Healthy Dog Foods For Beagles

Feb 20, 2008
One way of keeping the Beagles healthy and happy is to feed them with nutritionally balanced foods. Feeding them with the right kind of food helps promote good health and prevents sickness. How can I make sure if the foods I am giving my Beagles are nutritious?

There are many issues regarding commercial dog foods, homemade dog foods and natural dog foods. The use of commercial dog food is very common to most dog owners nowadays. It is for the simple reason that it is readily available in most grocery and pet supply stores. All you have to do is buy a pack or two from your favorite pet supply store, open the package and pour the contents in your dog's food dish. Easy isn't it? Feeding your Beagles isn't that hard after all.

However, in commercial dog foods, you can not be sure that your dog gets the essential nutrients his body needed. Dog food manufacturers claim that their products are preservative-free. But it was found out that most commercial dog foods contain ethoxyquin. Ethoxyquin is a powerful and toxic chemical that can cause kidney and liver damage, hair loss, blindness, leukemia, cancerous skin lesions, fetal abnormalities and chronic diarrhea. Don't be deceived by fancy advertisements. Make sure that their main concern is the dog's health, not in increasing their sales and profit.

That is one of the reasons why more dog owners are switching to natural homemade dog food. With homemade dog food, you can be sure that your Beagles get not just healthy but also safe foods. The only concern with natural dog food is the preparation. Dog owners, especially those who are busy and have countless other things to do think that preparing this food takes a lot of time and effort. Seek for your vet's advice before anything else. You can ask your veterinarian for tips on how to prepare your dog's food easily and correctly.

Playing with your dog, praising him for being obedient and making him look good are just part of being a dog owner. But a good dog owner makes sure that his pet is in good condition over-all. If in case you really want to use commercial dog food, be careful in selecting which one to give your dog. Remember to read the product labels carefully. Then, learn how to make healthy dog food. Generally, the food should contain 40% protein, 30% starch and 30% fiber.

Give your Beagles the right kind of food and expect him to live healthier, longer and happier.
