Maintaining Your Havanese Nutrition With A Raw Food Diet

Mar 31, 2008
The Havanese has quickly become one of the most popular toy breeds in the country today. But with so many genetic health problems that these dogs are prone to, it is essential that you maintain the proper balanced nutrition for your dog. One of the best ways to do this is to feed your Havanese a raw food diet. This is a relative straightforward diet that you can make in the comfort of your own kitchen, at a price that is most often more affordable than commercial dog foods. With so many different health scares that can occur when feeding your Havanese commercial dog food, wouldn't it be nice to know that your Havanese was getting the right balance of vitamins and minerals; without the concerns of tainted food that many dog owners face?

The Havanese is currently one of the most popular breeds among toy dog lovers. Only gaining in popularity since the 1970's, we are still learning much there is to know about these sweet and loveable little dogs. One of the most important things about Havanese ownership, however, is maintaining the proper balance of nutrition and exercise for your dog to help ensure that your dog has a long and happy life.

There are several schools of thought as to what is the best diet to feed your Havanese, but even so it is most commonly accepted that these little dogs need a well-balanced combination of meats, vegetables, and grain to stay healthy. The diet that is becoming that most popular amongst Havanese owners is the raw diet - a diet consisting of mainly raw meats and ground vegetables, combined with well cooked long grain rice. It is this diet that we will focus on here.

The biggest part of Havanese nutrition is making certain that they are getting all of the nutrients necessary to maintain their naturally long, shiny coat and playful nature. The main premise behind the raw diet being the best diet to feed your Havanese, is that the essential vitamins and nutrients in the meats and vegetables are not cooked out as they are in commercially processed dog food. This is especially vital for the Havanese, as they are prone to congenital defects, which can greatly affect their health.

You don't have to buy expensive raw food from a fancy boutique, either. You can actually make the best diet to feed your Havanese right in your very own kitchen. The most important part of making raw food a part of your Havanese nutrition, is to remember to perfectly balance the mixture with meats (such as chicken, beef, and lamb), vegetables (such as carrots), and add well-cooked long grain rice as a binder.

The best diet you can feed your Havanese is one that offers a complete balance of vitamins and minerals. There are a number of supplements available in veterinary supply stores and at vet offices around the world that you can feed your dog if you are afraid they may not be fulfilling your Havanese' nutrition needs from their food alone. While commercial dog food offers most dogs sustenance, they are not always the best for ensuring proper nutrition.

With so many different concerns that many dog owners have had to face with the commercial food that is available, wouldn't it be nice to know that your Havanese is getting the very best in nutrition possible? Making your own dog food for your Havanese is the best way to ensure that your dog is getting all of the vitamins and nutrients that they need and to help give you the peace of mind that your dog's food is safe and healthy.
