What food you give your dog is one of the most important decisions you will make for your pooch. Good nutrition influences every aspect of his life. How puppies grow, behaviour, habits, appearance and overall wellbeing are all closely connected to nutrition.
Lower-price foods may indicate cheap ingredients and generally requires higher daily portions to provide the same amount of nutrition found in high-quality foods.
Like humans, every pet is different and the amount of food your pet needs varies with age and activity level. To help your dog maintain good health through the different life stages, talk to the Petworld team, who can help you make the right choice for your pet.
Wet food is very palatable – however, it is very soft as it is made up of around 80 per cent water. This means your dog won’t get enough nutrients, and the food won’t be hard enough to support the development of his teeth and gums. A good quality wet food is fine when mixed in with dry dog food. It has been scientifically proven that feeding your pet a good quality, dry food increases their life span and helps to maintain good health. Raw food is also a fantastic option.
