While we may find lockdown difficult, our dogs are loving the quality time with us. So why not make their food enjoyable, too? Dogs may get bored of dog food and wish to have some change. I know you are celebrating summer with your pets in a very healthy way and so am I with my little Maxi. As a pet parent myself, I know how much our cute fur babies enjoy eating. During this time, they may become too lazy to eat. So what can be done? I found the time to enlist the things I feed my dog at home.
Take a look at what all food you can pick for your Dogs too.
1. Chicken and Rice:
It is not even difficult to cook. Buy chicken, wash well, no need to add spices / salt, add potatoes / carrots if available, boil the cookware, the food is ready. You can give this to your dog every day without injury. There are some dogs that don’t like dry food no matter what product you try. You can give them this food or combine dry food with a simple boiled chicken. Your dog may like it and if he does not like it, he is more likely to have digestive problems that have led to loss of appetite. Although I have tried 4-5 types of dry food, I give boiled food to each of my dogs daily during the day and feed only dry food at night. Ideally you should give your dog a full meal no more than twice a day.
2. Boiled Eggs:
Even if all dog breeds do not like eggs, they are completely useful for your dog and you can give him his boiled egg. Don’t give your dog chapati / bread / biscuits because they are gluten-rich.
3. Peanut Butter:
Dogs love peanut butter. Rich in protein, you can give it to your dog even though it is less popular in India. Also, make sure that the product you are using does not contain hydrogenated oils, excess salt and harmful sweets such as xylitol. Cheese also works well with a little handling.
Cheese makes a delicious treat for your dog as long as it is not lactose intolerant, which is a small percentage of dogs. Be sure to monitor your dog’s reaction after giving him a little cheese. Cottage cheese is usually a good choice for dogs.
5. Baby Carrots:
The fourth best human dog food on our list is baby carrots. Baby carrots are a low-calorie treat that is good for your dog’s teeth. In addition, carrots are high in fiber, beta carotene and vitamin A. Carrots can be eaten raw or cooked. You can also give your dog regular carrots, but be sure to cut them into small pieces of size to help prevent your dog from overcrowding.
This soft and tasty fruit comes with a healthy supply of fiber, potassium, copper, biotin and other vitamins such as B6 and C. Modest resources are the safest bet for a pet due to the large amount of fruit
A low-calorie drink with vitamins, minerals and fiber, your dog will enjoy! Cut into small pieces and season with fresh, frozen, boiled or cooked spices and see your pet walk over these vegetables.
This sweet and juicy fruit is safe as long as it is given without seeds and snatched from the animal. It is a powerful source of essential vitamins (A, B1, B6 & C) minerals (iron and calcium) and fiber.
A moderate amount of spinach from time to time and what you have is a healthy hairy friend next to you! Spinach works wonders for health and to deal with intestinal disorders. This leafy veggie contains fiber and the following vitamins: A, C, B and K.
This tropical delicacy is often the weakness of many insects including canine senses. Absolutely avoid feeding on fruit flesh. But remember that you cannot feed a leaf or a hole in it to an animal. Mango is very healthy for dogs because it is a rich source of Vitamin A, B6, C, E, flavonoids, antioxidants (cancer prevention), and fiber (digestive aids). All of this fruit-based beauty also helps to strengthen the immune system and lower cholesterol.
11. Potatoes/Sweet potatoes:
You should never be fed raw. When you are done with the preparation wait for it to cool down before serving. A small portion given to a dog from time to time will definitely do good by giving it extra iron. Never use oil / butter, milk, salt or spices when cooking potatoes as they can only be given a pooch in its clear / empty form.
12. Soya Chunks
Soya is good source of protein. If you are vegetarian can’t feed dog non-vegetarian food like Meat, fish than it is best source of protein to give as dog food. It is far cheaper than Non vegetarian food. Many Dog food already consist of Soya. May be your dog is already having Soya as his dog food with different name.
Soya is one of My dog favourite food.
So, Dear pet parents, I hope I could give you enough ideas to make summer fun for your dogs. Make your dog try out these refreshing summer Food and let me know if they enjoyed it.
