Like any pet owner, you probably want to know if this is true, or not.
Guest Post by Daily Dog Stuff
No doubt you are probably looking for the best food to feed your dog. Many commercial dog foods claim to be healthy or top-of-the-line but have conflicting reviews.
From cheap to expensive brands, wet to dry, raw to dehydrated—there is no shortage of selection.
With so many choices on the market, it is hard to feel like you are making the best decision.
Let's see what this dehydrated dog food is all about!
Dehydrated dog food is made by slowly removing moisture from raw dog food. This means that your dog's food is dehydrated from its most natural state, keeping its essential nutrients intact.
This greatly reduces any processing and creates a nutrient-rich, well-balanced dog food free of preservatives.
Since this is done with slow, warm heat rather than high-pressure heat, it prevents the much-needed vitamins and minerals from being destroyed. This means it is not necessary to pack them with artificial ingredients.
Dehydrated dog food gives your pet all the benefits of a raw diet with a few extra perks.
Some advantages of dehydrated food are:
Because it is full of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, it is suitable for puppies and seniors. It is also easy to chew and very digestible, making it easy on their stomachs.
While every dog is different, chances are your dog will love the taste of dehydrated dog food.
There are plenty of brands and ingredients to choose from. Finding one your dog will adore shouldn't be a problem!
Dehydrated food is prepped by adding a small amount of warm water to the food. Allow it to soften for only a few minutes before serving.
It has a softer consistency and the aroma is very pleasing to your dog. The warm water helps to heighten the smell, bringing out the elements of the meat and other ingredients.
This should increase their desire to chow down!
Maybe your little pup is a little thick around the middle. Wanting a food selection to help them with weight control is understandable. While there is no one right answer for the type of dog food for all dogs, exploring is a great option. The more natural, the better!
As your dog ages, protein is essential. Since dehydrated foods store most of the original nutrients from their raw state, it is a great choice.
Dehydrated dog food also comes in many different selections. You can look at the ingredients that you know your dog needs to ensure they are getting the correct type of dehydrated food.
Dogs are sensitive to varying ingredients in foods. Usually, allergies are multi-factorial, meaning they are allergic to more than one ingredient. Pinpointing allergens can be a really difficult process.
Once you have it pegged, you will want to choose a food that has no traces of the ingredient. Dehydrated food is great, as there are very few ingredients, so there is much less to decipher!
There are plenty of options for choosing a dehydrated allergen-free dog food. Delicious treats can be difficult to find as well. But you can find a list of hypoallergenic dog treats that best suit your dog's diet.
You can find the perfect dehydrated food and scrumptious snack for your dog! It just may take a bit of research.
Because of the many advantages of dehydrated dog food, what do you and your dog have to lose? It is convenient to prepare, easy to store, nutritious, and your dog will love it! Give your best friend a little taste of freshness.
I'd like to thank Daily Dog Stuff for taking the time to share their thoughts and recommendations with us on feeding your dog, be it young or old, dehydrated dog food.
A tip from me: Dehydrate Chicken Chow and make it into doggie biscuits. They look just like Chicken Nuggets, I kid you not, when they're fully dried!
It's easy to reconstitute them too. Just add water and let it sit. Then stir well, and Fido won't know that the food was previously dry!
Thanks for stopping by "dehydrated dog food safe for puppies and seniors," and when this post was first sent in to me, I had a quiet chuckle. Why?
I wondered if folks would think the headline referred to puppies and senior PEOPLE! We've heard of old ladies eating canned cat food... (I sincerely hope that's not true!).
