What Dog Foods Should You Buy

Apr 18, 2008
When choosing a dog food you have to look at many different things. The thing I really like about dry dog food is that it is easy to measure. My dog likes both wet and dry dog food, so I just go with what works best.Some dogs are picky, and you have to use just moist dog food. I just fill his bowl with and he eats it right up.

It's good to keep your dog on a regulated diet that doesn't involve a ton of different foods. Eating people food is a big no-no and can cause your dogs a lot of problems. Not eating dog food can cause things like tummy aches, obesity, and behavior problems.

Make sure that you feed your dog according to how much he weighs. Read the back of your dog food for a chart on how much food to give him. When you start a dog on a new food, you might have to take special care so that he doesn't get sick.

Dry dog food can be mixed with water to give your dog something more moist. I just stick with dry though because you can barely smell it when it is just dry, but moist food smells bad. I think that dogs probably like moist dog food better, but some flavors of dry dog food are very good tasting and so I think it is just fine.

Make sure that your dog gets enough exercise and that he has water all day long. I like to exercise with my dog in a local park where we can get in shape together. Maybe some day I will be able to keep up with him! We go for three walks a day and he never has a problem going to the bathroom which is good because it shows that dry dog food does not cause constipation.

The vitamins in most dog foods are supposed to help give your dog a great, shiny coat, and very good nails. These are some of the factors that determine if your dog is in good health. Pick a top quality brand that is supposed to be some of the most nutritious dog foods for dogs and another great thing is that there are so many different flavors out there that it is hard to find one that your dog doesn't like. I give my dog lamb and rice all the time because it is not good to mix up flavors all the time. You want your dog to be on a good regulated diet so that he does not have any stomach problems.

My dog eats about a cup of dog food everyday. I don't have to force him to stop eating, but he gets excited when I put it out for him. I also give him some dog food treats when he comes home from his walks. He likes milk bones too.
