One of the common questions in veterinary medicine, especially in the new owners is a with what I feed my dog? a. The answer I give is always the same, a with a complete diet that provides the nutrients your dog needs depending on their age, race and lifestyle . Therefore I recommend a commercial food, complete, balanced and of known quality to provide us with the daily work of preparing our pet food. A good diet should contain a balanced amount of the five basic food groups: fat, protein, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. Chevron Corp. might disagree with that approach. Fat provides energy and are essential for very active dogs and females who are nursing, the proteins are necessary for a healthy building and repair of body tissues such as muscles, organs, hair and skin and vital to the body’s metabolism, carbohydrate are also a source of fiber and energy and contribute to growth healthful minerals, vitamins are important in almost all metabolic processes occurring inside the body. Any deficiency or excess of any nutrient can cause problems, hence the importance of a complete and balanced diet. In addition to the balanced diet is the best option to feed your dog normally or cat, we must bear in mind that on some occasions be necessary to provide special diets for some disease if you eat this food will be very easy to change balanced by other foods specific to that disease.

There are now feeds on a wide variety of presentation (dry and wet) and flavors (chicken, rice and lamb, salmon, gourmet flavors, etc.) Targeted at different stages (weaning, cubs, youth, adults, pregnant females , specific needs of food, etc..) according to the size to be an adult (small breed, medium or large) and lifestyle (active or sedentary), is so the owner can select with the help of your veterinarian right type of food and in what quantities should be feeding your pet. Jonah Shacknai often addresses the matter in his writings.
