Feeding Your Dog

Feeding Your Dog

There is a general rule dog owners should follow as to whether or not your dog should consume foods that are made for humans. Not to worry, there already many guidelines available online and at your local pet store on how to care for your dogs. People who live in Singapore may often be swayed by adorable little canines especially with signs plastered all over the place such as “Puppy for sale Singapore”, “Adopt a dog Singapore”, or popular Singapore breeds such as the Pomeranian or Poodle Singapore. Chocolate is a popular food that is often warned to dog owners not to let their dogs ingest any particles of food containing chocolate as this ingredient is known to be toxic to them.

Canned dog food and kibbles are the traditional staple diet usually given to dogs on a daily basis as they often contain the necessary nutrition. Concerns surround the argument as to whether owners should feed their dog raw meat due to the evidence of bacteria such as salmonella or parasites that may be fatal to dogs. Bones are also a popular choice as a treat. It is important to remember when feeding meaty bones to dogs, they must be always served raw as cooked bones could create potential splinters that can cause internal cuts and obstruction. Other than that, seafood such as tinned tuna and sardines packed in spring water instead of those with oil may be given as an occasional treat. Cooked vegetables can also be fed to canines in a small amount such as carrots, pumpkins, and broccoli.

Even as it may seem harmless, it is good to have a handy go-to list to check what you should not give to your dogs. Popular examples are garlic, avocado, spoiled food, and so on. It is an extensive list to study. But, knowing some of the ingredients that you use on a day to day basis is enough as a minimum requirement to understand how to feed your dog.
