Today I will try to answer one of the most common questions among dog breeders: "How to feed a dog correctly?" Let's talk about which Chewy food to choose industrial production or natural, homemade.If you are planning to feed your pet dry Chewy food, then you may have to use a lot of trial and error to find what exactly your dog needs, which will not cause her allergic reactions. But I want to warn you right away I do not recommend mixing dry Chewy pet food with natural.The fact is that the body does not make much effort to process Chewy dry food, and the activity of the pancreas gradually decreases. But with natural nutrition, a sufficient amount of concentrated gastric juice is required to process products.Therefore, alternate feeding with dry and natural food is a huge stress for the body. Possible gastritis and problems with the gastrointestinal tract. You can only occasionally let the dog feast on carrots, apples, cottage cheese, or a small piece of meat. But this is rare. Feeding with dry food is certainly very convenient for the owner of the dog, because there is no need to waste time preparing food.

What types of dry Chewy dog food have we just tried? 

Dogs and cats don’t do their homework, they don’t need to buy clothes, read books at night, and go to the movies. But they, like children, need our attention and careful care. If you initially feed your pets correctly, in the future this will save them from diseases of the stomach, liver and kidneys, and you from spending on their treatment. Recently, I discovered a very interesting site on the Internet, which I recommend you to look at as well. Unlike most resources, the portal has not only a feed rating, but also a reasoned analysis of any brand of feed (down to the last ingredient).When we got the dog, to simplify our life, we also tried to feed Jack with dry balls. But it was not there. Jack ate it hard and felt guilty all the time.But they all caused him terrible allergies. After a while, the hair on the neck began to fall out in tufts. How many tests we passed, how many medications we tried (our poor little mask), until we got to see a very good doctor who firmly said: Enough tormenting the dog and feeding him dry Chewy dog food for small and large dogs go to this page. Then we were seriously puzzled by the issues of proper feeding of our dog. And most importantly, we did not know what to feed him and what kind of "natural" she is? Of course, I didn't want to constantly bother with cooking, but there was no other choice.

Amount of Chewy food

Today, after 5 years have passed, I can say that cooking for Jack does not give a lot of trouble, especially since we are small-bred. Every 3-4 days we cook a whole pan of tasty, appetizing and satisfying porridge, which is then stored in the refrigerator. Just put in a portion in the morning and in the evening, heat it up and voila the dog is full and happy! By the way, check out the recipe for this porridge (and not only). I would like to add that we now store Jack's ready-made porridge ingredients in the refrigerator separately. This allows them to stay fresh for longer.I must say that as soon as we switched to "natural", the allergy "vanished as if by hand"!It is believed that an adult dog needs about 50 kcal per day per 1 kg of body weight. But the amount of Chewy food consumed can be influenced by many factors.

What affects the serving size for large dog?

We list the circumstances that must be taken into account:

  • Season (in winter the dog eats more).

  • Exercise and exercise (exercise requires more protein).

  • Age.

  • Physiological structure.

If you are leaning towards natural feeding, then you just need to learn what Chewy foods you can give your large dog. I want to note right away that the dog's diet requires individual selection. Many foods can cause an allergic reaction in some dogs and other dogs will gobble them up without any consequences. But there is one unspoken rule - when choosing foods for feeding your dog, try to pay attention to green foods. This applies to vegetables, fruits and berries. Red foods often cause allergies.

Let's take a closer look at the diet. From personal experience, we were convinced that feeding with these products went to our Jack's benefit.

An adult large dog should be getting about 50-60% of its daily meat intake. During the period of growth and development, a puppy needs about 20-30 grams of meat per kilogram of weight per day. But an adult dog is much less - 15-25 grams per kilogram of weight.
