Whether you feed your dog a super premium quality commercial food or prepare homemade meals, it is important to understand the fundamentals of canine nutrition.
Nutrients are normally divided into six major groups: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and water. Meat is the most common source of protein but some manufacturers use also vegetable protein to increase the protein level of the food. You should keep in mind that the digestibility for dogs in vegetable proteins is far less than in protein from animal origin.
There are many carbohydrates used in the pet food industry. Some of the ingredients, such as wheat and soya, can often cause allergies in sensitive dogs. Instead, we use easily digestible potato, maize and dried apples in order to help to maintain dog's healthy digestion. Fat sources in dog food are normally animal based. In our recipes fat comes from chicken and salmon. Main ingredients of the food already contains certain amount of vitamins and minerals but in many cases there is a need to add them in later stage of production.
