Choosing the 'Right' Dog Food
Each person has their own special nutritional needs, which are based not only on the individual taste but above all on the physical conditions.
In dogs, it’s no different. When it comes to choosing the ‘right’ dog food and looking at dog food reviews, it’s necessary to take into consideration the breed, age, lifestyle (i.e. the physical activity of the animal) and the state of health.
Let’s break it down into:
- Puppy needs
- Adult Dog Needs
- Senior Dog Needs
It goes without saying, the needs of a puppy are markedly different from those of a full-grown dog.
The puppy is typically bursting with energy and needs a lot of calories for both physical and mental growth. In addition, the immune system, bones, muscles, skin, fur, teeth and every other part of the body have yet to be developed. This subsequently increases the requirement for nutrients. High-quality puppy food, which is designed specifically for the needs of the growing animal, can offer just this.
With puppy nutrition, there is more to consider than just the selection of high-quality raw materials: It must be the right amount of essential minerals contained, including vitamin D, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and calcium.
Adult Dog Needs
Even full-grown dogs need a variety of raw materials to master everyday life full of energy. In order to stay healthy, a dog requires all nutrient groups. For example, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, oils and of course proteins. All these element need to be in the best possible ratio to each other and as close to the natural conditions of dog nutrition as possible. Healthy dog food should be nutritious and balanced, giving the animal exactly what it needs during its adult phase.
Senior Dog Needs
With regards to more elderly dogs, they have a much slower metabolism and life is not as active as it used to be. Therefore, they require significantly less energy and calories than puppies or adult dogs. With this in mind, as the intake of their food decreases, it is important to rely on high quality food, which is easy to digest and contains many animal proteins. A high-quality senior food for dogs contains concentrated, high-quality fats in small quantities and easily digestible carbohydrates.
