MIXING IT UP – THE BENEFITS OF A COMBINATION DIET FOR YOUR PET

By admin-1   |   January 22, 2020   |   Categories: Nutrition   |  

Happy New Year! Perhaps like me, you were exposed to an array of food choices throughout the holiday season.  Having a selection of options (healthy ones, especially) keeps our meals enjoyable and diverse.  This opportunity to experience different kinds of food, not only in taste but in texture, can be beneficial for your dog as well.

A pet food trend that has been steadily gaining ground is feeding your dog a raw or home-cooked diet.  Although this gives pet parents complete control of what is going into their dog’s meals, it can also neglect to provide some of the ingredients necessary for your pet’s needs based on their physiological makeup.  What may be a better option is to have your pet on a combination feeding regime.

As an Animal Nutritionist, it has been my life’s work to understand the distinct biological nutritional needs for animals to live long and healthy lives.  I make it my mission to formulate pet foods that contain ingredients promoting overall bodily holistic health.

As you know, I am a proponent of rotating your dog’s diet (see my article, November 2019). The addition of both kibble and canned food to your pet’s meals can not only provide essential nutrients, but will add texture, hydration, and variety at mealtime. I formulated D.O.G.’s diets to be rotational, highly digestible, exceptionally palatable, and functionally balanced to confirm your pet is getting the vital nutrients it needs.

It is imperative when transitioning foods that it is done gradually, between 5 to 10 days.  Also, to help with the transition or if your pet is experiencing digestive issues, try D.O.G.’s pumpkin with electrolytes, which promotes a healthy gut and normal stool formation.

So if you home-cook, feed raw, or feed only kibble, why not add a little diversity into your pet’s diet and give D.O.G. pet foods a try?  It may be a breakthrough for your finicky eater and a refreshing change for the one who will eat anything!
