In the scorching sun in summer, dogs always have a bad appetite and look listless in the face of delicious food.

Five Principles of Dog Healthy Diet Management in Winter


Have a reasonable portion size

In winter, the temperature is low, so the food cools faster than in summer. It is best to let the dog eat up the food when it is not cold, which is also better for the dog's stomach.

Such an effect requires the dog parents to reasonably distribute the amount of food, and it is a good strategy to eat less and more meals.

You must know that if you give too much food at one time, it will only make the food cool and the dog has not finished eating.

[Editor's Tip]

In addition, dog parents should be aware that after a hot summer, dogs may have an appetite in winter.

When the dog's appetite is particularly good, help the dog to control the food intake.

Balanced Nutrition Facts

Supplementing nutrition and energy in winter is the primary thing for dog diet management. Only by taking in enough nutrition and energy, can dogs be more resistant to cold in winter.

In cold weather, a dog's body heats up a lot.

Therefore, in the winter feed, cream, offal, milk, foods containing vitamin A and foods with more fat content should be added. Such feeds can quickly replenish calories and enhance the dog's cold resistance.

[Editor's Tip]

Of course, these foods cannot be fed to dogs for a long time, otherwise it will be counterproductive.

For example, dogs who drink milk for a long time can cause indigestion and even diarrhea.

Therefore, the nutrients should be balanced, and dogs should not be allowed to eat only one type of food.

Open meat supply

We humans take supplements in autumn and winter, and so can dogs, but they are not tonic.

In winter, the supply of meat can be properly opened to dogs, so that dogs can accumulate fat and do a good job of keeping warm in winter.

[Editor's Tip]

In addition, I will teach you a secret recipe for dog parents. You can cook lily, lotus seeds, yam, white lentils, walnuts, peanuts, red dates, etc., mash them, and mix them with dog food.

Dogs who eat too much meat will be prone to bad breath. Occasionally giving dogs such medicated meals can make dogs healthier.

No additional supplements required

Veterinarians and trainers agree that many well-known brands of dog food have calculated balanced nutrition for dogs, and normal dogs only need to eat enough dog food every day, and do not need to eat additional supplements.

If your dog needs to take additional medicines or supplements, it is best to consult a doctor first and give proper instructions, because if the dog eats too much of this type of mineral supplement, the harm may outweigh the benefit.

[Editor's Tip]

There is no specific relationship between the food supplements and the seasons, and it is not necessary to take supplements in winter, but depends on the actual needs.

For some vitamin-based snacks, dog parents can give their dogs a reward. For example, during the training process, they can give dogs a small amount of these snacks, and do not overdo it.

Sick puppies eat well

For sick dogs, for example, dogs with anemia should eat more chicken liver, pork liver, lean meat and eggs in moderation, because iron and protein are important raw materials for hemoglobin.

For the first 30 days after birth, puppies mainly rely on breast milk, and their parents do not need to feed other food.

[Editor's Tip]

The diet of a sick dog should listen to the veterinarian's opinion. Dog parents should not add nutrients to the feed at will, so as not to increase the burden on the dog's digestive system.

The diet management of puppies should be adjusted according to the degree of growth and development of puppies.

Three weeks after birth, the puppy begins to grow teeth. At this time, in addition to feeding it dog milk, some weaning food should also be added.

After two months of birth, the puppy's deciduous teeth are basically long, and the puppy food should be gradually changed.

From 2 to 5 months after birth, it is the time to develop eating habits.

Eating is the biggest! If you want your dog to survive the winter in a healthy way, dog parents can't relax in terms of diet management!
