HERE ARE SIX THINGS TO
THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU’RE
THINKING ABOUT FOOD
Sheepdogs shouldn’t eat like Shih Tzus. Different breeds, different needs. Small dogs prefer smaller kibble. Big dogs tend to gulp so raw or freeze-dried diets slow them down.
You can’t eat like you used to and neither can your pet. Energetic puppies need 2-3 times more food than adults. Senior dogs need smaller portions and extra moisture from a good hydrator.
Is your dog getting a dad bod? Try a raw diet. Highly active dogs need more moisture and protein from a topper and bone broth. Underweight dogs might need a high-calorie food supplement.
Hot climates mean a hot dog so hydrate them with goat milk. Cold climates pack on pounds so reduce their base and add a warm broth. Suburban dogs generally burn more calories than city canines. If you move, adjust their diet accordingly.
Food is often the best medicine. From dental health to mental health, there’s a supplement that can help. For overall wellness, try lightly cooked diets. Allergies and sensitive stomachs respond well to limited ingredient diets. Diabetic pets should avoid the carbs in kibble.
Winter hibernation burns fewer calories, so consider reducing portions. Summer leaves pets extra thirsty and hungry so a hydrator may help. Upset tummies can be soothed with seasonal pumpkin.
As always, talk to your vet to make sure you understand all the health conditions of your dog.
