What Is The Best Diet For Dogs?
Feeding your dog a balanced, natural diet is vital to their overall health and wellbeing. With approximately 50% of our dogs being classified as overweight or obese, it is also crucial to consider how much, as well as what, you feed your dogs for optimal health.
What is a complete and balanced diet?
If a dog food is labelled ‘complete and balanced’ it signifies that the food contains all the essential nutrients to meet dogs’ requirements. These nutrients are balanced in a way that ensures all nutrient requirements are met once the energy requirement (calories) is reached.
Dog food may be labelled as ‘complete and balanced’ for a certain life stage, e.g. ‘puppy’ or may be appropriate for ‘all life stages’.
