We are constantly hearing what foods are best for our families, but have you ever wondered what the best options are for our little canine friends?
Here we discuss the best foods for your dog’s health as well as the foods you should completely avoid at all times. I personally make my dog’s food every week, sandwich bag it up and place in the freezer, I do this so I know exactly what my dog is eating, I know it is healthy and top quality, with fresh vegetables and meat.
My dog is 9 years old and you would never pick it, he is completely healthy, happy and full of beans! Please note that it is important for dogs to also eat dry food, as it is good for their teeth, not looking after their teeth properly can result in harmful infections that make dogs extremely ill. Getting dry food from the vet is the best option, as it doesn’t crumble, it is harder to break down, making it better for their teeth.
Best foods for dogs:
- Cooked Chicken
- Carrots, a great way to get your dog to eat is to grate the carrot and add to a cooked minced meat mix
- Cheese (as long as your dog is not lactose intolerant (a very small percentage of dogs are)
- Green beans
- Salmon (Cooked and no bones)
Foods to never feed your dog:
- Onion powder
- Fatty trimmings
- Cooked Bones
- Sausages as they contain sulphite preservatives
A mix I use often is placing in a fry pan: meat, some eggs, grated carrot, beans, broccoli and peas. He really loves this mix!
