It’s that time of year where lots of people suffer with coughs and colds. We are advised to include ‘5 a day’ in our diet and take power supplements such as echinacea and vitamin C to help keep our immune system working at it’s optimum, in order to fight off viruses. But what about your dog? How do you keep them in the best of health, not just over the winter season, but throughout the year?
As with ourselves, it starts with what we eat. There is a lot of information out there about which food type is best for your dog. Some advocate a raw food (BARF) diet whilst others endorse a dried food meal plan. Whatever your choice, it is important to investigate the nutritional content in the food you have decided to feed to determine whether you need to be supplementing it with additional ingredients to complete a balanced, nutritious, healthy diet.
Omega 3 essential fatty acids are a vital part of any animals diet - human or canine - and as this cannot be manufactured by the body it does need to be supplemented in our diet. Omega 3 helps to maintain a healthy cellular, cardiovascular, brain, heart and endocrine system. Most manufactured pet foods do not contain adequate enough omega 3.
If you decide that you need to use a supplement, it can be confusing deciding which type to buy as there are so many to choose from. It may be that there are multiple areas that you are looking to support such as brain, heart, joints and immunity, which can be expensive, especially if you have more than one dog.
It’s not surprising that so many people don’t know where to begin!
