NATURAL FEEDING Pug
The benefits of feeding dogs homemade food using raw meat as the basis of the diet is a diet in which your dog will have clear eyes, clean teeth without tartar deposits, excellent shiny coat, excellent muscle mass, more energy. This is the healthiest diet for dogs of all breeds.
The basis of the diet is raw meat and bone:
wings and necks
beef trimmings from the head
and so-called muscle meat (for example, with beef legs),
canned fish with bones such as mackerel, pink salmon and sardines (in their own juice),
raw sea fish.
The percentage of meat should be 30-60 percent of the diet of the animal. The natural diet of the wolf in the wild consists of 15% of bones. A reasonable amount of raw bones in the diet will not harm your dog, while too many bones can lead to constipation, and excess calcium due to exceeding the recommended percentage can lead to excess calcium and thus block the absorption of beneficial minerals. If your dog’s stool is difficult and has a very light and crumbly texture, then you should reduce the amount of bone in your diet. Most dogs do not have problems absorbing raw bones, but some may have problems including suffocation and broken teeth when trying to crush too hard a bone. If your dog has problems with this, or you just transfer it to this food, or if it is a puppy, it is better to grind the bones beforehand, for example, with a hammer to beat them or cut into small pieces with culinary scissors. Keep in mind that if you stick to a meat to bone ratio of about 30-60 percent, your pug does not need extra calcium.
SUB-PRODUCTS IN THE DOG DIET.
Offal is an important part of the diet. The liver and kidneys contain a large amount of nutrients and should make up about 5 percent of the total diet. The heart is rich in taurine and other nutrients and can make up 5 to 10% of the daily diet. It is not worth increasing the amount of offal in the daily diet, as for some pugs this can lead to upset stools. Other internal organs such as the spleen, eyeballs, brains, testes are also quite nutritious and can be added to the daily menu in small quantities.
A separate point is to make an unpeeled scar, which in nutritional value is not inferior to muscle meat, but surpasses it in usefulness. It smells awful, of course, but most dogs adore it.
When compiling your dog’s diet, note that it should never consist of more than half of a single source of protein (such as chicken meat). Use a little of everything: chicken, turkey, beef, low-fat mutton and pork, duck and rabbit.
EGGS AND DAIRY PRODUCTS.
Dairy products such as low-fat yogurt, kefir and cottage cheese (up to 9%) are well tolerated by most dogs and provide the body with beneficial bacteria (probiotics). Milk fats are a source of medium chain triglycerides, a form of fat that can be easily absorbed by dogs with pancreatic problems.
