Giving Your Dog The Best In Havanese Nutrition

Aug 9, 2008
Maintaining proper Havanese nutrition is a vital part of owning one of these special little dogs. Their predisposition to certain genetic defects and health conditions makes it even more important to maintain the absolute best diet possible for your Havanese. Although there are several schools of thought as to what type of diet is best to feed a Havanese, everyone agrees that there is no substitute for the proper balance between meats, vegetables, and grains.

You can help to ensure that your Havanese is getting the very best in nutrition by maintaining a raw food diet for our dog. Raw dog food can be found in many pet boutiques around the country, and in many veterinary supply stores. But the best place to find a raw dog food for your Havanese is right in your very own kitchen. You can make raw dog food much cheaper than you can buy commercial dog foods.

Making your own raw dog food to help give your Havanese the proper nutrition is a relatively simple process. All that is necessary is to combine equal amounts of ground meat such as chicken or beef, together with ground raw vegetables like carrots. Generally, it is recommended that you combine your meat and vegetable mixture with well-cooked rice to hold it all together. This mixture should be stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator for no longer than a few days.

Due to that fact that the Havanese is such a small breed, it does not take much of this raw food mixture to make certain that you are giving your dog the very best in Havanese nutrition. About a cup of raw dog food each day is all that is necessary for most Havanese dogs. Some dogs may require more, and some less.

Proper Havanese nutrition requires a healthy balance of all essential vitamins and nutrients. You can get this by mixing equal portions of ground raw meats, such as lamb and beef, together with ground raw vegetables, such as carrots. Most people will generally recommend that you use cooked, long grain rice as a binder. If you choose to do so, be sure that the rice is completely cooked prior to mixing it with the meat and vegetables.

Once you have created your raw food mixture, be sure that you store it in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Part of maintaining proper Havanese nutrition is making certain that you don't make up too much food at one time, so that it doesn't spoil before your dog has a chance to eat it all. Only keep stored raw food in your refrigerator for about three or four days; after that, any leftovers need to be thrown away.

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?

It is much cheaper than one may think to give their dog the proper balance of food. And the peace of mind you get with knowing that your Havanese is getting the very best diet possible is well worth any cost.
