Making your own homemade dog diet is an excellent way of keeping your dog happy. A lot of the commercial foods have artificial coloring and artificial flavoring agents that can harm the health of your dog. When you make your own dog food you are guaranteed to know what’s in it and you can do better than the commercial foods out on the market.
The preservatives that are added to commercial dog foods might not be the best thing for your dog in regard to health. Even with renal diseases found in dogs their homemade diets consist of things like sliced bread, boiled eggs, calcium carbonate, ground beef, etc.
The reason for these kinds of ingredients is to maintain the protein supply within the food. This holds true with your homemade dog food as well (if they’re suffering from renal diseases). That means adding water in sufficient enough quantities that it assists their metabolism during the digestion process.
You dog may be suffering from some type of allergic symptoms such as itching all the time. Sometimes medications do a poor job of eliminating these symptoms but a change in diet can totally take them away. When a homemade dog food is made properly with the allergy in mind, you can save your dog from the torment of the food allergy. You can also change the store-bought foods you get and make sure your dog doesn’t get the ingredient causing the allergic reactions.
Usually a homemade dog food is prepared by freezing the foods first to kill all the germs. You can also add grape seed extract to deliver enough antioxidants to make your homemade food healthy. You can add food-grade vinegar to the pieces of meat and enrich the food with vitamin supplements and fish oil, etc.
If you want to give your dog an energy boost try adding some bananas, fish, meat, and cranberry juice to the homemade dog food. This should cause your dog to become more active and get the exercise needed to maintain good health.
