Which Dog Food Diet Should I Choose?


Food is the most important factor in your dog’s life. They need a diet that will meet all their requirements and needs. This can be from needing the energy to chase a ball to nutrients needed to support their overall health. Dogs don’t get to choose what they eat, we choose what we think is best for the health, wellbeing, and enjoyment of our canine companions. Unfortunately, there is no one answer to what food you should give your dog.

When choosing a dog food, you should consider the following factors for your dog: 
  • Health
  • Activity levels 
  • Age and weight 
  • Type of breed 
  • Food allergies 
  • Taste 
  • Your lifestyle
Common choices among dog owners are dried dog food diets and raw diets, but there is no answer to say which is right or wrong. Both raw and dried dog food diets have pros and cons, at the end of the day it all comes down to what is right for you and your dog.

If you are considering switching your dogs’ diet, make sure that you do it gradually. A dog’s digestive system needs time to fully adjust to a new food, otherwise they may get an upset stomach.

Raw Dog Food Diet

Raw is a diet of uncooked meat and a variety of other ingredients used to form the diet that often varies. A raw dog food diet needs added nutrients that your dog may require for day-to-day activities, so it is advisable to purchase complete raw food to ensure your dog is getting everything they need to stay happy and healthy.
