Breed specific Dog Food

Friday, June 15, 2012

Today, many brands of dog foods are specially formulated  not only for your dog’s age but for his breed. Energy dense foods may help compensate for the fact that smaller breeds have a higher metabolism and are also more finicky eaters than larger breeds. Some companies also state that the antioxidants in their small breed formula can help support a small dog’s longer life expectancy. Meanwhile, larger breed dogs are more susceptible to bone and joint ailments.  They may benefit from food containing glucoseamine and chondroitin which  prevents cartilage breakdown as well as a low carbohydrate, low fat diet to control the excess weight that can stress joints.

Remember, your pets count!
