Each product has its own useful qualities, because it contained nutrients. But there is no such a product that would contain all!
Therefore, if you choose organic foods to feed your Jack, observe the principle of rotation: the products should be varied. This diversity allows the dog has all necessary nutrients that we talked about earlier.
If you chose a new product to feed Jack, Jack wouldn’t eat it for the first time, but it doesn’t mean he did not need it, just because it was unusual. Introduce new products gradually, in small portions.
Thus, in your diet must contain the following products.
Meat. This can be beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, beef offal, such as heart, liver, giblets. Raw meat has a higher energy value and easier to digest than cooked. However, in raw meat may contain helminth eggs, so it is better to frost.
Pork should not be given, because it is too fatty food for Jack and can cause diarrhea.
Fish. Give only marine fish without bones. The nutritional value of fish is smaller than the meat, so the portion of fish should be about twice as much.
Dairy products. Low-fat cottage cheese, yogurt, buttermilk, cheese, are rich sources of protein and digestible fats, vitamins and minerals. However, the amount of dairy product in the diet should not limit due to high protein content.
Milk in its purest form contains lactose and can cause indigestion, so it is better not to give it to Jack.
Eggs are also a good source of protein. Give the boiled eggs.
Cereals. Oatmeal, millet, rice, buckwheat, corn grits, semolina are excellent sources of carbohydrates. Cereals should boil thoroughly on the water.
Any kinds of vegetables, such as carrots, celery, squash, cucumbers, apples, herbs, etc., should be given raw, grated or finely chopped. You can boil the vegetables before consumption, but they lose vitamins with heat treatment. Do not let your Jack potatoes, onions, garlic, turnip.
Combine foods in different variations composing a menu for your pet.
Standard combination is meat and cereals, vegetables.
Meat and fish should be given cut into pieces, but not in the form of minced meat. The fact is that in the dog's stomach minced meat does not have time to digest and semidigested goes out in the intestine where it starts putrefaction, which results in a disorder of the digestive system.
You can cook the food immediately before feeding or to prepare the mixture in advance and freeze it, portioned. This is very convenient, just get one bag and unfreeze by the time of the meal.
For 5 kg Jack daily portion of food should be 250-300 g Moreover, the amount of meat should be 10g at 1 kg of weight of the dog, ie meat is only 20% of the daily diet.
But if you find some free time for your pet, you’ll get a number of benefits before feeding by prepared feeds:
