FEEDING YOUR
DOG

Every dog needs a complete and balanced daily diet, full of goodness and wholesome ingredients to keep them in tip top condition. Here you’ll find our top tips on feeding your dog - advice on their needs, choosing the right food, tips for mealtimes and giving your four-legged friend all the nutrients they need to live a happy and healthy life.

“YOUR DOG’S FOOD IS THE FUEL THAT KEEPS HIM ACTIVE AND DRIVES ALL HIS BODILY FUNCTIONS”

YOUR DOG'S NEEDS

A balanced diet will contain all the key nutrients in the correct proportions to allow your dog to be active and healthy. Your dog’s individual dietary needs will depend on their age, state of health and level of activity.

The seven nutrients vital for your dog’s life are: protein, fats, carbohydrates, fibre, vitamins, minerals and water. These are the building block for each and every cell in the body. They play an important role in maintenance as well as repair, helping to keep your dog physically and mentally healthy. Your dog’s food is the fuel that keeps him active and drives all his bodily functions.

FEED AT A REGULAR TIME EACH DAY

Digestion works better when there is a routine feeding time and your dog can eat without feeling stressed. Try and give your dog their meals in a quiet and calm environment.

Most dogs do better on two meals a day rather than just one because it’s easier for them to digest smaller meals.

A RELAXING ENVIRONMENT

Digestion works best when your dog is at rest. Feed them when they have time to rest and digest well, for a good hour or so, after eating.

If you have more than one dog, make sure that each one has the chance to eat at their own pace without competition from the others.

MAKING CHANGES TO THEIR DIET

Always make any dietary changes gradually. Sudden changes to the diet can cause tummy upsets. So, if you are either changing to a diferent recipe or changing to a new food, do so gradually over 4-5 days.

CHOOSE HEALTHY VARIETY

Unless your dog has digestive issues or is sensitive to certain ingredients, it’s a good idea to carefully introduce different recipes, so that they can enjoy a variety of ingredients in their diet - for both taste and nutrition.
