Looking for the healthiest dog chews can be hard, there are many concerns that we have as owners as to what’s in the products that we’re buying and it can be difficult to decipher what’s actually in them with all the technical and scientific jargon on the boxes.
Did you know that pets globally consume about a fifth of the world’s meat and fish. This trend is looking to rise with owner’s becoming more aware of what they’re feeding they’re dogs, and expecting the meat to be the same high standard as that of human-grade meat.
However, this trend of high-quality meat for your dog is having a large impact on the environment with acres upon acres of land being burnt and cut down to make room for more cattle and meat to be produced.
With vegetarianism and veganism becoming a growing trend in the human world, it seems to be of great interest in dogs becoming vegetarians too. With brands feeling the pressure to become a more eco-friendly pet supplier.
What can Dogs Eat?
Unlike cats, dogs are omnivores and can process food that isn’t just meat! They can eat a variety of foods as long as they’re fulfilling their nutritional needs.
If you are considering changing your dog’s diet please do so gradually and ensure that the food is slowly transferred into their diet over 7-10 days.
You can give your dog nutrients and healthy vitamins by adapting their diet or by giving them additional snacks or healthy treats, such as carrots or blueberries.
