How to feed a puppy correctly
The most important thing for a puppy is the first year of his life. During this period, formed its backbone and teeth, woolen cover. All of this depends on how he eats. Not quality not adequate nutrition can lead to rickets, mednarodnemu, and section the hair. What you will not be able to fully give it in the first year of life, in the future it will be impossible to fill.
For each feeding the puppy should be individualized.
Even being born in one litter, each puppy has their preferences in food. Obeying their own desires, they intuitively try to fill in the missing elements. Very often start to bite, it would seem, not edible things – cement, plaster, chalk – this usually happens when you lack calcium in your body. The amount of food consumed might depend on the weather conditions, nature and mobility of the puppy, its individual metabolism.
Puppies from six weeks to two months usually fed five or six times a day, with age, the number of feedings decreased, and a portion of the increase. With two months puppies are fed five times, four with four, with six or seven months, move on to three meals a day, starting with year, dog fed twice a day. As soon as the puppy ate, the Cup you need to immediately clean, fresh water should always be. If the puppy has not eaten the food completely, then the next time the amount should be reduced. If on the contrary, for a long time licking an empty Cup, the next time portion is increased. You should not put the food immediately.
Very useful for wool vegetable oil, so you need to add it to your food two times a week a tablespoon. The volume of a single feeding can be calculated approximately as follows: 200 grams – within two months of age, 300 gram in three month, 400 grams in four months and so on. An adult dog eats in one feeding 200 grams. 50 % of dog food should consist of animal protein, the rest comes from cereals and vegetables. From cereals use rice, buckwheat, oatmeal. Among vegetables beetroot, carrot, Bulgarian pepper, tomatoes. If you decide to feed your puppy dry food, choose a feed below “premium” class. The intake look on the manufacturer’s packaging.
The role of meat is extremely important in the diet of puppy. However, you need to know that feeding only meat can lead to protein poisoning, so the combination of it with cereals and vegetables is a must. Very useful to feed the meat raw, so it retains the necessary dog enzymes. The tripe so it is better to give raw not purified, it improves intestinal peristalsis.
Liver, kidney and other offal is better to give boiled, as they may be infected with helminths, and in small quantities, as it can trigger diarrhea. It is strictly forbidden to give the dog meat and fatty pork.
Every five to seven days is useful to replace meat in the diet of marine fish. It is rich in iodine, phosphorus and other vitamins. Freshwater fish are often infected with worms, so to give her only boiled and boned. It is not advisable to feed meat and fish in the form of meat, because it is poorly digested, it is better to cut them into pieces. Sometimes the puppy can be given bone (except tubular), but don’t do it too often, they are poorly digested and can cause intestinal obstruction. Also the frequent use of bones prematurely destroys the teeth.
Raw milk causes diarrhea, it is better to use dairy products. Once or twice a week is useful to give the puppy a raw egg. But if you are unsure of the quality, it is better to give cooked. Raw eggs are very useful and by bitches, and the dogs in the recovery period after illness. To years in the body of the puppy is an active construction of the skeleton, so it is very important dairy foods, it contains easily absorbed calcium and phosphorus. Therefore, in this period it needs on a daily basis to get the cheese.
Necessarily in the diet should be raw vegetables and fruits. They contain a lot of vitamins, cleanse the teeth and stimulate peristalsis.
It is extremely contraindicated for dogs with sweet and spicy foods!
Chicken can cause allergies, so giving it for the first time, be sure to watch the puppy.
