How NOT to Feed Your Dog

Unfortunately, there are people out there that think it's OK to just put any kind of
food into their dog's bowl.

Don't be one of those people!

Full grown dogs are like adult humans and puppies are like babies, they each have
special needs can't just eat any kind of food.

Here are some things that, as a dog owner, you should NOT do.

First of all - the fact that something is tasty for you doesn't mean that it is also tasty for your dog. There is a good chance that it, in fact, will be harmful for your dog, so before giving anything out of the ordinary to you your pet, check with a vet.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your dog's daily food portion depends on its physical activity. Dogs which run more and as a whole tend to be active should receive somewhat larger daily portions than less active dogs. Dogs which prefer to lie down and watch TV all (which should be discouraged) should receive a reduced food portion, otherwise they may become obese. And obesity is very dangerous for dogs.

Don't forget about vitamin and mineral supplements. They are important for dogs, and especially crucial for small puppies. Nowadays most quality dog foods are infused with all of the vitamin and minerals needed by your dog. But high quality dog food can be expensive, and if you can't afford it and must rely on lower quality products, it is recommended that you consult with a vet or other dog specialist regarding the amount of supplements and vitamins your dog should be getting on a daily basis.

As mentioned before, there are many things that you should not feed to your dog - when in doubt please check with a qualified veterinary professional.
