Many of us regard our pet Pomsky dogs on the same level we regard other family members. We will buy them presents at Christmas time, make sure they are sleeping on a comfortable bed and even take our dogs on vacations with us. But after all that, many of us are still unsure or what exactly we are feeding our pets.
Grab a tin of dog food and have a read of the ingredients. As a human being, does the ingredients list sound healthy to you? Does it mention many additives? The exact ingredients of some of the big dog food brands can be a worry when you take the time to read what is in them. This is the time when we feel it may be time to take a more natural route when it comes to feeding our beloved dog.
Deciding to switch to a natural diet for your Pomsky will take some time to plan but once you have done a little research, you will find it just as easy to feed your pet with natural ingredients as it was to feed your dog canned dog food.
Try and think raw and organic when it comes to planning a natural diet. Ingredients such as raw meat, raw eggs, vegetable pulp (from carrots, celery, etc), turkey necks and other poultry can make a good ingredients for a natural dog food diet plan.
And in the long run, your dog will look healthier with nice looking fur, strong teeth, more energy and a longer life to enjoy.
If you need more advice on specific needs for your own dog, take the time to sit down and speak with your vet.
Senior Pomsky Diet
It may not be a nice subject but we can not stop our dogs from ageing. This is just a natural process all living things go through. Just like we humans begin to adjust our eating habits and diets as we advance in years, it is advisable to do the same for our dogs. A senior dog will benefit from some adjustments in their diet which will contribute to the quality of their life.
And I am sure that you have seen the adverts for the ‘Senior’ dog food from the major dog food brands. Some even suggest that kibble is better than tinned dog food for older dogs. But in reality, what do they know about YOUR dog?
There are only two people who can decide on the best eating plan for your older Pomsky. Those two people are you and your vet. And common sense will dictate what your dog will eat.
To make my point clear, if your older dog is fit and healthy with no known medical concerns or issues, then you must be doing something right so why change anything? On the other hand, if there are any illnesses, your vet will be able to tell you if it is dietary related. That should be the time to consider tweaking the diet of your older dog.
Dog food diets for older Pomskies are usually lower in calories as an older dog may not be getting as much exercise to burn the amount of calories it once could. The diet will also include essential vitamins and other nutrients which are crucial to keeping a dog as healthy and as active as possible.
In conclusion, as your dog gets older you must monitor their health more closely. You should only adjust your dogs diet based on health concerns and not because they have reached a certain age.
