Good Nutrition for Your Pooch

Where do we begin when it comes to feeding your dog. First of all, let me say that you should never feed poor quality food. It’s usually more expensive because the quantities are increased in order to fulfill the dogs nutritional requirements. In addition to this, it is very likely that poor quality food will cause digestive problems.  So get a high quality food and make sure to look at the label for recommendations. If you have a puppy, it is recommended that you feed him three times a day until is is between five and six months old on average. Then cut the feeding down to twice a day but increase the food so they are getting the same amount. Some people choose to feed their dog once per day but I would recommend twice. Once in the morning and once at night. Factor in his treats.  Check with your vet as far as feeding requirements for your type of dog.  Read the labels and do not overfeed. Watch the amount of treats that you give him. Too many treats can make him overweight. Make sure that he has plenty of exercise. One last thought, don’t change the number of times that you feed him. If you’re feeding your dog twice a day, stick to it. Always remember not to overfill his dog dish.

Remember, your pets count!

I have an older cat with multiple health issues including Feline Kidney Disease. Astros Oil is a natural product that I’ve been giving to him for quite a lone time. I’ve also gave it to my cat Molly, who passed away three years ago as she also had kidney disease. This product was a lifesaver. It helped both of my cats and continues to help my cat Atlantis. He is eating better, has gained weight and is living a higher quality life! Find out more about Astro’s Oil from their website: Astro’s
