Keeping your furry best friend healthy and happy starts with the right nutrition. So, why not feed them the finest natural ingredients to keep them wagging their tails and chasing after that pesky squirrel? Our pals at Burns Pet Nutrition have shared their expert advice on selecting the best ingredients for your dog’s diet, making sure they get all the goodness they need. Let’s dive into the delicious world of doggy dining, shall we?
A Bit of This, a Bit of That: The Perfect Balance
Much like us humans, our canine companions need a well-rounded diet packed with whole-food, natural ingredients. This helps them maintain an active lifestyle, sleep soundly, and ward off potential health problems like heart disease.
Top Ingredients for a Healthy Hound
To ensure your dog isn’t missing out on vital nutrients, we’ve put together a list of key ingredients to look out for in their food.
1. Marvellous Meats
It’s no surprise that meat plays a starring role in your dog’s diet, providing vital protein to maintain a healthy weight and support strong muscles. There are two categories of meaty goodness your dog needs:
- Organ meats: Think kidneys, hearts, and liver – oh my!
- Lean proteins: Chicken, beef, and other lean cuts keep your pup’s protein intake balanced.
A diet rich in both types helps your dog stay fit and fabulous.
2. Glorious Grains
Carbohydrates are key for a balanced doggy diet, and whole grains provide the perfect source. Ingredients like barley and rice offer high-fibre carbs that give your pooch the energy they need to frolic and stay in tip-top shape. Burns’ natural dog food includes wholesome brown rice to aid digestion and boost metabolism.
3. Vibrant Veggies
Veggies bring an array of vitamins and minerals to your dog’s diet, but not all are suitable for canine consumption. While carrots, green peas, and broccoli get the green light, onions, leeks, tomatoes, and mushrooms are no-go’s. Burns’ natural dog food offers a scrumptious blend of nutritious veggies and meat, ensuring your furry friend gets all their essential vitamins and minerals.
And remember, a piece of broccoli or carrot makes a lovely, healthy treat to reward your dog with!
4. Vital Vitamins
Your dog needs a good dose of essential vitamins for that extra pep in their step. Beef, lamb, broccoli, and peas are vitamin powerhouses, making them popular choices in natural dog foods. Burns’ natural dog food is both ‘natural and complete,’ providing all the necessary vitamins your dog needs without any additional supplements (unless advised by your vet).
