What are the Dog Food Secrets that most dog owners are not aware of?

Most, not all commercial dog food are junk!

It is stuffed with fillers, meat by-products, chemicals and preservatives, with one primary function; to sell commercial dog food to unsuspecting dog owners.

Unfortunately, most dog owners do not realize that feeding their family dog with a commercial dog food causes more harm than good. They are led to believe that the food product is filled with nutritional requirements.

In fact, dog owners are poisoning their pet dog everytime they are fed with the so-called pet food.

Veterinarians and dog nutritionists tell us that many commercial dog foods have inadequate proteins, fats vitamins and minerals.

Commercial food products are made from harmful ingredients that are simply unhealthy and a hazard to your dog's health and longevity.

Dogs have simple stomachs and short digestive tracts for digesting meat. They also lack the saliva enzyme amylase, which is necessary for pre-digesting starch.

Essentially dogs need the following ingredients in their food-

- Healthy animal fatty that is easily digestible and easily metabolized as a source of energy. Poultry such as chicken or turkey have more unsaturated fatty acids and are more suitable for dogs.

- Vegetable oils, such as soybean oil, lecithin corn oil, wheat germ oil, sesame seed oil or linseed oil all contain high levels of linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid for dogs.

- Carbohydrates is another important nutrient. Sources of carbohydrates can be found in rice, oatmeal, corn or wheat. These are easily digested when properly cooked.

- Fibre, a complex carbohydrate is essential for proper digestion and stool formation. Beet pulp, tomato promace, rice, soy hulls, oat hulls, and wheat bran are good sources of fibre.

- Vitamin and mineral is an absolute nutritional necessity for dogs. Although the vitamins and minerals make up less than 2% of the total food by weight, they provide some of the most crucial nutrients. These include 12 to 16 vitamins and 15 to 25 minerals.

Do not add food supplement, or vitamins, as it will cause more harm than good.

The next time when you buy your favorite dog food, think carefully and ensure the above essentials are in your dog food.
