Doggie Nutrition 101

Doggie Nutrition Crash Course

One of the fundamental keys to having a healthy dog is what - and how much - they eat. I’ll bet you’re familiar with the term “You are what you eat”... well the same thing applies to your dog.

Nutrients Your Dog Needs

Nutrients are substances obtained from food and used by an animal as a source of energy and as part of the metabolic machinery necessary for maintenance and growth. There are the six essential classes of nutrients dogs need for optimum healthy living: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water.

Vitamins and Minerals

These are needed for many of the chemical reactions in your dog's body, such as building bones and keeping them strong. Most dog food can take care of most of these nutrition needs. However, just like us humans, our meals can't possibly fulfill the daily quota of vitamins every single time we sit down to eat. 

TIP: Take a preventative approach and supplement your dog’s diet with our 10 in 1 vitamin supplement. Simply giving the suggested serving size for your dog’s weight each day will fulfill this need for vitamins and minerals. The ingredients in our supplements are all natural and are proven to help prevent illness and keep health issues at bay as your dog ages. 

Fruits and Vegetables

The process of making dog food means that fruits and vegetables are ground, smashed, baked, and thoroughly broken down to bits.

TIP: Our 10 in 1 Multivitamin has sweet potatoes, and pumpkin. Both off which are very nutritious and beneficial to your dog!

Some of the best fruits and veggies to give your dog include sweet potatoes, pumpkin, broccoli, and blueberries make sure to monitor how your dog reacts to any vegetables you give them.
