A Happy and Healthy Dog

Aug 17, 2007
Have you tried out all sorts of dog foods and you saw that none of them is good enough for your beloved pet? Well it is time to take the matter into your own hands.

As you probably know, day after day more chemicals are mixed into the dog food recipes. Some of these chemicals are artificial flavors and colors, preservatives or propylene glycol. Like a human being, your dog needs his own diet and nutritional intake. It is best to provide him with the amount of nutrients and proteins he needs for a healthy life. As every creature, dogs need a balanced amount of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and water. Not all dog food producers give their best to create a balanced product.

Try to feed your dog as natural as you can. Maybe you bought once a great dog food you heard about on TV or saw commercials all over town and when you fed your dog the food, he did not even touch it. Afterwards you left him the full bowl and went to see your show and the other day the bowl was empty.

Well maybe the poor thing got hungry and ate the food due to that reason, not that it was good for him or that he enjoyed it. If this thing happens, do not insist with that same brand. Buy something else; if he likes it, he should be very happy and anxious just seeing the bag in your hand.

Dogs don't need just dog food for a happy and healthy life. Like us people, they enjoy a desert or a snack. This is where doggie treats come into play. Preparing your dog a little treat will not take long and you will have a greater pleasure seeing him enjoying it.

Cooking dog biscuits for example is very easy. All you need is whole-wheat flour (1 cup), nonfat powder milk (1/2 cup), sugar (1 teaspoon), salt (1 teaspoon), 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of meat granules and 1/2 cup of hot water. Dissolve the meat granules in hot water, cool it and mix it in a bowl with the other ingredients. Knead the resulting dough until it forms a ball. Spread the dough and bake it for 30 minutes on a cookie sheet. Cut it in pieces and serve it to your dog. He will love it.

Another good treat for your dog is Frosty Paws. You can make it at home. Recipes are various for this treat. I am going to tell you my recipe: mix a quarter of a yogurt, a banana, 1 big teaspoon of peanut butter and one teaspoon of honey. Use mixer or blender to get it well mixed. Now freeze it in ice trays; once frozen you can store it in the fridge. Be careful not to serve it too cold.
