Healthy Food for Dogs
Meat should be 60-75% of your dog's diet. Aim for a variety of beef, chicken, rabbit, turkey, venison and lamb. My dogs don't love lamb but others do.
Fish is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. you can use canned fish but make sure there is no salt and is in water added such as sardines, wild salmon, tuna. With fresh fish like salmon make sure to remove all of the bones then you can poach or roast it.
Mint, oregano, parsley are great with aiding digestion and your dog's breath will smell minty fresh.
Veggies such as broccoli, celeriac, celery, zucchini, green beans, parsnips, peas, pumpkin, sweet potato and carrots are wonderful to incorporate into your dog's diet. You can cook them or if feeding raw make sure they are well purèed. Some dogs do like crunching on a carrot but it will probably pass through their digestive tract fairly undigested.
Fruit is great to give to your dog and high in antioxidants especially berries.
Ripe bananas, apples (do not feed apple seeds), berries (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries & raspberries), pears and watermelon. Great snacks or throw it into smoothies or puzzle toys. Always remove seeds.
Eggs are a great source of protein, amino acids, fatty acids and are easily digestible. You can even use the egg shells to make a calcium rich powder.
Can be given in moderation as a treat. You can buy low lactose cream cheese to use on puzzle toys like a licki mat or bowl as well as a kong.
Plain yogurt is a good source of probiotics in small quantities.
Members of the allium family such as onions and leeks can cause anemia in dogs and should be avoided, but small amounts of garlic from time to time can have beneficial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
