Making Your Own Dog Food
by Adam Dickinson
I believe making your own dog food is the way to go. We people are very preoccupied of what we eat, how we look and our general health. But we very rarely think about what our pets eat. I believe that we are what we eat and the same goes for dogs. That is why it is very important that we choose a healthy diet for our beloved companions.
Cooking is already an ordeal for a lot of people and this is why many of you probably feed your pets with dehydrated food. I know that this solution is cheaper and faster but you have no idea how much you are hurting your pet.
I have a Maltese which is an absolute delight to have around. She is kind and patient and generally behaves well around everybody. She is also very smart and ingenious because she always senses bath time and hides somewhere new.
She may not like taking a bath but more recently I found out that she doesn't like her food either. These types of dogs are small-sized but they do have quite an appetite. What happened to me and more importantly to my dog shocked me.
One day she came to me and licked me a bit after which headed towards the other room but stopped half way through. She wasn't moving at all. At first I though she saw something although I couldn't see anything. Thinking that this is another one of her games I ignored here.
Not ten seconds have passed and she started shaking. In a few moments she lost all power in her legs, and simply lay on the floor. For five minutes I felt like I was living a nightmare. I called a pet ambulance but she recovered before they came.
I took her to the vet nonetheless and after some tests we found out that she had been infected with bacteria found in pork and beef meet. After this episode and a little research I started cooking for my dog. It takes me less than I though and my dog hasn't had a problem since. My advice is to try and cook for your dog at least 3 times a week. It will mean all the difference in the world to him.
