i)             Is it good to feed dogs a variety of food all the time?

You probably love my pet and may want to know what type of food would be best for him. Constantly changing the food you give to your dog can result in taste fatigue. This can eventually cause him to lose his appetite. You would know if your pet health likes a particular brand of dog food as he will eat it all up. Stick with that brand and don't be too fast in trying out the latest brand in the market when advertised. Choose food that is rich in protein such as chicken and meat protein.

 

ii)            What kind of dog feeder is best to use?

It will depend on the size of your dog. Choose a dog feeder that won't strain the neck muscles of your dog. A small bowl will do for a small dog but it won't be ideal for a tall dog as he will have to stoop to reach his food thereby causing a strain on his neck and shoulders. An aluminum feeder will be more durable than the plastic one so be sure to ask the sales staff as well before buying.

 

iii)           What are the best supplements I can give my dog?

If you want your pet to be in the best of health all the time, you don't want to limit him to just his everyday food. High quality dog vitamins normally provides complete nutrition already but supplements are still necessary especially for dogs with a weak immune system. Just make sure to consult your vet before starting supplementation and you follow the package directions.

 

Your vet should be able to give you the right advice on what kind of vitamins and supplements your pet will need based on the food you feed him. Supplements may be recommended particularly if your dog is recovering from a sickness. If you want to learn more about dog's health, you can visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog#Biology.

 

iv)           Can I use home remedies to relieve my dog's stress while driving?

 

Absolutely. But first, find out the cause of stress. It can be that he's anxious, sensitive to a moving vehicle or fearful as a result of health issues. Other causes could be dog food allergies and hormonal imbalance. Ginger has been used by many pet owners to relieve their dog's stomach problems. You can try using ginger extracts, capsules or the bulk dried ginger available at your nearest supermarket and health shops. Just be sure to read and follow the directions properly.
