I. The three main elements of nutrition for dogs

1. Animal protein-based

Dogs are omnivores; people want to eat anything, but their nature still leans toward meat. Therefore, it is best to feed a diet containing animal protein, especially in puppies at normal developmental stages, supplemented with about 8-9 grams of protein per kilogram per day. There are many ways to eat animal protein, such as beef, fish, chicken, eggs, beef or chicken liver, milk, etc. However, in general, fish is the richest in protein and should be fed to dogs as much as possible. The nutrient second only to protein is fat, which puppies need to be twice as much as dogs. Meat and dairy products are still an indispensable source of the fat puppies need to grow, but note that fish is safer to cook.

2. Provide adequate vitamins

Vitamins are an important factor in physical strength and metabolism. Healthy dogs can synthesize vitamin C in their bodies, but other foods containing vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and D wait to be supplemented by the main feeder. Therefore, when arranging three meals for the dog, should kind of food should be included in the menu. The problem with mixing beef liver, chicken liver, eggs, and dairy products in the food is that dogs may not like these foods, so they should be mixed with foods that they usually like and let them eat so as not to create an impact bias or a vitamin deficiency.

3. Foods that should not be consumed

When dogs see their families at the dinner table eating large fish, meat, and tasty snacks, they crave them too. However, to consider his health, the dog should be denied begging food for all but dinner. The following foods should be collected.

① Fish and milk fresh from the refrigerator dysentery is easily caused>

②Squid, octopus, shellfish, shrimp, crab and other seafood not easy to digest>

③ Chicken or fish bones sometimes cause intestinal bleeding>

④ Sweet preserves can be a major cause of tooth decay and obesity>

⑤ Stimulating spices

Balanced nutrition promotes healthy development, strengthens immunity to disease, and resists harsh external environments factors such as temperature. According to research, many dogs are now fed leftovers. In today’s age of abundant food, there are still many dog owners who feed their dogs leftovers in the mistaken belief that dogs have the same nutritional structure as people.

1. Feeding utensils

As a food bowl, thick ceramic pots are generally less likely to be broken by dogs. If you cook meat for your dog, you can use a pot with a long-handled lid, but from a sanitation standpoint, it’s best to keep your dog’s cooking utensils separate from the rest of the kitchen cookware. Of course, be sure to wash all the bowls and utensils after each meal and store leftover canned food properly with plastic lids on. As with people, it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days and then thrown away if you can’t eat it all, as the food many bacteria invisible to the naked eye.

2. Vitamins and minerals

There is a need for regular proactive vitamin supplementation. Your dog should be getting all the vitamins and minerals it needs from a nutritionally balanced dog food. However, there are certain periods when dogs need special vitamin supplements. For example, during pregnancy, during lactation and the growth period of puppies, and during recovery from illness must also be supplemented. However, you must supplement under the guidance of a veterinarian or specialist, as oversupplementation and deficiencies can also be harmful.

Dogs need calcium too

Dogs have a high need for calcium, especially puppies in the growing season and nursing bitches. Rather than taking calcium pills, calcium is supplemented in a more absorbable way, such as adding calcium powder to soup or mixing food.

4. Vitamin tablets

Dogs are often deficient in vitamins, but a good tasting vitamin tablet can be a reward for your dog.

5. Bone meal

Sterilized bone powder is a good source of calcium. However, it is important to consult a veterinarian or specialist and use different doses for different sizes, ages and breeds of dogs.

[Ark Review]

There is a lot that goes into the feeding of a dog. Dogs need vitamins, minerals and calcium supplements. There are many different kinds of food for dogs. It is best to choose a food that is balanced in carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals. If the dog cannot accept a dog-only diet, owners should add dog food to other foods at least daily to ensure your dog’s nutritional balance.

Nutritional supplements are usually capsules or powders.

Dogs need five nutrients

1. Meat

Meat provides the elements needed for bone growth and cellular tissue regeneration and boosts metabolism; however, eating meat alone is not enough, so no more than half of the dog’s meat should provide rich protein.

2. Fat

The fats contained in meat and plants provide the fatty acids that dogs need on all sides of the body for healthy, beautiful skin, hair, and hair.


The other nutrients a dog needs each day should come from carbohydrates such as cereals, rice, dough, dry dog food, and potato boys. Carbohydrates add weight to your dog’s food and help the intestines move properly ……

4. Vitamins

Other supplemental vitamins such as calcium tablets, vitamin tablets, and bone powder can provide the needed vitamins to order nutritional balance.

5. Hydration

Dogs lose water every day. Water is about 60% of an adult dog’s body weight and about 150% cc per day but if there is too much water, it won’t taste like food

[Ark Review]

Some people are not only rich, but they love their dogs so much that they feed them only meat for a long time. The long term nutritional imbalance gives their dogs acute dysentery, vomiting and other diseases that jeopardize their health. The above feeding methods cannot provide the dog with the nutrition to meet its requirements. Therefore, our dog friends should know what is suitable for their dogs. If economic conditions allow, it is better to buy dog food that is sold in the market.
