Of course, we all know that part of taking good care of pet dogs is feeding them. Every child knows that.
Sadly, however, many owners of dogs do not really understand what to feed their dogs. Some just grab whatever food is most conveniently available, some opt for the least expensive and some believe that feeding dogs with food off the human table is perfectly acceptable.
The truth is that feeding dogs is no different than feeding people although the ingredients are quite different. In other words, foods which may be very healthy for you and me might be harmful and even poisonous to dogs although they may in actual fact contain all the important proteins, vitamins and minerals.
As a pet owner, you should have already become familiar with those foods which can be so very harmful to your dog but just in case you have not yet, here are some of them: Foods and beverages containing caffeine (chocolate, coffee, coke, tea), food and beverages containing alcohol, marijuana or derivatives of tobacco, food high in fat content (avocado, oils, macadamia nuts), dairy foods (milk, eggs, cheese), citric fruits (grapefruits, tangerines, oranges), bones (chicken, turnkey, fish), fresh or dry fruits (grapes – raisins, plums – prunes), sharp vegetables (garlic, onions, radishes), salt, sugar, yeast.
Now that you understand that human foods are not good for dogs, be sure that you purchase dog food that is high in nutrition and contains the most natural ingredients. And if your dog has particular health problems such as obesity, diabetes, arthritis, etc. Well, there are special formula foods which are available to accommodate those needs.
