Dogs love exercise, be it going for walks with their owner or even dog sport. But what's the score when exercise suddenly causes pain? Joint disorders are nowadays one of the most regular ailments suffered by dogs. Read here how to prevent joint disorders and what you can do with your dog's diet to counteract them.
Most people believe that dogs evolved from the wolf. In the wild their diet would have consisted almost completely of meat, with just a little fruit, herbs and botanicals. Evolution has not changed this, and the domesticated dog is still mostly carnivorous.
Now, feeding your dog a completely raw diet of freshly hunted prey isn’t exactly possible now and would likely make you a bit squeamish too, but we can somewhat replicate it with wet and dry food. Your dog’s diet should provide it with essential proteins, carbohydrates and fats as well as vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
High-quality dog food contains all these nutritional ingredients and protects your dog from becoming nutritional deficiencies and their associated health problems.
Catering to your dog’s specific nutritional needs is also important, so if they have food sensitivities or require a specialised diet for an ailment, then feeding them a diet designed for these health problems will help them lead happier lives!
We have a great range of wet and dry dog foods, including some extremely healthy and nutritious brands, and a wide selection of foods for dogs with special dietary requirements – finding the right food for your dog has never been easier!
