Welcoming a puppy into the family is always a very important moment. There is nothing like the love and affection they will give for you forever. In these first moments, the most important thing to do is to determine the right food for your best friend. But everyone is asking the same question: “What is the best puppy food?”
Feeding your puppy with the best possible food is absolutely vital. Those twelve months of growth are equivalent to the years it takes a child to reach adulthood. That’s why it’s important to learn about the best dog foods and decide which brand you will choose. The first thing to do is to read the list of ingredients. There are nutrients that you have to make sure you have and others that you want to avoid.
Ingredients to have:
Vous devez vous assurer que la nourriture de votre chiot contient des produits d’origine animale, des huiles et des graisses naturelles, des céréales saines et des vitamines et minéraux essentiels. Ceci étant dit, le premier ingrédient de la liste devrait être un simple produit d’origine animale, comme le poulet, l’agneau et le saumon.
You need to make sure that your puppy food contains animal products, natural oils and fats, healthy cereals and essential vitamins and minerals. That being said, the first ingredient on the list should be a simple animal product, such as chicken, lamb and salmon.
Then, your puppy will need healthy grains to get good carbs and make sure that the food also contains essential vitamins and minerals such as fatty acids, vitamins A, C, E, phosphorus, Omega 3 and Omega 6.
Finally, your puppy needs fats and natural oils for his energy level and health in general. The fats and oils will help keep your dog fur shiny and will help your puppy develop strong muscles.
Ingredients to avoid:
When you look at the list of ingredients, you must make sure it has all the right nutrients but you also want to avoid the bad ones. Make sure to avoid all chemical preservatives, artificial colors, generic animal fats but especially animal by-products.
Did you know that by-products contain:
carcases and parts of animals slaughtered or, in the case of game, bodies or parts of animals killed, and which are fit for human consumption in accordance with Community legislation, but are not intended for human consumption for commercial reasons;
heads of poultry;
hides and skins, including trimmings and splitting thereof, horns and feet, including the phalanges and the carpus and metacarpus bones, tarsus and metatarsus bones, of animals, other than ruminants requiring TSE testing, and ruminants which have been tested with a negative result.
