Dieting is a very important factor in the health and well-being of a dog. A perfect balanced nutrition prevents becoming overweight and all the risks associated with it. Most of veterinaries and pet owners work together to find the right diet. On the other hand, dog food manufactures invest lots of resources in R&D to offer a large spectrum of products adapted to the different life stages and conditions of a dog.
A homemade meal prepared from ingredients you trust, whether they are raw or cooked, is a very good and natural option, as long as it is supervised by your dog’s veterinary.
Cooking for pets is a trend that is gaining a growing number of adepts. Many times, pet owners are concerned about dog food containing non-natural ingredients and may opt to feed their four-legged friends organic ingredients or follow the suggestions of holistic veterinaries and dog nutritionists.
