Have you thought properly about your dog’s food? If not – and you’re currently just relying on whatever you found on the shelf first at your local food store – then it’s high time that you had a proper think about the different options and what they can each offer for your pup. The thing is, proper nutrition can make all the difference to your dog’s lifespan, as well as to their quality of life during that time. Something as simple as a food that contains a source of lutein or vitamin A can help to prevent cataracts that might otherwise leave your dog blind. Likewise, avoiding foods that contain too much sugar can help to prevent the onset of diabetes – which is no fun at all for a dog. Getting enough calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D, can all help to prevent joint and bone problems that often serve as the start of a downhill slide for older dogs. And antioxidants can meanwhile keep your dog looking and acting spry well into old age! All these things are very important to consider, so here are some of the best dog foods to suit any type of dog.
