There are many different brands of dog food available to buy and they vary in cost greatly. As a rule of thumb, the more expensive premium food brands usually contain animal protein as the number one ingredient. Some of the cheaper, less expensive brands may use fillers and other cheaper ingredients to bulk out the food. Some people are initially put-off by the cost of the premium brands, but you will probably find that you need to feed less than you would with the equivalent budget food. This can be attributed to the fact that premium dog food is more 'nutrient rich'. Some brands of food offer different mixtures to cater for different life stages and breeds. The principle behind this being that certain breeds have specific nutritional requirements. Whatever dog food you choose, it is important to remember the following rules:
Fresh water should always be provided. Always make sure the bowl remains clean and doesn't get contaminated with food. Another good idea is to provide their food at around the same time every day. This helps to develop a routine for your pet and creates a comfortable eating programme. Whatever dog food you choose, it is important to follow the manufacturer's guideline. Overfeeding can cause obesity. It is also very important to remember to not give your dog human treats, as this can lead to sickness in certain situations and also obesity.
