All of the above toxins and dangers can readily be found in most kitchen garbage cans. Which is why published information from vets and authorities in the field list garbage as enemy number 1. Most pet owners spend a lot of time pet proofing their homes but overlook this one major danger... the kitchen trash. There are a number of solutions here, but it's something the pet industry has been slow to catch up on. It's a lot of work keeping pets from ingesting harmful things. Separating chicken bones, chocolate wrappers and chewing gum from the garbage for instance. Or just remembering what things can be thrown away and what can't. Then there's time in training the dog and even more time if you want to train your cat. A pet resistant or pet proof trash can lessen the burden on pet owners so that they may spend less time worrying about their pets and more time enjoying them.

Наvе уоu еvеr hаd а tіmе whеn уоu сlеаnеd уоur hоusе, іt’s nісе аnd tіdу оnе mіnutе.

It's not only about the frustration though, it is important to note that Dogtime indicates that, "household garbage poses the single largest threat to any pets health". That is why it is so important for every responsible pet owner to be proactive regarding how they handle household garbage. Еvеrу реt іs dіffеrеnt, but mоst trаsh cans can't keep pets out fоr sоmе соmmоn reasons, mostly because the pet is smart or persistent. That is why it's most іmроrtаnt tо purchase one guaranteed to keep your pet out such as the PawProof kitchen waste container. This will help keep the pet owner, worry free while busy or away from home. Though a PawProof will do the job while your out and about, it is still important to understand why your pet wants to get into the trаsh саn in the first place. Figuring this out will give you thе bеst сhаnсе аt putting а stор tо thе bеhаvіоr no matter where you and your pet happen to be.

Studies have shown that the nutritional needs of dogs change as they age. One way to ensure your dog has the best chance at health and well-being is to feed a complete and balanced diet. But how can you tell when to switch from puppy food to adult food, or when to start a senior diet? There's no one-size-fits all solution for how much dog food to feed your pet. It depends on a number of different factors such as your dog's age and breed, weight concerns, and pregnancy in females. Below are general guidelines for feeding dog food at different life stages: 1. Puppy: 16 calories per pound of body weight per day (8-25% dietary protein) 2. Growing or Mature: 12 calories per pound of body weight per day (22% dietary protein) 3. Senior 7 calories per pound of body weight per day Fluffy puppies are... Ages 4-6 weeks to 9-24 months Puppies should be fed puppy food until they are done growing. Some puppies grow faster than others and are considered mature at different ages. Small- and medium-sized puppies will reach maturity around 9 months of age; Large breed puppies can take longer. That means that large breed pups will need to be on a food specially formulated for their needs for longer than small or medium breed puppies. Puppies have different nutritional needs than adult dogs because they are growing. Puppies require more calories and more protein than adult dogs, but too many can be unhealthy. They need specific levels of calcium and phosphorus to support healthy bone development. When it comes to your puppy's diet, balance is key. You don't want too many (or too few) nutrients. This is why puppy food is so important for your pup's development. Large breed puppies benefit from a specially formulated large breed puppy food like American Journey Chicken & Sweet Potato Large Breed Puppy Food that has balanced calcium-to-phosphorus ratios and correct levels of protein and calories. It's also very important that you not overfeed puppies--especially large breed dogs, since overfeeding can lead to joint disease in adults. Feeding your new puppy is tricky, but a feeding guide on the back of their food bag can help you get started. The amount of food they need to eat will change when they grow, and during growth spurts their appetite will increase. As the puppy grows, it's important that you maintain a balanced diet for it so that it stays healthy but does not starve. You should be able to feel its ribs, but they should not be visible. If the ribs are sticking out, then you need to increase the amount fed by 10%. If you want to know when it's time to stop feeding your puppy, we recommend talking with your veterinary care team. Your vet will have the best knowledge about how much food your pup should be getting. Adults only The recommended age for this group is 1-6 years old. Worried about when to switch your puppy to adult food? Here are two important things you should know: 1) always check with your vet about the best time for the switch, and 2) start transitioning once they're done growing, as long as they aren't overweight. The best way to do this is to mix the two types of food together. One thing you could do is purchase a bag of adult food when you purchase the last bag of puppy food, then gradually increase the ratio of new food to old over about a week. Wondering how to transition your pet to a new and better food? We've got the answers. The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) recommends that an adult dog's diet consist of 18 percent protein, 5.5 percent fat and 50 percent carbohydrates with 2.5-4.5% fiber for a healthy gut. Allowing your dog to have the nutrient-balanced diet they deserve can be difficult given all the options on the market today. Luckily, there are options available that meet AAFCO standards and will provide your dog with a healthy, balanced meal. One such option is Blue Buffalo's Life Protection Formula Adult Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe. This recipe includes ingredients like peas, sweet potatoes, blueberries, and cranberries. When feeding your dog, it's important to consider the size of your dog. If you have a large breed, it may be helpful to give them a food that has been formulated for larger dogs, such as Eukanuba Large Breed Adult Dry Dog Food. This can help support joint health for your large dog. The best way to tell if your dog is getting the nutrition they need from a food is to monitor their condition at the beginning and end of the food trial. Does their haircoat seem healthy? Are their energy levels high? What about their stool quality and quantity? If everything looks good, it's likely that this food is right for your pooch. Posted by: When it comes to how much to feed your dog, start by looking at the feeding recommendations on the back of the bag. You want your pup to have an ideal body condition score--not too heavy and not too thin. A good way to figure out if your dog's weight is healthy would be to ask your veterinarian. If they do not knowledgeably answer, they will point you in the right direction, such as switching to a weight-loss diet, like Hill's Prescription Diet Metabolic Weight Management Chicken Flavor Dry Dog Food. Pregnant Dogs or Nursing Dogs As a dog owner you know that your pet's nutritional needs depend on its age. Pregnant and nursing dogs have different nutritional requirements than other adult dogs. As such, feed them food that is high in calories and protein since they need more of these nutrients. Ensure that the food is at least 22 percent protein to meet their dietary needs. One thing that is important for pregnant or nursing dogs is to provide them with enough calories and protein. It may seem like a challenge, but it's easier than you know. You can fulfill those needs by providing a pregnant or nursing dog with food that's meant for puppies who need more nutrients. Here's the good news: Unless your dog is overweight, she can have all the treats she wants. Senior dogs are especially needy when it comes to health and dental care. Senior dogs in particular require special attention to ensure they get the right treatment. They may also need medication for pain or arthritis, regular grooming, and special diets to keep them healthy and active. Senior Dogs are Ages 6-10 It depends on the dog's size and breed. But in general, larger dogs enter their senior years earlier than smaller breeds. For example, while the most-sized dogs might not be considered seniors until 6 years old, smaller breeds may not be considered seniors until 10 years old. Older dogs often have different needs than younger dogs. Obesity and decreased gastrointestinal function are common complaints amongst senior dog parents. That's why many senior dog foods are formulated with supportive nutrients, such as Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Mobility Support, which includes omega-3 fatty acids and glucosamines and chondroitins for joint health. It's important to know how much to feed your senior dog. The amount will depend on the size and amount of food your senior dog should eat. Follow the guidelines on the back of packages, do a hand test, or consult with your veterinarian to find out how much to feed them. This flowchart can help you choose the type of food your dog needs.

Unless you really know what you're doing, choosing a dog food can be a real minefield. You not only have to consider the best brand, but wet or dry kibble? Which of the thousand types of meat and vegetables should it contain? Our guide will help. Whether you decide on wet or dry, it's important to consult with your vet for their opinion. This article will discuss the main differences between wet and dry food options. Dogs need a healthy diet, but what kind should you get? Read this article to find out the difference between wet and dry dog food. There are two types of dog food: dry and wet. They both can provide nutritionally balanced diets, but the important difference is in how they are processed. Here's how wet food is processed. Pets need proper nutrition, just like humans. To meet the dietary needs of your pet, you'll need to prepare his food yourself, or buy it pre-made from a store. There are many steps in wet dog food processing, and we'll cover them here. Wet food starts with grinding protein sources, such as meat. This is then mixed with a gravy that contains nutrients, vitamins, and grains. Next, everything is cooked and sterilized to create the canned product that you see in the grocery store. Wet food is 50% water and dry food is 10%. On the label, you can see the level of maximum moisture under the Guaranteed Analysis. A wet food may have 78% moisture while a dry food may only have 10%. Here is a guide about how dry food is processed. While wet food is typically dominated by carbohydrates, dry food often includes. The meat mixture is ground up in order to create a dough that can be cooked. Once bread dough is cooked, it's extruded through a nozzle and then shaped by perforations to form kibble. The dough is dried out, sprayed with fats, oils, vitamins and minerals, and packaged so they don't spoil before they get to you. Dry dog food diets that include live probiotics provide your pup with the digestive and immune-boosting help they need. Both foods can meet your pets needs as long as you know what they are. This brings us to the next point... Wet and dry foods can be mixed. Mixing can be a way to have the best of both worlds but pet owners must still make sure they are meeting the nutritional needs of their pets. First have your vet calculate your furry friend’s daily calorie requirements for a healthy life. With that information pet owners should be able to mix their food based on their calorie intake requirements. It is important to remember to factor in treats as well when counting calories.
