Finding the best dog food for my puppy, what a task!
Trying to find something that suits your dog is a difficult task and it requires a great amount of attention from you but at the end of the day it’s all worth the effort. You’re Puppy-baby A dog is in every way a baby and when that little dog comes home with you, you become responsible for its life.
All its needs, its health, happiness and everything in between, puppies are just like newborn babies, they can’t eat what older dogs can and it is our duty as their adoptive parents to commit to them.
Being a new parent is hard work, figuring out what’s good for your dog is even harder, but you have to do it.
You need to be aware of everything about you puppy. Most importantly the food by making sure that you’re buying the correct food and that it doesn’t have a negative effect on your dog and so on. Finding the best dog food for your puppy isn’t an easy feat either.
As there are a ton of brands to choose from, you need to be careful though, because dog food has two types. One for large breed puppies and the other for smaller breed puppies it is imperative that you know what you’re feeding your puppy because not knowing could actually place your dog’s life in danger.
Dog food can be confusing
with their different types and sometimes you’re unsure yourself which one is better to buy for your puppy. So even now I am a bit hesitant to buy certain types of dog food for my puppy’s.
The whole big dog, small dog food difference can give you quite a headache. Some types of dog foods can be catered to either bred dogs and in turn relieving a great amount of pressure from your shoulders. Trust me here been there, wondering to myself if I selected the right option and whether or not it would affect my dog, etc.
Some great dry dog food to try on your dog include,
- Orijen Dog Food
- Annamaet Ultra
- Nulo Freestyle Dog Food
- Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural Dog Food
- Merrick Grain-Free Dog Food
The above five dog foods are my favorites. The fact that they use abundant sources of animal protein and in the cases of Nulo, Annamaet is plant based which is an added bonus if you ask me. But dry food isn’t always a great option if your dog has an aversion to drinking water.
Canned foods are you next go to as it contains a source of water, not much but mind you but it’s better than nothing. Two great canned foods to buy are Wellness Core Canned Dog Food and Canidae Grain Free Pure Canned Dog Food. Dog food is a tricky thing and finding the right dog food for your puppy is a process. As much as you’d probably prefer a specific brand for your dog because the nutritional value is high, it is entirely up to your puppy on whether they like it or not.
