Facts about Dog foods

Do you really know what the kibble you are giving? How to differentiate good from bad products on the market? First of all we should know the different types of food (Croquettes, Canned, Dehydrated / lyophilized / air dried, Prepared flood, Homemade float)

Furthermore, the age of your dog will determine which formula each manufacturer will need to compare. Whether you choose “puppy / adult / senior” food or “any stage of life”, the important thing is in the list of ingredients,

When to feed?

For the dog (as for the human), eating brings nutrients in the blood that cause them to vary, among other things, the sugar level. Eating more frequently will help prevent hypoglycaemia which is actually a lowering of the sugar level.

To avoid a hypoglycemia crisis (which mostly happens to puppies), make sure to feed your dog at least twice a day: morning and evening. Even better: leave it always its food, in this way, he will eat to his hunger, here and there during the day. This will be the best way to avoid hypoglycemia since by eating a croquette here and there in the day, its sugar level will vary very little.

Food allergies or intolerance:

An allergy food occurs when the immune system mistakenly takes an ingredient of a food as being harmful to its body. The body then sets itself in defense mode and creates antibodies to combat the (false) threat.

Symptoms of an allergy? The dog scratches, bites its paws, licks excessively, has nausea and vomiting.

An intolerance occurs when the digestive system has trouble digesting food. It is therefore a digestive disorder instead of an immune system response (as in the case of an allergy).

Symptoms of intolerance? Digestive distress: flatulence, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Do you think you can give your companion a healthy treat by giving him fresh or dried grapes? NO!!Danger! grapes bad for dogs.

Depending on your symptoms, you may induce vomiting in order to decrease absorption by the digestive system. 3% hydrogen peroxide (1 ml to 3 ml per kg of dog weight), administered orally, is a quick way to induce vomiting in dogs. Depending on the condition of the animal and the amount of grapes ingested, hospitalization may be necessary.
