Although dogs enjoy meat, it is not a balanced diet. Raw meats may contain parasites, and cooked meat can be high in fat and do not contain a proper balance of nutrients. Some raw fish can cause a deficiency of the vitamin thiamine. Symptoms of a thiamine deficiency include anorexia (complete loss of appetite), abnormal posture, weakness, seizures, and even death. Raw salmon will also transit deadly parasites. Raw liver, fed daily in large quantities, can cause a vitamin A toxicity in dogs. This is particularly true if it is fed along with a complete and balanced diet already containing ample vitamin A.
Having a dog is not all about fun and play. Proper nutrition is a key element in the health and long life of your dog. A healthy dog is a happy dog. To maintain a healthy, balanced diet for your dog, you will need good dog food, common sense and a veterinarian. Dogs require six types of nutrients: water, protein, fat, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. Those commercial pet foods billed as 100 percent complete and balanced provide all of a dog's requirements, except water. But all is not what it seems with commercial dog food. Don't short change your dog's health. Provide him with clean, fresh drinking water at all times. Water is the key to a dog's ability to regulate body temperature.
Although there are some great commercial foods for dogs on the market, many people think that homemade dog food is the best for their pets. If you want to be certain that only quality ingredients get into your pet's food, this is about the only way you can guarantee what is in his food, as you pick it out and make it fresh yourself. Caring for your dog isn't a great challenge. Taking care of essential needs such as clean water and high quality food is not that hard to do. Despite what you may hear, not all dog food is created equally.
