Feeding time for your dog

Wednesday, July 13, 2011
posted by Jim Murphy

When it comes to feeding your dog, the first step is to determine the correct quantity of food to give him in order to maintain a healthy weight. Next, it’s critical that you establish a routine. Offering your pet meals at the same time every day can promote digestive health and regular bowel movements. For dog owners, this can add up to predictable walk times.  Your pet will also feel more secure knowing that meals come at regular intervals and this security can create a stronger bond.  Knowing when your dog will be hungry can also be used to plan a training session.  Part of your pets meal allotment can be offered as rewards instead of dog treats. Dietary changes should be made gradually to help reduce upsets and unpleasant surprises. Remember, your pets count!
