun, right? Pets need a mix of protein, carbs and fiber, just like us. So instead of looking at diets as one size fits all, it’s time to think how they can come together to give your pet the most health benefits.
WHAT GOES INTO THE PERFECT BOWL?
Start from the bottom with the base
A complete and balanced base should provide around 90% of the nutrients your pet needs. Try any combination of all-natural dry, canned, dehydrated, freeze-dried, refrigerated, lightly cooked or raw pet food.
Combat the dry food blues with a hydrator
Turkey just wouldn’t be turkey without the gravy. Similarly, a hydrator adds flavor and moisture to their food — which is important, since many pets aren’t getting enough water. Try tasty goat’s milk or savory bone broth. Pumpkin works well too, because it not only adds lots of moisture but dietary fiber as well to keep them regular.
Add a cherry on top with a balancer
A balancer doesn’t just add flavor and variety to your pet’s bowl to get them excited for dinner — it also adds extra vitamins, minerals, protein and enzymes to even out their meal. For example, freeze dried raw food, frozen raw food and fresh goat milk as toppers all add the nutrients lost in more processed foods.
Boost the nutrients with supplements
We take our vitamins daily (or at least try to remember to), and so should our pets. Additional vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber help them live longer and happier lives. Goat’s milk, pumpkin, bone broth, powder supplements and oils are easy ways to ensure your pet’s bowl really has everything they need.
