When starting to feed your dog special treats, or any other new food, there are a few things to remember. Introducing
your dog to new food needs to be done carefully. A radical change in their diet may cause an upset stomach or make
When switching from one type of dog food to another, remember to do it gradually as it may cause an upset stomach,
diarrhea, or another digestive problems. Another thing to monitor is the amount you feed your dog, which depends on
your dog itself. Look at your dog's age, level of activity, physical size, body metabolism, and physical health. Always
consult your veterinarian to determine feeding guidelines for your dog.
Remember that some foods are a danger for your dog, such as chocolate. Chocolate should not be given to your dog at
any time no matter how much he begs. Chocolate contains theobromine which stimulates the central nervous system,
and affects the heart muscle and kidneys. Chocolate also contains caffeine which is harmful to dogs.
Milk is a food that while some dogs may tolerate it, many don't very well. A few laps of milk may be okay, but don't serve it
with every meal. Some dogs do not produce lactase, the enzyme needed to break down the lactose (sugar) in milk. Milk
may cause your dog to suffer from diarrhea.
Onions and Garlic may be harmful to dogs. Both can destroy red blood cells and cause severe anemic reactions.
Onions may trigger diarrhea, vomiting, and fever.
Raw meat and raw fish are both threats to our furry friends. Raw meat carries bacteria and parasites. Salmonella, a
bacterial organism that is found in raw meat, can be harmful to animals and people. There are also certain species of
tapeworm that can be found in the raw meat. Raw fish, especially smelt, herring, catfish, and carp contain thiaminase.
Thiaminase is an enzyme that destroys the vitamin thiamine (B1). Cooking the fish will destroy this enzyme.
Dogs of all shapes and sizes require the six classes of nutrients to be healthy and happy. They are: Carbohydrates,
Fats, Protein, Vitamins, Minerals, and Water. Carbohydrates, fats, and protein provide the ingredients to build tissue and
produce energy. Vitamins, minerals, and water keep bones strong, keep tissues hydrated, maintain a healthy red blood
cell supply, and regulate body temperatures.
These recipes are for you and your dog to bond, so have fun, and remember to give treats sparingly.
