Easy Feed Guidelines

Having been a dog owner for over 40 years I have come to learn the pitfalls of feeding your dog commercial food, or worse still supermarket cans.

Now I understand fully that dog food is expensive, however, so are vet bills, insulin, cortisone, pain killers, anti-inflammatory drug and others, all of which may end up being what your dog needs if his/her diet has been poor quality for many years.

It is no different to us! Yes prevention is better than cure.

If you are feeding your dog commercial brands be sure you know all about the calories and also make sure you balance that diet well.

Understand about unnecessary fillers preservatives and other nasties.

If you haven’t heard the "horror stories" about the tainted, and sometimes toxic, dog foods on the market, AND ABOUT ALL THE DOG FOOD RECALLS then at least do some research before choosing your dogs food.

Make yourself aware of the poor quality, sometimes useless, filler ingredients in many commercial dog foods and the dangers of many foods cooked in our homes for our dogs.

Life Onions, Chocolate, Grapes etc They can rob your dog of… IT'S ENERGY, IT'S HEALTH, AND EVEN OF IT'S VERY LIFE

Even if you prepare your dog's food at home, there's the danger of feeding the wrong type of food.

Most responsible dog owners, just want the best for your dog within a certain budget, right?

Feed them too much, and they get fat and develop serious health problems; feed them too little and they become scavengers and eat anything that looks like it might have a taste.

It certainly doesn't help that some dogs simply have no "full" meter, they'll eat until they get sick, and other dogs will pick at their food like a picky preschooler.

It's hard to know if you're feeding them the right amount when your dog won't tell you.

And dogs never, ever turn down something yummy.

Free Feeding

The practice of always having a full bowl of dog food out for your dog to eat when he sees fit, is really not recommended at all.

Dogs that free-feed tend more to obesity than dogs with scheduled feeding times since it is almost impossible to monitor how much your dog is actually eating each day.

If your dog has diabetes by any chance and you don’t know leaving food out could have serious consequences.

The Guidelines on the Dog Food Bag

Every dog food bag should come with a set of feeding guidelines specific to that dog food.

These guidelines are usually based on the weight of your dog (ie: one cup for every 50 pounds of dog, twice daily), and are a rough estimate of how much your dog needs to meet his nutritional needs.

Feeding Homemade Cooking (or not cooking for raw) for your dogs is one of the best ways to feed them, but certainly not easy.

And calculating exactly how much your dog should eat in one meal is even harder, since he won't have the willpower to walk away and leave some of it behind when he's full.

I believe, Raw4Dogs has a handy calculator to help you figure out how much your dog should be eating.

There is a fully comprehensive book I recommend called
