Two Tips For Making Homemade Puppy Food


Visitors: 170

Homemade puppy food is the safest and healthiest way to feed your puppy. There are two things you need to know before you venture into the world of natural dog food.

The first thing to know is that dogs cannot eat everything that we can eat. Some of our well loved food is actually poison to them. Here is a list of foods to avoid.

  • A common knowledge thing is chocolate but did you know that includes anything with caffeine in it? Also, don't give your dogs any candy.
  • Garlic (raw, cooked, and powdered) is highly toxic to dogs.
  • Onions, onion powder, and chives
  • Mustard seeds
  • Grapes and raisins
  • Macadamia Nuts and Walnuts
  • Mushrooms
  • Yeast Dough, it can continue to rise in your dogs stomach
  • avocados
  • Raw Eggs
  • Tomatoes
  • Dogs have a much different sense of taste then we do. Because their noses are so much more sensitive then ours is they do not need a lot of seasonings in their food. It's kind of like feeding a baby, use your seasonings sparingly and make the food bland.

    The second thing to be aware of is that all dogs are different in their nutritional needs. A tiny lap dog is not going to need the same amount of food that a large dog will nor will a large dog need the same amount of food that a medium working dog is going to need.

    The reason that it is so important to give your dog the nutritional requirements that he needs is because when a dog get the nutrition that he needs he lives an average of eight to ten more years and those are healthy years.

    Most dogs die a premature death from preventable diseases due to lack of nutrition. Dog Food Secrets will show you the proper nutrition your dog needs, how to read the labels of commercial dog food to see if it is safe, give you easy homemade recipes to give your dog all the nutrition he needs and answers important health concerns.
