Food is the cornerstone for the health of your dog. However, there are so many different types of dog food that it can be difficult to choose the food that’s best suited for your dog. That’s why today, we will explain what aspects you should consider when buying food for your beloved companion.
Which food is the best for your dog?
Breed and age
One of the first things that’s important when choosing dog food is the breed of your dog. Dog food is often separated into three different categories; small, middle-sized and large. These categories are defined by the weight of the dog.
The brand Eukanuba even offers dog food made specifically for a certain breed. This food is made with the well-known issues and diseases of the certain breed in mind and will protect your dog against them.
Furthermore, it’s important to take into account the age of your dog. Most dog food is made for a certain age group such as puppy’s, mature dogs or senior dogs.
Another thing that’s important when selecting dog food is how much exercise the dog has on a daily basis. An active work or sportdog requires a different type of food than its lazy counterpart that spends the entire day in its basket. Brands like Specific offer food especially made for extremely active dogs.
If your dog is perfectly healthy, you can simply go for regular food, also known as ‘maintenance food’. This food will form a balanced diet that will protect your dog against health issues and diseases. We have maintenance food available in the brands Specific, Eukanuba, and Iams.
If your dog has certain health issues, the right diet can help minimize the symptoms and stimulate a fast recovery. The brands Royal Canin, Specific and Eukanuba offer special food made for dogs with health issues like diabetes, allergies or arthritis.
Obesity and digestion
For those faithful companions that love the dog treats a little too much and get a bit overweight, there is the option of low calorie food. This food will support weight loss for your dog so that he or she will quickly be back to a healthy weight.
Finally, it’s possible that your dog has an intolerance for a certain type of food or a sensitive digestive system. If this is the case, you can choose for the special food of brands like Royal Canin and Eukanuba.
