Pay for a quality holistic dog food with limited fillers. That is the simplest answer, but there are many things we should look at when selecting a food for our beloved dog.
There are three main types of dog food that can be purchases. Dry dog food (Kibble) can be purchased in small, medium and large amounts. Kibble is high in carbohydrates, with oil sprayed on to help keep it moist. This oil adds protein to the dry food. The dry food can be made up of several ingredients, but the main portion is some type of vegetable meal.
The beauty about this holistic Pet food extruder processing line is it can be fed to puppies that are ready for some real food. It will depend on the breed and age of the puppy. The recommendation is to feed about twice the amount to the puppies than the adult dog. The dog should eat between three to four cans a day based on their body weight. So, every fifteen pounds, a dog should have one can for breakfast and one for dinner. The dog or puppy should of course have plenty of water to drink when eating.
Semi-moist foods are the most comparable to human junk Pet food extruder. They are full of sugar and preservatives. The days of just being able to choose between puppy food and adult food are long gone.
