More and more inseparable friends, more and more involved in our lives, more and more "humanized". Our four-legged friends have conquered a truly important place in our lives: they live. They eat and sleep with us, they run around the house, they travel on our car. They are our best friends, our children, the difference between man and animal becomes more and more subtle, so that the attention for our dogs grows more and more.

There are however some considerations to make. The most important aspect to consider in order to make this pleasant cohabitation better is the hygienic-sanitary one. Behind those sweet eyes is hidden a nature that brings our beloved hairy to dig with the legs in the strangest places, that soft coat can hide snares and pests. So here it becomes necessary to regularly wash our dog, to regularly complete the antiparasitic prophylaxis, to provide it with a flea collar and often disinfect the points where it is usual to rest at home.

His health is as important as ours, and even for him nutrition plays a fundamental role.

How to get oriented?

Every dog must receive a diet appropriate to his age and to the phase of life he is living, calibrated also according to the type of life he performs and his size. A puppy needs nutrients different from those of a 10-year-old dog, needs to strengthen and train teeth and gums and to have energy to run and jump all day, as only a young dog can do. To understand how it is best to move, the vet will certainly be able to provide useful information, knowing how to recommend brands and products suitable for your little friend. In stores, physical or online, you will find a wide assortment of products divided into dry and wet. (try clicking here to get an idea).

Usually, dry foods are ready and balanced, without needing to add anything else.

They are divided into four categories:

Puppy - Designed for puppies, with a high intake of calcium and vitamins

Regular - For adult dogs that move regularly

Premium - Always for adult dogs, but who perform more intense physical activity

Light - They have a lower protein level and are designed for dogs that, for various reasons (age, convalescence, lifestyle) move little or are overweight.

Wet foods, those contained in cans, are tastier and your friends will most likely prefer them, but they require more of the product to be nutritious (also cost the costs). Even the wet products are divided according to the age of the dog and his lifestyle, even you will find suitable for particular diseases (heart, kidney etc.), but it will be your vet to tell you how to move in this case (the cost of these foods can be really high). To save or for convenience, many people feed their dog with homemade food. This choice is to be evaluated well, because not all the foods ingested by us humans are a panacea for dogs. In general, avoid giving them your leftovers and absolutely abolish milk and fat. Do not give them raw meat and fish (beware of bones!), Have them cooked in a pan before putting them in the bowl; the bones are good for the teeth but they are not nourishing, choose the big ones and avoid the chicken ones (they are too small and could be dangerous); yes to cheese and eggs (cooked) a couple of times a week; ok to cereals and pasta (cooked), less often rice; yes to bread but not fresh (it could be difficult to digest); good fruit and vegetables (maybe to mix with pasta). If you have any questions, consult your vet, your dog's health is not a joke but something to be taken very seriously. The more you look, the more your vision together will be long and happy!
