Healthy Food for Dogs

Here is a list of ideal healthy dog food for your pooch

A lot of us are confused about what should be the right healthy food for your dog. It is very important to first research about what you’re planning to feed the dog. You are going to surprise yourself, how some forms of common food might be poisonous for your dog.

Some people believe that only processed and the market processed “dog food” is the only thing that should be fed. That is not such a bad idea, however natural food should be a part of your dog’s regular diet. There are health benefits and many other benefits with natural food.

This post will explain you the best and the healthiest food for your pooch!

Yogurt – Yogurt is full of protein, calcium and digestive cultures. This can help improve your doggy’s digestive system greatly.

Coconut – This might sound wierd, but Coconut contains “Lauric acid”, which produces “monoglyceride monolaurin“. This substance helps the dog destroy pathogenic bacteria and different forms of viruses.

Flax Seeds – Your doggy needs omega-3 acids just like you do. Flax seeds is an amazing source for omega-3 acids, which makes your dog fur shiny and healthy!

Eggs – Eggs are an amazing source of food to dogs. Eggs can be even given to them raw, and is rich in nutrients and vitamins.

Meat – Giving meat to your dog is perfectly fine. A great source of Proteins! Beef, chicken, pork, all is good but just make sure that the meat is lean meat – you don’t want your doggy to gobble up too much saturated fat!

Liver – Just like meat, liver can be a good and regular source of food for your dog. Liver is high in Vitamins and Minerals. You can find freeze-dried liver in the supermarket or the pet-store.

Oats – A good oatmeal is a nice source of fibre, proteins and carbs for your pooch.

Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes are rich in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Beta-carotene and manganese. They are a good source of carbs for your dog.

Tuna and Salmon – These fishes are right in omega-3 acids, and also have a very good amount of Proteins.

Cottage Cheeze – Cheeze is great food for dogs. But just keep in mind that Cheeze contains a fair amount of Lactose, and dogs can be lactose intolerant just like us humans.

Carrots – Carrots are high in fiber and vitamin A while being low in calories, so they make a great snack for your doggy. Chewing raw carrots is also beneficial for your dog’s teeth.

Finally the above mentioned points are written keeping a general dog in mind. If your dog does a lot of physical activities, or if your dog has some sort of a disease, the diet requirements might be different.

Therefore, if your dog has a special medical condition, it’s better to visit a vet for specific food that’s fit for your dog.

      Hey Jacob,
      How are you?
      The list above is ok for the general dog, and covering one post for all dogs was not possible 🙂 Ok then, since Togi is a Chihuahua, you’ve gotta remember that this tiny breed burns exceptionally HUGE amount of calories… Being 5 LB, he probably needs around 200-250 calories per day (much more than other toy breeds).
      Why Togi doesn’t like eggs might be just his style, just like we humans have our tastes. Eggs are actually very good for dogs. You should include about 25% proteins (above mentioned meat sources) and rest carbohydrates eg. brown rice, sweet potatoes, more mentioned above; and some fats too.
      Nice to know he likes carrots, no matter if cooked/uncooked 🙂
      Hope this helps, cheers!
