We feed our dogs the best dry food we can find! Buddy also gets served an occasional bowl of dry food, but it's accompanied with fresh veggies and meat to balance out his dietary requirements. It's essential we add natural Fibre and protein to their bowl!
We cannot put a dog solely on dry food and expect it to get all the nutrients from it.
It's like you eating out everyday and expecting to stay healthy!
Yes, dry food is convenient and less time consuming. Not all of us have the time to cook fresh food.. We get it!
But let's take a logical approach to it.. 1.
What is it made of?
Have you ever wondered what goes into making that kibble? Like we wonder what makes the Mcburger so yummy!
It's a cocktail of things pulverized, processed by high temperatures, so even if there was any essential oils etc it's killed by the heat.
If you cook foods above a certain temperature it looses nutrient value.. So what are we feeding our pooch?
Dry food with added essential fatty acids!!! Oh that's good..!? Well again, keeping it open too long would result in the fatty acids going rancid and that's the worst for our dogs!
Add fresh veggies and meat to their bowl for the essential and natural source of goodness.
How long do you store it? Time, moisture, heat and air are harmful to the dry food we use. Yes dry food can go bad!
Storage of 5kg and bigger bags!
Don't buy large bags please!!! No matter what brand the dry food is.. Bacterial and fungal growth is inevitable! Store it in an airtight container and put it in the freezer. Away from light, heat and air.
Dry food should be a part of your dogs diet but not everyday!
