Care dog – Nutrition

Nutrition needs of the dog Nutrition needs of the dog The dog belongs to the carnivores (meat eaters), but can also be counted on the omnivores (alteters) due to its natural dietary habits. In nature, dogs hunt for large herbivores, which also utilize the intestines, which contain a lot of plant material. Therefore, the body and metabolism of the dog is comparable to that of an omnivore. For example, the dog has a teeth with teeth and choose which makes it not only possible to tear meat, but also to chew the food properly. Also, the intestinal system is longer compared to that of a pure carnivore for which additional digestion of the plant material is allowed through the intestinal flora. The nutritional requirements are also not as specific as the cat’s diet, because of the nutrition of the omnivore, which causes self-preparation of nutrition to lead to nutritional deficiencies or health problems.

Bread, nutrition, raw or self-prepared? The commercial foods, such as dog breads and wet foods, are all complete foods. In addition, giving raw foods or self-preparing meals among some owners is very popular. Because commercial foods are complete, none of these foods cause food shortages.We believe that each diet has its own pros and cons. Which diet you give your pet is therefore dependent on your own personal preference. In any event, no food can be placed above the other by definition.
Dry dumps Dried fodder contains little water. The moisture content is usually below 14%, but usually only between 7 and 10%. Because dry bumps contain so little moisture it is long-lasting. As a result, it is possible to leave a tray of chunks all day long. In dogs, however, it is preferable to give a number of customized meals throughout the day. Especially for dogs with a tendency to overweight this is the case, As a full bowl of chickens throughout the day can of course be very seductive for these dogs.
As regards the prevention of dental plaque, tartar and the resulting dental and health problems with our pets, it has been established that sticky and soft foods should be avoided. Giving cheeks to be chewed is therefore better for teeth than giving canned food. This has to be done because some cheeks are easily separated by chewing small pieces of food easily sticking between teeth and teeth. So also by giving dry dents canothpaste and tartar develop. There are also so-called dental diets on the market where the cuttings are less crumbling and the cuttings are also a little bigger so that the dog is really good at chewing. With these nibbles, less dental plaque and tartar are often formed than with ordinary nibbles. However, because of the popularity of dental health in our pets, it is important to choose exclusively certified products that have actually proven their effectiveness. More information on these special dietary supplements can be found on our website.
Nat food Due to the high moisture content, wet nutrition is more perishable than dry food. As a result, wet nutrition can not be made unlimited throughout the day and the food that is not eaten should not be left for long.
Night foods are often experienced by dogs very often, especially if it is slightly warmed up. This is because of wet nutrition, more flavor comes from dry food. The smell of wet nutrition thus stimulates appetite. Hence, dogs who do not like to eat with some warmed nutrition can best be tried to increase food intake.
With regard to the effects of oral nutrition on oral health, it has been established that soft sticky nutrition is responsible for the formation of dental plaque and tartar. It is therefore advisable to keep in good health a good denture, To avoid as much food as possible and to combine it with dry foods and kauws nuts. A daily toothpick is, of course, the best way to prevent teeth problems.
Animals with urinary tract problems often benefit from extra moisture absorption. In these patients it is important that they absorb enough moisture as this can help prevent the formation of bladder gravel, bladder stones and bladder inflammation. Now it’s hard to make an animal clear enough to drink water and so it is often advised to give canned food in these situations. Due to the fact that canned food supplies 85% of water, this stimulates the absorption of moisture through the feed.

It is sometimes recommended to place dogs with a slight overweight on a diet with wet nutrition to let the animal lose weight. Since wet nutrition contains 65 to 85% of moisture and moisture does not provide energy, the same amount of nutrition will provide much less energy compared to dry food, and it is therefore possible to treat a little bit of overweight with canned food.
Raw or self-prepared Giving healthy foods or self-preparing meals has gained popularity in the past few years with dog owners. Commercially available raw foods are also called KVV (Kant en Klaar Vers Voeding of Complete Vers Voer). Others are more in favor of feeding on the basis of BARF (Bones and Raw Foods of Biologically Appropriate Raw Food) or NRV (Natural Raw Nutrition or Natural Raw Foods). Unlike BARF, no vegetables, fruits, cereals or unnatural supplements are used in NRV. Norv can not feed the food for a healthy dog, but it must consist of as large a number of pieces as possible.
The big advantage of raw foods is that teeth problems can be well prevented and that it matches a little more with the dog’s natural nutrition. However, the major disadvantage is that raw meat is very perishable and the food must be stored in the freezer. The latter can sometimes make it difficult to proportionate. What is further important to realize is that the diet is raw and that the meal needs to be thought of properly. People are very sensitive to Salmonella infections. Dogs are happily less sensitive to Salmonella, which makes it easy to give raw meat. However, it is important to know that infections with Salmonella in dogs may occur because the bacterium can survive the stomach passage through nutrient fats. For this reason, it is advisable to give raw foods exclusively to healthy adult dogs.

How do I know if a good quality food is? Within each type of food there are many different available brands that can differ in terms of quality in quality. But how do you know if a diet is of good quality?
Salt content Salt can sometimes be used by producers as a flavor enhancer, which can feed up to 7 times more salt than the recommended content. Too much salt is not healthy in pets, just like humans. Therefore, a diet does not contain too much salt. Additionally, the presence of any artificial color, flavor and flavorings may also be considered.
Digestibility A nutrition with a good quality has high digestibility. The amount of faeces produced is therefore a good indication of the quality of food. It is generally suggested that the quality of the diet is better when the dog produces less and more severe feces. Nutrition
by breed Some brands of animal feeds have nutrition for individual breeds in their assortment. To date, however, there is no evidence that the nutritional needs vary between different breeds and so our view is that a breed-dependent diet for dogs is unnecessary.
Price In animal feed, it is usually that the price of the food gives a good indication of the quality. With more expensive products, higher quality raw materials with higher digestibility are usually used and more attention has been paid to a good balance of nutrients, which reduces the chance that excess salt is added. Because more expensive foods are usually more digestible, this means that daily needs less than a cheaper, less digestible product. This raises the price difference.

How much food should I give my dog? Packaging often lists guidelines on the amount of daily food. However, some dogs have a more active lifestyle or faster metabolism than other dogs, which can significantly differentiate the nutritional requirements between dogs. The follow-up of guidelines may lead to overweight over time in inactive dogs or dogs with slower metabolism. It is therefore generally better to keep an eye on the weight of the dog and to give it more or less nutrition. As long as your dog’s body weight remains alright, it’s not bad at all for the dog to eat less than advised on packaging.

Meals Foods can not be made available unlimited, but consist of an appropriate amount per day divided between 3 meals a day. By giving meals, the onset of overweight is quite good.

By nature, dogs are used to eating a big meal at regular times. The stomach is very elastic and can handle large amounts of food well.
Also, make sure your dog does not get food until you have eaten yourself. For dogs it is clear that you are the boss. Avoid further physical exertion before and after eating. This is especially important for dog breeds where gastric tipping occurs regularly.
Number of nutritional tips to prevent gastric tearing in sensitive races In the case of gastric torsion, often called gastric tearing, the stomach is rotated such that the blood supply of the stomach and any other organs such as the spleen is compromised. A dog’s womb is a disease that is acute and may be life threatening. The exact cause of a stomach tumor is unprecedented, but especially large dog breeds with a deep chest are seen frequently. The diet also appears to play a role, especially meal size, gas production and digestibility of the food.

In order to minimize the risk of gastric cancer, the following can be done in the field of nutrition: For gastrointestinal crops, smaller meals of a high fat diet can be given more often. However, the fat content of the diet should not be too high, because a too fat diet slows down gastrointestinal tract and justifies a gastrointestinal tract. Switching to another power supply should always be gradual. When you decide to switch to another type of brand, it is important to always do this gradually. New foods are always received by the dog enthusiastically and the dog will eat a lot of it. Due to the high amount of food, however, the dog has less appetite the following day and will therefore eat less. Many owners interpret this incorrectly by thinking that the dog does not like the new food. Always gradually change the way you mix the new food with the old food and never give more than the dog needs. Can I feed nutritional supplements with additional vitamins and minerals in addition to food? The advice is not to provide supplementary nutritional supplements with additional vitamins in addition to a commercial diet. Each commercially available diet already contains enough vitamins and minerals in itself. By supplementing it with the normal diet, there is a risk that the dog will absorb too many vitamins or minerals, which is as harmful to health as a deficiency.

Food for dogs
My dog ​​eats the stool of other dogs. Some dogs keep a strange habit of eating their own stool or those of other dogs. This is also called corprofagie. The main problem with corprofagie is that parasitic diseases, such as worm infections, are easily spread between dogs. Also, eating out of stool can lead to an unpleasant mouth odor.
It is normal for bitches to lick the pups in the first lifetime of the puppies to keep the nest clean. What the reason is why other dogs do it, there are several theories possible. For example, the distant ancestors of the dog could meet their need for vitamin B and K in this way, Minor dogs would eat the stool of dominant dogs, or would it arise from boredom and loneliness. An underlying cause could also be a disease in which metabolism is disturbed and the dog is inclined to eat more and thereby eat feces. In all other cases, it is a behavior problem the cause of which is unprecedented.

In cases where corprofagia is caused by a behavioral problem, one can take the following measures:

Ensure that your dog develops aversion against eating stools by applyingfor example feces to pepper or hair lacquer punishing eating stools is noticeable , This is also called pica and can be dangerous if the articles contain harmful substances or give rise to bowel perforations and bowel obstructions. The cause is again unprecedented and assumed to have the same basis as when eating stools, namely an underlying disease or behavioral problem. However, a mineral deficiency, such as a zinc deficiency, could also be a cause. The treatment is also about the same: make the eating of a particular object less attractive and punish wrong behavior. Often it appears to be the only solution to keep the dog just away from the object. Why does my dog ​​eat out of the trash can? Many dogs have an extensive taste and even eat foods that are no longer so fresh. This is not a behavioral problem, but really normal dog behavior. In nature, dogs also do not always catch a prey egg, so they are also keen on eating cadavers. Our domestic dog has survived this from his distant ancestors and, therefore, does not allow them to snuggle into the litter bin despite the very best dog food. This is not entirely without danger, because eating spoiled food is by no means healthy and can cause complaints such as vomiting and diarrhea. Unfortunately, learning can not. Restricting access to waste bins is therefore the only best solution in these situations. Why does my dog ​​eat grass? Some dogs occasionally eat grass. The reason why dogs do this is not exactly known. One theory would be that a naughty dog ​​would like to eat grass to break. On the other hand, there are also enough dogs to eat grass without wasting them. It is likely that a dog will eat grass because of the taste or because the dog naturally eats the herbivorous gut and therefore needs vegetable resources. Not that there is any food shortage, but a dog may need to eat a certain dietary texture that he misses in his normal diet. Just as we ever would like to eat chips.
