Elderly Dog Care
Take Care of Your Ageing Dog The Right Way
As your dog gets older, you will need to give them the best ageing dog care possible. This care may include switching your dog to a raw food diet.
Why should your dog care for your ageing dog include a raw food diet?
The answer to this question is simple.
Canned or dry dog food that you give your ageing dog today is cooked at very high temperatures.
The high temperatures use to cook the processed dog food cooks all the vitamins and minerals out of the food.
Processed dog food also contains fillers that could be hazardous to your dog’s health!
Raw dog food, on the other hand, is a healthier part of the ageing dog care that you give your dog, because the nutrients and vitamins are still in the food itself.
In this way, there is no need for unhealthy fillers. The raw food you feed your dog is healthy for his entire body, not just the digestive system.
The meat and bones strengthen and clean his teeth, because he has to work hard to chew his food. This will also make his breath smell sweeter.
The vegetables and fruits you add to his diet will help to make his bones and muscles stronger so that he can be the happy energetic dog you have always known and loved.
If you feed your dog the organs, such as the kidneys and stomach of an animal, he will receive the nutrients maintained in these organs to alleviate any digestive problems.
If you want to make your own raw dog food as part of your special dog care, you may want to check with your local butcher to see if he has any chicken, beef, rabbit, or pork leftovers to sell you.
However, if you can’t stomach the thought of preparing homemade raw dog food, it can be obtained from specialty raw food suppliers or pet stores.
Although the food takes a few minutes more to prepare, compared to processed food, you will save time and money in the long run because your dog will be much healthier and happier than ever before.
When you include raw dog food in ageing dog care practices, you save money on vet care. You also have no need for expensive supplements, because the raw food provides the nutrients your dog needs to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Be sure to check with your vet before giving your dog raw food.
The reason I say this is because your vet may have specific dietary restrictions for your individual dog’s needs. Make sure that the portion of food that you give your dog is specific to his size and breed.
If you want a healthier happier dog, give them raw dog food; it’s healthy food for dogs and your dog will thank you for it!
