You may be a mum to a happy, healthy bunch of children, but they aren’t the only ones in need of some love and attention. You’ve got it, your pets, whether that may be a dog, a cat, or something a little more exotic like a crocodile in your pool. You need to be their mom too.
Think about how you can help your dog lead a healthier life by feeding your dog high protein dog food. Alternatively, make your own.
Family And Pet Diets
You love your pet, but you do not like what you have to give them to eat.
How can you be sure what is in dried food and tinned pet foods?
Most people would answer that you do not know.
So, why do we feed our pets these products?
It may be time to start looking at other ways to feed our pets that align more to our diets and less to what the everyday normality currently has been.
Safe Foods For Your Dog or Cat
There are at least twenty foods that you can safely feed your dog or cat; we can share too; these include the following:
- Green Beans
- Peanut Butter
- Cottage Cheese
- Cheeses – Gouda, Cheddar, and Swiss Cheese
Do Not Feed These Foods To Family Pets
On the downside, there is the food you should not be feeding to your furry friends. These foods are as follows:
- Soft Drinks
- Chewing Gum
- Macadamia Nuts
- Grapes and Raisins
- Yeast dough
- High sodium foods, like bacon.
So, yes, you can start sharing a similar diet with your dog or Cat and start making a successful transition from commercial pet foods to making healthy foods straight from your fridge or pantry. However, you should check with your vet to make sure this is a suitable approach for your pet’s well-being.
The Four Steps To Pet-Friendly Nutrition
- Proceed Gradually with Loving Care
Dogs and cat’s digestive systems cannot cope very well with sudden changes to their diets. Therefore, it is even more important when considering making a significant move away from feeding your pets dried or tinned pet foods to a human-style diet but do this gradually.
- Make Food Fun
Try not to stick to the same food every day, diversify, add some colour and some fun to the pet’s diet.
- Reduce Fat
When preparing your pets homemade food, try to remember not to make the food you make too rich in fat content. A little is fine, but too much can lead to damaging your pet’s health.
- Stop The Left-Overs
Stop all that nonsense of giving the dog or cat those bits off gristle and grot off your plate. If you don’t want it, they don’t want it either.
So, make sure that you make your pets an equal part of your life, sharing moments and making them a treasured member of your family.
