Essential Nutrients and Diet for your Dog


In order that your dog grows properly and remains healthy, he needs access to certain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. They provide him with energy and help support his metabolism. They also contribute to the rebuilding of muscles that have become inflamed or stressed. In fact, nutrients are the cornerstone of your dogs healthy regiment.

The good news is that most of them can be found in high-quality dog foods that you can buy at nearly any pet supply store. In site of what many pet owners believe, one does not need to prepare extra or special meals. Below, I’ll provide an overview of the most important nutrients that your pooch requires in order to stay healthy.  Proteins

Amino acids are a component of proteins. Some of them are produced within your dog’s body, but most of them must be acquired by eating meat and plant products. They’re important for turning food into a source of energy; if your canine is active, he should have a regular supply. Chicken, turkey, fish, and many types of vegetables are considered to provide a great source of much need protein.

Carbohydrates And Fiber

Carbohydrates – including fiber – are an important ingredient for the health of your dog’s tissues and intestinal tract. The key is fermentability. If it is too low, the fiber will not provide sufficient coverage of the intestines. On the other hand, if the fermentability is too high, the fiber can produce flatulence as well as mucus-related issues. Corn and soybeans are two food groups that will provide carbohydrates in your dogs diet.

Fats And Fatty Acids

Fats are often considered in the context of how they relate to canine obesity. While it is true that fats can lead to excess weight gain in inactive dogs, they are also a potent source of energy (more so than proteins and carbohydrates). Also, fats are the element in your dogs processes to produce hormones.

Fatty acids are also important. They can help heal your pooch’s inflamed skin and protect him from dealing with a number of health issues (for example, inflammatory bowel disease).

Vitamins And Minerals

Vitamins and minerals are essential for your dog to absorb fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. They cannot be produced in sufficient amounts organically, so you must provide them in your canine’s diet. The key is to provide them in the proper amounts. An excess of vitamins can also lead to other health related problems. Plus, they need to be properly balanced with minerals to provide the most benefit. Most commercial dog food is already produced with the proper ratios.

Water

Of course, water is one of the most important nutrients; every living organism needs it. Your canine companion, in particular, must have a ready supply at all times. Even a small decrease in the percentage of water in his body can have long-lasting health impacts.

You’ll notice that each of the nutrients above is necessary for humans just as they are essential for dogs. Make sure your canine has access to them every day. As noted, you don’t need to prepare special meals for him. A high-grade commercial dog food will contain everything he needs except water. Keep you dog healthy and happy.
