 • Nutrition is the single most important contribution to your pet's
                                 health.

 • The size and breed of the dog dictates the amount of food they
    intake and that can be expensive. While most people turn to dry
  food as a sole source of nutrition, healthy leftovers can be added to
                                 the diet.

• These nutrients can usually be found in one of three types of food
  available for dogs, dry, semi-moist and canned. The main difference
                  between them is the water content.

      • However adding human foods to the dog's diet is not
               recommended by all veterinarians.

• Realistically families with small children will inevitably feed
  the dog human food.
• A good rule of thumb is 1 teaspoon for large breed dog and
  1/8 of the teaspoon for small dog.
• Any time they get something not nutritionally balanced they
  are less likely to eat their regular food, resulting in throwing
  off the balance of nutrition.
• Another side effect is this can upset their stomach which can
  result in side effects such as vomiting and diarrhea.

• How much do I feed my pet?
• The consumption recommendations on most
  commercial foods are designed for a pretty active and
  reproductive dog. In addition, most dogs today are
  spaded and neutered, meaning food should be less
  than the recommended amounts. It's a good idea at to
  visit your vet and have them do a body conditioning
  score as a guide to finding the proper food amounts. As
  animals age their food needs change, usually because
  their energy requirement is lower than that of a
  younger adults gods.

• Sometimes the stomach also doesn't process
  as well in older animals. Continuing at the
  same food amounts may result in obesity.

  the day along with treats, will help you keep
  your animals diet plan intact.

• As for treats, if you going to give them, opt for
  healthy options such as air popped popcorn,
  green beans, carrots and apples. If you go to
  give them a biscuit, break it into pieces and
  make them think they are getting a lot more
  than they are. The size of the treat is not
  important, they'll still feel happy.

• Dogs need a well-balanced diet with the
  proper amounts of nutrients and vitamins to
  keep them healthy. A good solid protein is
  vital to the dogs nutritional plan, as well as
  healthy fats such as fish oil, flax oil and
  sunflower oil. A good mixture of insoluble and
  soluble fibers will also help regulate glucose in
  the body. And finally, a good complex,
  carbohydrates diet is also needed for any dog.
