How to feed a puppy?
In order for your pet to grow up healthy, beautiful and happy, you need to carefully monitor its nutrition since childhood. In no case can not feed a puppy from your table. He needs to cook separately, it should be varied and healthy dishes. After all, it is in the first year of life that a dog forms bones, hair, teeth, as well as all the important functions of the body. With a lack of vitamins and minerals in the baby may remain underdeveloped paws, problems with the scent, dull and rare hair.
Also, remember that, for example, a Rottweiler puppy and a basset cannot be fed in the same way. For puppies of different breeds, different weights and degrees of activity there should be a completely different diet.
Up to 2 months to feed the baby should be at least 5-6 times a day, as a consequence, the frequency of feeding should be reduced. Up to 5 months – at least 4 times a day, up to 8 months – 3-4 (depending on the puppy’s activity), up to 12 months – 2-3 times a day.
At first, watch how your pet eats. When you see that he is full and has moved away from food, remove the bowl until the next feeding. Leave only a saucer with fresh clean water.
The most important thing in the dog menu at any age is meat (anyone other than pork). But not sausage and meat feed, but natural fresh meat. To save a little, in the meat department you can ask for meat trimming for dogs. They will be much cheaper than beautiful pieces of meat. Meat should be in the diet of a puppy every day. But! To feed a dog with one meat is harmful. The diet must include fish, vegetables, cereals, fruits and dairy products.
Once a week, divide the portion of meat into 2 parts, cook one as usual, and feed the second one raw to the pet.
2 times a week, feed the puppy with baked fish in the oven (you can only give raw fish to sea fish).
Do not rub the fish and meat for the baby on the grater, but cut it in small pieces.
1-2 times a week, give the puppy some milk and 1 raw egg.
From a very different age, feed your pet with raw and ground vegetables and fruits. The sooner you start giving them to him, the easier it becomes.
