How will you feel if you are given the same food to eat every day? Now, imagine the plight of your puppy who can't even tell you that the food is tasteless. Not only will the food become boring but it will also lack the nutrition that your pet needs.
The ideal dog should contain 10% carbohydrates, 50% fresh vegetables, 40% protein, fat from meat or oil, and other ingredients such as calcium, and fatty acids. The serving size should depend on the weight, size, and age of your dog.
We understand that you can be a little sceptical while buying the packed food. However, even homemade dog food can be tasty and fulfil the nutritional requirements of your furry friend.
In this article, we are giving you some easy to make and nutritious homemade recipes for the dog.
