AS IT WAS MEANT TO BE!!!!
How should I feed my St. Bernard or English
Mastiff I purchase from you....?
Here at Puppy Pawz this is how we feed our dogs
and puppies... a VERY good nutritional diet for the health
of our dogs and ALSO the health and quality of the puppies
No dog~food is perfect or completely balanced.
But... there are brands of dogfoods MUCH better than
We are passionate about improving the health of
your pet through better nutrition. With BETTER ingredients
and better nutrition, you can help your pet maintain proper
body weight, reduce risk of allergies, and ENJOY a
LONGER, HEALTHIER life by maintaining a HEALTHY diet.
The key for your dog is to look impressive but not
overweight. Let your dog grow at a slow steady pace....
healthy.... and live a GOOD happy life! The better quality
of dogfood you use for your puppy the less it eats and the
more it uses that food. A dogfood with NO fillers in it...
ALL NATURAL with NO by~products such as corn, wheat,
or soy and gluten.
Just like you, your pet needs variety for proper,
balanced nutrition. Eating the same thing every day may
contribute to the development of food allergies or lack of
interest at feeding time. To offer more variety to your
pet, simply rotate between flavors (like chicken, lamb,
rabbit) and/or forms (raw, kibble, cans). There is no right
or wrong way to rotate..... variety is the key!!
When our females are pregnant we mix raw meat
with their dogfood and keep it in front of them all the
time. It is also topped with raw eggs
every day and rotated between vanilla yogurt
and cottage cheese.
Every day the female is given
for her health and the for the health of the puppies being developed.
I also use Instinct raw meat at times, chicken or beef,
which is a complete and balanced diet.... 95% meat, 5%
vegetables, 0% grain.
When we have puppies they are also fed the same
way. I mix raw meat with their kibble two times a day with
eggs on top. They absolutely love it!! They are also
healthier. I also feed my puppies canned meat... at least
when they are just learning to eat as the food is soft for
them. Taste of the Wild and Purina Pro Plan have been 2
brands I have been really happy with!!
Since dogfoods are not totally perfect rotate your
dogs food between kibble and a raw food diet every couple
Listed are some good brands of dogfoods
to use. For example good dogfood companies have
1 pet food "type" for ALL Life Stages. Most
dogfood manufacturers have done a great job
marketing various categories of pet foods to best
suit themselves or to increase sales. You may
check online for a dealer near you or order them
~Here is number 1 brand of dog~food on the market!!!!
~Taste of The Wild~
Precise Holistic Complete
Precise and Precise Plus
Blue Buffalo Adult Chicken and Rice
REMEMBER.... that when the ingredients
show fresh chicken than meat meals of any kind
second that the dry meals always make up the
larger portion of the pet food.
The pet digests food on a "dry matter basis" and
since the fresh meat or poultry or fish has considerable
moisture in it and everything is dried to 10%~12% moisture
for packaging that the ingredients that start out dry like
the chicken meal, turkey meal, and fish meals will
ultimately become the highest percentage of ingredients
based on "dry matter" content of the food.
While the initial pounds of fresh chicken and salmon
will be higher than the chicken, turkey, and herring meal
the pet actually digests dry matter and therefore the
label, when calculated on a dry matter basis, may well
read; chicken meal, turkey meal, herring meal, than fresh
chicken and salmon ect.
Just an example of how we can get mislead by
labeling. It would be interesting to see the labels on pet
foods listed on a dry matter basis.
