Taking care of your dog’s health

Taking care of your dog’s health is a full-time job, one that requires a large amount of responsibility. However, did you know that choosing your dog’s food is one of the most important decisions you make for your dog’s health
There are many different types of dog food on the market, some of which may actually damage your dog’s health
Here is some information that will help you to be better informed about how to choose the best possible food formula for your dog
The type of food you purchase can depend on factors such as your dog’s breed, age, activity level and overall health
When choosing a dog food formula, it’s important to keep these factors in mind. 
For example, if your dog is under 1 year of age, you will want to choose a puppy formula. If your dog is over seven years of age, you are best off choosing a dog food formula for senior dogs. 
If your dog has urinary tract problems, you may want to purchase a formula that is designed to help your dog’s condition
In addition to this, if your dog is overweight, you may want to purchase a high-fiber, low-fat dog food formula
 This is because an overweight dog is prone to many different health problems, especially if they are currently on a high-fat diet. Many dog food companies have designed special formulas for dogs that are suffering from obesity.
When choosing a dog food, it’s essential that you pay close attention to the ingredients. As a general rule, the first five ingredients in your dog’s food formula make up the bulk of the food. Because of this, it’s important that these ingredients are highly nutritious, and do not contain any harmful substances. It’s best to avoid dog food formulas which contain corn in their first five ingredients, since many dogs can develop health problems on a corn-based diet. In addition to this, it’s best to avoid dog food formulas that contain artificial colors, artificial flavors or chemical preservatives
As another option, you may want to consider feeding your dog a grain-free formula. A grain-free dog food formula more closely mimics the diet of dogs in the wild, and can have positive effects on your dog’s health
 Though grain-free dog food formulas may sometimes be a bit more expensive, they can go a long way towards keeping your dog happy, healthy and disease-free
